Wearing suits without ties

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
Who else thinks that wearing a suit without a tie is just wrong.

It may be the current "fashion", but it shows a definite lack of style.

The majority of people wear a shirt unbuttoned, and it just falls under the jacket
Lapels and looks sloppy.

I guess people have no idea how stupid they really look.

Your thoughts.

Seems very English to me. I think a suit without a tie looks better than a tie without a jacket.

Haha, then don't venture in SW&D, you'd have a heart attack seeing blazer with jeans and suit with t shirts.

Look, dood, if you don't like it, don't do it, but don't write a post like this; it's unwarranted.

it's called the Ahmadinejad. I absolutely don't mind it and it can look nice.

I think it's all about context and occasion. A suit with no tie is significantly more casual but still pretty dressed up and there are occasions that call for that IMHO. And if you wear a pocket square it looks like you HAVE paid attention and less like you don't own a tie to begin with or just forgot it altogether. It's not a favorite look of mine but I do "get it".

Then of course there are summer suits in linen which I feel don't call for a tie as much, if at all.

If it makes you feel good then that's all that matters. Fuck what other people think. Go with the flow.

A linen suit (or any other casual suit for that matter) looks great without a tie. But yes, a tie without a jacket is indeed an aberration. I was thinking about this today because I've seen so many jacketless suits (with a tie) on my commute facepalm.gif

Suit without tie looks ok when shirt has a bit of spread collar and the collar is stiff enough so i stays in place even without a tie. I have lately discovered PRL regent shirts works well for me when without a tie.

If you're going to go tieless, I think it also helps to wear a patterned shirt. To me, a solid white or blue shirt just makes it look like the wearer forgot his tie. George Clooney and Tom Ford are exempted from this rule.
