In the summer, jeans and a t-shirt, usually with something written on it. Two days of stubble.

In the winter, jeans and a v-neck sweater, slightly heavier shoes. Same two-day stubble.

To hear my wife tell it, my outfit is always some variation on gray - even my jeans are faded out enough to appear gray. Weekdays it's pseudo business casual (dress shirt & slacks but no coat and tie) for work, on weekends it's a long-sleeved T and jeans. Shaved during the week, stubbled on weekends.

Less than 3 employees, high-tech, medical or entertainment industry. Generally more Mac than Windows, although an Ubuntu install shows up from time to time. EC2 and S3 when it makes sense. MediaTemple for everything else.

Larry 'Firewater' Adams, Artemis 'Big Man' Johnson, Bradley 'Gallop' Walter, Douglas 'Whistler' Gordon and Shelton 'Ladykiller' Blake, who didn't join us until '73 in Nebraska.

Colorado just joined the Union, so we're heading north for some fresh trouble. Reckon it might get bumpy cause it's pretty cold up there. Whistler is a grayback and he's gonna miss southern cooking. I hear they don't have a lot of whorehouses, but that the beer is mighty fine.

Pack up the Chesterfields and Winchesters, boys.

Comfy sweaters and jeans in the winter.
Sundresses in the summer...can't wait!

scrubs......too many scrubs.

Outfit? Outfit? Guys don't wear outfits! We pick up whatever's not dirty and throw it on. And if we're going somewhere special, we go an extra step and make sure it's not torn, unless it's meant to be that way.
