The most common sartorial mistakes the untrained make? (Scanning the room at a party)

post #1 of 85
Thread Starter 
When you're at a party, what do you notice the most? Where you almost want to tell the guy, "Look, Ive done the homework, this XYZ is wrong b/c ______" 1) Bad fit. Most common: Shirt that's too big. (Billows when tucked in. Cinches. etc.) 2) Untucked shirt that is too long. (I have finally moved away from this for good) And now to some more subtle/finer points? (you, the experts....) Poor color mix? Not enough contrast? Too much contrast? Outdated style? (gorge, pleat, style, buttons, etc) ___ PS: Sorry, I just realized this thread topic was done in 2007-2008, but don't know how to delete this) http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=39726

Office pants should get a pass, what if you work late and don't have time to change?
