-adjusting the belt buckle,
-pulling up OTC socks that's slipped a bit


This is my standard restroom routine everytime I'm at a bar / social function.

I think the caveat is to do this stuff in a room with a bunch of people.

I would add to this bathroom routine a bit of spittle on the tip of the index finger across the eyebrows, keeps them in check...

Love your screen name. Finishing Atlas Shrugged soon.

I'm going to echo the first response: bad fit.

Especially for those situations that aren't so formal, and you don't want to be overdressed, and look like you're trying too hard.

I love vents still closed with the white manufacturer's stitching. Saw it at a funeral recently.

-Those who match the tie with the shirt, literally (puke green shirt+puke green tie, etc.) -Socks made of synthetics (Only if they're dark, ribbed & new would they be harder to spot) -Holes in the socks or shoes -Un-polished shoes -Worn out heels -Fuzzy thick shoe laces on dress shoes -Men that wear shoes too big for them. (You can always tell) -Loosened ties & top shirt button undone -Blousey billowing shirts half-tucked -Short-sleeved shirts with ties (rolled long sleeves & tie can pass in summer only) -Chewed finger nails and/or dirty/poorly manicured finger nails -Giant chains around neck -Sneakers with suits -Combo's featuring black pants. -Square-toed shoes, or even worse, chunky square-toed shoes (duck feet) -Mismatched patterns (tie-shirt-jacket-pants) -Jackets with T-shirts or V-necked sweaters (furry chest hair coming out of the V-neck sweater) -Missing buttons -Too much cologne -Bad breath -Boorishness & arrogance (bad behaviour kills even the nicest outfit/wardrobe) Disclaimer These are only my viewpoints and observations of the sartorialy un-skilled. It is in no way intended to hurt or offend those who cannot afford to buy expensive clothes. As long as any man is clean, his clothes appear well maintained, behaves gentlemanly, or at least makes an effort to be intelligent or humorous, he gets a pass.

Shirt sleeves too short and riding up wrists
Those pointy, slipper/loafer hybrid shoes with really soft leather and really thin soles

What do you guys think of (dressy) black shoes with blue jeans? I never ever liked that look. Either be casual or be formal. I don't the clash.

It seems like many of you don't like the square-toed shoes. So nice to find company. I always felt it looked ridiculous, like some sort of duck foot.

The most common shoe I see on the London underground are the bicycle toe shoes. I'd say 80% of men wearing suits wear these or some kind of variation. Most of the suits are actually quite nice and well fitting. I really can't understand why you'd pick these shoes to finish off an otherwise nice looking outfit...
