The tie tuck in the pants has been happening for many years. It was seen in preppy/ivy students, tucking the tie in so that it's not getting caught on desks, food falling on it as you ate etc. it was also seen on the likes of Fred Astaire and other small men whose high rise trousers would have the blade of the tie fall to their crotch if left outside (and also helpful in dancing, tie is not flying around). So people can hate how it looks, that is their perogative but it...
Why do you have to layer? The first pic, you have a loud patterned shirt, tie and pants (by loud I just mean very noticeable). Why the cord vest? Less is more when you dress the way you do. You like patterns/colors and you have an eye for it, but every piece you wear doesn't have to be in your face, When the top is loud (shirt/tie), keep the bottom quiet and vice versa.

Nothing wrong with that. The white shirt thing, that is actually very...

Whether you want...
