Hi all.

My Oath ceremony was on Friday . I was working , and i was careless not to read the Oath letter 's instruction

I came there 20'before the Oath. The IO thrown me out because i was wearing Jean and Black T shirt.

(Hell' I see people go to the airport and the theater, wearing pajamas and dirty clothe, I thought jeans

and a t-shirt were fancy and more than appropriate attire for the occasion.)

Thank God that there is one of Super Wall-mart nearby so i could go to remedy the situation.

Just want to share with all of you . Do not make a mistake like me so you will be miss the Oath.

This dress code does not apply to family who attend right? Because it is hell to get my husband just to wear a polo shirt much less dress pants. I myself prefer dress pants to jeans, so I will be ok. My husband went to his oath in a t-shirt and jeans 10 years ago.

He even wanted to wear jeans to our wedding, but no one else was having that lol!

My first thought was to ask why you wouldn't dress up for an Oath Ceremony, but I realized I'm not much of one to talk. I was in Rome back in 2003, and I decided to crash a Papal Mass at the Vatican without a ticket. I'm sight impaired, so I took my white cane with me. Whenever they checked for tickets, I showed them my cane. I ended up sitting five rows back in the VIP seats surrounded by bishops, cardinals, and dignitaries. I had expected I was going to be in the back of the crowd somewhere, so I was wearing khakis and a blue polo shirt. I'm really surprised they let me in the VIP section dressed like that. Funny thing though is that on the Vatican website, they have an overhead photo of the platform with Pope John Paul II and the VIP section. There is a see of black suits and a bright blue shirt in the 5th row that sticks out like a sore thumb. If I had dressed up, I would not have been noticeable from the rest of the crowd, but that bright blue shirt is hard to miss. :)
