Have been chasing after designers' items, such as Rick Owens, Julius, CCP, etc, for years. Recently, in pursuing to make a "better" besope suits (used to be a customer of cheap bespoke or better classified as half MTO/bespoke), I spent 2 months reading intentively in the Classic forum here. Learnt a great deal of knowledge in classic wear here. Suddenly feel an urge to transform to dress in a more "grown up" way. (no offense to designers' items, just a personal feel that I am too old for RO look, etc). Thanks guys for the fruitful discussion here. My questions: i) I want to know your preference on the setting below. Reason is that all of them are resonably common in my workplace. But I also read someone mentioned in this forum (or AAAC I can't recall) that jacket should always come with tie and vice versa. So, with the aim of dressing just one level better than the crowd, I wanna get some insight on the "proper" way of dressing: A) Suit (navy, gray, etc) and tieless B) Casual suit (casual in frabic, or lighter in color, e.g. ligh gray and Khaki) and tieless C) odd jacket and tieless D) jacketless with tie P.S. I think black suit should always come with tie. So, this is out of question. Aesthetically, I can accept A to C, but not D. Your inputs please. ii) When you are wearing a suit or odd jacket, do you always close the top button (assume 2 buttons) when you walk/ stand? iii) One more question - do you consider no-break or slight break more suitable for business suit or casual look? thanks!
