    I wish people would go to the trouble of wearing an OCBD, loafers and chinos. I'm Always amazed to see people out and about in clothing I would wear when working on my car or in the garden. Here in The Netherlands an OCBD with chinos and loafers would easily propel you into the top 5% of best dressed men.

    I agree.

    However, I was making fun of the people on Ask Andy, Style Forum, and Male Fashion Advice.

    Super styling in the first pick: The angle of the hat, the snap of the brim plus the full-on pinstripe of the double-breasted suit - damn - and, hard to tell from the pick, but, possibly, those are suede wingtips. That outfit didn't just happen by chance. Her incredible outfit wasn't happenstance either.

    Second pick - somehow the rumpled drape looks elegant on him (on me it would just look rumpled :( - it pays to be Douglas Fairbanks Jr.).

    Third pick - great tab collar

    When would we estimate that photo with Charlie Chaplin was taken?

    ⇧ Two men who liked clothes a lot in their personal lives - they didn't just dress well on screen.

    I wore suits for over two decades in my career (now, infrequently, as even Wall Street has gone "business casual" or, even, outright casual), but I never, ever looked that sharp (or even close :().
