^^^ I may be wrong, but I think jungleroller is referring to the top button of a shirt being buttoned sans tie.

post #25517 of 30169

Hahahha. Yes.

 

For that I think the distinction is casual vs formal, right?

Top button of dress shirts. I see a lot of Hipster guys wearing them with flannels etc. and some Polos but I'm starting to see it with Casual Business too with Sport Coats.  David Lynch would wear it, but he's a bad ass in his own right so I guess I'm wondering in general how is it looked upon?

Horrible look.

 

It goes back at least as far as Andy Warhol.  It was, and perhaps in some quarters still is, a purposeful transgression of a cultural norm, a kind of sartorial middle finger to the establishment.

 

As this is the “classic menswear” forum, I feel comfortable simply saying “don’t.”

 

Cheers,

I won't.  I don't like it at all.  It's nails on a chalk board to me, but I wasn't sure if it was just me.  Casually, I think it has a place.  I still don't like it but it's becoming a thing.

Of the two, the thin stripes. Sorry for ringing in late.

Anyone have any opinion on what might be causing this damage to my jacket?  This is on the inside of the coat on the right side, behind the buttons.

Thinking of getting an overcoat in the same style but different fabric than this, but was a bit put off by the center sleeve seam (there's an inner one as well so not sure what the function is other than decorative). Anything you've seen before? Thanks

This is most probably a no, but does this flannel shirt match with the sport coat? Will be wearing with tan chinos.

 

post #25525 of 30169
^ you answered your own question. Definately a no. Also, that looks quite suity as a SC. I'd go with a blue non BD dress shirt.
post #25526 of 30169

I"ll echo that the above combo doesn't work.  But I'd wear a BD because of the chinos.

post #25527 of 30169

Thanks, thought so!

post #25528 of 30169
I just bought a suit from Suitsupply (it's this one if anyone is curious) and was wondering if I could get some feedback on whether I should bother with getting my tailor to do anything to the body at all.







Obviously, I'll get the sleeves and pants shortened; but do you think the back needs cleaning up/slimmed or would you not bother?

Thanks

Can I wear a Navy Blazer with blue jeans? Will post pick of the blazer when it arrives.

 

*it is my first blazer. I want to wear the shit out of it.

post #25530 of 30169

^^ I often wear jeans with odd jackets....but not with a navy blazer.  It's done, I just personally don't love the blue on blue and a proper navy blazer is just below a suit in terms of formality (more at home with wool pants, tie, etc).  unless you are talking about a blue odd jacket, with non metal buttons then I guess I'd have to see the jacket and jeans together to judge.
