    I meant to do that!

    What style rules do you break deliberately? Not because you don't know better--on the contrary, you know the rule or guideline or whatever, but choose not to follow it.

    Myself, I like to wear white sweatsocks. I know you're not supposed to with anything but athletic gear. But I sometimes rock a good, thick pair of sweatsocks with my light-khaki chinos, low Chucks, and a t-shirt or sweatshirt. I just think they look good that way.

    I wear bluchers with suits all the time. I'm a wild man.

    Yeah, I guess!

    I wear dark chocolate plain bluchers with my charcoal grey suit. (Gasp!)

    Something else: I don't like to wear pocket squares. I almost never do.

    I don't do watches. Or pocket squares.

    I don't either. I don't like the feel of something of my wrist.

    Interesting.

    I couldn't do without either the function (quickly checking the time) or the look (an easy accessory).

    At the same time, I don't think not wearing a watch breaks a style rule or guideline that I can think of. I don't recall ever reading anything or hearing anyone say that a man should wear a watch.

    Thirded.

    The other "rules" I break are wearing balmorals with chinos and wearing ties without a jacket. Usually at the same time. Although I think it should be noted that the tie is usually a silk knit, cotton, or chambray and my sleeves are rolled up... both factors that I think make it more acceptable.

    I usually break rules because I am lacking clothing in a certain area. I am still accumulating my wardrobe and there is still a lot on the list. Worst offense may be gym clothes to run errands but this is usually because I just went to the gym not because (like I learned a lot of females do) wear gym clothes because they look like crap. My wife will through on Lulu's and a tank top to run errands because she doesn't want to shower and this then looks like she was at the gym? Weird.

    Something of an inverse breaking of rules, maybe: I like to wear my OCBDs tucked into my jeans and with a belt. 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.
