Not if they're monogrammed for the benefit of the wearer's children.
Incidentally, this practice of trying to deduce what's appropriate "Wall Street dress" by a bunch of non-Wall Street bankers is about as weird as people who fetishize academic dress from movies they've seen about English professors.
In that case, I don't understand what's WSIMCBD. CBD with a bit more expression of personal style? Because that's also within the confines of CBD.http://www.styleforum.net/t/230619/cbd-waywrn-an-experiment/180_20#post_4229735It's basically tasteful expressions of personal style within the confines of a conservative business environment. Not just blue/ grey suits + white shirt + dark tie with repeating geometric shapes.

I think of grumpy i-Gentism is a kind of weird, obsessive hate against things that are popular on the internet (even if they have long traditions, wouldn't be noticed in real life, or are even in good taste). It's focused more on what's "bad" than what's "good." Less about a joy for clothes and more about a hate for people.Maybe I'm reading this all wrong, but I got a lot grumpiness in the earlier posts.But OK, maybe it was meant in humor and I'm reading it wrong.
