    Who else thinks that wearing a suit without a tie is just wrong.

    It may be the current "fashion", but it shows a definite lack of style.

    The majority of people wear a shirt unbuttoned, and it just falls under the jacket
    Lapels and looks sloppy.

    I guess people have no idea how stupid they really look.

    Your thoughts.

    Seems very English to me. I think a suit without a tie looks better than a tie without a jacket.

    Haha, then don't venture in SW&D, you'd have a heart attack seeing blazer with jeans and suit with t shirts.

    Look, dood, if you don't like it, don't do it, but don't write a post like this; it's unwarranted.

    it's called the Ahmadinejad. I absolutely don't mind it and it can look nice.

    I think it's all about context and occasion. A suit with no tie is significantly more casual but still pretty dressed up and there are occasions that call for that IMHO. And if you wear a pocket square it looks like you HAVE paid attention and less like you don't own a tie to begin with or just forgot it altogether. It's not a favorite look of mine but I do "get it".

    Then of course there are summer suits in linen which I feel don't call for a tie as much, if at all.

    If it makes you feel good then that's all that matters. Fuck what other people think. Go with the flow.

    A linen suit (or any other casual suit for that matter) looks great without a tie. But yes, a tie without a jacket is indeed an aberration. I was thinking about this today because I've seen so many jacketless suits (with a tie) on my commute [​IMG]

    Suit without tie looks ok when shirt has a bit of spread collar and the collar is stiff enough so i stays in place even without a tie. I have lately discovered PRL regent shirts works well for me when without a tie.

    If you're going to go tieless, I think it also helps to wear a patterned shirt. To me, a solid white or blue shirt just makes it look like the wearer forgot his tie. George Clooney and Tom Ford are exempted from this rule.

    I'm wearing a suit without a tie today. But it's a summer-weight unlined tan poplin suit, so it's a little more casual. I don't think I would wear a regular wool suit without a tie, although I will frequently wear a sport jacket with slacks and no tie.

    The offense here is the extra long sleeves on coat. His publicist needs to get on the ball. I'm already making the assumption he doesn't know any better......

    I do. But some people can get away with it. It's not exactly against the law.

    I don't do it, but what's the huge faux pas with a tie and no jacket/blazer? If the shirt fits well and the tie is the correct length I've never really thought to myself that it looked bad.

    It doesn't look bad if you're a software engineer / waiter / bus driver... [​IMG]

    Now, really, I don't know what does exactly make it bad. But it just looks like something's missing, or like a work uniform.
