How much of a sin is this: Wearing a short sleeve shirt (such as a polo) with a sportcoat? I've never done it but I am considering it. I work in a business casual environment and its getting cooler. I usually wear a cardigan outdoors take my jacket/sweater off indoors.

I am tired of wearing cardigans all the time.

This was discussed on here just a few days ago. No approved by the SF elite but some on here, me included, believe it can be made to work. Youbhave to have a decent polo such as lacoste, not the one you got at the company picnic, one button unfastened, flat lying collar, decent colour that is not washed out. Long sleeves in the winter.

No, no, and no. I consider myself to be more 'liberal' than most of the iGents here, yet even I think its a bad idea...

I think if you and the jacket are slim enough and the shirt is equally well fitting and you are wearing some good trousers or jeans it can be done. It will clash to some people, but if fit is spot on the look will come off well. To other people, they will just see you in a sport jacket and say "wow where you going to a wedding?"

Yea because the lacoste symbol is AWESOME. Please post a picture wearing a lacoste polo shirt (preferably in a loud bright color) with a sport coat. Bet it would look lovely.

Nah, I like the quality of lacoste shirts but don't care about the symbol and would quite happily cut them off if I thought I could do it without messing up the shirts. Anyway you can't see the croc when you're wearing the jacket. White or one of the many shades of blue that they do would look OK IMO under a blazer with jeans ... I dunno, like I've said on here before I just think open collar shirts sans tie looks sloppy and while I don't like the IT techie look for business casual (polo and pleated dockers) I think I dislike the 'uniform of the unimaginative' (OCBD and dockers) even more.

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.
