What's the best type of clothing/costume to wear for an escape act? I recognise that there are different types of escapes...suspended, underwater etc, but what do you tend to go for?

For non-stage stuff, I wear what's comfortable. At the moment, I've got a pair of stonewashed, black jeans, some Salomon hiking shoes, and a loose T-Shirt.

If I'm doing an event for a charity, I'll try to get hold of one of their shirts.

On the stage, I go for smart casual. Just make sure that if you're doing a straitjacket escape that the shoulders on your shirt are loose fitting enough! I've managed to rip a couple of shirts open! :)

Breaking the mould of the magician, I also wear what is comfortable, where ever I may be. Khaki pants and a sleeveless, collarless 3 button shirt, and deck shoes.
