May 2012's edition of GQ featured an article about a professional stylist, Llaria Urbinati, in which she (the stylist) insists that men should not wear belts with suits because it looks "bulky." I didn't immediately take off my belt in the middle of the grocery store and renounce the leather apparatus for good, but I am starting to become less suspicious of her claim. I do feel like it adds bulk. Somebody on SF tell me whether I should be averse to bulk.
That's certainly not an exhaustive list of where I keep my ties... or my socks. In fact, ties and socks seem to abound everywhere in my house. Although, one particular place where I keep ties is, I think, particularly exciting: I hang my bow ties on an Artemide Tolomeo lamp that stands on my dresser such that the second limb is parallel to the ground. It looks really sharp, actually.
But he does stand out in terms of dress by forgoing the tie/jacket and it is being used against him I did not word my post carefully enough, however. What I meant to say was that I don't agree with the president of the United States being bullied for not buying his clothes where the average joe can't afford to. You're certainly right about why it is such.
