    perhaps many of them just couldn't afford new clothing.

    I must say the JWs here did have some sort of dress code. I felt sorry for brothers when they had to wear suits in the african sun. Those hot days - a blessing to be a woman.

    Comfortable clothes. That's what matters. You are stuck in your monkey suit for the entire summer day.
    I wore a colorful shirt so you couldn't see that I had no t-shirt on under it. I wore comfortable shoes, regardless of whether they were the best ones for the suit or not. I generally wore dockers-type pants- blue or khaki, and carried the jacket over my arm. I had to have the jacket because I would take on some assignment, but they usually didn't say anything about me not actually wearing it. The jacket was busy so it would match virtually any solid colored pants. Who the hell cares beyond that whether it was sharp or loud or too casual? Sure, the single young guys had to impress and the clowns on the platform had to wear suits, but the rest should be comfortable.

    I will grant that comfort includes "what others think about me" to some people. If you are like that, then dress to the nines for mental comfort.

    Too tight- that's not comfortable at all. I would imagine that was a case of gaining weight but not having money.

    Print flower shirt, khaki trousers with lots of pockets for my gear, and comfortable slip on Merril shoes. Fluck 'em if they don't like it. I am interested in knowing my Almighty Creator, not trying to impress some Fortune 500 drones.
