Fearing White Clothing After Labor Day

    The no white after Labor Day originally only referred to shoes (as a rule of thumb to avoid their getting more dirty in more wet weather) not other items of clothing, and originally only applied in (North-)Eastern USA. The extrapolation to other parts of the USA, and to other items of clothing apart from shoes, is relatively modern phenomenon, driven largely by unknowing arrivistes…. 😉
