    There is an entire forum devoted to this sort of thing. Its called Streetwear and Denim. For labor intensive activities, like killing small birds, cutting the lawn, or rebuilding a deck, free college T-shirts and 17.99 Calvin Klein Costco denim specials will get the job done.

    Typical weekend gadding about attire (going to the market, the laundry, the pet food store, miscellaneous errands of that type): open-necked sports shirt (polo shirt very rarely), ascot occasionally, khakis or similar cotton trousers, dress casual shoes (usually A-E Dress Casuals), fedora or Panama hat (very frequently). In cool weather I'll frequently wear a sport coat with such apparel. It goes without saying that the jacket always is mated with a pocket square.



    ----Now that my friend, is a Sartorialist and hardly streetwear and denim.

    Typically summer Sunday. Untucked T&A button down, jeans or Paul Stuart shorts, and Haviana flops.

    I don't have a habit of dressing down for even minor activities.

    Not even in a Sulka dressing gown and Lobb London felt bath slippers?

    You can't go out looking like that.

    However, for your inner Continental, perfect.

    Favorite:
    Linen square-cut shirt, MTM in Thailand last trip.
    Tommy Bahama linen shorts.
    Rockport flip-flops or Taryn Rose boat shoes, no socks (and GASP... I don't own a boat!)

    Sacramento weather requires dressing down when you're out and about-- 117 degrees yesterday.

    Typically: Old Navy cargo shorts (fathers of young children need lots of pockets!), perhaps with paint (and, more recently, shoe polish [​IMG] ) stains. Cheapo short-sleeve shirt, either button-down or t-shirt (usually whatever my daughter chooses). The dreaded flip-flops.
    If it's too cold for flip-flops (not an issue of late), athletic socks and LLBean comfort mocks or my most recently-retired set of running shoes (there's a progression from wearing them to run to wearing them around town to wearing them to garden, paint, or lay cement).

    Casual for me is Armani pants and a sweater of some sort, or perhaps a polo or linen shirt in the summer.

    My aim, however, is to have a big enough rotation of borrelli jackets and bespoke shirts so that I can avoid wearing this stuff as often because I much prefer the jacket look, even for errands.

    If I know I'm going to be at the beach or sweating in the sun all day, I'll wear the armani pants and linen shirt.
