For some reason I'm unduly stressed about what I'm going to wear to my sister's wedding next month. I don't really know why - I'm not in the bridal party, ushering, or performing any part in the event beyond cheering when they get married and eating the food they so graciously provide at the reception. I could just wear some nice pants and a nice shirt and be done with it all.
But for some reason I'm just stressed out. Part of it, I guess, is that I look horrible in a standard suit and tie. Something about the tie/shirt/neck combo makes me look like a freaky southern preacher. So the obvious choice is a mandarin collar; unfortunately, I can't seem to find a mandarin collared suit jacket - at least not one for sale, there are plenty for rent as tuxes. The chances are good that I'll just get a blazer and wear a regular shirt with an open collar, no tie. I don't have to deal with this crap in my everyday life - I'm a jeans and t-shirt kinda guy.
Still, though, there's this stressy feeling. I wonder if it has more to do with the fact my little baby sister (sorry kiddo, you're always going to be a kid to me), is getting married and less to do with the mechanics of what to wear. It's likely that it is.
