Fashion Rules you don't agree with

Postby HornMafia on Thu Jul 05, 2007 1:14 pm

I don't agree that you should never button the bottom button on a two piece suit or the top (I think?) and bottom on a three button suit.

I think it looks kinda tacky unbuttoned, especially when you can see white shirt and tie.

Feel free to add your own.

That you can't wear jeans and a tshirt everywhere.

I'm very pro-button and have no problem buttoning both on a 2-button jacket.

The Hankerchief debate - Although viewed as classy and stylish for weddings and funerals, a hankerchief is not mandatory for a suit worn at either event.

Since when do I have to have special cuff links (ie-alma mater cuff links) as part of my tuxedo? The answer is that I don't.

There's aboslutely nothing wrong with wearing a madras jacket after Labor Day. Seersucker is a no-no but madras is fine as long as the colors sync with traditional fall colors. If you went pastel madras in late September, that would be silly.
If it's more of a navy blue/crimson/green madras, that can be worn to early fall Division I-AA football game no questions asked.
(Disclaimer - I swear I'm not gay)

Don't agree that coat and tie HAS to be accompanied with pants. Coat & tie plus shorts plus birks/flip-flops makes for a very slick and preppy outfit. Bow-tie earns extra preppy points.

That getup was worn alot by the frat boys at Furman for football games. No joke.

Also we were allowed to wear that at boarding school on the rare day when it was actually warm in New England in September or May. Trust me, you took advantage of it when you could. Beats trudging through the snow in LL Bean boots and a coat and tie.

Striped shirt with a striped tie. I could never understand why that was such a no-no. Like any combination of clothes, it just depends.

No, I'm pretty sure that rule has very few acceptable exceptions.

I think that rule has been relaxed in recent years. I've seen some articles in GQ and Esquire about how it's now acceptable to wear stripes on stripes, as long as the colors don't clash.
