Black shirt: trying too hard? - Page 4

post #46 of 87
The guy above me pretty much summed it up. I think the worst is when people pair black shirts and silver ties.

Black shirt is for man who cuts hair at Supercuts.

Such comments come from people without the imagination to wear a black shirt properly. That is why sites like SF exist.

It didn't look bad!!!
Personally I would never wear a black shirt with a suit and I even don't have a black shirt at all, but even this spooky appearing description was OK on this special person.

I like it with a casual look, but not so much with the suit. I'm curious though - why is Dior Homme all-black so cool here, but the black suit is not?? Like Chris.'s looks, with black jeans/boots/hoodies - cool as Goth-Ninja can be, doesn't Goth-Ninja get a boss who wears all black? I think it can be fun when you WANT to wear a costumey looking outfit.

Though I'm about as skinny as the models, I'm no fan of DH suits at all.

Wrong audience, mate. Most people in MC wouldn't know what you're talking about. Thom Browne, DH, or pretty much anything all-black, don't get much positive press over here either.

Maybe he's thinking about GQ's style forum.

In my line of work, it's a staple. Yes, even with the occasionally required black suit and/or silver tie. It is what it is, and I don't really mind it.

Are you an undertaker or a countertenor who sings rock?

I have a few Black shirts, never worn with a tie or any other Black in an ensemble. Just the other night I wore a cream linen suit with a Black linen shirt.

We'll just leave that to your imagination.

Do you subscribe to any classical music concerts? There seems to be this culture now amongst musicians that anything goes as long as it is black: blacks shirts worn open, black t-shirts, black lounge suits. Soloist too - countertenors amongst them - show up wearing black street wear. I outdress the conductor with increasingly monotonous regularity. And no I don't even have to wear a tail coat to do it. And if the conductor does wear a tail coat you can guarantee he will wear a dress coat to a matinee concert instead of a morning coat.

More like for wannabe gangsters.
