    Belts for suits, they damage the clean look of a suit

    Aside from going to the pool/beach no shorts.

    With you on this one, always thought they looked horrendous.

    Now that's interesting, I always feel a suit without a belt looks incomplete.

    I never wear whatever that doesn't complement my features and physique.

    Monks.

    And yeah, I, too, try to avoid belts with suits.

    Yes. Visually, especially with a grey suit, I like the effect that a belt has at the waist, and to me it looks incomplete without one.

    I will never, ever wear tasselled loafers. Hideous.

    The warm, approving bukkake of SF whenever I post a fit pic. Also cardigans.

    Agreed, I'd never wear the things either. Think they're a North American thing anyway.

    In recent years I've developed a strong distaste for black wingtips, or wingtips of any color for that matter, with a suit. Although I have several pairs of shell blucher wingtips in black, #8, and brown, I only wear them with casual clothing. I don't own any wingtip oxfords, and won't buy any.
