I just went shopping for colored shirts. I bought four pairs -- two shades of olive, one lavender, and one light blue. I also purchased matching ties and some moisture-resistant socks. This was a big deal for me because until last night, I was under the impression that Chassidic men do not wear colored clothing because to do so would send out the message that they were somehow less religious. After last night's revelation and fiasco, I decided to break out of my black-and-white pattern of dress.
