  1. SOME OF THE MOST ELEGANTLY DRESSED MEN WORK IN OFFICES LOCATED IN THE FILTHIEST PARTS OF THE CITY, LIKE NEW YORK. WEARING EXPENSIVE SHOES AND A WELL CRAFTED SUIT WHILE WALKING DOWN THE STREET WHERE THE SMELLS OF THE PEOPLE AND THE POTHOLES, BEGGARS, RATS, AND GARBAGE ABOUND IS ONLY FOR THE VERY RICH WHO CAN AFFORD TO HAVE THE SUIT DESTROYED AFTER 1 WEAR.

  2. I'm in the military. There's a whole chunk of the military that works in an office 9 to 5. I've never understood why they don't wear their service uniforms, which are there as essentially business or office-wear. Leave the camo pajamas for people that actually do dirty work or are in the field. I also wish the the mandarin collar hadn't infected every US utility uniform. The old 80s/90s tricolors and every uniform back to the 1930s had a traditional collar and with the right amount of fit and finish could double as almost business casual. Tucked blouse, a touch of starch, non-faded pattern, rolled sleeves, it can all look very slick. Today, however, every utility uniform is big and baggy by design, because Americans are becoming bigger and baggier. It is also there to make them unisex as more women enter the military. I can't wear a regular pair of utilities as "garrison-wear" or as an "inspection-ready" pair without getting some alterations done at a tailor so it doesn't look like I'm wearing a trash bag.

  3. In 12:04 on i notice that the gentleman is wearing a double strap shoes with a blue jeans however what I learnt from Jacomet sartorial serials that when wearing these kind of shoes the literature says not to tie both strap but only the lower one
    Thanks

  4. not trying to hate, but after seeing some of your videos your overall style seems VERY dated. color combos are really on point but subtle details really throw you off…

  5. 7:26 I’m a software developer and used to work at a big Fortune 500 company that was pretty business casual. As long as you didn’t wear shorts, sandals, or pajamas. I just switched jobs to another tech company that’s more engineering and the outfits there are appalling. Tons of shorts, sandals, flip flops, hiking boots. I usually wear my same business casual looks (ocbd and jeans with derbys or chukka boots) and it’s several steps above. Engineers just don’t care about what they’re wearing I guess lol.

  6. Most people at my job think I have an interview when I decide to dress up in a tie with a tie bar, a dress shirt (solid colors), slacks with dress up shoes and others just hate me cause I dress up while some give me compliments. I got a lot of haters (millennials) 🀣

  7. You never wear the collar outside the jacket? I go for thet look somtimes if it works like with a casual silk shortsleeved which compliment and match the jacket.
    Especially with no tie it can work

  8. This was not at all helpful for my job as a wilderness backpacking and mountaineering guide. There is no good way to clip a pair of crampons around cap-toe oxfords. πŸ˜‰

  9. My dad remembers the dress code becoming more casual. His wardrobe didn't change until he realized he was "out-dressing" people 3 or more levels above him.

  10. Being in an engineering office I loathe wearing expensive clothing. Most of the time one can predict or schedule a trip to production or to prototype shop but other times it can be random. This means a chance of getting grease or other damaging materials on clothing. Lab coats hinder climbing around and under vehicles. I typically wear business casual because of this reason. Changing clothes in a semi public bathrooms is not something I wish to do.

  11. Hi Sven, i'm 58 and try for years to buy black dress-shoes…haha, every time i leave with a brown pair! For me…black dont show the full beauty of leather and for me the most suits or combinations looks fresher with a brown shoe. Even a black suit looks boring and funeral-like with black shoes. I know the older english gentelman rule: "no browns after seven" but i find no way ;-D
    By the way, the open collar is a good look for you……looks fresh

  12. Good morning Sven – I appreciate the video! I like to look good on my off time and your videos have helped me upgrade my casual wear, accessories, and I’m the proud new owner of a beautiful fountain pen. However, I own my own building inspection company. My work clothes consist of a polo shirt and khaki shorts, and have for as long as I remember. I need clothes that aren’t sloppy but still allow full range of motion if I have to get on a roof or in a crawl space. Added twist – I also need to stay cool and minimize sweat stains in 90+ degree Louisiana weather, so almost all of these polo shirts are black or navy, and cotton. It is to be hoped that somewhere in your compendium you’ve run across clothes that might help me polish my appearance but allow me to do my job? Or would this situation be the exception to the rule? Much appreciated, and keep up the excellent content!
