    I agree - that outfit might be OK if you are sauntering down a catwalk in Milan but it is completely UNACCEPTABLE for a conservative business environment.
    Yeah? And where do you work? I wore that to work today, and I fit right in. Because it was well chosen and conservative. I'm trying to teach something here. If you don't have something constructive to add, start your own thread about mincing male model attire. I'm sure you're a f*ck*ng expert.

    That tie has Pink in it doesn't it?

    Pink = gay [​IMG]

    That is an aberration of conservative business dress.

    Getting past denial is the first step to recovery of true conservative business dress.

    Manton, I can't believe no one has called you on the carpet for that outrageous spread collar. Everyone knows that the POINT collar is the ONLY acceptable collar for conservative business dress. A spread collar is a sure sign of a fruity limey wannabe. You might as well be swishing around in a suit with waist suppression.

    And God help you if you have spiked hair.

    If you wore that metrosexual crap to MY office, you would immediately be pegged as a fag and mocked mercilessly.

    So not only can you not SEE, you can't even READ. "[N]ot too dashingly open, not too mafia-closed." Spread collars and point collars are both NOT CONSERVATIVE. The collar should be medium, in the middle, centrist, moderate, not too much of one, not too much of the other. Whoever told you that a point is conservative is full of $hit. Mob guys and mob poet laureates like Scorcese wear the point. Are they conservative? I DON'T THINK SO.

    If you can't hold your liquor, don't blame me. This, from a guy who wears black suede shoes. You don't have a single conservative thing in your whole closet.

    Dimples are NOT CONSERVATIVE, you Philistine. Dimples = artifice, trying too hard, thinking too much about clothes. Dimples are gay.

    You don't know $hit. Can't you tell flash effect when you see it? That suit is charcoal. Only pimps wear light gray, and pimps are not conservative.

    Only women and girly men should have that kind of waist suppression.

    I hope you are at least eating steak and potatoes tonight, probably some veggie lover.

    How about shoes? They are conspicuously missing from the big picture. No EG 888, JL 8000, C&J 337 or Vass dandy chisel toe gay craps.

    Manton, I know you take all your notes from Molloy, but spread collars are the ANTITHESIS of conservative business dress. Maybe in the big city you like to pair spread collars with your feather boas and fishnets, but my grandpappy didn't wear no spread collar. You can't even buy spread collars at Marshalls. You'd have to waste a bunch of money on a SHIRT to get that kind of nonsense. And that just ain't done.

    So not only can you not SEE, you can't even READ. "[N]ot too dashingly open, not too mafia-closed." Spread collars and point collars are both NOT CONSERVATIVE. The collar should be medium, in the middle, centrist, moderate, not too much of one, not too much of the other. Whoever told you that a point is conservative is full of $hit.

    Exactly the U last is for gays The only acceptable Vass for True Conservative Business Dress (TCBDA approved) are:

    Round, ambigous and no sexual orientation.

    but spread collars are the ANTITHESIS of conservative business dress

    Reading comprehension as good as ever, eh, Doc? If that IS your real name ...

    That is NOT a spread collar. It is a MEDIUM spread collar. Not too open, not too close. NOT TOO ANYTHING. The essense of Conservative Business Dress is understatement, avoiding the extremes. A true point collar is an EXTREME. Extremism in defese of liberty may be no vice, but extremism in dress is NOT CONSERVATIVE.
