    Is it perfectly fine to wear an odd jacket, dress shirt and odd trousers almost every time you go out?

    Of course it is. In the winter time I dress like that daily with a tweed jacket.

    I dressed as the OP suggests a lot more frequently than I do now, when I lived in NW Indiana, Michigan, Pennsylvania. Since relocating to central Florida I wear a (suit) jacket/sport coat on Sunday mornings for Church and frankly...that's about as far as it goes! :oops:

    I think its "perfectly fine" to dress that way "almost every time you go out"--if you think it's perfectly fine. To be on the safe side, though, you should consult an attorney licensed to practice in your state to make sure you're not violating any laws.

    I don’t see why that would be cause for concern or inquiry.

    The logical question would be, “as opposed to what?”

    I certainly have no desire to go anywhere without any shirt, trousers or jacket.

    Sure, if by “odd jacket” you means a sports coat or blazer or even (gasp) an orphaned suit jacket, “odd trousers” you mean a pair of pants, and “dress shirt,” you mean, well, a shirt, and if the occasion does not call for a suit.

    The obvious issue is you said “almost” every time. Under what conditions would you propose not to wear such an ensemble?

    Versus wearing a suit everyday? I think I wore a suit everyday this week with a freakin' tie. That's what I am talking about baby! Going to be getting warm soon and suits are too hot so get the wear in while the wearing is good!

    Ok - more seriously - in what context? (going out where? - to the mall or to the office?) In todays dress code you are probably overdressed for most circumstances.
