    Downundergirl, yeah, I never got it either, but I find it quaint…It shows an intellectual fashion sense, that would denote good upbringing….I know, I know..Kinda silly….I’ll revert to my mom’s adoption of Cid Ceasar’s line, peoples is the craziest monkeys….Or maybe it was the other way around…I don’t know…My dad did abide by that rule, though…

    Labor Day marked the end of summer. Never mind the 21st. White clothes and straw hats were summer clothes. If you wore a straw skimmer after labor day anyone was authorized to yank it off your head, break it, then give it back to you. Responses to white suits varied. A lot of laughter was involved.

    The RULE is “Don’t wear white SHOES after Labor Day.”

    @GramEGoose

    you are correct, I guess those not raised in the south just make up their own rules. White shoes were considered spring and summer attire and not worn before Easter or after Labor Day.

    Oh yes, the Southern belle’s of the plantation era. Social graces that I find missing in today’s women. Janis is becoming quite the sloven woman. And it will come to payback with her own granddaughter some day.
