A MODEST PROPOSAL
My former parish used to have a retreat on the weekend after Easter where people went to relax but left their Sunday go-to-meetin' clothes at home. On Sunday, we'd worship in this lovely little chapel in the middle of the woods. If you're a member of the clergy and your church does something like that, here's a suggestion: play it safe and worship without any vestments at all. Otherwise, you run the risk of looking like this guy.
