I have had a fascination with tuxedo T-shirts since I got married. Okay, I will admit, it is more of an obsession, but let me explain.
When Chris and I got married, we decided that some marriage traditions were just stupid and we were going to do it our way. Somehow we came up with a lesser toured island called Water Island on the Virgin Islands as the place to do it. My brother-in-law, Tom, officiated the ceremony. We paid him in drinks. He did a pretty good job, and he got his reward in full.
I told Chris that I always thought it would be neat to get married in a tuxedo T-shirt. Without a blink or bat of the eye, she agreed. I was pretty sure that I picked the right one, but her reaction showed me that I would have no regrets. That was to be my attire.
Up to this point I had never gotten around to owning a tuxedo T-shirt, but had always admired those who had them. I guess the reason they appeal to me is because of what they represent. You can be classy all the time and ready to party all the time as well.
Since then my tuxedo T-shirt collection has grown quite extensively. I have the blue one that I am wearing today. But I also have a purple one for that kind of a night. I of course have the one I was married in. I have added several black ones with various styles and configurations including an 8-bit one and a more relaxed one that has the tie undone.
I do not know why I became so obsessed with these tuxedo T-shirts. Sure the message is clear, and I like that. I want to be classy relaxed all the time. I feel good when I wear one though.
You know, I bet I figured out why they make me feel so good. It must be because I was wearing one on the best day of my life.
