I would like to see what people wear to church and if size/location affect that.
I meant size of the Church, not of the guy, lol. I decided to scrap that anyway but I couldn't figure out how to change it
I answered as close as the options were; I generally wear khakis, boots, knit shirt or western shirt. Perhaps a better poll might ask "What have you worn to church within the last 3 weeks?" then list many different clothing types + shoes, extras like belt or suspenders, et al; each one 'checkable.'
Usually slacks, black shoes, and a pull-over shirt.
Occassionally, when I lose enough weight to fit in them, I will wear a button-down shirt and tie.
I haven't had a suit jacket in years. It just gets too hot for me. 100 degrees in July and 80 in December would be hot for anybody.
Dockers and a polo/sweater/button-up shirt/long sleeve pullover shirt. (The shirt depends on teh weather)
On Christmas and Easter, I do the suit/tie thing.
Jeans, sometimes khakis.
Haven't had a suit/dress pant on in years.
My wardrobe failed to grow with me.
I had to answer "other" on # 2. I always wear pants with my shirt & tie.
Actually, on Sun am I wear a suit. I sure I saw somewhere in the Bible (I think it was III Peter) that you must wear a suit on Sun.
Are bowties acceptable, we dont want to leave Dr Bob out (see poll on bowties! )
As long as it really ties and isn't a clip on lol
Normally, I only wear a suit when I am preaching on Sunday. If I am doing Wednesday night I am casual. I usually go straight from work to church and I dress casual at work so I don't run home and change. I am casual at the jail, rescue mission and nursing home as well. If I had my druthers I would be in western attire even when I preach on sunday but I defer to the desire of the Senior Pastor.
To me the suit is unnecssary and is the badge of a businessman and too many churches are run like businesses and I don't want that tag.
The church I currently attend is fairly casual in dress, so I follow suit (so to speak). I also dress casually at work, so I haven't worn a tie in a long time. I like it that way.
I hadn't intended to get into philosophy here, but I must say that I agree with you on the business note.
I have actually heard preachers say that we should dress as people do in business. sad
I do wear a tie a lot but I think we should dress nice for the Lord, not to fit in with the world of business. just my 2¢
That preacher has probably never worked in a business where people might get dirty such as a mechanic shop.
Our preacher lets everyone dress casual. There are certain occasions when I wear a shirt and tie.
Perhaps you should consider a "snoop option" for those of us who are curious but ineligible to vote.

Looks like Diane was able to
I guess the ladies might be interested in this
Hey, if any ladies would like to see, you can vote for your husbands if they haven't already. For that matter, I know a lot of guys that just wear whatever their wives iron for them anyway
