The emperor's new clothes

If you could wear whatever you wanted without fear of social ostracism or ridicule, what would your favorite outfit be?
My answer: Knee-high leather boots, blousy pirate shirt, big floppy hat with a feather, elbow-length gloves, and a cape. In fact, pretty much like the Three Musketeers.

I didn't see any mention of pants. Are we pantless here? Truly a matter of the emperor's clothes? That could be interesting...and I might have to vote for never getting out of sweats or something equally comfortable. Not quite as flashy as the pirate thing I know (especially bottomless). You and Johnny Depp.

jay are: i think that the musketeer outfit should have tights, not pants.

if it didn't offend my own sensibilities, i might choose a long sable fur coat -- as long as the sable(s) died naturally of old age, of course! (hopefully the fur wouldn't be too ratty-looking.) tiara, long gloves, & diamond bracelets need to be added to the ensemble, while i'm at it. (this is assuming that i wouldn't die of heat prostration...)

I knew "pants" wasn't right, but bottoms of some sort. Tights, of course. How lovely.

And the pirate theme is great. Along those lines, if I ever ditched the sweats, I'd go for the barefoot gypsy---peasant blouses, loose-flowing-type clothes.

And on the weekends I'd dress as Zorro.
