The only person who could make those shoes work with his work attire is Ronald McDonald.

I like how the people who are most likely to dress with their fellow men's forum members in mind and not, you know, the people they interact with in the real world, can't event win contests on the forum.

It's funny, but ultimately tragic.

Not winning contests on an internet forum is tragic indeed

Considering the amount of time spent on it, and what it says about how they regard their lives, it must profit you to disagree.
post #142 of 196

I don't bother with thinking about how other people live their lives, much less how they dress.

A great approach for a clothing accessories seller!
post #144 of 196

I sell accessories

 

But please, do go ahead and voice your opinion.

Perhaps not for all, admittedly, but from your posts, I think you think clearly enough about what you do that it cannot be entirely down to tradition.

Anyway, turtlenecks...

warning: ongoing digression

What we call "free will" can be found in the way we subjectivize the objective historical conditions which determine the space of possibles we have access to. Or to put it more simply: I agree with you.

I'm not sure we should all aspire to casual, just like I'm not sure we should all aspire to dress like Cary Grant. Certainly if we choose to pursue casual, a sport coat is probably not the right direction. On the other hand, Tira won the CM does SWD challenge wearing a sport coat.

When I wrote "casual vibe," I was referring to the desirability to project a dégagé, relaxed feeling rather than an uptight one, which is nearly always beneficial whether in black tie or leading a board meeting. This can be done using everything from fabric choices to accessories.

Of course, one should always dress for the occasion. If it's a casual occasion, you will usually look socially inept in tailored clothes.
