Oh yeah.. this from a guy who's stockmarket is looking rather listless lately.. That 'pseudo' conservative suit better be warm cause your housing market is melting down!

Reading problems Mike? Remember... you were the one who wore that rather, ehem, flashy accessory in your first outfit.. claiming it 'conservative'.... maybe in an art gallery owner sort of way..

Well, it is black, so it would be appropriate for work.

This is what European reallyreallyreally conservative business attire looks like. Good for torching villages and riding roughshod. Pity all the peasants emigrated to the US. Oh well.

Too many pleats.

Too much waist suppression.

According to some clothing book I read, so much waist suppression is not appropriate in a business setting. If the author posted here, he might be able to confirm.

I agree with his choice not to wear a pocket square. Pocket squares have no place in conservative business environments or environments where pillaging, plundering or riding roughshod may be necessary.

But he has forgotten the most important rule: a jacket should cover one's rear. His is far too short and effeminate.

The shades however are right on time.

Maybe it's just me or my less advanced sense of humor but it seems like the only purpose of this thread is to ridicule a certain style of dress even if Manton's original post was done in a serious manner as I assume he owns that suit. While I actually like the ensemble on the whole I cannot help but to comment that the jacket might be more presentable if it were stored stuffed with paper as I have previously discussed and have been doing so since, as this jacket's shoulders look a bit rumpled to my eye which sort of defeats the purpose of dressing conservatively in a professional business environment.

Anyone who comes near my closet with even one shred of newsprint is going to get his @$$ kicked.

I think you're wrong here bub. See, in a conservative business environment you're supposed to look like you're so busy that you don't give a shit what you're wearing and the rumpled shoulders help advance that look. If your suit is not rumpled anywhere it makes you look like some dandy pantywaste who spends more time crumpling newspaper and putting it in his jacket sleeves than he does wheeling and dealing. Got it?

If you're the bootlicking junior associate, sure. You probably drive yourself to work, too.
