In fact, I even tuck my t-shirts these days.

It's very difficult to make a button-up shirt under a blazer casual and SW&D. That's why a tee is a much easier choice. I've seen a few synthese fits where the shirt was untucked and it looked good.

What I'm thinking of doing is getting some mandarin collar shirts

^^Thanks. I wear cord blazers and shirts casually all the time. Perhaps I look MC casual though, dont know..

I guess something like this falls in this category? A suit that doesn't really adheres to the typical rules but still look good?

Interesting thread, Parker.

Oh and I've posted this photo like 5-6 times, but I think this is also appropriate here.

Davide Taub, a savile row tailor wearing his tux casually. I think it shows that one can still get away with heavy structure and shaping as long as it's balanced. It also doesn't look out of place next to the guy wearing a button down shirt and chinos.

not going to go looking for fits because I don't have the time, but for workwear esque looks, EG as mentioned is a great go to and can be happy pretty cheap on B&S and ebay. I get a lot of wear out of my bedford and baker jackets just going to class and such. although a lot of times they are modeled in the look books with untucked shirts, I often tuck, looks cleaner.

I think dress shirts looked best tucked in most of the time -- unless the suit or shirt has some design element which calls for it untucked.

 

 

 

also, the tux jacket can be cool. I guess it all depends on how you pull it off. I'm more apt to wear it with other formal stuff. I love this Umit Benan lounge-hound get-up. This is what jet looks like in my mind. '-)

Was thinking white hidden placket shirt + gray Diors + MMM zips (it's a midnight jacket). I'll probably just play it safe with my Scandinavian-proxy acquired KVA/Plokhov zipper blazer lovechild thing.

Have been looking for an informal tux jacket for a couple of months now. There was a brilliant DH one up on sufu with accompanying runway pic I can no longer find, very much in the vein of what parker linked above.

I could be way wrong, but I don't like the idea of a hidden placket shirt with gray dior jeans.

Really can't go wrong with a loose fitting white v or scoopneck tee here.

Dress code disagrees with instincts redface.gif guess maybe sub jeans for trousers of some sort. But then I might as well wear the full goddamn thing I feel.

I often wear a Barena or Wings+Horns jacket, or a Robert Geller "jacket", with the lapels up. I actually have never seen the Barena Servolo worn in real life without the collar up. The Robert Geller Richard, you can't even get the collar down without a lot of difficulty, and it just looks plain silly. It's really more of a cardigan though, as is the Barena Servolo.
