    Clothes.

    My wang was meant to dangle freely, a thick and beautiful flower in the crisp autumn breeze, unencumbered by the trappings of pants and false modesty.

    Online MTM suits are not SF approved if you ask me. Most people chose to ignore the abomination that is the Indochino thread. Thick as Thieves is SF approved, but that's for SW&D and mainly because of the construction imo. As far as MT goes, I don't care if it's SF approved or not, but I'd argue it is for smalltimers. All my shirts are MT and it's a great deal if you ask me.

    TaT is SF approved? News to me. I've seldom seen a fit pic from TaT that wasn't met with a chorus of disapproval and snark.

    Perhaps SW&D plays a different ballgame, but MC has roundly rejected TaT.

    Unfortunately, that doesn't stop the chorus of "TaT" every time a new member asks for recommendations. I think it's more of a SW&D-inspired fit.

    I'm sure that there have been similar threads before, but why not do another? And yes, "SF Approved" is a loaded term.

    I'll start:

    "Loud" suiting fabric (gun club check, prince of wales, tartan, etc.)
    Anything double breasted
    Paisley ties
    Mabitexes
    Chisel toe shoes
    Navy blue shoes


    So you are obese (can't do Mabitex) and unimaginative when it comes to dressing (avoid "Loud" patterns and Paisley ties)? [​IMG]

    Fun socks.....though I'm no longer sure these are SF embraced. As a sidebar Pocketsquareguy really does a great job in this regard.

    Tan shoes in a business setting, I love these for casual but think they're too much for 'serious business'.

    Bracelets, you a-holes finally talked me out of bracelets and now everyone is wearing them [​IMG]

    Yes totally!

    PTBs as well (actually any blunt nosed Galoshnikov)

    suiting/cloth heavier than 9oz.
    anything with significant fire engine red color content
    Lime green or red pants.
    spalla comica (sp?)
