VA, I feel ya on the long sleeves thing. But being that I have monkey arms, my wife is used to me rolling them up. (not wayyyy up)

Oh, same here. I'm not a slob. But I would say that an event formal enough for me to wear anything other than jeans (or shorts) happens perhaps only 6-10 times a year, and most of those are work-related.

For instance, we've known of couples who consider anything short of meeting at some snooty wine bar in evening wear to be way too informal. We know well in advance that we are not the right kind of people for them.

SO bring two shirts, one to sweat in for the first 15 minutes, and one to change into ;)

I don't want to make it sound like hubby and I wear formal wear 24/7, but sweats is just something that is either at the house or at the gym.

As to jeans, certainly jeans are great to go out to not such formal events. Hubby is wearing a pair in this photo ;).

I despise wearing long sleeve shirts. I accept that under some circumstances I must, but I feel uncomfortable wearing them, especially initially.

It has nothing to do with the fit or (usually) the material. I don't know how to explain it. A long sleeve dress shirt causes me to instantly sweat like nobody's business, even if it's cold in the room. After a short while, it's not so bad and I'm fine, but the 1st 15 minutes I have it on can be really bad.

I almost always wear jeans. If wearing long pants, it will only be something other than jeans if it's absolutely necessary. It's just the way I am. I just realized I'm not wearing jeans in even one picture on here (well, one but they are black denim) but it's true.

It's not a physically uncomfortable state for people like that. They feel uncomfortable in an outfit that seems foreign to who they are. Like the farmer who wears demin coveralls everyday hating when he has to wear his Sunday best to go to church.

See, I just don't get it. Hubby and I just love getting dressed up nicely. It just feels great! I just don't get people who do not. I just don't.

I sometimes hear statements like, I don't feel comfortable in a collared shirt, a jacket, or dress, I prefer sweats and tee.

If the clothes are fitted properly why would you not feel comfortable in them.

Went to a "new" event once and found a couple guys in sweatpants and quite a few men in white tanktops. We didn't stay long. Felt as if I should have brought my banjo.

Mrs. Sav: Well said. The final preparation just before the play date can certainly increase the anticipation.

Pirate:

"I'd rather be the best dressed person in the room and stand out for that then stand out because I looked like something the cat drug in."

Amen.
