Yes, always dark trousers (hopefully charcoal grey).When I was a kid in Taiwan, I remember seeing Mormons dress in white short sleeve shirt +tie and black pants, black dress shoe, never paid attention then to knew if the shirt were button down or not
Agreed.The Mormons I’ve met often do wear a white short sleeved button down shirt, but it’s rarely linen and always with a tie. And a smile.
Those shoes (the type not the color ... I'd go slightly lighter) make it work for me. I keep a fair number of short sleeve shirts ... mostly in linen and seersucker. But now that I spend summers in the PNW ... they don't get much wear unless I travel.I think Simon’s outfit is fine and have no issues with short sleeved shirts. Personally I’d wear something a little more funky but that’s just my personality.
I'm recalling a dark and stormy night when two (they always arrive in pairs) handsome young missionary fellows -- white shirts, ties, dark trousers, and dark coats (it was somewhat cold) -- showed up at the door. As a gay man how could I turn them away? I'm not a heartless cad. I invited them in for a warm (neither alcoholic nor caffeine laden) drink. It went nowhere fast ... but we did have an interesting discussion ... and I did later discover that they'd scheduled me for baptism.
