You guys sucking at partying if you're scoping out the men in the room for style mistakes.

Anything done with the sole purpose of looking more non-conformist (which, invariably, everyone else is doing):

Loosened ties
Not wearing a tie with a suit
Untucked shirts (even worse: untucked shirts under a jacket)
Ugly, tacky ties
Hermes ties
Ugly, tacky pocket squares
Over-poofed or Angry Jester stuffed pocket squares
Jackets that are too tight and/or too short

However, I hate it even more when someone artlessly follows the typical iGent prescriptions (wear a pocket square, wear brown shoes, wear a knit tie, make sure you have high armholes, etc.).

You have a lot of hate in you, grasshopper.

Most of the parties I attend require rubber body suits, although leather is acceptable too.

Actually, like the OP I'd have to say bad fit is the number one...

EZ

Insecurity manifested by constantly trying to perfect the outfit:

-tugging at the shirt sleeve to make sure there's enough showing thru the jacket
-fussing with the pocketsquare as it has dipped too low into the pocket
-tuggin in the bit of loosened shirt
-adjusting the belt buckle,
-pulling up OTC socks that's slipped a bit


I've seen this on people forumites would consider "authority" on menswear.

Those who use the word "sartorial." I tend to avoid these people like the plague.

Would this include the word sartoria?

People in the "What Are You Wearing..." thread who are obviously overdoing it.
