"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."

Hi there Jason. Welcome to AoM. Also, thought I'd give you a friendly invite to check out my new group The Great Debate. It's the one with the colorful galaxy picture. It's also the most active group on AoM at the moment. In any case, great to have you aboard.
