"Barefoot, tank tops and shorts.  I wear a shirt so I don't gross out my 10 yr old daughter.  If o had a son I'd go shirtless.   An elegant yet modern way to dress would be a preppy polo shirt, nice shorts or kahkis and some…"

"So another question is if dress affects your state of mind and mood.  If it does use it.  If it does not don't worry about it."

The Dutch Dastard replied to Mike's discussion What do you wear around the house?
"Exactly. Do you dress for yourself, or do you dress for others? Especially in you own house, you can do what you like. Sometimes that's sweats with at T-shirt, sometimes that's something completely extravagant. "

"I grew up in the 50's and don't remember anyone dressing at home in a suit, etc. Maybe they did in NYC but not in Virginia. I will say it was probably a little less casual than today. But anything goes for me; I'm at home, that's…"

"If you're just hanging out around the house, what's wrong with sweats and a T shirt? Some of the Mad Men style is cool, but come on. You're hanging out at home. No need to get fancy. Plus, those guys are probably always…"

"Tell that to the people who should be fixing my heating! Funny thing is that wealthy families never had a real worry about heating. It was only about the beginning of the twentieth century (higher taxes and depleting fortunes) most people living in…"

"And then in the 1950's we got central air conditioning! That really caused the drop of in the use of indoor jackets.  When the house is not freezing you don't need the extra layer."

"Ahaah! I often wear one out of bed until I feel like showering in the weekend. In the summer only with boxers under them, in winters with an old button down shirt and soft and flimsy pants. The robe is scarlet corduroy, and was made for my (sort of)…"

Mike replied to Mike's discussion What do you wear around the house?
"Interesting. I know guys used to wear robes around the house (from the 1800s through to the 1950s), however now a days they've kinda gone out of fashion. I've even heard people describe house robes as being "gay", which is kinda…"

Sister Being Bullied and Intimidated - Brother needs advice

Afternoon gents, first post from my side and hell why not make it an extremely personal one. I need advice from all angles so here goes. My sister is going through a rough divorce currently, with the truth being she was cheated on and lied to for well over two years. The short of it is that her soon-to-be ex is an extremely intimidating, manipulating and emotionally draining character who keeps getting the best of her. She's soft, hates conflict and emotional and he knows it so he's constantly…See More
