Fashion "Rules"

Talking about wedding guest attire has made me realize a lot of the fashion guidelines I was raised with are pretty much outdated these days.  Things like guys not wearing  ball caps indoors, women wearing white only between Memorial Day and Labor Day, no LBDs before 5 pm, and hose with every outfit are gone.  Do you adhere to any of these guidelines anymore?  Are there any fashion guidelines you DO adhere to?

I didn't say it was unique to RCC, I said the cahtolic church is one of the most dressed down churches, And it is.  I have a lot of experience with other churches actually, DH's family is methodist and presbyterian both, I've been inside those dors and Iv'e been to quite a few inter-faith services to know dress code in them is more upscale than the way catholics, in general present themselves on an average Sunday.  Even Joel Osteen's followers dress up more than the RCC. 

Some experience with my church isn't enough ducky, You've been wrong in other claims about my church too.

I can attest to the RCC and the type of clothes that is being worn now compared to 20 + years ago. It has gotten a lot more lax as well as other places also that you would have found people dressing up to go to.

"DH's family is methodist and presbyterian both, I've been inside those dors..." You do know that there are many, many more denomitions than RCC, Preslyterian and Methodist, right?

 Actually you said, and I quote, "The catholic church is one of the most dress down churches there is..." 

Do you have proof?  A link?  Anything to back up your claim?

I don't really *dress up* for church on a regular basis, but have a few personal boundaries that I won't cross. I don't wear shorts and/or tank topsor t-shirts to church or church events...ever. Whether or not I let the kids wear shorts depends on the specific shorts and what the event is, no tanks, muscle shirts or spag. straps though. No hats. No pants or shoes with holes.... these are very personal though, as I know that many of the people attending our church don't even own pants without holes, or anything other than a plain t-shirt....Dressing up is relative.

"Ducky, the priests are all dressed up ;) The congregation isn't necessarily." Eh, I don't think it's a RCC thing, though.

"What's your experience with a RCC mass? " I have some experience. How much experience do you have with denominations outside of your own, Jambles?
