Knit Ties. So so ugly.

Also, unbuttoned BD shirts.

For God's sake, man, it took me the better part of 45 seconds to figure out what you were even trying to say here. Learn how to use apostrophes correctly (hint: it's not to form plurals).

I have to disagree on the knit tie but that is my opinion and you are entitled to your own as well. Personally I think they are interesting and unique for most people due the small ratio of SF posters to common folk. I think they one of the only really acceptable "skinny" ties that can work with a business casual look (depending on the office) and the wider model is perfect with a suit that does not have anorexia of the lapel.

As for the BD shirt...I would never wear one with a suit, period. With a v-neck sweater and odd pants of chinos, I agree with you. For casual wear with jeans and untucked, I think keeping them buttoned on, say, a gingham shirt looks very stuffy. I prefer the artfully disheveled look in that situation.

Personally I cant get behind whole cuts:



Whenever I see it, it reminds me of a really crude/rough stitch job after surgery or something.

Also double monks. I'm like regular/single monks. But double monks just doesn't look right to me:


reminds me of double velcro shoes I used to wear as a kid.

Also, the jacket would look much better with a very soft, natural shoulder, like a sweater. - Needs accessories: at least one stick umbrella, a briefcase or tote bag, ray bans, bracelets. Where is the lapel flower? Very careless. - Poster should be jumping into the air - Shirt and tie are a disaster. Where's the sprezz? Should be a bold checked BD (with buttons undone) and a yellow or chartreuse tie. - On that note, suit fabric is boring. A heavy tweed in a double Prince of Wales check, maybe with some metallic threads, would enliven the outfit. - Not even a hint of fun socks? - Leaves on the ground make me think that the whole outfit would be set off by a nice wool topcoat with gloves sticking out of the breast and hip pockets.

Dunno where that Gilgamesh quote came from but it is brilliant. Hits almost everything right on the head except he forgot comedy beards.
