Dos and don'ts are subject to personal style ... some 'exceptions' to the rules will never work, but others work well for individuals.

I, for one, have worn FC shirts without a jacket for years. This means, of course, I also wear them without ties. That makes sense, considering I was wearing FC shirts with jeans in my 20s when this was unheard of.

Was this a "don't"? Perhaps. Nonetheless, my point is that within the confines of my personal style these fashion 'don'ts' became 'dos' and worked very well.

Some don'ts will never transcend, while most dos will work well for anyone. You must be mindful moving in one direction, while the other requires less caution.

Absolutely. I do think it is best to start with the rules and then gradually see which ones you can get away with flouting, based on your own style/bearing/physique, etc. I attend a southern law school and most of my fellow students are 4-5 years younger than me. They are almost all still stuck in the beginning stages - black/navy suit, white shirt, solid tie mode, black shoes. Most of them look foolish if they do "break the rules". Nothing wrong with that, it's safe and conservative. I do encourage my friends to try to break out of that mold, though.

(It sucks that at age thirty, I already see that "youth is wasted on the young")

Make sure your tie is tied so the bottom tip of is touching the belt buckle, if it hangs above the belt you will look like Gomer Pyle.

Never tie a Full Windsor Knot unless you have a wide spread collar, and never EVER tie one with a button-down shirt.

Don't do an exact match of the pocket square to the tie. (Remember, they sell matching tie/ pocket square sets at Sears, but not Brooks Bros!)

If there is a label on the cuff of the suit coat CUT IT OFF before going out in public (you would not believe how many guys I have seen with the label intact).

Good point, unbearable thing indeed.
