i finally rewatched the movie, wall street, and am i the only person who found the whole horizontal stripped business shirt look just wrong on so many levels? i don't know what the rules are, but i'm sure it must have broken some and not in a good way either. the thing that i especially disliked about the whole concept was that the collars and sleeves had veritcal stripes, while the body had horizontal stripes. it just didn't look right, as it gave us this visual effect of clashing lines. i found it too distracting where it brought the viewer's eye to the clashing shirt, and not to the face of the wearer. its like the little boy who shouts at his mom to watch him as he rides his bicylc without using his hands. the whole concept just seemed as if it was desparately trying too hard to attract attention. and, i'm not sure if something so obviously affected and trendy really belongs in a business uniform.
