so trueThis is not a knock, but most people on this forum look like the guy on the right. If that's your vibe, then you have to work with your vibe. In that case, you might look better in a conservative suit and tie. Jeffery here (the guy on the left) often wears suits without ties. He has a certain look and vibe about him that allows him to pull things off. In this photo, he's wearing a black suit with a black shirt and no tie (three levels of verboten on StyleForum). Yet, he looks great. Arguably better than the guy on the right, and not just because the guy on the right is wearing a white t-shirt underneath his button-up.
Sometimes I think the rules here can be so stifling and conservative, they push everyone into looking like the guy on the right when there are other possibilities for men.

that whole Biz Caj look reminds me of the guy on the right. It’s not a good look.
about 10-15 years ago when Biz Caj was becoming more common in NYC I embraced the whole sports coat or gold button blazer and trousers with loafers look. I grew to strongly dislike it as it seemed lazy and uninspired and reeked of a middle management drone uniform.
the whole idea of “I don’t have to wear a tie, so now I am going to dress like I am a manager at a vhs rental store” is depressing. And nobody will ever convince me that denim is more comfortable than wool trousers. Denim is thick and heavy, and while easy to maintain is far less comfortable than a proper wool pair of trousers.
