Hello brothers! I am being raised tonight and wanted to know if I should wear a suit or just polo/khakis type clothes? Based on the previous 2 degrees, I have a feeling I know what will become of my clothing; at least in the first portion. But as a sign of respect, I wondered if I should suit and tie it maybe? It's generally pretty casual but some members do wear coat and tie whereas other may wear a biker jacket maybe. Any thoughts and guidance would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Clint

Whatever you wore for your first two degrees I think would be just fine.
Congratulations on the upcoming raising. There is no degree like the third degree (yes, that is where the saying comes from) keep your ears and your mind open!

Lol, not too bad at all. Excellent presentation. Can't wait to sit thru it as a spectator. Very good feeling to have gained about 5 million new brothers. Ironically, met the first and only person I work with that is in the craft despite working there 5 years now. I was laminating my new card and he noticed and asked 'if I were a traveling man'. Great time and experience.

Congratulations! Now go celebrate with a drink and a cigar! (just kidding)

When I told my boss at the time that I was being raised, the only thing he would tell me was, "This is going to knock you out!"
