Wearing white after Labor Day: Fashion faux pas or advice to be ignored?

Where DOES the rule that we can’t wear white after Labor Day come from anyways?

Well, according to Wikipedia:

“An old fashioned tradition in Canada and the United States bans the wearing of white after Labour Day. Explanations for this tradition vary; the most common is that white is a summer colour and Labour Day unofficially marks the end of summer. The rule may have been intended as a status symbol for new members of the upper and middle classes in the late 19th and early 20th century.”

Seems pretty outdated to us, especially with the white denim trend going on now.  Who wants to give up wearing these just because some Victorian notion of propriety recommends it?  Pshhh.
