^Even irony doesn't save a shirt like that.

My grandmother. Every year with the corduroy pants and gaudy shirts ("Gram, I can't wear this!" "Oh don't be silly! No one looks at what's on your shirt!")  :P 8) :'(

I have a weird sensitivity to it. If it brushes my fingertips I get really unpleasant chills. And it's a nightmare if it gets wet.

Corduroy is awesome. It's perfect material for autumn and winter. It looks good, keeps you warm, protects you from all kinds of foul weather and doesn't make you look over-dressed even if you dressed nicely.

I can't wear a bowler hat anymore. Or pretty much any nice black hat for that matter. A combination of a beard and a black hat makes you instantly look like an Orthodox Jew.

I do have a long black overcoat. I like bowlers and the combination of a bowler hat and a long black overcoat looks fine. Adding beard into the mix makes it look like a costume.

Depends on your definition of what a frock coat is.  The bekishe or rekel are not frocks.

If you cannot remember everything, instead of everything, I beg you, remember this without fail, that not to share our own wealth with the poor is theft from the poor and deprivation of their means of life; we do not possess our own wealth but theirs.  If we have this attitude, we will certainly offer our money; and by nourishing Christ in poverty here and laying up great profit hereafter, we will be able to attain the good things which are to come. - St. John Chrysostom

It seems he was a lawyer to the St. Alexander Nevsky Lavra, very nice to learn about another glorified man of law.
"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

Anyhow when God was asked he said Eastern Orthodox is true Church and not Catholic Church. So come home and enjoy.
