Greg Proops on the way his style evolved (see entire Laugh Spin interview here):

Last question, I’ve always just wondered, what is it with you and Paul F. Tompkins wearing those snazzy suits?
I just always dressed up on stage. I’ve told this story before, but I don’t know why Paul does it. I assume he does it because he enjoys it, but I used to, in San Francisco in the old days, wear a leather jacket and a skull t-shirt and jewelry and stuff like that.

Then I got to my 30s and I went to England. All of sudden I realized the wardrobe available to me and I saw a guy at an airport who was dressed just like me at the time and he was about 10 years older than me. He was wearing skull shorts, tennis shoes, and a leather jacket, and a necklace, and this guy looked like Def Leppard’s roadie and I was like, “I can’t do that.” You know what I mean? When I get to be that old, I can’t do it and when I’m older I definitely can’t do that.

So, I started then wearing a suit about 20 years ago and I’ve stuck with it. Mostly because you can get older. You can be a grown up in it. At a certain point, for me, I never feel comfortable with just a t-shirt on stage.

I like the suit. It was ‘thrown under the bus’ some years ago as far as comedy wardrobe trends and I don’t think it should have been completely gotten rid of. Certainly, people should dress the way want, but I do appreciate people like you, Paul [F. Tompkins], and newer comics like, Ryan Stout, all wearing suits.
