Wouldn't this fall under the obedience factor again? Kind of like men with long hair, it's not explicitly forbidden, but it's not best.Jordan

People tend to think I'm this huge nerdy guy too...but then they see me in a suit and think I look like a hit man. Never judge by cyber appearance (right, Steve?)Brother Paul :-P

I didnt hear it from a sermon or from another believer, but from the Spirit of God. So I got rid of all the mini-skirts and low cut blouses and bought new clothes that I felt like would be pleasing to the Lord. This mostly consisted of long skirts and loose fitting tops. During this time of my life as a new believer seeking to draw close to the Lord, the thing people noticed about me was not my appearance or my figure it was the beauty and radiance of Christ that they saw. Over the course of time, I began to incorporate more professional looking clothing into my wardrobe, but during a recent time of seeking God I felt like He was dealing with me again about my clothing. Reading the posts in this topic about what a stumbling block this is for men just broke my heart because I have been guilty of this. My desire for attention, which should have driven me to the feet of Jesus, instead found satisfaction by dressing in a way to draw attention to my figure.Last night I cleaned out my closet and bought new clothes. Today I feel that I am dressed the way a woman of God should dress modestly. I truly desire that my appearance would bring honor and glory to Him again and that Christ would be my beauty.
I've found myself that the Indian (traditional Hindu/Moghul) culture is extremely modest and comfortable. I find one of the females' dress( the punjabi clothing) a good compromise between pants and dress or skirts. Like what GrannieAnnie said she wears, it is a very long tunic and loose pants. Most are bright; however, there are less bright ones for those who do not want to call attention to themselves. If I had the money, I think almost all of my clothing would consist of this garb.
