It's been done, and the entries were thoroughly unimpressive. It was a little bit of time ago, so it might be time for a retry.

I'd say so.

Has there been a formalwear challenge?
post #131 of 196
Once again, like every other contest or thread in this subforum, the people who look the best who aren't wearing ties also aren't wearing tailored sportcoats. If I could change one thing about CM, it's that people would stop using 1963 standards for casual clothing.

Want to wear a tailored sportsjacket? Fine, but wear creased pants and leather-sole shoes. And don't pretend that anyone will perceive what you're wearing as casual, ever.

If you want to be seen as casual, don't wear a traditional sports jacket. Or invent a time machine.

I know NOBD pulls it off (but doesn't in this thread, since his jacket isn't very traditional), but he's been the exception proving the rule for years.

I'll only add that I'd like to see everyone aspire to a casual vibe in what they wear, but in wearing tailored clothing, you do this in subtle ways. The MC Casual thread has been a travesty, from start to finish.

More absurdity was never seen in one place at one time.

He's entirely right, wearing a sportcoat is not associated with a casual look, the general perception will be that you are "dressed up". I can't believe it is a controversial statement.

So you already invented the time machine? I didn't know, congrats.
