    I once wore white unlined linen trousers to a wedding reception and later learned that while on the dance floor most observers were transfixed by my translucency; which explained those fanciful gazes from the women in attendance.

    They must be forced to take them off in public and apologized in public for crime against sartorial humanity.

    Button down collars a crime? Say it ain't so! I love my OCBDs! They're not for all occasions, but they definitely have their place.

    I mean, what else are you supposed to wear as office casual?

    sadly, a number of these crimes I have committed and continue to commit, mainly because I can't afford to go out and buy all new clothes. I do have a Kenneth Cole suit that I still really like, though.

    I wear and enjoy three Banana Republic suits myself, so no need to worry. My real fashion atrocity - Buying and wearing a three-button, notch lapel, BOSS tuxedo. But this offers my some solace: [​IMG]

    +1 on the Men's Wearhouse, especially their alterations tailor. Dear god are they inept. I also partially blame them for the fact that, until recently, I didn't know my proper jacket size.

    I haven't committed too many MC crimes, outside of owning a pair of very clunky dress shoes (thankfully a square-toe has never (dis)graced my foot) or owning some very billowy shirts (I used to believe that people purposefully had their shirts billow out slightly over the belt). I am guilty of forcing skinny jeans into a lot of fits where they don't work (clunky footwear).

    I didn't know my actual size for jackets until a little before I joined SF. I was shopping with a friend and tried on a 38 M65 by Boss which happened to fit perfectly (I had assumed I was mostly an L prior). Luckily I had only one SC anyway, which I had worn only once (I think it was a 42 at least!).

    No no no, this thread is about fashion crimes, not things that are awesome.
