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.
