(This doesn't apply to funerals. When you go to a funeral, it's OK to dress like somebody died.)
I don't see how no one noticed this gem of a post from the jeans = formal n00b

FYI, this is that douche who follows people around from thread to thread to whine at them after they make a fool of him (see also his pathetic pursuit of user "distinctive"). Keep lying about what other people say, pee-wee. We're all very impressed.

Wear a linen suit and a summer scarf. No-one will take you for a banker.

Sorry if I had confused you with another new user. Who is 'distinctive'? And your tie bashing is simply idiotic.

Nah, suggesting someone try going out with a suit and no tie is merely an opinion. But I'm sure the well-dressed gents from Milan to Harlem who have rocked this look successfully for decades will take note that some anonymous dork on the Internet has shown them the light and will amend their ways.

Idiotic would be, for instance, insulting a user because you were too dumb and lazy to check who you were talking to. Or being unable to view your own post history.

I apologised already. I think that poster had a fairly similar profile photo. I'm not saying that tieless suit always equals idiotic - just that the idea that no ties should be worn except at funerals is.

I don't know, man. I like that look, but the request was for "wedding, funeral, party, night-on-the-town, date or nice dinner". Granted, there isn't anything that will work in all of those occasions, but I think the linen suit excludes weddings (except those taking place on a beach), funerals, indoor parties, nights on the town (except in places like Miami) and nice dinners. Don't you think?

Decent compromise in a lot of those situations might be a cotton suit.

Plus, your boyfriend will love the scarf. If you don't have a boyfriend, put on that scarf and they'll come RUNNING. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

If only it were that easy...

I'm new, and I figure I'll step on some toes when I say this, but here's my suggestion on not looking like a banker - Step outside the conservative color wheel of men's fashion.

For instance-

Orange shirt with a rust colored tie

Light green shirt with a forest green tie

A classic white shirt with a navy blue tie, and next to it a messy pocketsquare splashed with gold, purple and red that matches nothing you're wearing.

Shoes in unusual tones like brick red, orange brown or dark grey.

And finally, odd vests/waistcoats.

Buy a suit that is too big for you.

yup, if you dress like a clown, that would definitely avoid looking like a banker.
