Shetland crewneck with tweed jacket, ocbd, and grey wool trousers (or other). Is there an easier combination? There are so many color options too with Shetlands, and they are very easy to wear.

My vote has to be for the button up cardigan, but one with buttons all the way to the neck (top and bottom zippers would also be acceptable). Knits like this have so much versatility -- they can be worn with or without a tie, and you can choose how much tie to show. The ability to unbutton/unzip from the bottom I find helps greatly when wearing higher waisted trousers.

This seems to need a v-neck option and a cardigan option (buttons; separate to what I think of a vest, being a pullover).

Crew for me. I'm especially fond of Shetlands. But I also wear turtle.

Is there a way to see who voted which way? On Style Forum it's not what the majority wears ... it's about how a select few elect to dress.. I recall a post (back at ye old forum) when we were choosing between the Derby and the Oxford. More people chose the Oxford ... but the more sophisticated dressers elected the Derby. So there you have it.

I agree with this. Both should be options. My favorite knit to wear under a sport coat is a cardigan (v-neck with or without sleeves. I chose vest as it is most similar to a cardigan, but I greatly prefer the cardigan to a pull over vest.

There is only one correct answer for the poll, and that is the turtleneck. The polo would win if it were cashmere or merino, but as that is not specified and it's also up against the incomparable turtleneck, it must play second fiddle.

Perhaps those sophisticated dressers were approaching brain death, since the oxford is by far the better choice. Regardless, both sides are wrong - it is the boot which is superior.

As I was long ago one of the "select few" ... I'll take my word for it. ;-)

That said, I do like one who is confident in his style. Nice to meet you.

Likewise. We should all be confident in our styles; we're the ones who have to wear the clothes we choose, after all.

I don't think that poll offered us the option of the boot. That might have influenced my decision. My primary residence is a country house and I wear boots more than 50% of the time ... the lacing being in the "Derby" style, naturally. ;-)

Style Forum helps men to be more confident in their style. Although it's no longer the place it used to be ... the place I really enjoyed ... it's doing its job and that is what's important. I won't fault it for having changed.

Many of the older members who used to post here are now on Twitter and Instagram. Those sites don't lend themselves very well to long-form discussions, but they can be a way to stay in touch with people. Happy to DM you a list of people's Twitter handles if you're on Twitter (not trying to be secretive, but don't know if it's polite to post other people's handles on a public forum). Vox, RJ, Cantabrigan, Dopey, PhatGuido, AY, and others are on Twitter.

Thank you dieworkwear, I would appreciate that. I have, on occasion, stayed in touch with RJ via e-mail.. While there were many people I liked, his wit bowled me over. I met him on a short trip to Paris and we visited Hilditch & Key as well as Charvet. I got one of those glorious medieval tapestry themed cashmere scarves thanks to his sartorial sleuthing.

I know Twitter ... but this may mean I'll have to join. I'll have to look into Instagram.
