Rolled up sleeves on blazers/sport coats/suit jackets. Been seeing alot of this in GQ editorials lately. a terrible message to the masses.

Is this still known as the 'Regis look?'

I always thought the Regis was the satin tie with the same coloured shirt. Red shirt, red satin tie, etc.

This is also terrible.

As in the Miami Vise look, Don Johnson and all that? I suppose fashions and trends come and go, 80s fashions probably due for a revival, after all we've had 70s revivals.

We had a 70's revival and were smart enough to leave the leisure suits in that era. Can't we do the same with this trend?

solid coloured bright dress shirts. French blue? red? not even once.

Of course, if it weren't for this look, we'd have no one to sell us cellular phone accessories at mall kiosks.

Believe it or not, French Blue was a rarely worn color at one time. Then at some point in the 90s -- or was it 80s -- it was 'discovered' and suddenly every Tom, Dick, and Harry -- or was it Jason, Tyler, and Brandon -- was wearing said shirt.

- Black suits (Somebody better be dead...)

- That ridiculous piping on the pockets and lapels of cheap polyester suits

- Single Monkstrap Shoes

- The "Chinos, Vans, fully-buttoned-polo-shirt" uniform of the under 30s

- Very cropped blazers - cover your ass!

- Crepe soles - on anything and everything, especially those giant wedge ones Grenson seems to have gone mad for

- Graphic tees, especially ones from Hollister - they should pay you advertising money for wearing those things.

- Untapered trousers

 

#1 - People who don't understand the pleasure of an expensive pair of shoes.

 

I like this thread.

I quite like the rolled up look, although I see lots of people with fully lined suit jackets that they wear as sportcoats (Another peeve - get some sportcoats, suits can't always double up) and then roll the sleeves - looks too boxy and wrong. I'd say it only works with an unlined cotton/linen blazer.

 

Although I totally agree that GQ sends some horrible messages to its readers - to the point now that you can tell instantly in public whether or not a man reads GQ. (Tip 1 - he will not be accompanied by a female)
