    In certain settings -- and that includes most of Montana -- and in certain temperatures ... flannel and jeans are completely appropriate. Of course, some of us have different wardrobes for the city and even those country envoronments that are more 'gentrified.'

    Just visiting or do you live in the Treasure State? I'm up in the NE corner of Montana. And yes, flannel and jeans or pearl-button snap shirt and jeans. If you visit a lawyer/ banker (same guy), he may wear a bolo tie.

    Perhaps it's fortunate for those who live there, but the northeastern part of Montana is beautiful and underrated. The rolling hills, the solitude, the quiet ... it can be very beautiful.

    Absolutely. And I wouldn't trade those qualities for ... well, not for much. When it comes to buying clothes, thank God for the internet.

    Where do you wear them? I spent a couple of weeks in Montana a few years ago, (Billings and Columbus) and I felt overdressed in khakis and a sport coat.

    I've been to quite a few black tie events in Montana ... the last at the Yellowstone Museum of Art in Billings.

    I'm a museum director so I wear sport coat/ tie to work, but sometimes ocbd and jeans. Some days it's meetings with politicians and donors, some days it's moving crates and painting. Depends. Black tie, very rare, but does come up in the museum world periodically. YAM throws some great events, by the way. We're doing a Titanic thing (screening A Night to Remember) next Saturday and considering wearing tux and life jacket for my short talk.

    No, the boss at YAM is a nice lady named Robyn. I'm at a smaller museum in Sidney, which is a combined art and history museum and performing arts venue. I'm solidly a history guy, but I do get excited about art too. A pretty nice gig. But, I'm also on various boards and committees and councils so I get to see my other Montana museum peeps with some regularity.
