I'm interested in hearing people's views on wearing a suit without a tie, both the correctness and the aesthetics of it. At the risk of losing friends or standing on here, I will state that I consider it a perfectly acceptable look (when done right) for many situations where smart clothing is called for but a full suit and tie isn't required. I'll also admit that it's a look I'm very comfortable with and frequently go for, often for the simple reason that I find it uncomfortable wearing a tie for over ten hours. Of course it's important that it doesn't look like the tie was simply taken off. I find this works best with relatively plain or subtly patterned suits and shirts in muted colours like blue or grey (but not plain white). I'm aware that some people find a suit without a tie distasteful and I welcome them to join this discussion and voice their opinions.
