    That can be a cool minimalist look, but everything has to fit really well. Better have some good shoes too.

    yea, on the right guy, with the right shirt/suit/tie/shoes, it's an amazingly killer look. on everyone else (99% of guys) it looks funereal/waiteresque

    Are you on a mission from God?
    [ ] Yes
    [ ] No

    If you checked off yes, then proceed. Don't forget your sunglasses. If you checked off no, can you bring me the wine list?

    gotta have the right physique, great head of hair, and a badass face to match it.

    If you are not slim then it will not work. Also, if the suit is cheap and dodgy in shape, like some high-schooler trying to be "GQ", then sartorial unhipness ensues, resulting in desperate clubwear for desperate people.

    any thoughts?

    I've seen lots of guys of all different shapes, sizes and demeanors pull it off but that does not mean anyone can do it. We don't know what you look like or exactly what you are going to wear so you won't get too much specific advice. Just be very confident you look and feel good in it because if you don't, if you have any second thoughts, everyone will be able to tell.

    If thin means "skinny," as in my case, stay away.

    It depends on the suit. A black Yohji Yamamoto suit never looks like a waiter/funeral director.

    A sort of pun on my part--suspect, and ultimately dodging in and out of a proper fit.

    Most overrated movie ever... The look, no matter how it's worn, always makes me think the guy's gonna plunge his hand into my chest. Whoa. [​IMG]
