As part of this whole Visiting Professor gig,* I got Dr. S a new business-casual wardrobe.** He'd been working in a lab for the previous 12 years straight, where one does not wear dress shirts and khakis, like, ever, and in the intervening 12 years, even occasional wearing of nice clothes will wear them out. So he has all these nice, color-coordinated, stylish outfits.
I have a bunch of stuff from the Dig And Save.
I remember being a college student and wondering why these good-looking, nicely dressed professors*** had spouses who looked like total schlubs. Well, now I'm the one with the tatty shirts, no make-up, and an unfortunate haircut. So I'm pretty sure they, like me, didn't have the time, money, or energy to dress up for no reason.
* Seriously. Was I drinking when I agreed to this?
** Mandatory attire for lecture: shirt, tie, dress pants. Blazer optional.
*** Of any gender.
