    I've seen this mentioned before but I don't believe most of us follow this convention. Sulinski's shorts look different from mine (or maybe I'm just backward from the reflection) but just on this page Irate, Stitchy, and Holdfast all have the belt lying opposite of the shirt and pant/short placket. I do this as well. Doesn't the direction in which one does his belt have more to do with dominant handedness? Do you mean how the belt lays across the waist or the actual direction of the buckle? Seems I've heard both and now I'm confused... thoughts?

    No, it's about latent perversion. You can't help yourself.

    i never though about it, and do not plan to. i simply put it on the way that comes naturally. this goes in the category of beyond the pale for me of what is worth thinking about.

    Exactly. Same for the three page conversation on how to roll up your shirt.

    I so happen to put my belt on the 'right' way, if there is such a thing.

    Stitch, well done on the weight loss!
    The outfit too looks very good.
    Would love to see the same composition with less elongated shoes though!
    To my eyes they look a bit off balance.

    Thanks!!

    A nice thought, though incorrect. Especially with the tapered pents.

    I think we had at least a two-pager convo in the recent past about the belt thing as well. Though, the belt thing doesn't seem as much like "convention vs. defying convention" as it does just something that a know-nothing sales associate made up to give the impression that he knows something about mens style. All that to say, there is no rule and never really has been.
