Started this discussion. Last reply by SCOMO Jul 28, 2010. 8 Replies

So I've only worn a bow tie with a tux... but I want to try it with a suit. Is it a faux pas to wear a black tux bow tie with a regular black suit with a regular dress shirt (not a tux shirt)?Continue

"They where a great idea before the ability to order shirts to a custom length when access to tailors was hard or too expensive. If you want a good fitted shirt order it.  If you want to look like you ordered a shirt to long, use them. "

"To be fair, ties aren't really needed either, besides adding to the ensemble they don't do much but choke you ever so slightly, the things we do for fashion right? Well keep in mind that the sleeve garters are made so you can adjust…"

"I agree, they are not meant to be an accessory of showmanship but one of necessity. It is far cheaper to get a good pair of arm bands and use them then it is to pay to have all your shirts tailored."

"I've worn them under suit jackets many times over the years, they serve a useful purpose if your shirt sleeves are a little too long.   I personally wouldn't wear them as a "fashion statement" or anything, just use them as a…"

"They've been made of steel for a while. I've got two pairs of steel sleeve-garters. Personally I reckon they'd be more comfortable than cloth elastic ones (and certainly longer lasting)."

"l remember printers wearing them when l was a kid , back when all men wore white collar shirts . The ones l remember were made of steel , and for some reason remind me of slinkies ."

"They only look 'dumb' if you don't know how to pull them off. Making something look good is a matter of having the balls to wear it with confidence and style."

Shahan replied to Joe's discussion Old School Arm Bands: Yea or Nay
"The rich were able to have their shirts custom-made by professional shirtmakers. Those who weren't so well-off bought shirts that were only measured in neck-circumfrence. Everything else (sleeve-lengths included) were extra large to fit as many…"

Shahan replied to Joe's discussion Old School Arm Bands: Yea or Nay
"I wear sleeve-garters from time to time and leave them exposed. But I'd only do that if I was wearing a waistcoat as well to give it a sort of 'look' or 'style', if that makes any sense at all. I'd never wear them if I…"

Hey, I'm really glad to see another guy on this board defending chastity! I'm also glad to see you provided Alex Romo a link to chastity.com -- that's an awesome site! You can't go wrong with Jason and Crystalina Evert! Of course, whether or not he'll read it is another matter. At any rate, keep up the good fight! God bless.
