Trying the polo+tie look - Page 2

post #16 of 28
I think the summer camp x mental hospital x Barbie bracelet really makes the whole look.

dude, it's just silly, and not even because you look like a gargoyl with a barbie all you can drink bracelet in this picture. I'd leave ties to shirts and polos for other occasions.

This thread is some high comedy.

LOL I don't know what clubs you go out to but I've never seen any parents with kids at mine... or walking in the streets when I am going there at 1am, not even here in NYC.

Sorry, it is just a look that does not work. The possible irony of mixing casual and business comes off as just stupid.

If there's a lesson from the picture above, it is that rock stars have it within their purview to dress in ridiculous ways. In their case, it is an acknowledgement of a sort that theirs is a ridiculous position and so they are entitled to express their awareness of that by doing ridiculous things.

But for anyone else, it's just plain ridiculous.

It is no less ridiculous when fake punk rockers who drive Ferraris do it. It is universally ridiculous. I'm fairly tolerant in sartorial matters but...

At any rate, the OP smells of a troll...a Vaclav-esque troll, just not as skillfully done.

Not a good look for look insane in those first 2 shots.

If anyone can pull it off it has to be either a knit or extremely thin tie. Taking a 3.5 blade silk tie and wearing it with a lands end polo = disaster

THe BJA pic is also not a polo...

Wearing a tie with a short sleeved shirt always looks terrible. Multiply that by a factor of three if the short sleeved shirt is a polo.
