post #256 of 389

Odd vest worn without a jacket surely deserves an honourable mention in this thread:  

 

Remember, like bourbon's lurkers, those guys are putting time, effort and treasure into 'looking sharp'.

My General Manager wears  the same charcoal plaid sport coat that is so long, it hangs almost to his knees.

 

This with pants and a black polyester golf polo.

 

Every Single Day.

You might say that I had that thread in mind when posting before.  You might very well say that.  

 

Of course, I couldn't possibly comment.

As a Style Missionary, you haven't yet introduced them to the well-curated collection at Sid Moshpit?

A very success sales executive in home decor wears a classic cut solid or pinstripe suit with a synthetic white or black UnderArmour T-shirt. It even has the logo over his tit. I see this guy 6-8 times a year and he is always wearing the same thing.

He is a very nice guy. One day I will try and find a way to talk him into wearing a collared shirt.

They know full-well of its existence. And they certainly have the money (one wears a 14k Presidential and the other rotates between a Reverso and a Mark XV). However, they are so confident when they talk about their "style," I don't think there is any getting through to them.

Can't stand khakis either, not that I'd necessarily tell someone else to avoid them in the context of wanting to dress business casual.

Come to think of it I usually have a jacket and take it off. I cannot stand the shirt/tie without a jacket/vest look.

I agree!

When I was growing up in New York my old money looking trad dad- he was the son of poor immigrants,
would, upon seeing men dressed like your colleagues, comment, "out-of-towners".

We had a guy like this here. I overheard his boss yell at him about wearing sneakers. I heard him as he walked by say, "But they're black!" facepalm.gif

I've mentioned this before somewhere, but there is this one department in my company that for some reason all of the guys dress similarly. Not in the sense that they have a dress code, but more like a consistent specific style. They wear tight dress shirts, usually a bold color, and/or pattern, very slim dress pants and wacky shoes. Like burnished grey wingtips, or really light tan split toes with distressing and such. Also, a lot of french cuffs with sometimes... wait for it... a sweater over the french cuff shirt. It started with just two guys like this, then they hired another, and now there are four guys that dress like this. It is very bizarre. It is like they all feed off of each other. One day I want to say something to the lot of them, like ask a really loaded question about how they go shopping together or something.

The weirdest guy of the bunch told me that he has his wife iron the crease out of all of his trousers because "it's too hard to maintain". Also, he said his Allen Edmonds (burnished grey suede) hurt his knees because of the "bounce" corked goodyear welted shoes have. I think he's just an idiot. It is a shame because he's a really nice guy.
