Dressing for different climates and cultures

uk trini
I’m still in Colchester (Day 6), with David’s family. It appears that in the UK, the clothing that people wear at home is decent enough that they’d be able to go down the road in it. So, to go out, they’d probably just throw a coat, etc over what they’re already wearing. David’s family wears shirts, dress pants, jeans and such at home… and I’ve followed suit whilst staying here, and worn ‘going out clothes’ at home. That’s not what it’s like at my home in Trini though… we have ‘home clothes’ and ‘going out clothes’. So, when we need to go out, we’d change the outfit entirely; unless perhaps we’re just going around the corner to a parlour (a little shop: often in a little shed or building in front someone’s house).
