My friend in Wyoming wears a cowboy hat and cowboy boots with hers.

In California, for men it's topless with sandals and for women (sorry) it's mini-tank top or leather bustiers for women. (Thigh high black boots go with the bustiers... sandals or barefeet go with the tank tops.) Sunglasses!

If you were to personalize your outfit for your neighborhood, what would you be wearing?

(P.S.: The California MacFarlane girls are famous for their 12" mini-kilts, black leather bustiers, and thigh-high black boots. And the guys for their long flowing hair. They seem to have a lot of fun.)

So back to the point: Localize your kit... with....?

I don't think "localising" is required, well OK, maybe just a matching tie....

That's our new band uniform! You weren't supposed to see it yet! The police chief is going to be ticked -- we're just going to step out in them and surprise everyone. Dang. He's not going to be happy now that the surprise is blown.:jeeze:

It's not about personalize it. I'd be running around in a leopard silk kilt, hiking boots, and my hair on fire if that were the case.

I'm asking about your town or region. The town I"m from is 'Los Gatos' which means "The Cats" in Spanish. So I guess I'd have to have a dead cat for a sporran. And since I live in the mountains, my shirt -- which I just realized I forgot above -- would definitely be tartan flannel. And since it's pouring buckets today, I might replace my hiking boots with my wellies and turn in my drum so I can start playing the chainsaw. (Rain like this makes the trees fall down across the road, then we have to cut them up for firewood.)

Now, for a bonnet... I guess I'd have to opt for my Rose Bowl "Footbalol Legends" since my spousal unit played in the Rose Bowl twice whilst in uni and I have a ball cap that has his name embroidered on the back. (We still live near his school.)
