And of course we can debate our position on each of them.
Be nice to have a list of do's and donts in general terms for the lost and learning such as myself.
(Made a search, couldn't find any post on "rule of thumb" so decided to start one if one already exist please point in the right direction.
Anyhow if not,
Let me start the ball rolling:
1/ don't wear a strip shirt with a strip suit,
Unless the stripes are of obvious different gauges, same works for checks
2/ two pattens at most, you can do more but your pushing it
3/ always leave the last button on a suit or vest unbuttoned, double breasted being the only exception
4/ At least one inch of sleeve should show under the end of your suit
5/ shoes always in trees, 15 min max for "resting" if you choose to, after use
6/ belt and shoes must match somehow
7/ Browns and blues work together
8/ no brown in town, I disagree as my countries all town.
9/ suits look bare without a pocket square
10/ shell cordovan is an informal leather, I disagree with this as well. Historically it was but no longer
12/ you can leave a surgeons cuff one button unbuttoned if you tend to associate often with people who can't afford a proper suit, you will be seen as a bragger tho so tread lightly
I'm sure you guys have a ton more to add.. Would love to read them.
