    I agree completely. I like to dress in what I'll loosely call British Invasion style...skinny ties, etc. Most of the bands in my area dress like they fell off the back of a turnip wagon.

    I went to a regional blues jam in 2019, most of the guys, and girl, wore a respectable collection of working class casual. But some went on stage with baseball caps on backwards, tank tops, cargo shorts, flip flops. Definitely not a good look.

    To match “which” guitar? I don’t have enough room in my closet for that many clothes! :)

    My guitar perfectly matches my COVID pygamas.

    That would definitely go well with all black. Nice guitar. I have a Gretsch double cut-away in red with no Bigsby. I have never seen or found online the same guitar.

    A Hawaiian style shirt goes with any guitar (or ukulele)!

    I agree . . . baseball caps on backwards (or at all), tank tops, cargo shorts, flip flops are not suitable on-stage. But most people have no taste, so they just muddle through life in their own world of mediocrity.

    Do you buy...dentures...to complement....

    Hell I can't say it with a straight face.

    Please, your teeth are part of the dress code.

    ^I have those Red Wings in black and they go great with a black Jet. :)

    As for me:

    Clothes = Johnny Cash
    Beard = ZZ Top
    Guitar (Jet) = George Harrison
