|I was at a wedding this past weekend, and the bride's older brother was dressed like an idiot. Not because he didn't feel like dressing for the occasion, but because he apparently never learned how to dress like an adult. I'm no fashion expert, but I feel like there are a few simple rules to follow when you reach the age of maturity and don't want to look like an idiot:
This message is for you, Mr. No Tie Creased White Shirt with No Belt at a Wedding. #lifestyle
- If you're wearing a collared shirt, iron it. Sometimes you can get away with a somewhat wrinkled shirt in a casual situation, but if you're at work or a formal occasion, that shit won't fly. It's ridiculously obvious you bought that white button-down shirt on the drive over because it still has the crease marks from the packaging.
- If you tuck your shirt in, wear a belt. It doesn't make a difference if you need a belt or not; just wear one. I don't know why this is a rule, but I remember learning it from my dad and subsequently judging everyone who broke the rule.
- If you wear a tie, tuck it under your collar. There's no better way to signal to the world that you're an incompetent dumbass than by having your tie stick out of your collar as if your stumbly bumbly childlike fingers were unable to accomplish a simple mechanical task.
- If you're at a wedding, wear a tie. If you're at a job interview, wear a tie. If you're at a formal occasion where most men are wearing ties, wear a tie.
