    it’s cool, but if you wear it like picrel it will look really larpy.
    this is how you should wear a suit without looking like you are cosplaying or an autist.

          Oddly specific insult. Did both a banker and an insurance salesman cuck you at the same time?

          Your first mistake is dressing to impress girls. Dress to look good and feel confident. If you’re confident in your fashion you’ll attract girls who like you for you. If you dress to appeal to the average woman you’ll attract shallow boring girls who only like you because you’ve tailored your appearance to appeal to the broadest possible range of people.

            suits are in a very awkward point today where they all seem to be cut entirely too small and this widespread attempt to wrap the suit around the body instead of letting things be loose makes most men look stuffy and fat in suits.

            One thing that I think a lot of people miss about mad men is that their suits are rather grand and not cut like today’s. they are also all actors.

            I received a bunch of "undersize" jackets/pants from the 80s/90s from an old guy I know and the weird thing is that they fit 3000% better than anything I could buy for the same adjusted cheap price today at Macys or whatever. Wide enough legs, arms, everything- I ended up keeping nearly every pant and only donating a few jackets to goodwill simply because I love the feeling of not being a sausage

            Yeah old clothes just fit better. Like half my clothes are older than i am at this point.

        His jacket doesn’t have the lapel roll that one would typically want to show off when wearing a three button suit by only buttoning the middle button. You’re evidently an autism fuelled rule based suit wearer.

        no, they are just talmudic jobs associated with formal wear, aka suits. you can put lawyers, judges, politicians into it too.
        i just dont like them because they are dishonest and work against the native people.

      That suit looks bad. Pants too low, button point too high. also, collared shirt with no tie says kid going to prom or "my work made me wear this". I will say it looks better than a lot of modern suits because the material doesn’t look incredibly cheap but i would not wear this.

      Suits are expensive and you need to take care of them.

      Its cheaper to be comfy in chinos and knitwear.

      The introduction of polyester into the wider market, the rise of fast fashion, and international trade massively pushed up the prices of clothing to the point that people could no longer afford to buy decent clothing (wool, etc). Polyester suits are hellish, see , and companies have simply “relaxed” more, meaning suits are no longer required in the workplace. No necessity + sweating your balls off in a suit means there’s no need to ever wear one outside weddings and funerals. Even then, people tend to wear them like here

      uncomfortable, high maintenance, impractical, and not even that good looking, just sleazy businessman slope that I don’t even know why it became widespread with the general population in the first place, also life is already hard in the 4HL life, imagine wearing a suit every day for your wageslave job lol, even the elites understood that and started wearing and promoting more comfortable clothes for the general population

      ugly, uncomfortable, expensive.
      just like 90% of other formal wear bullshit.

      The reason they’re unomfortable is because they’re either very bad polyester and/or the wrong size.

      The sad fact is that suits are on average very low quality today because people only wear them for weddings, etc. They’ve been reduced to the quality of a halloween costume, not even real clothing anymore.
      Imagine a halloween costume of a guy in a tshirt and jeans with sneakers. With the typical quality of a halloween costume, the shoes are weird plastic things that fall apart, the jeans feel like they’re made out of a tent tarp, and the tshirt feels like printer paper. And the whole thing is just awkward to move in because it was seemingly not even designed for a human to wear. That’s what most suits are today.

      But a real suit, not a halloween costume, is very different. It is made of real clothing fabric, that feels the same a tshirt when worn. And if it fits right it doesn’t constrict you.

      Think about it, for generations the rich and famous wore suits every day of their life. Their suits were custom made from the ground up. Do you really think these people with such levels of freedom would choose to wear something uncomfortable?

    The counter culture movement of the sixties, it as nothing to do with suits being expensive, cheaper suits have always existed and all classes of people wore them. Formality started to wane in general after the second world war because people coming home from the war were also getting fed up with wearing caps and trying to look smart all the time because that’s what they had to do in the army.

      The aftermath of ww2 was a death knell for beauty in general. Architecture took a similar hit right around then.

      This isn’t true, especially for old fashioned suits which were baggier, i have have had a couple of old ones and they are perfectly comfortable. Another reason for suits falling out of favour is the advent of central heating and motor vehicles, so people no longer had to wear as many layers or headwear, so there isn’t really just one factor what comes into play.

    Semi-related, but what do you all think about navy suits vs gray? In America, navy is the go-to, but in Europe, gray is the standard.

    good suits are not cheap and have to be taken care of. if my job lets me show up in jeans and a polo i bought from walmart that i can treat like shit that’s what i’m going to do. when i wear a suit have to be careful of what i’m doing and if it gets dirty i can’t just throw it in the wash. it’s a lot of hassle for not a lot of reward as most people are going to think you’re trying too hard and/or that you think you’re better than them.

    smart-casual is the best compromise and even that is falling by the wayside as businesses give up dress codes entirely in an attempt to get people to come back to offices.

