NORE,

you are a breath of fresh air in an otherwise stale forum, with multiple clones and copycat dressers.

While I personally would not choose to wear the bright color combos you so thoroughly enjoy, I applaud your efforts. fistbump.gif

My biggest problem with this outfit is the shirt collar. The widespread cutaway collar with all that white band showing under the tie, coupled with the fine white stripes on the mauve-y ground, plus what may just be an optical illusion but sort of a very cute little tie knot, is just too feminine.

The jacket also looks like it doesn't fit all that well. Looks sort of boxy, which is doubly incongruous given what's going on behind it.

Anyways, that's one stupid ass critique.

At least you take garish and obnoxious and go the full 10 yards. I do not like any of what you've posted and I like this one the least. I don't like those colors under any condition, not to mention they look pretty bad against most caucasian complexions regardless of anything else.

I think a point not yet mentioned in this thread is that NORE does have a darker complexion. And that gives him more leeway to experiment with louder color contrasts. I do not say that I like what I'm seeing here, it looks for me too much like "Hey folks, I'm there!!!" posing that a self-confident man rarely needs to get noticed in public. But for the sake of integrating a neon-green tie into an outfit he is an example where it may look good when done carefully.

I agree that his skin color and even cultural associations matter. However to me wearing a colourful, patterned shirt and going tieless is different than wearing some sort of business getup in candyland thing. I'd like it a lot better if he had been wearing the same grey suit and some purposefully gaudy colourful shirt with a few buttons undone and more casual shoes.

It seems like the members people tend to worship on here are actually the most 'safe' dressers which equally makes them boring.
I say live a little. Live a lot! If what you put on makes you feel good then go out feeling good and knowing that you look good. I am of the belief that a person wearing a burlap sack that exudes confidence will always look better than a bespoke fitted dude with no panache.
Check it, while I am aware that many of you would never wear this I posted this in a thread and it was moderated out:
1000
Why? Probably because of the colors. But I felt [and know I looked] like a boss. Now I'm not mad, not everyone wants do this or some of the other stuff I do, but I still say try something different. Live a little.
If things keep on the way they are going, all of the listeners will be wearing navy or gray suits with white or light blue shirts, solid navy or brown ties, navy socks, gunboats and a TV fold. C'mon, son. C'mon Styleforum. Where's the style?

 

It takes a certain personality to be able to wear a lime green tie, and wear it in a meeting, or when meeting importnt clients.

I've seen politicians with ties in all kinds of ridiculous colors (incl. lime green) and ill-fitting suits etc. confused.gif

Thank you. Those who strictly abide by the rules are admitting to a lack thereof. I miss Vox Barberra.

What? That's idiotic* absurd** a joke*** ridiculous. It takes a certain personality to do anything. More vacuous English.

* Offensive to idiots.
** Offensive to Kierkegaard.
*** Offensive to people who tell jokes or NORE when he dresses like the Joker.

Speaking of which we don't use the term, 'retarded' anymore.
