I'll just repeat what I said in another thread; there is nothing gentlemanly about SF. Being a gentlemen has nothing to do with clothes (in either the born as or behaves like definitions of the word) and therefore has nothing to do with the behavior or manners of the people on SF.
With that said, you should have known, by reading just a few pages of posts in this thread, that a suit with contrasting stitching combined with a bright red tie on a bright red checked shirt was going to raise a pretty negative response. Not to be harsh, but for those of us who like red ties, you provided the perfect argument against the red tie (thanks to that shirt). I am not saying you have to be as boring as some here would prescribe, but loud plus loud equals bad.
