I think it's important to take "button stance," the distance between the top button and the second button, into account. A shirt with a button stance too far with the top unbuttoned will make a man look like a sleazy lounge lizard. A button stance too near and the person looks super conservative and boring.

This button stance is an important consideration.

Well said. I hadn't thought of that.

All excellent advice to keep a man looking sharp as a tack at the office on "no tie" days. Isn't it funny that four out of five "don'ts" linger on from the '70s and '80s?

Funny in that really, really sad way.

"So rather than confuse everyone’s eyes by wearing a navy blazer with a slightly different blue pair of pants, simply go in the opposite direction and coordinate light to dark." agree.
