Anyway, in regards to the original question, I think it's a perfectly fine look as long as youre not in situations where most other people are wearing ties

Interview. Looking to "take flight" to another employer.

Sure . . . but I'd rather do the 'no tie' look, with a sport coat. One thing: I'm seeing fewer and fewer men wearing neckties, during the financial news programs. A few aren't bothering even, with jackets.

I wear bowties 2-3x per week and it does have a rebellious streak to it. But who cares, at least I take the time to dress up (most of the people in my office (a legal staff of an auto company) dress like FREAKIN SLOBS).

To me a suit without a tie is more of a casual evening out look than a good business look. Just my two cents.

Yeah, you would say that, wouldn't you?

Ditto on a pocket square and no tie.

You want to sell me a house? Wear the tie. Worried about the heat? Go with an unlined tropical wool suit, or a seersucker in a conservative color, or a cotton poplin, or a linen blend (which will wrinkle less than a 100% linen suit would).

How far south does one have to go before a reasonable person would buy a house from someone in a seersucker suit?

If you aren't going to wear a tie with a suit when will you then?

PS no tie works for me. I do this almost every day (not a fan of the sportscoat).

Its not for everyone, but if done right, it can work right...

One word: bolo.

It's 75 degrees today, I'm wearing a tie.

It was 93 the other day, I didn't have to see anybody, I didn't wear a tie.

Basically, if it's above 90, I'll bring a tie in from home to the office in case it's needed.

I'm with this point of view. The joy of seasons is that you get to wear different sorts of suits, and the ties that go with them. I always wear a jacket and tie for work. For a jaunty look at a weekend or summer evening party, I occasionally skip the tie; more often with a sportcoat and trousers combo, sometimes with a light-colored suit.
