because igents making up rules on the internet based on their preferences is ridiculous.I don't get the anti-rules sentiment. Everyone has style/clothing ideas that they believe with enough conviction that they could functionally be called a rule. I think everyone here would agree that wearing Crocs with a suit is an awful look and should never be done.
There's too much arguing about whether rules exist (a semantic debate, they functionally do) and who has the authority to make the rules, and not enough discussion about what the rules actually say and what concepts inform them.
Seems like folks are butthurt someone told them the way they've been dressing isn't ideal and that they've invested too much money (and their personal style identity) in oxfords over loafers and derbies.
it’s one thing to say “generally speaking cotton chinos and black cap toe oxfords might not be a good look..”
it’s another thing to say that the ONLY use for Oxford style shoes that is acceptable according to THE RULES is while wearing a suit and tie.
pretty arrogant of somebody to think they get to just make up these type of rules (especially when they are deal wrong about how it looks)
I think we can all agree that the Oxford is clearly the better choice in these photos:
