- Unnecessarily large shirt buttons

- Laceless dress shoes that aren't single or double monks

- Peak lapel jackets other than the black tie variety

- Hats, of any kind

- Shell cordovan wingtips

- Shoes that cost over $2,000

- Spread BD shirts (yes I'm talking about you gdl)

- Solid coloured silk pocket squares other than cream or white

- "Bond" style turn back dress shirt cuffs

I understand where you're coming from on all these, but I thought that I would mention that top hats can lengthen line.

I have soured on those too. Haven't made one in five years. Sort of regret that one, too.

What Hong Kong tailor did you use?

My list:

(1) Annorexic sleeves
(2) Tan shoes
(3) Fauxtiquing
(4) Slim-fit anything
(5) Super-high gorges
(6) Jeans unsuited for adult men with responsibilities and real jobs (you know what I'm talking about)
(7) Linen pocket squares that aren't plain white
(8) Folded silk pocket squares
(9) Lapel ornaments
(10) Skinny lapels
(11) Novelty shoe designs
(12) Allen Edmonds

Aren't you still under thirty years of age? This list will change again and again and again. You may even find some of the things you have nixed added back.
