    [MENTION=4677]Shade[/MENTION], same here. The more broken in, the better. I will, though, oil or condition a boot or other footwear about once a year if it's a winter or bad weather footwear, just to give me more protection from rain/snow.

        I wear brown wingtips with a navy suit at weddings. Women faint and men gasp at my willingness to distract attention from the bride! Sometimes, I even wear a colorful tie! And pocket square!!

          Flip. Flops.

          Also, I frequently wear a tie and no jacket.

            I wore flip flops with a charcoal grey suit to one wedding. That was fun. It was on a lake and we arrived by boat.

              Regarding watches, I knew a very well-dressed guy, manager of a men's store, who wore his nice watch strapped so the face was on his inner wrist, not on the outer as is customary. When I asked why, he said that's the way a true gentleman wore his watch.

              I've seen other men wear their watches on their right wrist.

              I think the inner-wrist wear is a little odd. I guess the right wrist might make sense if you're left-handed?

                I don't always wear a watch, but when I do, I prefer to wear it on my right wrist.

                I'm left-handed, by the way.

                  Same here. Good leather looks better after a little wear.

                    Same here. I ALWAYS tuck in my OCBD with a belt regardless if I am wearing a blazer with it or not. In regards to watches, I just didnt like the feel of it. Couldnt get used to it. I do like how they look however. Just not for me.

I know it is very popular to untuck shirts with jeans but I only feel comfortable doing that with polos and t-shirts. About the only time I wear my OCBDs untucked is lounging around the house.

                      As someone who travels a lot, I prefer monk straps or other slipons over traditional, laced shoes.

                      I have also taken to wearing watches with metal bracelets simply because then, I don't have to worry about my watch strap color matching my shoes, belt, bag etc. One less color (and shade) to worry about.

                      I love pocket squares, and I prefer wearing a patterned one over a solid one, regardless of the patterns on my jacket or shirt.

                        I wear my watch on my right wrist, and I am right handed.

                        What started out as a contrarian act to stand out in middle school has become a well ingrained habit after a couple of decades.

                        Now it just feels weird to wear my watch on my left wrist.

                          It seems like a lot of people around here recommend walnut AE Strands with navy. I'm obviously in the minority but I'd say that look gets a:

                          Walnut shoes with a navy suit is a favorite combination of mine, as is oxblood and navy.

                          I prefer dark brown with charcoal or gray, however.

                            I've seen a few women do this but never a man. It's a good way to scratch up the crystal of a watch.

                                Okay, there's breaking rules, then there's just being bad.
