    My guitars are naked. They're too pretty to be covered by clothes.

    They're too down to earth for snobby te parties.

    I buy new clothes when my old clothes have visible holes in them. I guess if my guitar had holes in it (f-holes don't count), I'd have to buy a new guitar.

    Somehow, I don't think I really answered the question. Sorry.

    I do not buy clothes to complement guitars, no. As far as anything I might wear as "stage wear," I just look for cool stuff (note: I pretty much am able to wear "stage wear" offstage as well, and in fact I do, daily).

    That said, once guitars are chosen for a specific show, I do also choose whatever I am going to wear so at least as to not clash with whatever number 1 guitar that I am playing as my main guitar for our set.

    This guy got a jacket to match his accordion that he is actually wearing.
    Both practical and stylish! IMG_20210614_031657.jpg

    I do not match my clothes to my guitars. That's just silly.

    I think that clothes can be very important in relation to your music. I play a hybrid mix of country and blues. I always wear a cowboy or Stevie Ray style hat, nice cowboy boots and a snap shirt. It helps to get the attention of your audience. Hey, Gatemouth Brown did it that way...

    My gig attire is usually square. Does that make me hip? Throwback pic from the St. Pat's big band gig in 2019.
