    Wingtips with the U shaped brouging instead of the W shape (what are they called?).

    I'm moving away from chiseled lasts and I think the forum's fascination with overly beveled waists and high, angled heels is rather feminine, if not downright ugly.

    I agree with this. I don't even like Oxfords (or Bals, or whatever). I think shoes should be substantial, welted bluchers.

    While I am at it, I believe there is nothing wrong with a button down collar with a suit; or loafers with a suit. These are two "SF Disapproved" things I do all the time.

    Film Noir Buff

    I probably agree with TaT not being SF approved, now that I think of it.


    I forgot two items [​IMG]

    Shell cordovan shoes. Only once or twice I've seen shell cordovan shoes look nice. Most of the time they look plasticky.

    Suspenders (especially when they're called braces). Contrived. Looks fine with a tuxedo, that's it.

    Co-sign on the "braces". If you're American, they're suspenders.

    Pants that are too damned short - especially on suits. It looks ridiculous.

    Tie clips. They aren't necessarily awful, but I have never seen someone wearing one who would not look better by removing the tie clip.

    Ultra-low-rise pants. The Britney Spears cut doesn't look good on Britney Spears, and it is downright weird on a man.

    Film Noir Buff. Go to "The Wardrobe" and click on "When Bespoke Dreams Go Wrong," or whatever it is called.

    Only go if you have a strong constitution. You, me and Spoo are regulars in that thread, and it is very ugly. The guys over there are douchebags of the highest order.

    You have been warned.

    Pleated pants
    Bow ties
    Most moc toe loafers
    Tassles on anything
    Suspenders (although traditionalists would crucify me for this one)


    Who approved pleated pants and tassles? Is this the 80's?
