In the summer, when I'm not likely to wear a jacket, I'll switch to Camel nonfiltered because the smaller pack fits better in my jeans. People get a kick out of it when I tell them exactly why I'm killing my lungs.

All my active-rotation business shoes live at the office in a file cabinet, except for one strategic pair I keep at home for emergency use. That way, my shoes don't absorb the wear and tear of driving (I've got driving shoes for that. ) and I keep them out of the weather. Hopefully nobody will ever break into my file cabinet. There's about $4k worth of shoes in there. Montecristo

I think probably the most silly thing about me and style is that I think about what I will wear before just about anything else.  So when I get asked to give a speech or go to an important meeting, I don't think "What am I going to say?" or "Who is going to be there?", I think "Hmmm, I wonder if the new green suit would be too much?". I have a lot of sympathy with the shoulder-bag strap problem that started this thread - strap on one shoulder kills the suit and is a sad look.  I usually only carry a shoulder bag when dressed down.  One solution is to wear the strap diagonally across the body - not elegant but preserves the line of a jacket somewhat better. Also better if you need to walk some distance. I think about bags a fair bit, being something of a bag-tragic. The tragedy is that although I keep buying new bags, the only one that really works for me is the one I have had for probably seven years.  So I have a pile of useless bags.  THE bag is leather, in an unusual burgundy colour, briefcase style, open topped (although it can be zippered shut) with a handle that can be stowed, in which case it can be carried portfolio style, and a strap that can be pressed into service when you want to go hands-free (like when getting food at a conference buffet).

Tucking my shirt into my underwear before pulling on my trousers (to prevent the shirt from "pulling" too much). My wife thinks it is silly

I'm obsessed with how my pant leg falls on my shoe. I have certain shoes that I will only wear with certain pants. Usually when I buy a new pair of shoes, I need at least two new pairs of pants that go perfectly with it. I work each outfit from the shoes up.

I used to be that way, but I start to go nuts with perfection, and so I stopped caring...(ok, maybe I still care, but not as much) Jon.

I think your wife is correct. Shirts tucked into underwear is... not good. My personal quirk: I like having my belt show (I love belts) and have resorted (when wearing a shirt) to the dreaded half tuck. That, or I'll wear shirts with real short tails. I am not slim enough (youj have to be super good looking *and* very, very good looking (Zoolander style) and super skinny to pull off a shirt tucked into jeans)], so I'm stuck. Lately, I've been wearing shorted length t-shirts, or a casual jacket over a t-shirt, just so that my belt shows.

It does help prevent your shirt from moving out of your waistband too much. If I have it just under my waistband, moving your arms, sitting, etc causes the shirt to pull out too much.

some might say that could be a sign of a shirt that doesn't fit terribly well. might have better luck with smaller arm-holes, but i'm not one of the experts here.
