Establish your own personal rules and use other rules as guidelines, or things to pay extra attention to.
E.g. 'Don't wear suits with trainers.'
I totally get why people say this, but I've seen it and it does work, in certain cases. Now this < bit is the key bit. Rules are rules for a reason, but certain rules can be broken. As in don't wear a suit with green Nike Air Max 95's, but do wear a suit with white Common Projects Achilles.
One of my general rules is don't wear anything with a big/loud logo or too much branding, subtly does a long way.
Fully suited as in shirt, tie, no belt, "the one crease at the hem"... No. I still struggle to find a real life situation where it would work if not a celebrity.
I don't disagree Marc. I find Dan a bit try-hard at times. But then, by pushing boundaries, he may inspire some. Happy for him to make the mistakes (as I see them), then I can take any bits I like. Plus the rest of the team are still doing more conservative stuff, esp in the WIWT piece.

The suit with trainers thing is something I don't get to be honest although I don't even use trainers for casual outfits. I use my tan brogues or black leather monkstraps anything more casual is taken care of by the desertboot usually.
