Still confused. How are you going to fit them all in there? Wouldn't it be easier to fuck everybody in a limo?

I like Huntsman's cut quite a lot. I actually have a DB from their RTW line.

What do you wear when dressing casually, Claghorn?

post #30890 of 37428

J Crew and Banana Republic. Often an 11 year old baseball cap that looks as if it has been through hell and back

Boat shoes (with no show socks...otherwise, gross) or Adidas casual tennis shoes.

Oh, you're totally on/off, huh?

Ever wear sweaters?

Nope. And yeah, completely on/off. My interest in clothing is very narrow in terms of what I wear (though I always care about color). I do like other sorts of clothing (men's and women's) and follow a number of people on IG for this reason.

No sweaters. Mind blown.

If it's cool enough for a sweater, it's cool enough for a jacket and tie. I guess I could wear sweaters on weekends, and I probably due rarely (3-4 times a year), but generally I'll be in jeans, a polo shirt, and a padded jacket of some sort.

There is a whole panoply of expression in sweaters.

It's not just you. I've found this bias on this forum, where people are singularly obsessed with tailored clothing and then just wear generic civvies any other time. Is that an American thing? @Coxsackie, what is the situation like down under?

 

Re: if it's cool enough for a sweater...  to me, this is like, "If I'm hungry enough for food, I'll have a hamburger." Sometimes you want to try other things! I know that some of you are dying to find reasons to wear suit and tie 24/7, but there is no precedent for that at any point in history, even among your style idols.

Perhaps, but the popularity of NMWA's casual stuff suggests that quite a few forumites let their obsession leak into other aspects of their wardrobe. For me, neckties are the source of all the fun. Take that away, what's the point?

The US is big and it matters greatly where you live and where you grew up.  I’m sure if Claghorn grew up in the northeast he’d probably have quite a few sweaters.  Both climate and custom call for them.

 

Cheers,

Interesting. For me, owning a zillion ties was a side effect!

True, but he travels enough to other climes to merit it.

Your point about custom is well taken, though.

I've only been north of the Mason-Dixon Line once. All my travels have been in Asia (and two several southwest and western states). There is a sweater culture in the social circles I grew up in, namely Patagonia half-zips though.

Actually, is San Francisco north of the MD Line? Maybe twice then, if so.

To look good/appropriate.
