I might wear a black or aubergine sweater, but I wouldn't wear it with black slacks.

What is the concensus on buttoning the top button with no tie.  Personally I think it just looks off but it seems to be a popular look in the casual side of fashion lately.

On a two or three button jacket? Or just in general (i.e. both).

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

post #25520 of 28506

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.

post #25526 of 28506
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

post #25527 of 28506

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

 

post #25528 of 28506
^ 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 #25529 of 28506

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

post #25530 of 28506

Thanks, thought so!
