    That's just epic sprezz. Look at the tie tucked under shirt awesomeness. It is a dick move really calling your friend out like that and posting the album - especially when you know people like me will go through them pikchurs chegging out them weemunz.

    Well it was certainly an adventure. Only wedding I've ever been to where the evening banquet was held at a petrol station.

    Skinny jeans which are loose and baggy at the crotch.

    Plasticky, square toed, wide, synthetic leather shoes.

    Shiny skinny suits.

    Trousers where the hem sits 3 inches up the leg.

    Black shirt, black jacket, white tie.

    Undoing your black tie when in a tuxedo and rocking the party like that + photos.

    Ill-fitting white tie.

    Women's cheap brogues with heels.

    Grown men who dress like children.

    Wearing tweed jackets which are too short for you with a bow tie, rolled up jeans, and suede shoes, with a short back and sides and thick framed glasses which you don't need because your prescription is -0.25.

    Football (i.e. soccer shirts) at any time unless you are actually playing.

    Big fat Nike basketball shoes with disgusting shiny trousers a la Justin Beiber.

    'Hoodies' outside of a gym or during training.

    Vans + Converse All Stars. All of them. Every single one.

    The absence of Porsche/Puma driving shoes on the shelves of my local shoe store [​IMG]

    'Ironic' T shirts which are technically not ironic at all, just naff. (Snorgtees)

    Transplanting of internet humour onto clothes IRL.

    Badges on clothes.

    Wearing of army surplus, especially current issue camouflage, in an urban context.

    Metal T-shirts.

    I could go on.

    Football jerseys: Whats wrong with supporting your team when they are playing a game. Even if its a team I absolutely hate, I respect the fans that wear the gear the game day to show their support.

    Hoodies: Sometimes this is the most comfortable option late at night or when you are with your friends hanging out in the cold.

    Vans+Converse All Stars: Only a mistake in certain situations

    The absence of Porsche/Puma driving shoes: Puma does not make Porsche driving shoes, no wonder you are ticked off. Puma makes the Ferrari shoes and Adidas makes the Porsche shoes.

    A pet peeve of mine is when people wear those ferrari puma shoes, shirt, jacket, hat and etc... and they don't own a ferrari.

    Quite right about the Adidas/Porsche shoes. For some reason I associated the sleek shape with Puma. I suspect people wear the Ferrari gear merely because of the branding. I've never liked it. Although I can't hold against anybody the fact that they don't own a Ferrari. I thought the Porsche/Adidas driving shoes were fantastic design wise and functionally.

    I don't consider somebody who wears a team shirt worthy of 'respect' - that's a bit much. I consider it vulgar. It smacks too much of some kind of forced commercialised tribalism and is often a licence for boorishness.

    I prefer retro sweatshirts because they make you look bigger after a weights session. Obviously.

    Can get behind everything you stated apart from this .............. its not forced commercialised tribalism , its purely a sense of belonging. Some of our clubs have been there well over a century and something to be genuinely proud of. Not all of us are boorish.

    I am pretty much peeved by anything to do with sports. I don't understand all of the hype and money and media attention. They are games, and people get way to riled up over them. It is one thing to enjoy them, but come on, gym class is over, if you want "belonging" join the military.

    Wearing tweed jackets which are too short for you with a bow tie, rolled up jeans, and suede shoes, with a short back and sides and thick framed glasses which you don't need because your prescription is -0.25.


    Wearing a jacket that is too short for you is a mistake regardless of the rest of the ensamble. I might also agree with the hipster eyewear/hairdoo, both together and separately. The rest I don't get.

    • Light tie on dark shirt.
    • Black suit, black shirt, black tie. ClichÃ[​IMG]. (More generally, the monochrome look.)
    • Cheap, informal, rubber-soled shoes with formalwear.
    • White silk bow tie and full-back 5-6 button vest worn with a tailcoat. White tie means more than just wearing a white tie.
    • Cummerbund with white tie
    • Cheap, pleated wing collar tuxedo shirts.
    • Turn-down collar with white tie.
    • Wing collar with shawl lapels.
    • Wearing anything other than a black bow tie with black tie.

    Undoing your black tie when in a tuxedo and rocking the party like that + photos.

    There comes a point where practicality trumps style. That point is usually around 2 1/2 hours into a wedding reception, when the cake's been cut, everybody's eyes are dry again, and the dance floor is full. I'd rather take off the jacket and tie than saturate them with sweat. These things were designed for the waltz and foxtrot.

    Agreed. I refer to those bastards who do it within like 10 minutes of entering. Nice bullet points. We expect much from your second post.

    When I said "black tie" I meant "the black tie dress code". Kind of confusing, huh.

    As you might be able to tell I work in a profession where I wear a lot of formal wear, and most men are either clueless or don't give a crap. (People are completely awed that I can tie a bow tie. I always tell them it's not hard, I can do it in 30 seconds without a mirror, and it only takes about 10 minutes to learn.) It's sad because, paraphrasing Jim Carroll, "the real thing is not only to do what you're doing totally great, but to look totally great while you're doing it."

    I don't have very much money, have very cheap formal wear (looking forward to upgrading when I have the cash flow!) but I still look better than most because I actually make an effort. This leads be to what I believe is, by far, the #1 most common style mistake: Wearing clothes that don't fit correctly.

    Yes it was, rather remote as well. BTW the bride's father is a multi-millionaire, owns a castor factory in Guangzhou.
