Missionary Clothing

Well-dressed young men and women who learn foreign languages and travel the world—it sounds like something out of a James Bond movie, but it’s actually quite common in our Church.

And now that the dress and grooming guidelines for missionaries allow sunglasses, they fit the James Bond description more than ever before. In fact, here are 13 other people or groups that already wear the suits and shades—don’t confuse them with the missionaries!

“1500 years ago, everybody knew that the Earth was the center of the universe. 500 years ago, everybody knew that the Earth was flat. And 15 minutes ago, you knew that people were alone on this planet. Imagine what you’ll know after you take the missionary discussions.” -Missionary K

The Church recently updated their dress and grooming guidelines for missionaries, allowing missionaries to wear conservative sunglasses and wide-brimmed hats in order to help them better protect against the sun.

The Church holds its missionaries to high standards—both spiritually and when it comes to dress and appearance. As servants of the Lord, they represent Him in every way.

Missionaries are told, “as an ambassador of the Lord you are to wear professional, conservative clothing that is consistent with your sacred calling and that will clearly identify you as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints” (Dress and Grooming Guidelines for Missionaries).
