What do I wear to the Michigan State convention?

I am a carpenter that never dresses up. I don't really even dress up for weddings. Santorum won my district, Should I just go buy a sweater vest:)

A morph suit

Having attended a couple of

Having attended a couple of these now I've seen folks in suits to jeans. Buzz cuts to long hair done nicely in a pony tail. So as long as you're put together well, just about anything goes. Seems khakis and polo or button down are probably the most popular.


I prefer a Scottish kilt. It confuses the h*** out of them.

All joking aside, Please wear

nice slacks, pressed shirt, matching tie. Please let your wife tie it to look right! (LoL). Dress for church and mind your manners. If someone is rude and out of hand , escort them outside and behind the building. At this point you are free to whip their ass as much as you like. You just can't go back inside at this point.

Now I hope you know I am joking.

I NEVER MET A CARPENTER I could not Trust. Jesus was a Carpenter!, and you are carrying on for the truth he gave us. Dress and act as your job's namesake!

Don't overdress. Look neat and clean.

Go with a very well prepared mind. That is what will be remembered, what you say, not how you look. Ron Paul 2012

Hidden Camera? The best advice was a pistol

on your hip. Nobody will mess with you.



"RUSH" t-shirt

'cause you'll be workin', man.


Cobo Hall was the site of Rush's first headliner concert in the US.

They used to be the warm-up band for KISS.



You can't get clean in a dirty bathtub.

Polo or button down with sportcoat

Kahkis or nice jeans. Leather shoes/boots, not running or sport shoes unless they are solid brown or black and clean.

If you dress in everyday

clothes, Romney deligates will come up to you and do some small talk. Just smile take all their time so to give them a false hope. Be polite and wear no Ron Paul gear. Many of us did this in the Mass caucuses and when the votes came in for Ron, they were all in schock! Go incognito, and surprise them!

A pistol on your hip

and bring a can of pepper mace.

I would suggest

I would suggest business casual (i.e. khakis and a shirt with collar and possibly a sweater or light jacket in case they blast the a/c), and for shoes something comfortable. At our county convention I was glad I wore my sneakers! We were there 'til 1am.

Polo and khakis

just my suggestion.

state convention?

or local county/SD convention? How about new jeans and a button up shirt?


Iconically American and freedom loving. Jeans.

Blue denim was invented by

the Huguenots of France who lived in Nimes. du Nimes (of Nimes) became "denim" after a while. Many Huguenots arrived in Virginia in the late 1600's and early 1700's for religious freedom.
