Wearing suits without ties - Page 2

post #16 of 38
I'm wearing a suit without a tie today. But it's a summer-weight unlined tan poplin suit, so it's a little more casual. I don't think I would wear a regular wool suit without a tie, although I will frequently wear a sport jacket with slacks and no tie.

The offense here is the extra long sleeves on coat. His publicist needs to get on the ball. I'm already making the assumption he doesn't know any better......

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.

 

I do. But some people can get away with it. It's not exactly against the law.

I don't do it, but what's the huge faux pas with a tie and no jacket/blazer? If the shirt fits well and the tie is the correct length I've never really thought to myself that it looked bad.

It doesn't look bad if you're a software engineer / waiter / bus driver... lol8[1].gif

 

Now, really, I don't know what does exactly make it bad. But it just looks like something's missing, or like a work uniform.

That's the exact opposite of what I think. I never see bus drivers in suits. Waiters with strict dress codes generally wear a vest. Software engineers normally wear polos or shirts with no blazers. I think you're stretching a little.

 

Suit and a tie is probably the closest thing you can get to uniform short of actually wearing uniforms.

Shirt with tie but no coat is only wrong because you can't assess the fit of the coat. Period. Be honest at least with yourself.

Right suit w/o a tie can be done. Tie w/o a jacket CAN'T!

I'm a software guy that deals a lot with legal firms. I can't imagine wearing suit with a tie anymore for business. Most lawyers don't wear suits in the office unless they are going to court. I feel over dressed everytime I wear a suit to their office nevemind with a tie. Mostly I just wear a sports coat without a tie.

I agree. Even politicians and corporate CEOs are committing this " Fashion"
A sport coat without a tie usually looks OK, but a dark business suit with a
dress shirt and no tie looks like the wearer hadn't finished dressing, IMHO.

 Well I guess it depends on what country you live in. Bus drivers around here wear slacks/shirt/tie, same for waiters, and I've seen many software engineers wearing a short sleeved shirt with a tie.

His clothes make him look like a tosser but he's got a nice bird so he must be doing something right.

The only time a wool suit should be worn without a tie or suitable shirt is when you lend it to a woman to keep warm.

Well, he probably don't call women birds, so perhaps you can start there.

Better than nothing though, I suppose.
