When the proletariat rises up and the bosses find themselves facing revolutionary justice, I think we on SF will understand the true causes of the violent overthrow of the system.What, like I'm the only one here who would sign up for Soc/P.Sci 323 "Neo-Marxist Perspectives on Black Businesswear," if it were offered at the local community college? I don't think so.
Be that as it may, some look worse than others. With curved bottom generally looking worse than straight bottom.Nothing to look weird, since when tucked into your pants there's nothing unusual showing.But yeah, I guess it might come untucked. How likely this is depends on how short the shirt is, with shirts intended to be worn untucked typically being shorter than others. And I agree this wouldn't look good.I suppose you could buy most of your shirts with flat bottoms, and...
I suppose it strikes me as acceptable, but not optimal. Given that there are so very many non-spread collar shirts in the world from which to choose, and that you wear ties so infrequently, I guess I just don't understand why you'd opt to stock up on spread collar shirts. Could you really not learn to love something with a collar style better suited to your needs? An OCBD would be an obvious alternative, but at least a non-spread collar dress shirt.

You know, if you're not determined to buy your shoes or boots in England, you could get yourself a very nice pair of Made to Order Allen Edmonds, in horse ass (shell cordovan) leather. There's a whole thread about such shoes here - http://www.styleforum.net/t/381983/the-allen-edmonds-mto-thread/ I'm not saying that there's anything wrong with English footwear. Just that MTO AE's can potentially get you a pair of more or less personalized shoes or boots, of very good...
A good pair of shoes.I know, I know... nobody thinks of shoes in that way. But they should! Properly cared for, a quality pair of shoes will give you decades of wear. And a quality pair of shoes - not high-end bespoke shoes, no, but still very respectable shoes - is within your budget.So if you want to buy some clothing-related item to celebrate your college graduation, and you want to keep it comfortably under $1000, and you don't want another wristwatch, I'd suggest you...
Do bear in mind that true bespoke almost by its nature involves multiple fittings. So unless you plan on a couple of trips to Europe over the next year, that would be an issue.Also, 700 Euros isn't really enough to play at that table. (And since you mention London's Savile Row, 700 Euros - call it 550 pounds, give or take a little - won't even come close to covering the down payment on your bespoke suit.)Yes, a blazer would usually be much less expensive than a suit,...
Love her. Honor her. Cherish her.But don't let her dress you. Her understanding of which shoes to wear with a tuxedo is... imperfect.
Since you, in a subsequent post, mention that it's for graduate school interviews, I'd say you'll be perfectly fine.Grad school interviews are not like being interviewed by a committee of the US Senate on CNN, or even like being interviewed by a conservative law firm looking to fill an opening for an experienced litigator. Sure, getting into graduate school can be tough, and the competition intense. I get that. But that's not the key point here.Interviewers understand that...
With boutonnieres, I very much hold with the notion that simplicity wins. Simplicity bespeaks elegance, and a boutonniere is supposed to be an elegant accent. So wearing a single flower (carnation, rose, etc.) beats wearing a whole bouquet in my lapel. Oh, and real beats fake, so I'll take an actual flower over some silk thing that resembles a flower. Pictured below, the hat your date should wear, if you're going to opt for a whole freakin' flower arrangement as a...
