There's overwhelming evidence on this forum that this statement is false. Also, the intersection between the "horizontal striped, contrast collar shirt" circle and the "good taste" circle is minuscule, if not microscopic - so this should explain why we don't see much of these around here.

I can appreciate that stuff posted here may be too boring, basic or "easy" for some. Have you checked the peacock thread?

If you can't execute a blue shirt and grey suit you are unlikely to be checking this thread to determine if your choices are in good taste. I was under the impression, perhaps mistaken, this thread was created to provide examples of good taste and help others answer the question of whether their fit was in good taste. What the thread has become is a conservative business dress thread. Fair enough, but not the original intent? Certainly the definition of what is in good taste is wider than that which is considered classically correct. Anyway, I think the thead becomes far less useful if all it is a regurgitation of what you see in menswear books. Enjoy.

Damn, I wish Vox / F.Corbera hadn't gone away again. He is so badly needed.

+1 I've seen several examples which have been agreed to be in good taste but would not have been appropriate for CBD. However, perhaps there is something to think about in the apparent correlation between the two.

consider the thread starter, and whnays preferred mode of dress. maybe the definition of good taste is wider, but within the scope of what the OP would consider good taste, the arc of the thread is not at all surprising to me. nor do i have an issue with it. take from it what you can, leave the rest, if it does not suit you. just my opinion.

Are the stripes actually rainbow colored or is it the pic/monitor?
