What sartorial faux pas do you commit? - Page 5

post #61 of 68
Having 2 different shoes on without realizing it until mid day on more than several occasions. It usually happens during winter morning when there's not much daylight while I am in a hurry.

Let's see:
-Brown in town
-Black suits
-Sportscoat with jeans, sneakers and sometimes t-shirt and even hoodie. I might also wear an untucked dress shirt with this ensemble (not all at once)
-Suit with boots
-Light colored shoes with dark suits
-no belt or braces with suits/dress pants
-socks and dress pants don't match
-suit and no tie, especially with FC

Sartorial high five for all of those, Fuuma. (Except the black suits.)

Yay!! I'm more of a modern/fashion-oriented customer though. So the black suit goes hand in hand with that angle...

Just thought of another one. I regularly wear pleated trousers without cuffs. I do this especially on my Corneliani suits, which have pleated pants but a slimmer more modern cut that I think looks better without cuffs, regardless that the pants are pleated.

I wouldn't even call this one a faux pas. More a matter of taste. Like you, I often opt for no cuffs on pinstripes, to enhance the lines. This is especially true for Corneliani and the like, where the sleekness is part of the appeal. (As compared with a more American cut, which I wouldn't hesitate to cuff.)

We seem to have similar tastes, Odor!

I have some nice shoes with rubber -lug sole, they look fine with a dark suit, especially on those wet -muddy winter days, when its a no go for the leather soles.

Seem to be doing more of the suit with no tie, but a pocket square. Feels like a nice dress up but without the formality of the tie. Good for a change of routine., and gets compliments.

- Printed ties (just bought a Borrelli yesterday)
- Grosgrain/ regimental belts whenever I feel like it
- sockless in fall
- swivel back cufflinks
- no turnups on a DB
- 4x1 DJ
- Zegna sweater (way overpriced for the quality- but very cool cut)
- tie with a BD (italian style though- was a Borrelli shirt)
- Blazer outside the yacht club for semi-formal occassions (please, I know 'that' semi-formal but welcome in 2006)
