Depends...what is the ironic way to wear one? * Archived Message
Posted by haighter on June 7, 2022, 9:14:46, in reply to "Does that mean you have unironically worn a bolo with a denim shirt before?*"
...that if I put a tie on with, I'd look like a gym teacher.
Or a navy, velvet, western shirt with pearl snaps.
But I don't have a standard, long sleeve, white dress shirt.
So, I'm assuming I need a suit. I don't own a suit. I don't have a blazer or sportcoat or any of that. I don't even have a shirt that I'd feel comfortable wearing a tie with.
What is a safe bet for a middle-40s dude and how much should it cost? I wanna look nice but not like a poof. I want ONE suit, not multiple suits. I don't wanna spend 1000 bucks either, because as referenced above, I don't even have one now, so I'm not going to need one that costs me a grand and I hang in my closet for another 2 years.
Links would be appreciated.
