My collection of sartorial advice from around the US and Canada: "Black suits are versatile". "Always button the bottom button; sometimes the middle; never the top". (One law student said this to another while giving me the evil eye for not following the "rules" "Double breasted suits are for fat people". "Your shirt sleeve is the right length when it's still covering your watch with your arm bent". "You've outgrown your suit when your shirt sleeves are showing underneath your suit". "Dark shirts with light ties are fashionable". "Cowboy boots look well with suits". "Denim jackets are versatile". Where the hell are people getting this advice from? What have you heard?
