"White, maybe brightened linen, linen polo shirts of a light colour - maybe blues, but if the jacket is white, you could get along with anything, same with dress shirts. No ties - ties don't really go with linen - light-in-build, dark-in-colour…"

"I work in high tech and it is the same here - at least at the first 2-3 levels in the organization - but when we have to go to customers more often the dress goes up too. I said screw it and wear a sport jacket everyday. A suit is too much I agree…"

"Karen has me right: I absolutely was not telling him to leave his wife! No! She needs him, he's committed to her, and he loves her! I was honoring him for keeping going while feeling "like a single parent of two daughters and a wife.""

Will replied to Jason Sperling's discussion Wife has Clinical Depression
"I feel for you too. My wife has been blue but not all the way to depressed. *I* have been depressed (before marriage). I know how I got out of it; and how I survived it. Meanwhile, maybe single parent of everyone is the way to go, as an act of love."
