Friday dilemma: Can I wear jeans to a funeral?
Today’s dilemma is unusually sombre, but here goes. What’s the right thing to wear to a funeral these days?
We ask this question following a recent discussion in The Punch office about the wearing of jeans. People wear jeans everywhere these days. Job interviews, weddings, work. So does that mean, it’s now okay to wear them to a funeral?
And what about the all-black thing. Is that getting a bit out-dated now? Does it remain the only way to show respect for the person who passed away?
Maybe it should be okay to dress as the person knew you. As long as you’re neat and tidy, and actually wearing “something” of course. What say you Punchies? Will 2012 bring with it entirely new sartorial guidelines for reverential dressing? Or are funerals one of the last remaining places for traditional notions of respect? Post your thoughts below.
