The idea got rolling last fall when after wearing running shorts for hours per day I didn't feel like putting on another pair of shorts. It developed when I read Steve Jobs biography when it mentioned that he had a "uniform". The idea was reinforced by my experiences in Costa Rica, Pakistan, and Dubai where everyone wears pants regards of how hot it is. I'm not saying I have a uniform. Sometimes I do still wear shorts out of the house. However, it feels more professional to wear pants, even when it's hot outside. It's a little more serious. A little more... grown-up?
