This should be pinned as the ultimate refutation of all the silly "blue jacket and grey pants make you look like a security guard" comments.

You know, I'm not sure anybody actually thinks that. I know people think that other people think that, but I've yet to see such a combination in this thread where the thought even crossed my mind. I've also never seen anyone else ever describe a person's fit as such.

This may be because I live in navy and gray.

Oh, I completely agree that no one thinks that when they see it in real life. But I see comments all the time about not wanting to wear that combination because it "might make them look like a security guard". Saw one just this week, will have to see if I can dig it up.

Granted, I think it was in one of Reevolving's threads, so that doesn't mean much.

I've also never seen a security guard in a navy sport coat with grey trousers.

Reevolving mentioned in the MC Casual thread that the navy jacket/grey pants look is nearly impossible to pull off. Then he posted a pic of some douchey Banana Republic model. I can't think of an easier combo to pull off...but then again this was Reev.

LOL. It's most basic and easy look there is...incredibly hard to fuck up. Good thing I never visit the MC casual thread.

Fair enough, it goes to show that trusting advice on the internet (and irl!) is sort of like a minefield, and full of self-proclaimed 'experts'. Imagine you're a complete newbie and you read that navy jackets with grey pants are a no go, you'd miss out on one of the most classic and elegant looks. I guess the only way to be sure is to find multiple sources confirming a statement.

This is a concept which is entirely lost on me. I just don't get it - what makes having a collar roll like that so attractive? I don't even own any button down shirts so its more out of curiosity than desire to emulate.

try wearing a button down collar with a tie and you'll see the reason. Also, i prefer a taller collar with longer points and that typically coincides with a good roll. YMMV.
