I Only Wear Work Clothes. Roundhouse Work Pants, Button-Up Dickies Shirts.

I am 5’11" 145lbs dark hair, White male with colored eyes. I have thick, healthy hair, probably about 16" long.

how should I dress?

I am a trade worker, so function over form during the day. on evenings and weekends, my wife and I homestead. full monty: gardens, lots of livestock, building projects, homestead improvement & expansion. rustic lives.

we rarely leave the homestead. I rarely put on "good clothes" and we only dress to 9’s once a year.

my wife is a smokeshow. i would like to be a compliment to her aesthetic when we are out in public. I feel like I should have a "style" outside of work clothes.

      I hope so?

      I doubt I would be seen as "/fashion/" (had to look that up).

      I wear the brown duck double knee pants, and a Dickie’s (or similar) button up work shirt. I also wear Roundhouse’s brown duck, double knee, overalls. I wear steel toe work boots.

      once every 3 or 4 months we go play poker at a friend’s house. I still usually just wear my "good Roundhouses" that have never been worked in, and a graphic t-shirt.

      outside of that, it goes straight to suits, jackets, dress pants, cravats, and loafers. I have no in-between.

      how does a "new" middle-class "old guy" dress these days? what is a proper style?

        Get a pair of blue jeans and a button down shirt. Flannel maybe or just solid color. Tucked or untucked. Get a pair of non steel toed boots. They’re more comfortable tk wear anyway

      I’m with you on the other two, but sneakers and jeans are so universal by this point that this is pretty silly advice. Don’t wear them to the opera, church or a nice restaurant, but purging them from your wardrobe entirely isn’t realistic.

    Put your hair up when you go out. You don’t have to cut it, but groom and style it better. Avoid the man bun; wear it like the guys in samurai movies do theirs.

      my hair is pulled back in a single-band ponytail, 100% of the time. necessary for my trade work & farm lifestyle.

      OP pic was for our anniversary photo.
