The entire point of this forum is to conform to "SF approved"
Anyone who denies it is a liar.

Does anyone here fasten the bottom button of their jacket?

No, the entire point of this forum is to have everyone convert to the same set of rules.
Anyone who does wear this would be laughed off this forum, despite the fact that most of the country wears this.

Does anyone here wear square-toed shoes?

Does anyone here wear Hugo Boss suits?

Does anyone here wear triple pleated pants?

Does anyone here wear Kenneth Cole, Bostonian, or Cole Haan shoes?

Does anyone here think leather soled shoes suck and are uncomfortable?

Does anyone here love the comfort of rubber soled shoes?

Does anyone here think a tie dimple looks stupid?

Does anyone here wear anything with a logo?

Does anyone here wear big white blobby sneakers?

Does anyone here wear striped dress shirts that are untucked?

No, the entire point of this forum is to have everyone convert to the same set of rules.
Anyone who does favor the above would be laughed off this forum, despite the fact that most of the country does...

So, becoming "SF approved" is the whole point.
Anyone here who thinks they are a rugged individualist is completely delusional...

If you want to disagree, then please start dressing like how I described above, or STFU.

Agree and I don't think there's anything necessarily wrong with that.

"SF Approved" is to dressing yourself as music theory is to playing an instrument. You don't have to conform to all the rules, but if you start breaking the rules without first learning what they are and the reasons they exist, in most cases you will just look like an idiot.

Take, for example, buttoning only the top button of a 2-button coat. There are three stages of knowledge to pass through. The first is ignorance, buttoning both buttons because you don't know better, which in most cases looks awful. The second is knowing the rule, you start to never button the second button because you've read that it should never be buttoned. The third stage is actually knowing why, and in this stage you realise that some coats are cut to allow both buttons to be done up, though others (most) are not, and you know how to tell the difference.

Even if there is an 'SF Approved' look -- and I can't begin to say what that would be as I haven't a clue what is and isn't approved -- I can't think of any two people here who dress alike. So if there is a 'look' ... it seems to allow for a nice diversity.

So a guy with all his jacket buttons fastened b/c he doesn't know any better (ie: Hasn''t gone to some internet forum to read the rules) somehow looks different than a guy with all his jacket buttons fastened b/c he is some seasoned dandy who is now breaking the rules? LOL. Keep telling yourself that, you compliant sheep. There is one way to dress here, and if you disagree, then start wearing the stuff in my list, or STFU.

Many thanks to RE for illustrating the difference in quality between his posts here and posts from people like SM.

My god, are you really this stupid? Maybe if you try reading my post another three or four times you might understand what I'm actually saying.

Most jackets will look terrible with both buttons done up, regardless of who is wearing it. Just the more experienced person knows enough to notice in the rare occasions where the jacket is cut such that it can be done without looking bad. This does not apply to 99% of the suits or sportcoats that the average person will be wearing though.
