If you’ve ever been to an Indian wedding, there’s always one uncle dressed VERY casually (tshirt and jeans, no shoes) even when it’s a black tie wedding lol. Cracks me up every time

Haha yeah makes me wonder if all the Indian uncles just get together and draw straws on who is gonna do it for the next wedding so there’s always someone to hold down the tradition

White athletic socks with formal shoes, lol. Big no no!

Hands down biggest faux pas for a male!

I work in govt IT space so there’s quite a bit…biggest for me are maroon/dark shirts while also wearing a dark tie.

Id never be caught dead in either.

The other big ones are square toe shoes and too much pattern combination.

A stipe tie with a solid shirt is fine but with a plaid it’s too busy. One could maybe get away with a window pane and a patterned tie but it would have to be a very thin window pane.

Wearing running or gym shoes with jeans. Will only accept this to/from a commute that involves a decent amount of walking.

This one has started to grow on me in recent years- seeing the white crew shirt underneath an unbuttoned dress shirt.. guys just wear a v-neck so you don’t see the white shirt.

IT shoes. Square toe shoes for men

Shoes for men seem to be the biggest issue. Lots of these disgusting rubber square toed loafers paired with otherwise fine outfits. Also wearing athletic shoes to an office is always going to be tacky

Most of my career has been federal govt clients. Lets just say they give no fks and wear anything. Leggins has to be the biggest offender. Close second is club dresses.

High waist jeans. They seem to have come back in style for a certain age group, then—I’m thankful—fell out of style quite soon. I mean, I’m kind of a contrarian, but that was ridiculous.

Light blue seersucker suit with yellow leather shoes and yellow silk tie. I thought it was fabulous and when people wanted pictures with the outfit, I understood.

The seersucker I get. Just not the yellow with it. But yellow loafers can be fabulous.

$TAP - got this from dumb money so don't want o take credit. Reopening means more booze at bars. They distribute Topo Chico Seltzers for Coca Cola. They are turning a corner on their debt and fundamentals actually work now. It's a big turnaround story that I think has legs on multiple fronts. I've been in since mid 46ish. I just tried Topo seltzers today. I am convinced this is going to kill it. See sam adams for possibilities.
