What sartorial faux pas do you commit? - Page 3

post #31 of 68
-White anytime of the year
-Brown shoes at night
-I only wear knit ties (I really only wear ties under sweaters)
-Boat shoes, and I have never even been on a boat.

Probably a lot more that I cannot think of right now...

I pretty much dress according to the weather, no matter what time of the year it is. I believe that breaking the rules, with the right person, can lead to really interesting results (especially mixing patterns!). But, in order for someone to break the rules and still look good, they must actually know the rules to begin with.

Just about everthing mentioned in the previous posts I guess--except I don't wear short-sleeve shirts, don't untuck my shirt, don't wear shorts outside, don't wear exercise clothes except to walk the Dobie, don't wear hats (just hoodies and/or [cashmere]baseball caps), .....

Weird thing, and I would not do this with any of my other suits for business, but for some strange reason I have always liked the look of a white, button-down collar shirt with a three-piece suit. Somehow the collar being locked down dovetailing into the vest always looks so "neat" to me.

OK...go ahead and shoot me...

I never match my socks with my pants.

Whew - that felt good. Okay, now you go.
I'm wondering, is this a Trad-ish look or more a Thom Browne look?

I'm sure it feels good to get that off your chest.

I have been guilty of this occasionally, however, I don't necessarily consider socks to be an extension of one's trousers.

I don't think it's really either one. I didn't really get this look from anywhere, just kind of came up with it on my own. Most of the time nobody even sees it unless I'm sitting down and I have one of my legs crossed over the other - then it just gives me a cool casual look.

I'll break any sartorial rule just to get a rise out of the traditionalists/conservatives.

I feel like a Mafia Don after confession.

I can be seen picking flowers or sitting on a chair for a few minutes on Sundays, on the quiet street side of the house, still wearing my nightgown and/or bathrobe.

Once in a while, I'll wear black pennyloafers (Bass Weejuns) with my suits to work. It's kind of high school-ish, I know -- but so damned comfy.

I found him to be an interesting fellow whose knowledge of the menswear business and sartorial history was as good as anyone that I've met.

Just out of curiosity, then: on what basis do you come to regard his sartorial aphorisms as dubious?
