comfort all the way...as long as it sorta goes with the music. would be a bit wierd(but also amusing) seeing a 6"4' tall pastey goth with LONG black hair and foot long spikes comming out from everywhere playing a jazz/soul gig :D

Summer- shorts and t-shirt
Winter- jeans and t-shirt
Casino gigs we must wear black pants and a collar shirt.

I try to do some type of cool looking shirt. My wife's favs are the Affliction shirts from The Buckle here in the states.

I LOVE Affliction clothing!!! I have jeans, t-shirts, hats, and zip hoodies of theirs. They're amazing. I usually wear a shirt like that (or a band t-shirt I like) and then shorts. Even in Winter, I get way to warm to play in jeans. As far as shoes, I wear my Adidas Sambas that I wear also to play indoor soccer.

practicing, usually just whatever I have on.

I personally think practicing when having shorts on is better(at least for me)

anything that's comfortable to play in and stylish enough for the TV camera constantly around.

I try to always wear clothes, personally.

However theres been rock gigs where this rule has been broken slightly. I also did a Halloween gig in a giant dog suit.

That sucked.
