but what is a sport coat? is it what we call a blazer in the uk?

Thank you for this. Maybe I stil have some hope as a native English speaker didn't understand that. My first idea was something like:



That is SO rad!  PoM!!!

I was being facetious. Anyway, I do like blazers as suits look ridiculous on young people and in everyday use

I'm still wondering though what blazers have to do with sports. I understand that they have historically been associated with sports but that does sound a bit weird nowadays as suit is not the norm anymore.

Sport coats are not blazers. For example, there is no such thing as a double-breasted sport coat.

That being said, the name is a bit archaic perhaps, but they originated as garments worn for hunting and riding.

opus118,
sorry, i am not young, my memory is not good!
 Wink
but you write like a young person, it's very refreshing.
it that actually you in the photo from when you were young in 1920?

alpo, those jackets were the big fashion mistake in 1980s and 1990s.
 Shocked
when worn with matching trousers (never, ever do this!), they are called shell suits and were most popular in liverpool in 1990s. i know, i was there (i didn't have one!)
they symbolised lack of style and hygiene (you wear it all week without washing it)!

Can't blame any immigrant not wanting to assimilate into mainstream society. Actually this makes me wonder why did anyone move to the Western countries in the 80s. A single glance on a suit like that would convince me of corruption of Western civilization.

There are stories that someone used to wear parachute pants to the office in the '90's.  He also had a mullet.

Dear all. I have a problem. What kind of shoes and shirt to wear with a kilt? What about jacket?
Depends on the reason you're wearing it and who you ask. If you wear them as casual wear like I do, wear them with whatever you want. I always wear mine with boots of some kind since I think my normal shoes don't quite "go" with them. As far as shirts go, I usually wear button-downs, but t-shirts and sweaters work. Hoodies make me look like a school girl, so I stay away from those while kilted.

If you're asking about more formal wear, it really depends on the occasion and how much you're willing to spend. The two most common jacket styles are Argyle and Prince Charlie. Argyle is more versatile and less expensive. It can be used in situations wear you'd normally wear a suit, but you can also get away with more formal tuxedo style events if it's nice enough and you accessorize properly. A Prince Charlie is considered really formal, so there are fewer occasions where it would be considered appropriate (you wouldn't want to wear one to a wedding as a guest, for instance). There are a few other styles, but those two are the most common.
If you don't want to go the traditional route and want to wear a more typical suit jacket, be warned: the hem of the jacket shouldn't be longer than the sleeves. Pretty much anything you're likely to have in your closet already would be too long and look tacky. Ultimately, though, it's not likely you're going to run into many people who know what's what when it comes to Highland dress, so you're probably not going to get called out if you don't follow the "rules."

And then there are all the accessories to consider...

Suits with uncollared shirts are an abomination unto the menswear gods, yea, they are hateful unto them and will be spued out of their mouths.

Amen. I didn't even know that people did that.

When I wear black-tie I usually go half break.

The tan suit. Discuss.

I think it was a serious moral offence that needs to be apologized We will not defeat ISIS until we stop wearing suits like that.

You mean something like this?



What's wrong with it? It's not my favourite colour either but it isn't that bad either.

It was a reference for Obama wearing one while having an anti-ISIS press conference. It was weird to see a president wearing a suit like that while almost declaring a war.

It didn't look too bad on him. It just isn't the proper thing to wear on formal occasions. But then again, often he doesn't bother to wear a tie to formal events either.

Hence the funny. But then again I might have a fairly obscure sense of humour.

Apparently what Obama did was not without precedents.

It didn't fit him and it was a particularly ugly shade of tan.

It was certainly too big for him.
