    This week I want to do something that may be a bit outside the comfort zone for some regular CM posters, but should go down well with the ones posting in the CM casual thread and also some guys from the SW&D side: Work Wear!

    I'm gonna leave the rules vague, to get as much as possible out of each contribution. The only rule is that your outfit has to include a workwear item, or a general workwear vibe.

    All outfits to be posted before Saturday May 12th, midday CET.

    Does "work" include construction work? Asking for a friend.

    So this is a SW&D challenge? That's cool, but I'm just wondering. :-D

    Not necessarily, I'd like to see both SWD & CM interpret workwear. I think it mixes well with CM casual style.

    Here’s what I wore today. Changing out the radios, cables, and roof antennas at all the fire houses in the city.

    I don't wear many traditional workwear pieces, but I've loved STORY Mfg's time jackets (modern interpretation of prison jackets).

    Wait, is this what we actually wear to work?
    or are we playing dressups?

    @Dirt and I are union electricians, and I’m sure there are others that dabble in construction as well (paging @jet ). That said, I’ve no issue with workwear inspired outfits. Hickory striped overalls with denim bow ties and cap toe boots make me chuckle, and sometimes I see random pieces being thrown together with dress clothes, but whatevs.
    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
