    Hi all,

    I'm new here; I just joined a few minutes ago and need some style advice. I usually wear a solid V-neck sweater on top of a dress shirt and tie, with chinos and tassled loafers with bright socks. My question is this: would it be fine (look good, I guess) to wear the V-neck sweater, dress shirt, and tie combo with cargo/madras shorts? I'm going for a really preppy look (think New England). If so, I would probably be wearing some eccentric Sperry boat shoes with it. I am 19, by the way. I would love for some of the more experienced members to post, and anyone that is from the New England area.

    Thank you,
    Shane

    This is what people would call a "small question." The answer is sort of - no tie and madras shorts would be better than cargo shorts. It's look for a summer day having fun on or near the water. Strange time of year to be asking the question.

    Swap out the madras & cargos for some nut hugging short chino shorts (>6" inseam) and you will have a winner!
