Just got an email from the partner saying that my new client thinks business casual is "weird" and I need to wear jeans and t-shirts to work. This feels like a trick. How the hell do I dress.

That is so, so awesome.

Having only one wardrobe (not a separate one for work) is the ideal if you can swing it. I find other ways to keep the separation between work and personal lives.

@McK 1 I agree there are other ways, but I've found if I wear a pair of pants to work I'll just never wear it again casually. I like having a separate drawer of work clothes in which everything just goes without me having to try. Why is one wardrobe ideal?

Tuxedo and top hat.

@strat1 honestly half is just from a cost standpoint and if I can find things that I'm cool wearing out as well as to work it gives me more closet space too.

Circumcision - this is a topic where I’m really stumped. I know it’s a highly personal choice, so I can tell you a bit about me and my husband:

- not religious
- liberal Democrats in a coastal state
- my family is conservative and all-American
- husband’s family is from the Midwest so pretty similar but the only cousin my son will have is uncircumcised (his mom is a lesbian and they live in the woods in Vermont).

I want to be progressive on this topic… (cont)
