    Well, for that matter the excellent fit of the suit and natural shoulders are a little swishy, for those of us in the know. [​IMG]

    Yes, OTR is the only way to go. MTM or Bespoke is very gay, thinking way too much about looking sharp, professional, astutue, well groomed can be seen as gay in the hills of Kentucky or a NasCar race.

    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.

    Goddamnit, what do I need to do to get through to you people? This thread is not about POLITICAL CONSERVATISM. This is about Conservative Business Dress, which is bipartisan and apolitical. The lapel cannot be adorned. That is NOT CONSERVATIVE.

    I disagree a small donkey pin or an elephant pin is preferred with an American Flag you must show Pride in our Land.

    or if you are an independent

    That would be revealing some small aspect of your personality, which is absolutely forbidden in conservative business dress.

    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.

    I've seen Donald Trump wear a Pink Tie, I believe he is hiding something.
