In general, your missionary wardrobe will consist of business-style suits, white dress shirts, ties, slacks, shoes, socks, and belts. Depending on the climate of your mission, boots, overcoats, sweaters, and suit vests may also be included. Check the “Items Specific to Your Mission” section your call packet for direction from your mission president.
Due to costs, luggage restrictions, and limited closet space, you should plan and purchase your clothing carefully.
You are not required to wear a suit during regular everyday missionary activities. On these occasions, wear a white shirt, tie, durable and comfortable dress shoes, and professional dress slacks that hold a crease.
Certain activities require you to dress your best, or in other words, to wear “Sunday-best” attire. These activities include Sunday meetings, zone conferences, interviews, baptismal services, and some teaching appointments. On these occasions wear your best suit, shirt, tie, and shoes.
Your mission president is authorized to determine appropriate missionary attire for each activity. He will help you identify occasions requiring regular missionary attire and occasions requiring “Sunday-best” attire.
