Pretty much perfect weather today. Spent the entire day grading math projects. Yellow seersucker pocket square, if it's not clear.

You think this is prevalent in clothing circles, try the music world. How many people do you know who claim that [insert genre/artist/whathaveyou] "isn't music"?
I understand that most people here have a fairly developed sense of style. Along with that comes a fairly long list of pet peeves. I for one dislike pointy toed shoes. Despite that, I do occasionally see people who make them look good. They are few and far between, but they do exist. I may be wrong, but I get the impression that some of you feel that no one could ever pull off your pet peeves. If I'm wrong, we may want to consideration those exceptions and what in particular makes them acceptable. I have no intention of ever buying a pair of pointy toed shoes, but I'd like to be able to articulate why I don't like them and how I feel one could wear them well. Again, I'd love to see a sockless challenge, a baseball hat challenge, a tie and no jacket challenge, etc. I would love to see how everyone performs in the face of their pet peeves.
Funny you should mention that, pointy shoes are one of my pet peeves. I know they're generally frowned upon here, but my feet are quite small and pointy shoes make them seem a bit longer, creating better balanced proportions IMO.
Love your tumblr by the way, now that's a style that I could never pull off! Very inspiring though.
I didn't know we would be discussing the Good Taste Thread this evening.
