A gala performance or first night maybe, or if one is a celeb, or is likely to be on TV. The performers don't care what the audience wears. In fact in most theatres they can't see much of the audience from the stage anyway, due to the bright stage lighting and the house itself is usually dark during a performance. They might care more if their singing and music is appreciated or not.

Too big jeans. They tend to be too light a color too.

Buttoning the bottom suit button.

Cheap, ALDO shoes.

Showing too much skin if you don't have good skin.

Massive, parachute navy shirts

My only real gripe is when guys do the sockless thing with a suit, especially with loafers or moccasins. I'll accept the casual shorts and tennis shoes thing with no socks, but trying to imitate the "Italian no sock trend" makes me ill, especially when imagining the reek of the foot sweat odor and sticky blisters on the corns.......and don't try and convince me that some of these guys don't shave their legs, because the baby smooth ankles don't jive with the conspicuously hairy arms......smelly, blistered, shaven man cankles........ eeeewwww!

I tried loafer with no socks once... when I had to pop down to the local shop to pick up some milk. I got blisters. How the hell can anyone go sockless is beyond me.

See far too many guys wearing trainers/runners with jeans - not a good look. Cheers Ash

1. Men who colour coordinate watch strap, shoes and belts. Be original and show some contrast.

2. Young guys dressing up in old man gear

3. Overly tight clothing. Seriously, how gay do you want to look?

4. Pink shirts

5. Cuff links

6. Bead bracelets. Absolutely horrific

7. Skinny Jeans

8. Deep v-necks

9. Scarves in summer

Not in general. I can not think of any social situation within a metropolitan area - relaxed private parties, BBQ etc. naturally excluded - where at least a casual type of suit is not appropriate and generally accepted. It's correct that there are people who will consider a suit wearer overdressed then but that is nowadays the case in any social situation, too. So why worry?

I'm mostly a lurker on this site, however: Bluetooth earpiece worn anywhere outside of your car is ridiculous looking. Navy and black worn together While ive always got the latest technology, i dont wear any of it clipped to me

I don't ever use collar stays, and I wear OCBDs un-BD'd on purpose What does bug me is people who wear shirts with collars that don't suit them. For example, a low collar on someone with a long, thin neck makes the shirt look, well, borrowed.

I wouldnt go so far as to call it a mistake. What exactly is it that you find disagreeable about it?

I just dislike the look of it and I do find it affected and pompous on youngish people... It is all right in the country but I don't get it in town... Not a fan of Luca, are we...
Actually , he is quite a nice guy... I have met him at the Mount Street shop and he is quite pleasant.. Just find him sometimes a bit peacockish...
