Listen now (39 min) | Is clothing just a result of the fall? If so, why is God depicted clothed in majesty, and why are angels and perfected men always in white robes? What does clothing mean, what spiritual patterns does it express…and how does this change the way we think about it?
Banger episode. I thought there can't be that much said about clothing to fill a whole podcast season but here I am wishing the episode would have been twice as long.
When I came out of my teens into adulthood I had a sense that I should dress nicer. I tried and it did have an effect on how I was treated by other people. But that habit slowly faded when I embrace work from home. Now I only dress up of I'm at the company hq or have a physical meeting with a customer.
I still think is should completely overhaul my wardrobe. I always look with admiration at pictures from 100 years ago. Everyone wearing some sort of suit or at least a vest. But what's holding me back is sweat and comfort. I get hot so easily and I would sweat through nice suits easily if it's not cold outside. I also find nice clothing to be pretty uncomfortable. Maybe because they force you into proper posture but pyjamas are just so comfortable.
Looking forward to the next episode!
If I could make a blind gut feeling based guess about how post mil clothing will look like I think it would be more uniforms. Like in star trek.
