post #76 of 88
I'll try to keep on track by only listing things that are normally considered to fall into the realm of classic style, so... -Gold or silver buttons on blazers. I know it's traditional, but unless you're on a yacht, I find it somewhat ostentasious. Horn or smoked MOP always look much nicer to me. -Overly-complex pocket square folds. -Double soles/Norwegian soles/any kind of clunky sole on anything apart from proper boots. -Longwings. I've seen the odd pair I've liked, but I almost always think 'this outfit would work better with s different shoe'. -Button-downs with a tie. Just not a fan. There are some exceptions, for example a more casual look with a knitted tie, but as a whole, a spread collar will look better. -3-roll-2s. A 3-roll-2.5 can look great, but a full on 3-roll-2 just looks odd and somewhat pointless. -Odd waistcoats with a suit. I like them with odd jackets, but it usually looks strange with a suit. -Mohair. Just not a fan of shinier fabrics; I find they often look cheap. -Overcoats and trenches that fall more than a few inches below the knee. Maybe I'm biased because I'm short, but I prefer the look of coats that stop at the knee of slightly above. -Boots with suits. -Pretty much any tie knot apart from a FIH.

Silly threads like this which have no useful purpose whatever.

I live in a country that was occupied by the Nazis during WWII, and there is not a soul around here that would immediately associate a skull&bones sign with the SS unless it were that specific S&B drawing that the SS used. More likely with pirates, or alternatively the Skull & Bones secret society at Yale.

hmm few more..
i'm sadly enjoying this thread..
- diver watches or any technical watch with dress clothes, a bespoke suit needs a dress watch on leather
- totally agree with suits and boots..unless you have some kind of texan oil money thing going on
- those oakley sunglasses men around 30-50ish have had for many years, are sporty, and seem to be worn with everything - look horrible
- cheap unbrellas with otherwise decent dress clothing
- tight fitting t-shirts trying to show off muscles - always look horrible
- the wrong type of shirt with casual or dress attire (eg spread collar and french cuffs with jeans)
- stripey dress shirts and jeans with black shoes (typical "clubbing" outfit in many suburbs or small cities of hte world) - best avoid those types of places
- overly calculated coordinating..matchy matchy shirt/pocket square/tie/etc ...looks contrived
- "tv" ps fold
- superdry
- logos on ties..gucci, burberry etc

could go on forever really

I do matchy matchy sometimes, not because it matches per se but because the items were purchased separately without thinking of another item and when I got ready to wear stuff it just worked. Eg: I never buy a shirt with a tie to match.

Every time these type of threads appear, I think we MC 'ers can come off as bit peevish. But I know no one is like this in the real life

I don't mind wearing spread collars without ties. I think I am getting used to it, though due to forced circumstances. I don't want to spend on new shirts with a button down collar or regular when I have good spring ready shirts with a spread collar.
