    In my former position as an information officer, I dressed smart/business casual for work.

    Now that I am a freelancer, no two days are alike, and my outfit varies from day to day, depending on social setting, weather, assignment and time of the year. Normally, I prefer a rather casual style, but i detest wearing sportswear for anything besides sport. Most of the year, you'll find me wearing dark blue jeans and some some sort of sweater over a long sleeved grandfather shirt. When going out, I normally wear classic black Doc Martens 1461, whatever jacket mother nature calls for, and some sort of six pence/flatcap.

    Pool cleaning and repair is ridiculously hard on clothing. After wrecking a Carhartt tee the first week, my wife ordered a case of old navy cargo shorts and tees for something like $7 and $5 each, respectively.

    Bates 8" side zip steel toes (left over from my last job in a saw room)

    Poseidon Products 1.75" web belt with cobra buckle

    G-Shock

    Oakley's :)

    In the summer it's board shorts or Adidas gym? shorts and a comic book tee. Chacos or Adidas sandal/flip flop things. With the gym shorts it's a neck knife-Spartan Phobos- and with the board shorts my pocket sheath w/HEST Original. Plus a bag of some sort but that's a whole other thread...

    Winter(god give me Winter!!!) is cargo pants. I tried wearing jeans for a few years not having worn them for years and I don't think I'll buy another pair. For some reason a whole wears in the crotch of every pair I've bought. I have a pair of Proper BDU pants that are almost eight years old and still holding up great. So I just bought two more pair of Proper BDUs in OD this time.
    Shoes depend on mood and weather. I'll wear my Chacos well into the winter. Then usually tennis shoes or Doc's when I must.
    Long underwear tops(the old school waffle-ey kind) with yet more comic book tee shirts. I have a slightly stupid number of comic tees.
    An Alternative Earth dark grey hooded sweatshirt. Love this brand, soft and warm with a deep hood and ages without piles. Got a bunch when a family member got them from work. A bunch of patches, sewing and ironing later I have a cool unique collection of hoodies.
    As for a jacket it's either a leather biker jacket(because I always wanted one) or my North Face Bomber. The Bomber more often because I love putting pens in the arm pockets. I have others but those are my two favorites.
    Also, I have a white and a blue G-Shock. Or if I'm feeling old fashion my Victorinox pocket watch.

    I work In a very casual environment for the most part. Jeans, Adidas sambas, t shirt if I'm in the cafe or button down if I'm visiting potential accounts, smart wool socks.

    Most everything I own is Patagonia, J. Crew for button downs( no tailoring for me off the shelf for the most part) or random t-shirt companies.

    Though I'd like to get a TAG jacket and a few shirts this year ;)

    I voted for uniform civilian, I work in the automotive service management industry. I work at a dealership and we have company issued polo's. We can wear dress pants of our choice as long as they are grey and aren't too casual. I wear a lightweight dress pant in the summer with either Ecco or Clark's footwear. Quality shoes make all the difference when you are on your feet all day. In the winter, we get to be a little more casual so I go to a Redhead cargo pant with Ecco Track 5 plain toe boot.
    When not at work, I rarely wear pants, even in the winter. I can be found in cargo shorts, Keen sandles and usually a t-shirt or polo. When it gets cooler, I will throw on a fleece and/or lightweight windproof shell.
