1. You’re consistently under-dressed.
A couple years in Alaska and proper social conventions fly out the window. You’ll toss your formal wear piece by piece until your closet is an assemblage of t-shirts, hoodies, jeans, and Carhartts. Special occasions may call for your spiffiest pair of Danskos or an Alaska tuxedo, but ultimately casual wear grows on you. The longer you spend here, the less likely you are to ever meet Lower 48 fashion standards again.
