Agreed.  I wore this on the way home.  I only had two clean shirts left.  I think this was the better choice.

This is the cheapest shirt like this I could find at $55.  It could be slimmer in the waist though.

Manton would agree with me...perhaps you should refer to his thread on CBD before you comment. This also comes from years of experience in a highly conservative professional business environment.

 

Rule was not made up.

 

a real CBD fit entails no dimples

Shirt and tie are a bit too busy for my taste.

Thanks for all the thumbs yesterday/today, everyone!  I think I'll skip the gloves with the morning coat in future, until I can afford a grey pair; I don't think the black ones add anything.

It's me "cutting loose" while remaining within my comfort zone. Something Holdfast said (twice) struck a chord.

I think I've become a skilled dresser over the last year or so. But also safe, as HF has pointed out many of the skilled dressers currently posting on WAYRN have become. A few months ago, when selecting some of his favorite fits, HF selected one of mine, commenting that he liked it because it appeared I was having a bit more fun with the picture and outfit than I normally do.

So I've decided to occassionally make the effirt to dress just at the edges--but within--my very narrow comfort zone. That a brown and white checked shirt combined with a brown and tan neat should represent that indicates just how narrow my zone may be.

Serious question, is this what you wear when you are literally hanging at home? Do you own a t-shirt and workout shorts? Fuzzy slippers?

Manton also called dimples gay. But it was circa 2007 when I suppose you could get away with that. http://www.styleforum.net/t/33066/conservative-business-dress/
(OT - he was a flaming asshole in this thread. Some hilarious stuff for we fashion nerds).

I'm with whoever said it is more work to NOT have a dimple. I think Manton double crossed himself on this one.

So if there was ever a rule to break, I'll break this one 99% of the time, cause I think it looks better. But to each his own.

We drove from Salem, MA to NYC today.  This is what I wore.  If I were staying in all day, I wouldn't wear this.  I rock a pair of black watch room shoes from Uniqlo.  Still working on the black watch pjs and robe though.

I'm short (5' 6") the no break is to create an illusion of being slightly taller. The white trousers are the newer of the two and better length wise. My next pairs will be cut maybe 3/4" longer.
