Default White Pants

I live in the midwest and white pants/shorts/capris/sandals, etc. are not worn after Labor Day. My question...do people wear them after Labor Day on a cruise, when where they are going is warm? Is this just a midwest "rule" or does it apply all over the country? Just curious.

Not sure where you live in the midwest but white capris, shorts and pants do get worn after labor day. I would say that they would be more than appropriate for a cruise.

No white after labor day is mainly because its winter and no one wants to look like a snow man. It is a "Rule" all over, but not really followed everywhere. If you are goig somewhere warm, I would wear whatever you are comfortable in. I wore white to hawaii after labor day. If you are asking cause you are wondering if you will look silly wearing white on your cruise, the answer is NO...not at all.

By the way...You aksed if it was a rule all over the country or just the midwest. On your cruise, you will be OUT of the courty. So, where whatever the heak ya want to and have fun.

White is fine after labor day until you spill spaghetti or pizza sauce on them, then you should change Smallish coffee stains are OK

I've always taken white on a Caribbean Cruise. No matter what time of year.......

That idea of no white before Memorial Day or after Labor Day is sorta like my Grandmothers ideas. Subject to change. Like ladies having to wear high heels, a hat and white gloves to Church. When the weather turns warm - or stays warm, I wear summer clothes. The the more comfortable the better.

You are on vacation.........

My wife has told me I'm not allowed to wear ANYTHING white if there is pasta being served. Jeez, I don't spill on myself EVERYtime.

At home we'd NEVER (and I mean NEVER) wear WHITE pants nor WHITE shoes after Labor Day! It's just not done -- tacky!

For cruises in the Caribbean WHITE is right -- any time of year!
