What This Man Wears

Over on Ricochet, Molly Hemmingway put up a post on clothing that men should not wear (“What Not to Wear, Male Edition”). I only looked at 10 of the 200 comments, but I can’t help but think that some people are way too worried about what I might wear. Next, they’ll by trying to tell me that I shouldn’t cut my own hair.

For the record, I regularly violate several of the items in the short list. Yes, I wear button down short sleeve shirts. Sometimes, on Sundays, I’ll wear one with a tie. I have concluded, however, that they look much better tucked in, with a military tuck. Untucked, they cause my torso to lose all shape. I should further note that 75% of the time, if I wear a long-sleeved shirt, the sleeve gets rolled up to just below the elbow. I have long arms, and most of the times, the sleeves are too short.

I also wear running shoes when I’m not running. They’re more comfortable. The give my feet cushion and support and allow them to breathe. The shoes I wear to work make my feet hurt and sweat, which I really don’t like.

I like wearing shorts. They cause me to sweat less (is there a theme here?), and they are less restrictive. Sometimes, I even wear a button down short sleeve shirt with shorts and running shoes. Egad!

Item 5 on the short list of forbidden male clothing is tribal necklaces. I hope that doesn’t include my miraculous medal necklace or my brown scapular. I don’t wear them to be trendy, though. On the other hand, you won’t catch me wearing any heavy gold chains.

Hi Kirt...I just found your blog tonight after reading your post on Father Corapi. It was just tonight that I heard about his situation. I hadn't had access to EWTN for 5 years, so a lot has happened.

Anyways, your post was funny! I can picture you with shorts, running shoes and a long sleeve shirt with a tie...and a miraculous necklace! :)

When I worked as a grocery cashier, I still remember this older man that came through my line that had a miraculous necklace and a cross around his neck. It made my day, and I felt Holy just greeting him and helping him with his groceries for that day. I think it is important what we wear, and how we present ourselves. That man in my line was at least 10 years ago, and I still remember him like it was today. We can encourage others by our dress and our crosses and our speech and manners that are Holy and in contrast to the world! ♥♥♥
