    +1 on the Men's Wearhouse, especially their alterations tailor. Dear god are they inept. I also partially blame them for the fact that, until recently, I didn't know my proper jacket size.

    I haven't committed too many MC crimes, outside of owning a pair of very clunky dress shoes (thankfully a square-toe has never (dis)graced my foot) or owning some very billowy shirts (I used to believe that people purposefully had their shirts billow out slightly over the belt). I am guilty of forcing skinny jeans into a lot of fits where they don't work (clunky footwear).

    I didn't know my actual size for jackets until a little before I joined SF. I was shopping with a friend and tried on a 38 M65 by Boss which happened to fit perfectly (I had assumed I was mostly an L prior). Luckily I had only one SC anyway, which I had worn only once (I think it was a 42 at least!).

    Cary Elwes-esque coif.
    No no no, this thread is about fashion crimes, not things that are awesome.

    I mean, what else are you supposed to wear as office casual?

    That's what I'm saying. Or with a casual sportcoat, or under a sweater (so the collar doesn't flop out). There are a lot of uses for a button down.

    They must be forced to take them off in public and apologized in public for crime against sartorial humanity.

    Yes I couldnt' agree more. The only time they don't wear socks in sandals is when they are at the beach and insist on being completely naked. This is not against the law in Denmark...but just because it isn't illegal, doesn't make it a good idea [​IMG]

    Wore a knit tie once and then only briefly. I did not want to further the crime by wearing very long.

    Button down collars a crime? Say it ain't so! I love my OCBDs! They're not for all occasions, but they definitely have their place.

    On the button down collars, for clarity, I meant all occasions, all the time. Thought they looked better. I still have them and wear them. Did not mean that I tossed them all out.

    Ah, yes. I can see where this could be problematic. As much as I love them for casual wear, it's remarkable how cringe-worthy they become when I see people wear them in the wrong context.

    Worst crimes in mens fashion I have seen, are t-shirts under sport jackets (collar grime guaranteed)
    and those hideous platform shoes of the late 1970's. 1970's polyester & nylon-anything, and giant lapels a la Austin Powers.

    I believe there is a book entitled "The 1970s - the decade that taste forgot" How right!

    I try to be law abiding at all times. White sox with jacket and tie is high treason - no sox with the same outfit should carry the death penalty.
