It does clean out the sinuses though.

Very interesting!

Here in Thailand, clothing that is cool and in general water resistant. That is generally shorts, a knit shirt, and sandals made from various types of plastic or bare feet.

The special clothing is a weather resistant camera backpack and a high quality tear-proof waterproof fabric poncho that I keep in the backpack.

No special clothing but I never actually go out to take pictures as the main item of the day. Photography is secondary to whatever else I might be doing. I do wear clothing appropriate for that activity whatever that may be.

Most of my shooting is done in my studio, and I don't have any special clothing for that; Just whatever is comfortable.

Outside though, it depends on what I'm shooting or planning or hoping to shoot, and the weather conditions. Hiking boots, rain gear, comfy knee pads and various hats come to mind. Not sure if it can be counted as clothing, but I also like to use my ThinkTank belt/hoster/pouch system while out and about.

For most work, good quality moisture wicking polo shirts (with business logo), nice jeans or slacks, athletic or boot style shoes.
Flip-flops at the beach.
Hat (with logo) for sunny outdoor days (protects the face from sun, take off or turn around when taking the shots).
Photography backpack for all gear.

More formal events... button up shirt with slacks and dress shoes... tie/jacket if needed.

Not into the specialized photography clothes.

I've tried wearing a hat while doing photography but I find that it always gets in the way and gets tossed to the side after 5 minutes, which is a shame since I live where the sun never goes behind clouds.

I have a pair of shoes I use when I'm going out at night to do astrophotography since it usually involves trecking through the sand. They have higher tops so the sand doesn't get in.

They don't make photo vests in pink. Plus, most of them don't fit me around the chest.
