No longer Resist Being Dressed Up " 2 "

Well it has been almost 2 years since I made my first poll. In the last 2 years some things are still the same and others have changed. The Same: I am still required to be smartly dressed at all times, depending on the circumstances, dictates style of dress. For School: 2 piece or 3 piece suit, or dress shirt, tie, dress slacks,dress socks,belt,dress shoes(always highly polished)wool jumper,sweatervest,wool waistcoat (vest) sportcoat or blazer. For after school,around house evenings or weekends,going out with friends, etc. Same as for school is required. Whats different: 1- Dressing this way seems totally normal to me now. ( I no longer look at other boys dressed the way I use to (t-shirts,jeans etc.) and get upset because I don't have clothes like that any longer) infact all my close friends dress the same way as myself,so to us we are dressed normally.We formed a club where you must wear a suit or jacket and tie to come to meetings,or go on outings,and have members that might wear other clothes elsewhere, but meet required dress when with the club. 2- Parents have relaxed some rules with my form of dress. * I use to have to wear a jacket all the time except in my room. I am now allowed to go without my jacket around the house, as long as the following is met: I am wearing a jumper,sweatervest,waistcoat(vest),also when my parents or I don't have company over, or at meal times. Other wise except in my room jacket must be worn. 3- At meal times, a little less formal. Unless I am at a gathering with family or friends where Formal dress is required (I wear Tuxedo or Dinner Jacket) I am allowed to wear a suit, or sport/blazer. what ever I want, except a Jacket is required. 4- I now get to go shopping with mom for my clothes at gentlemans shops, and I get to pick my shirts,ties,suits,sportcoats,etc. But, mom gets final say, but then again, with my choices, it has been a long time since she has said no to any of my choices. 5- As far as what I wear day to day, I can lay out an outfit, on my bed, and mom will look it over, and give her approval. Although sometimes in the evening, when I go to my room to get ready for bed, I will find an outfit layed out for the next day, she says it is because she misses doing it for me. 6- I get to choose what cukklinks,collarbar,tie pin,collar pin etc. I wish to wear with outfit.

My parents and myself, and 2 of my friends and their parents took a trip to Disney World in Orlando Florida, for a week, each day, while attending the parks, we boys were required to wear: dress slacks, shirt, tie,waistcoat(vest) and dress shoes. We did not have to wear a jacket during the day in the parks, but had to in the evening and at meals out of the park. So if you were told you were being taken to Disney World, or a park like that and had to dress the way we did, or not go would you still want to go?
No Way! there is no way I would wear those kind of clothes to an amusement park, and have people staring at me!
You Bet! this is how I dress all the time, and don't have any other clothes nor do I want other clothes to wear, besides I don't mind the attention or at least don't care about people looking at me
I guess! I may not be thrilled with the clothes I would be wearing, but I really want to go, and will make the best of it
If your parents required you to dress as we did on vacation, because they see it as normal way of dressing, what would be your thoughts on it?
No big deal. this is how we dress all the time no matter where we go so we really don't mind
Don't like it. though they require a strict form of dress, they could at least relax it a little, and let you wear more casual clothes on vacation
