Anyone who denies there's such a thing as 'SF Groupthink' should examine the crap trends that can grow on here like weeds. Deliberate mis-spelling like those mentioned above, also 'lurk moar', 'teh', 'mang' and 'threak'. Thankfully I haven't seen the despicable 'broseph' in some time. This business with the long back blade of the tie has been discussed at length - it might have been going on for a while but seems more prolific these days. When I see a pic like Clags'...
Exactly! If you can look good with 'non SF approved' labels like Jos A Bank or whatever, then extra points!It's often said that a well fitting well tailored 'cheaper' suit can look infinitely better than a poorly fitting 'haute' brand, and I believe this to be true.
Agreed. I like Panamas anyway but the proportions of this between crown and brim seem just about perfect.
Yeah but have you learned how to tie your tie? If so please help him!
[Begin SF Speak]Wow! Great lapels on EFV senior there! Who is the maker?[/SF Speak] :D
I just googled 'seventies men fashion ad' and after seeing the first few images I need some of that eye bleach. Off to look at the eighties to see how they compare ...

If you peruse 'typical' style images such as magazine layouts and clothing ads there are things from the seventies that have no business in any stylish man's wardrobe. Four button chest high waist bands, platform shoes, bell bottoms, huge lapels and shirt collars (and fat ties),...
Of course you're correct, but as someone who prefers slim-ish lapels it bugs me a bit the way someone dressed well with a wide lapel jacket (no matter the provenance or inspiration) is highly likely to get some comments praising lapel width, while an equally well put together pic of a slim lapel suit, if it gets any comment at all, is more likely to get a comment like 'nice jacket, pity the lapels aren't wider'.I don't really buy into the whole argument about a defined...
You're on a hiding to nothing with comments like this on the SF RTC. Saturday Night Fever lapels are almost universally jizzed over while anything than can remotely be considered 'slim' let alone ' skinny' is gonna be the subject of almost universal derision. That's one of the unfortunate maxims that have evolved on SF, mores the pity. I remember the seventies as the decade that style forgot, and we should not go there again!
