I've lost about 80% of my vision this year to the point of being legally blind, so I've been walking with a cane since March. Honestly it's gotten pretty beat up and raggedy looking, or wabi sabi if you're a fan of TeenFA on Reddit. I don't have many formal events besides prom, homecoming, band banquet and the occasional wedding or fancy dinner, but I would be embarrassed to use it during those events. I know most people won't care, but it's a personal thing to me. If I'm going to be wearing a suit, I want to have clean dress boots, a fresh laundered and ironed shirt, and a clean, not beat up cane. My mom and girlfriend seem to think this is ridiculous but my dad and best friend agree with me. Should I buy a new cane for occasions when I need to dress business casual or more formal, or is my beat up dirty cane okay?
