Boardshorts, T and Rainbow slippers.
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.
button down short sleeve plaid shirt
some sort of golf hat, usually Callaway.
From head down.
Sun glasses - in car if required.- Generic
Business shirt -Generic button down - Earthy colors- Im told they are Autumn colors- usually no tie
Cargo pants - LAPG Dark color (black, brown, dark khaki,).
Belt - Dark brown leather.
Pocket /belt stuff - Leatherman Wave original, in its brown leather pouch.
Socks - Generic dark.
Shoes - Timberland - Dark brown lace ups - lasted me 18 years everyday use! - 2 sole replacements!
I think I fit in the tactical/functional category of people ;-)
If I'm not working I use
cargo pants (5.11 taclite pro/Stryker pants or helicon-tex UTL)
5.11 t-shirt, polo or shirt
Smith optics sunglasses
5.11 rain jacket or wind jacket
Lowa zaphyr boots in khaki
5.11 operator belt
5.11 or no name cap
Also carry a helicon fleece jacket if its cold outside
5.11 light fleece hat/Helicon Beenie
Typically, days on/off are the same :
Sport t-shirt / Craghoppers shirt
Cargo pants/shorts (mainly TAD F10's and Craghoppers)
--need a new belt--
5/10 Dome shoes
While at work: Casino Security/Surveillance Officer
Full Suit, but with a Polo underneath instead of a shirt and tie.
Black leather belt (hopefully getting a different one soon) has to be load bearing though.
Dress shoes right now, but I plan on getting something a bit easier to run in. We are permitted any footwear as long as it is black.
Any one of my 15 watches. Usually an Invicta or something dressy...sometimes my pathfinder.
OD green 550 bracelet
While at home
Usually gym shorts and some gun manufacturer related t-shirt, asics shoes.
When its colder, LAPG Pants. Oakley polo shirts, Oakley jackets, carhartt pants, random t shirts.

Smith and Wesson M&P40 w/ Disantis holster

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
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.
Now that I'm back at school:
Goruck or Surefire or community college volleyball cap
Hanes grey T shirt w/pocket
Levi 501 or Duluth firehose pants
Nike Roshe Run or Vans or Rainbow slippers
Business casual, usually Brooks Brothers button down dress shirts, chinos and Allen Edmonds dress shoes.
The daily uniform is as follows (from the ground up):
Haix Airpower R1 rescue boots
Propper EMS BDU's with black trauma shears and a SOG Flash II.
Blackhawk Tactical CQB riggers belt (Leatherman OHT and Streamlight Polystinger on that)
Under Armor undershirt
Company-issued Elbeco navy uniform shirt
Oakley Half Jacket XLJ's 2.0
Navy blue Under Armor flex fit ball cap
Boots- Wolverine waterproof leather with 8 inch shank
Pants- Dickies casual work pants. (Carpenter loop, side pocket on each leg, deep front and back pockets, comfortable as hell and durable enough for my job working with military/police dogs)
Shirt- Company uniform shirt
Civilain tactical style cargo shorts
moisture wicking t-shirt of some sort
Polo/button down shirt with Co logo
Cargo shorts/pants depending on weather
Truspec nylon belt
SpongeBob tactical special ops delta force SEAL boxer briefs w/ homemade paracord suspenders to avoid slippage during night time ops

Truspec nylon belt
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
Work: Khaki pants & polo shirt in the summer, Khaki pants & sweater in the winter. Generic black shoes.
Home: Jeans or shorts & t-shirt. Cross training shoes.
Western boots, jeans w/ rigger's belt, button up/t-shirt. This is almost every day without fail. I classed it as outdoors wear.
At work (refinery) : 1 Piece Nomex Jumpsuit, Red Wing 11" Pull Ons, other PPE
At Home: Lightweight Shorts, T shirt or button down, Rainbow Sandals for most of the year
Jeans, sweater or flannel, Wolverine 1000 mile boots or Adidas for about a month or two

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.
