I wear a hat to keep the sun from damaging my skin (I look younger than I am, not because of vampirism or witchcraft, but because I wear a hat regularly since my teenage years and regularly apply sunblock as well), and so my nearsighted friends can identify me quickly. It's very easy to recognize me when I'm wearing a hat.

The sunglasses, even indoors, are because I happen to have sensitive eyes. It's manageable now, but, back when it was worse and I wore two pairs of sunglasses at once, it got to the point I'd be in a completely dark room save for a single lit candle (I had to test it!) and it would still be too bright. I'd rather deal with people asking why I'm wearing sunglasses indoors than feel like my eyes are burning from excessive light and deal with people asking why I'm grimacing, or bothered, or angered, or upset.

I use a pocket watch because it doesn't have a breakable wristband like a wristwatch. I have it on me even when I'm wearing a wristwatch because it's something I'm used to carrying around, and old habits aren't easy to break.

And the rest, well... these are the clothes I usually wear, and it would be embarrassing for everyone involved if I decided I'd look better without them.

I usually say "because I like it" or depending on situation, like "non of your business" Grin

I ignore such questions. Why do people wear clothes huh? Unless I'm ready to start an extensive conversation with someone on fashion, fashion theory, psychology, semiology, more general cultural studies and sociology, art, design, values, confusions, mind-surgeries... All of these and some more.. The maybe I would answer.. Something.. Outfit and context specific to start with..

In fact, this question is not often asked, but if it is asked only by educated people, in my practice it turns out like this.  Grin
I usually say "I like" or "Good mood in good clothes"

The main thing is not to bother with it  Wink
