Interviewing some c-level execs at a large org for research and figured "why not?"

But this is also exactly what I'd wear to a funeral. Though perhaps sans square.

No, I would not say so. The jacket is in Harrison's Moonbeam, which is wool and angora. It's very soft, almost cashmere-like. I don't think it would be suitable for trousers.

Still cloudy and cool but had to stay conventional today. I should have pulled my jacket down a little, collar gap is usually not there. :brick:

What kind of pants are those?  They look too casual for a tailored coat.

:inlove: I dig all of this.  I tried tucking my sweater in once.  It didn't go well.  I may try again.

You might enjoy spending a few hours scrolling through all the pictures on this website and seeing the freedoms that all men enjoyed before the internet was invented and all the silly "rules" were made up.......

...hopefully, someday soon, all the silly made-up "rules" will disappear forever.  

We can all do our share by ignoring all the silly made-up "rules" and ignoring all the bizarre comments from people who (for some unknown reason) actually imagine that all the silly made-up "rules" are real "rules".

post #37094 of 45157

Something I have been thinking on as I begin a biography of Beau Brummell and read Roycru's comments... It seems to me that there are two kinds of ways of propagating rules, unspoken and enumerated. Unspoken rules are those which dominate those who are, for lack of a better term, in the know. Some understand that wearing a tuxedo to a cocktail party is gauche almost as a matter of instinct. Others have to be told, often through confusing and foolish dress codes written on invitation cards. For those who were born into a certain social strata the rules weren't rules at all. They were simply known and accepted norms of behavior. Kind of like how guitarists would never "touch another man's axe" without permission. These accepted norms of behavior only became rules when those not in the know had to be instructed on them during the great democratization process that engulfed the U.S. from the 1870s to the 1950s. By this I don't mean to belittle the so called rules. Indeed, I imagine few of us were brought up in the privileged lifestyle that I reference here. I know I wasn't. However, as one delves deeper and deeper into the sartorial history of the western man, as he understands it's idiosyncrasies more and more, and as he begins to obtain a nuanced understanding of what he is dealing with, he begins to understand that there really are no rules. Just accepted norms of behavior. And when he understands this he is fully equipped to bend and adapt those norms to his needs.
