for "proper" dress, I agree, its a very poor choice, but some can pull it off. Particularly if you have a bit of punkrock pedigree, a la Get Smart

Yeah, I was going to mention that the buttoned to the top polo is a mod/skinhead staple. But I don't think anyone successfully rocks the buttoned up tieless dress shirt. It just looks like you forgot your tie or had to ditch it midday because you spilled some beer or dill sauce on it.

Didn't I read somewhere that it was Tom Cruise that popularized wearing a completely buttoned up shirt sans tie, in some movie??

A ringing endorsement if it is true

David Lynch might get away with it.

Hey mate

Given the look you went for in the second picture I would advise you go watch the movie 'Layer Cake.' Daniel Craig is your man. Don't go for the very last look in the movie (ie. the one with the light blue silk shirt) but everything else is quite good, in my opinion.

Well done for taking the comments on board when you had every right to bit right back.

While you are very fresh to this scene, your attitude will take you a long way. You will be surprised just how much you can learn off this forum in a very short amount of time.

I would advise that as you are just now figuring out what you like, that you don't follow some members in buying very expensive suits, shirts etc. Start at what your next door neighbour might call expensive, or what people here might term medium priced.

Ebay is a great resource also, keep an eye on that.

The colour of your shirt is dated, by the way (for a young person). I don't think anyone has yet mentioned that.

What's wrong with reviving threads?

I think there was a forum glitch or something, because until your comment there I had no idea I was bumping a thread.

It was on page one for me, I didn't really look at the date!!
