I don't wear a suit to work everyday, just when it is absolutely necessary. Casual to me is no tie but I post in both threads anyway, no serious reason as to where I post though.

Not sure about Kulata's answer to this question. For me though, it's a combination of several factors that make an outfit MC casual. Kulata's last fit is a good example of this distinction from just a regular MC WAYWRN outfit. The suit in itself is casual, being tan (cotton?), with patch pockets, worn with a saturated shirt and suede monks. It's not just about loosing a tie, this outfit wouldn't look nearly as good, or casual, if the suit was a worsted navy suit with flap pockets, worn with black calf oxfords and a cutaway collared business shirt, sans tie.

Then of course, there are several other varieties of what can make an outfit MC casual.

^That is a better distinction

@EFV, sure and thanks for your insight.  I don't ordinarily wear suits w/o ties. To be more clear, if I were to wear an odd jacket/trouser combo with a tie, I'd post it the other thread.  W/o a tie I'd post here.  I only own one casual suit (seersucker) that I'd post here if w/o a tie, there with.  I might be alone in having this be my demarcation between casual or not. 

Both his fits I feel "belong" in either thread, so curious to hear his and other's input about what others feel makes something casual or not, while still being traditionally dressed (jacket and trouser combos).