    Because cullture is in decline.
    Slave aesthetics are in fashion, its cool for billionaires to wear a grey t-shirt. Materials for clothes lose quality. They use less material. Just feel how heavy a jacket from the 70s – 80s feels and how light a new Boss jacket is.

    heck this industry and culture I am sick of it

      I just back from a year in Korea a week ago and im having fashion whiplash. Most guys and gals under 40 in Korea dress like they are going to a fancy dining establishment but those are their causal clothes for going to the grocey store. I dress like how Id normally dress going out in korea and my friends are like "why are you so dressed up. We are just going to the mall." I look around me and most people are wearing PJ pants and greasy graphics tees. How do people go out like that and not feel embarrassed.

        Because people have no shame left in them. And nobody shames them for their degenerate behavior.

        I’m asking myself often the same. Especially with Boomer males. Seeing many of them wear shorts, runnig shoes and a cheap t-shirt in summer while also being obese makes me wanna puke. They are the same type that would cope with a big overpriced car and stare at you when you dress somewhat decently.

    Suits gradually became worn less by the day for men after World War II. There were still around quite much in the cities, even as late as the 1980s, though.

    Depends on how you carry yourself while wearing a suit. If you’re awkward and uncomfortable with yourself then a suit will accentuate your discomfort and awkwardness. Same logic applies to being confident.

    >why did men stop wearing suits?
    We didn’t. I have a collection, and I’m not the only one who I see wearing them around, even in a small, coastal, leftist, immigrant-heavy town in Leafland. It’s uncommon enough that people ask me why I’m wearing one sometimes, but in Vancouver it’s absolutely common enough that nobody even bats an eye.

    Casual, comfortable clothes came into vogue for reasons others have already detailed, but suits never actually went out of fashion except as mandatory business attire or hanging out clothes. They became a form of fancy dress to signal status or celebrate an occasion, but everyone still thinks they’re cool and if you wear one with confidence, people will probably think you look cool.

      I live in Hongcouver and most people aren’t wearing suits unless you work in a job that requires it (sales clerk at Gucci or bank teller etc).

      I mean if you take the transit, you will see maybe one old man or bank teller wearing a suit.

    I actually like the fact no one wears suits anymore. Because now when I wear one I automatically look better than everyone else and stand out. My suggestion is to get in shape, get a good suit, get it tailored and wear it. You will notice instant respect from normies.

    • Anonymous says:

      You don’t need to be in good shape to look good in a suit. That’s the whole point of a suit. As long as it’s tailored, you will look good even if you’re a fatheck (not morbidly obese). If anything, being too fit will make you look like a sexcore homo in a suit.

      Do not dress like this anons. This is how you look like a pimp or a porn star or a used car salesman.
      Get a suit that fits right (jacket covers your ass, chest doesn’t pull), wear a pocket square that COMPLIMENTS your suit and shirt color, never matches, and get a tie in a DIFFERENT complimentary color. If you match your tie and pocket square you look like a kid going to prom.

    I don’t have a job and a suit would be unnecessary, as I don’t usually need to wear a jacket. Formal clothing also tends to get in the way of full freedom of movement. A suit will just not be as stretchy as a T-shirt, and dress shoes will not let me run like sneakers.

    It’s part of a general trend in society toward being more relaxed and casual. In some ways this is good, I don’t think anyone wants the return to the days of wearing full morning dress just to go for breakfast, but i think it goes too far sometimes and people end up being sloppy and lazy.

      nobody is forcing you to buy "fashion" suits rather than classical cuts. most people that say shit like you end up looking a fool buying big fat massive 50s suits without a tailor on speeddial

        99% of the available suits are of the shitty "fashion" variety though. If the majority of options look shit most people are gonna look shit because most people won’t have the knowledge or resources to go out of their way to get the 1% that actually looks good.

        Also even a non tailored suit from the 50s (assuming the fit is not ridiculously off) will look better than many tailored modern suits because modern suit styles are simply bad.

      Try getting clothes what fit

      Same here, I wear suits from the 90s and they’re so much more comfortable, especially the pants.

      Yeah all my suits from the 70’s to 90’s fit fine and are perfectly comfortable, people don’t understand these days that clothes are not meant to feel like they’re painted on and that the trouser waist isn’t meant to be around your hips.
