I m fond of accessories like ties and pocket square and cufflinks and can't see people wearing

1. A unmatched tie with suit
2. Wearing shoes which is not suiting with the dress they are wearing
3. Last but not least wearing large sizing clothes which seems that they are not wearing, they have just hanged it on their body.

Since this is back from the dead. I agree with most posts above except the pink shirt which I rock all the time.

1.) Sports watches with suits--to me this is the worst look ever as the wearer thinks that his watch is amazing as he spent two months salary on his Rolex or Omega and doesn't know the first thing about watches or the difference between a dress watch and a sports watch--get a clue! I have even seen this look with a tux ala James Bond.

2.) Somone actually wearing a suit straight off the rack--including labels on the sleeves etc. I saw this more than once at a recent international tradeshow from various African delegations. I actually felt sorry for the countries that they were there to represent.

I can't believe I forgot to mention this. It drives me insane. Having seen it happen even once is far too much. Who are these dudes and what are they thinking?

I kind of half agree with this. It can be done as long as one ditches the metal bracelet. A leather (or even nylon) strap makes a big difference.

Did I mention my new line of clothing? It's called "Corporate Shill." Tommy Hilfiger is bad with this, and D&G and CK are horrible too. Whoopee, you can afford a $60 (or whatever) black cotton t-shirt that says D&G on it. You must have good fashion sense.


God is this true

I have seen people not even remove that white X stitch that tack the vents closed, or even remove the stitching on the pockets. I remember I was once at an event where the vast majority of people still had the cheap looking labels on the (way to long) sleeves, which are attached with those ugly plastic things.

I don't know what the Africans were thinking, but lots of Chinese from Mainland China do this to show off the brands of suits they bought. For them, the tag on the sleeve is a badge of honour for brand chasers. I think this practice is on the wane, though.

Think Hermes Man.

At what juncture does Sprezzatura branch into good looking nudists who, thanks to genetics, need not work out to have perfect bodies? Seems like the ultimate form of looking good with a total sense of nonchalance.

I can't wait for the menswear blogs to jump on that!

A lot might just not know better. I remember there were a question about this last year. The person simply doesn't know you suppose to take them off.

That might be an excuse, or the stores in China just assumed that the customers wanted the tag left on. The standard practice is for the store to remove the sleeve tag unless the customer specifically requested that it be left alone.

The practice could have been so widespread that the ignorant simply thought it was the way to wear suits.

Correct me if I'm wrong but believe that some people deliberately keep the stitching on the pockets (except for the breast pocket) in...
