For some reason I keep seeing men with their functional buttonholes on their suit jackets unbuttoned. Sometimes its just one, as an obvious nod to the fact that they have functional buttonholes. Other times its all four, which I still cant figure out. Id be interested to know if I am in the minority in thinking this is tacky, like "hey, look at me, I have functional buttonholes, arent I better than you" . So, in the same vein, here are my top 3 clothing pet peeves: 1. Undoing functional buttonholes for show. 2. Not using collar stays - weve all seen it. Ive seen guys in $3000.00 suits who look absurd because they wont slide a 2 cent piece of plastic in their collars. 3. wrong color belt with shoes. I mean, seriously, you dont have to be beau brummel to realize that if you wear black shoes, put on a black belt. Im sure I can add to this list, but I would be interested in knowing some other member's pet peeves.
