"You may like it and that would be fine (no, assumption), but don't describe fallacies (O rly) about people being close minded (yes, close minded = calling someone a clear idiot for doing something that does not jive with your "opinion) when they don't share the same opinion (O rly x2) about a subject."
Frankie22 you might be a new member, but just shut up. You act like a child. Look at the ''what are you wearing today'' thread if you want to see pictures of me. Also that has nothing to do with this thread. Don't come on here bitching about other people opinion and asking them to show there pictures. And yes i do find him a idiot for wearing sneakers under a suit. If you have problems with that, go and leave this topic. For someone who think's he can dress(speaking about you) you are barely backing this up. The better word to describe this is totally not.

By the way referring to this if you didn't understand it:

Does he wear them again?

Well he has his own brand and I don't think he use the same outfits.

I will never understand sneakers with a suit, the old Kiton boutique manager in NYC Luigi swore by this look and I thought he always looked awful. If you want to wear sneakers and a suit, the suit should probably not be a classic worsted type of suit, maybe a linen or some funky fabric. The combo with the green sneakers and purple pants is bizzare.
I think a lot of people are drinking from the blogosphere kool aid, rather than develop their own style. Classic menswear is classic for a reason. I think when a lot of these guys look back a few years from now at their pics, they are going to say 'WTF was I thinking?".

Wearing sneakers with a suit can be a good look, but you have to follow the precepts to Fuuma's guide to everything, ever (now on sale for four easy payments of $67.99, buy now!):

-The suit has to be from a brand SW&D likes not something MCers wear: Dior Homme, Raf Simons, Helmut Lang, etc.
-You need to wear simple white sneakers (think white/white stan smiths or delicate designer sneakers (think Lanvin), avoid all sort of trainers/running shoes/shiny Nike shit
-The rest of the outfit has to be casual, no tie, no patterned suit, material of the suit is cotton, moleskine, velvet, shiny wool etc, suit is slim and maybe shorter than usual. Maybe you wear a v-neck tee instead of a shirt, if you wear a shirt it absolutely has to be white and plain and not have silly stuff like a spread collar.
-You need to have a look (facial hair, haircut etc) that labels you as some casual dude, not some office dude.
-If you are Italian or a blogger just give up, you don't have what it takes for this look.

The reason the Pitti-spazzatura-GQ crowd dresses like shit is made painfully obvious by the way they use sneakers: they think one casual element is enough to bring a fun casual touch when it reality it is how you start from a casual mindset and mix various casual elements. They're the fun socks of dressing....

Buttoning a collar is silly. Period.

I am afraid I don't get it. BTW don't try the sneakers thing, you really have to come from a fashion/SW&D mindset to pull it off. For example when I said casual suit I didn't mean it in the MC sense of a patterned suit showing texture, I was thinking of a minimalist fashion plain black suit say one button peak, no texture and absolutely no discernible pattern.

Note: I generally like your style, just sayin'

Thanks, I appreciate that. I wasn't planning on the sneakers/suit thing, or referring to it; I understand the look principle you're describing, though. Makes perfect sense to me.

But I was referring to your hate of (casually worn) spread collars, by expressing (well, trying to express) my hate for button-down collars smile.gif.
