    Ive done a few searches but have come to nothing.

    Can anyone give me ideas on what would look good in an upscale lounge. Many of the individuals I will be around will be in college/graduate school.

    If anyone could help me out I would appreciat it. I was thinking between the following

    Coat , dress shirt, trousers
    Blazer, dress shirt, jeans
    Dress shirt , khakis.

    Which of these would be most acceptable or what recommendations of your own would you recomend.

    Anything that doesn't make you look like you 'researched' what to wear.

    Depends how "upscale" it is.

    I was expecting a thread about dinner vs. business vs. lounge suit.

    That's actually not bad.

    But it doesn't matter. It's whatever you can pull off.

    anything to get people away from khakis, a type of pants that should never be worn in any situation involving other beings than your cat. I personally don't change to go out...

    You played golf I guess it's ok then. Not that I really think golf is ok but the last time I "played" I was totally sloshed and trying to do 180s with the carts. This was not well received...Just to be funny I had bought a tight pink polos and some khakis.

    Fuuma, good advice with the list above (must shave, though!). I hear you reg. khakis being too ubiquitous and most people outside SF wear them terribly (ie jeans for the grown-up crowd). But compared to what you posted today, I'd gladly consider dockers+lacoste anytime, anywhere:
    [​IMG] Sweatshirt blazer: Junya Watanabe for CdG Light purple flannel shirt: EpauletXSF Navy “carot shaped” high-waisted pants: Comme des Garçons Homme plus Purplish/burgundy shoes: Pierre Corthay Glasses: Alain Mikli
    Sorry to post this here, but this pic is just too much for me to take today.

    Blue and white striped shirt, brown tie, beige vest and matching flat front trousers. Brown captoes.

    Or perhaps I'm just channeling the spirit of steampunk...

    I'm not looking for a traditional mc look and obviously enjoy playing with shapes and materials more than you guys but you should still follow my advice as I'm not encouraging him to dress like I do. Khakis suck, especially in a club setting, they make you look like a dork.

    I think Fuuma's first post was reasonable. Khakis would be good if you were serving under Montgomery or an extra in Office Space.
