    i wear ties for no reason all the time. if a non-logger can wear redwings, why cant i wear a tie? anyhow, never should you wear one with an untucked shirt, and the material is a big deal, meaning no silk or anything shiny. i love the hillside ties and i have a few vintage knits that i like also. if youve got balls and confidence it is possible to pull off that club monaco ss button down with a tie thing but be forewarned, gone wrong it will be an epic failure. i like white oxford shirts (theyre one of my favorites) with a simple jacket like a harrington because for one: the v-neck sweater is what everyone wears casually with a tie, and two: it is WAY easier to pull it off with a jacket/sweater. done right, you can use the jacket to emphasize the casualness of the look. that being said, i think a lot of your ability to pull this off is based on your character and personality

    noob here (obviously) but is it really dat serious. wear it how u wanna wear it. me, i wear ties with button down shirts NOT tucked in, top button not buttoned, sleeves rolled up, with fitted jeans, and chucks. sometimes a wear a button down sweater vest with it and i get compliments all the time. my advice would be to make the look your own. the only deciding factor is that you just be confident with it. if u wear it and realize u don't like it, just change it next time u wear it. but again, i'm just a noob.

    my friend, if this is not a serious matter to you, then you have stumbled across the wrong forum

    if you live in the pages of a gq magazine it looks solid. otherwise, i rarely ever see it look good.

    The guy with the red sweater doesn't look good at all. Looks like a church christmas party.

    Yes. Trying to replicate this makes you look like a teenager.

    It's the startched white shirt and shiny tie combo. It just looks out of place with jeans. I agree with the church comment, it's mormonesque.

    i have a pretty good feeling that at least one person here who says "it cant be done" owns some type of work-looking boots but in fact actually performs no work, and for some reason thats ok. but not a tie in a non-corporate setting. it might not be easy to do, but it can be done

    i think thats one of the main reasons i feel like i can as well. i live in houston where "dressed up" is an ed hardy tee and true religions. i can do whatever the fuck i want and nobody will know the difference anyway

    No need to venture into the theoretical here; the gut says it looks stupid. Boots usually don't.
