Love reading about the rules of business dress on this board. Wonderful information that would be great to put to use but.... I don't work. I'm a stay at home dad. If I have the need to wear a suit once in the next year it will be a busy year. My wife recently told me that she loves having the house clean and the kids happy and dinner on the table and as far as she's concerned I never have to go back to work. That was a bit of a shock, I've always planned on going back to work, though with a one year old at home I'm still looking at 4 more years before I'd be working agian and that's assuming no more kids, which hasn't been ruled out. If you were in my situation how would your dress change? I've been gravitating toward button downs, chinos, sport coat with the occasional bow tie. This has me significantly more dressed up than most people I meet which sets a good example for my kids and gets me treated much better by service people in stores and other stay at home parents. It also allows me to get thrown up on and shrug it off, most everthing can go in the wash and nothing is terribly expensive. So show me you dreams here, if you din't have to work but had to care for two kids all day, what would your wardrobe look like?
