Because casual style isn't style?  And when I see a tie, something that is formal go on a casual outfit I recognize it looks idiotic.

Trying to deviate within the rules is a lot more of a challenge that simply breaking them. Conservative, yes, but it is neither easy nor is it as simple as scrambling for a metaphorical manual.

 

Of course, breaking them involves more risk, but the best breaks are done by those who fully understand (not just know) the rules they are breaking (Holdfast is probably the best example of this from the WAYWRN thread).

Who said that? 

 

So you think a knit tie is formal?  You're just proving my point, a knit is far less formal than a traditional tie, imo.

Thanks for getting this thread back on track.  I think knitted ties like these are the ugliest things you can put on next to strewn garbage: http://www.mrporter.com/product/188009

 

You're a man, not a teddy bear for christ's sake.  And I applaud you for not looking like a tie and jeans wearing douche :)

 

A knit tie is by definition much more casual,we're not talking about a solid and luxurious formal tie here. A knit tie can be worn with denim (or other tactile fabrics) quite well, a concept which you find idiotic, I guess. That's pretty idiotic if you ask me.

"Who said that?" - you did.  You said I couldn't judge style because I hardly ever wore a suit before, and because I have casual style.  If I remember correctly you bolded those terms.

 

And yes, a knit tie is formal.  I saw Ivy League professors wear them with at college campuses, of course not with jeans though.  You think they'll dress casual there?

He was right. You can't judge. It's quite clear that your experience and knowledge is rather limited. So have some humility, stop trying to tell anyone else about style and learn a bit more first - whether it's here or over in SW&D or preferably both.

A knit tie is less formal than a traditional tie yes.  But to me it's still formal because it is STILL a tie, and ties are formalwear.  And by the way, I'll keep giving my opinion, so keep listening if you want.

At first I used to like this type of suit and I intended to buy this suit but now I may find it ridiculous enough to avoid it.

 

Actually, I have no big problem with this jacket although I know it looks scantily but the trousers is more than ludicrous in my eyes.

It is a Burberry London suit (slim fit line or used to be called skinny fit at their official website). It costs approximately $2000 for a suit with a half canvassed jacket so I think its price is highly inflated just because of its brand name. Thus, it's the most ridiculous point :)

I'm sorry for my terrible English.

but it's hungry.

 

Also, when we say "knit ties" are we just talking about the square ends (super informal) or the Yount/Wang pointed ends (less informal)?
