It may seem a bit morbid, but there are plenty of people who contemplate their “final outfit,” i.e., what they want to be wearing when they are dead and buried (or cremated). Apparently, trends are changing, and going out in one’s “Sunday best” is no longer the only choice. Many people, of course, don’t make that choice and it’s left to surviving loved ones, or even funeral directors, to make a wardrobe selection. Caleb Wilde, a funeral director whose website gives a realistic, and often humorous, look into the life of a funeral director, has just published a book called Confessions of a Funeral Director, part memoir and part exploration of customs and quirks in the “death industry” in our country. If that sounds of interest, then you also need to be aware of another new book: Caitlin Doughty’s From Here To Eternity: Traveling The World To Find The Good Death, an exploration of the various funeral rituals of different cultures around the world. And, if you’ve now decided to peruse your closet to make that “final selection,” you may find some inspiration on the website of Ethel Maid, our country’s largest supplier of burial clothing, whose tagline is “The Finest in Funeral Fashions.” Happy Shopping!
