(No not that one, El Guapo!)

The blue shirt and khakis "Planners Uniform" has been hi-jacked by commoners. A simple Google of blue shirt and khakis revealed a trove of hits, demostrating the pervasive manner that said commoners are

(a) embracing our style, or
(2) mocking us:

You decide...

....Looks like it all started with Dan Quayle in '99:

...and this is just the tip of the iceberg, the unvieling of a vast liberal media conspiracy to disrope the planner... errrr... downplay - and some would say change - the planners uniform. We must rise up against the infidels!

DORK!

I wear a suit and tie to work. Why would I wear a lame-o blue shirt & khakis ensemble? Are you telling me that's what my friendly Cyburbians wear to work on a regular basis?! If so, I will be sure to pray every day for my planning sisters and brothers.

I don't wear a BLUE shirt and TAN khakis.

I do wear a (tieless) dark chambray cotton shirt and dark gray cotton trousers on a regular basis. This ain't too much of a suit and tie place, thank god :)

Milwaukee was going to build a monument to planners at the airport, but our County Executive (a puppet of the radio talk show hosts around here) killed the project when the artist missed a deadline.

To give you some context, that's a scale model of an 8 story high parking structure.

Blue shirt and khakis

Not just blue, but denim. No, this workman style is timeless. A good tie and haircut can make all the difference. :)

I can wear just about whatever I want. I almost always wear jeans, and depending on my mood go from polo shirt to buttondown. If I wore a tie, people would pass out...

But hey, we had a city councilwoman come to a meeting with hair in curlers, an old sweatshirt, stretch pants, and bathroom slippers...

OMG. Of all the day's for me to read this would be today. Because today I am representing in uniform full force.

But I wonder, is this a planners uniform or a WASP look. 'Cause I always see Volvo driving, GAP and J Crew shopping, Trixie and Chad types wearing the same thing. Perhaps we should adopt a new uniform. Any suggestions?
