Favorite driving attire

What are your favorite things to wear when driving your Boxster? On the track, on long road trips, with the top down when it's chilly / when it's hot? Do you have a favorite driving jacket, gloves, sweater? Pictures and make / model of the items would be good if possible. I might be expanding my driving clothes closet.

On your feet:
On your hands:
On your head:
On your neck:
Pants:
Jacket / sweater:

Linky?!

Seriously though, my Boxster is a summer only car, so it's usually t-shirt & shorts.
Ball cap and sun block for the bald head and a jacket stashed in the frunk for when it gets chilly.

Just regular clothes,

Feet- I like the Porsche design driving shoes great for long drives, not for use in wet conditions they have vents on the bottom

I use Nike shocks usually

Just like any Porsche, less is more!

Snug fitting T-shirt, denim shorts & lite-weight thin sole tennis shoes.

Sperry's. I always like wearing hats, but then they fly off - gusty Texas wind tips it, speed lifts it. End up reaching up to catch it every mile on the freeway.

Ha!

I like to wear my worn out levi's (the others have all magically shrunk in the dryer) and this soled sketcher type slip on shoes.

I'm still working on a hat situation, the sun seems to get through the top of my sunglasses and the spot at the back of my head needs protection...

Semi-unrelated I am trying to get my lady to ride with me in a bikini top but I don't think it is happening...

Great idea! I never considered wearing slippers. I typically drive barefoot most of the year, Van's when shoes are required (because of the thin sole and pedal feel) but slippers sound like a great alternative.

p.s. - Nice to hear from another Mainer. My wife, mother, and sister have all done the L.L. Bean CSR thing for a bit too.

Shorts, tee-shirt and running shoes which are all in winter storage as I look out the window and see it's snowing here again!

Button up with a v neck undershirt. Button ups in white black and greys. With v necks that accent them well. Slacks or jeans. A simple solid polo works in the summer.

I have a porsche motor sport hat that I wear (usually when I don't drive) and a simple drivers cap that I wear sometimes when I do.

I have a black denim jacket for colder weather and a pair of lambskin leather driving gloves.

3 watches, a casual white face blue strap american eagle, a slate grey relic, and a black clemson watch, for whichever fits the outfit. As for shoes I stick with sperries or some simple Ralph Lauren polo shoes, (really comfortable) or a pair of boat shoes.

And aviators Incase it's sunny.

All works well, mostly subtle sleek and clean looking. Works for me.

If concentrating on driving and warm:

Ecco Cumo Shoes:

http://www.amazon.com/ECCO-Cuno-Lace-Loafer-Black/dp/B00CPKDJU6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1425772451&sr=8-1&keywords=ECCO+Cuno

Cutter & Buck Golf Shirt or Half Zip Sweater if Cool

Bob Timberlake Cargo Shorts

After 30 years of cruising the above is the best combo I've come across.......

My issue with Tonichristi is that NOTHING is positve in her / his / it's responses. Go to it's home page and review it's posts, a total troll.
