I share yep's favoured style, I am really into the contrasting collar with double cuffs look to a shirt. I like big stiff collars and stiff cuffs, and pay attention to the back height of the collar. 4cm back height minimum for me, 5cm/5.5cm/6cm back height is a nice option to. 2 button high collars look fantastic.

I don't mind trousers, but prefer a skirt, tights and nice heels. I also quite like the all in one pinafore dress with the shirt underneath look. You get some really nice smart ones now a days, with deep V shapes at the neck also to show off that tie Smile

I can't stand the modern skinny thin ties trend, and think it is sad it is becoming increasingly difficult to find proper "classic" width ties these days. Many retailers even list ties that are 8cm as classic size width ties, which is wrong really. I would not buy a tie any less than 9.5cm width, and ideally 10-10.5cm is best.

Skirt suit, dress shirt which is fitted to the female form with snug collar and French cuffs and cuff links, striped or sold colour wide silk tie, high black stilettos, feminine make up with a bob haircut or hair up so the snug collar can be seen..... specific enough?? lol

Single color 3-piece knee-length pencil skirt suit, woolen or tweed; white shirt with high and snug collar (agree with "High Collar Shirt Guy" for enough back height), single or double cuff; silk necktie tied into a tight and snug knot, together with golden color collar pin; black sheer tight/pantyhose w/ or w/o back seam; dark dress shoes, either plain or heeled; slight make up and bunned hair. That's the perfect image in my mind.

That sounds so strict and classy!

This is the first time I've heard someone pay so much attention to the height of a collar!
Agreed the wide ties are best! (I'm now converted!)

We all like to be strict and classy, aren't we:) But that could be really rare in real life, as it's "too" strict to many people. I guess maybe some female butlers, funeral undertakers or staff in the bank would dress like this.

I guess you might be interested with this pic. The lady is Mrs Robert S. Alter who was a member of the Red Cross Motor Corps of America during WW1. I think the shirt she wore is perfect and very close to your description. I do love the tie which popped up a bit because the shirt collar was brought together tightly by the collar pin. Very strict and elegant.

I know we all have different preferences as to what we like. That look does nothing for me personally. Like most I am fairly 'fussy' about how a shirt and tie is styled and worn. I prefer a traditional collar shirt and reasonably big knot of tie. I won't list all the things I dislike, too many, sounds like another thread? The top 10 dislikes list? I will say my pet hate and top of the list for me would be unbuttoned shirt collars and loose ties.

I agree. I think one thing all of us share in common is we can never bear an unbuttoned shirt collar and loose ties, which must be the most terrible look ever.

For me, while the formality of a 3-piece skirt suit is ideal, I am all for a variety of outfits so long as the shirt and tie underneath is properly worn. Everyone has their own style, and see it expressed is always fun. I love the versatility.


There's nothing quite like a white shirt and a properly worn tie, as described above. Two tone shirts are also great. Cuff links are preferable. I also prefer the look to be as feminine as possible, to counter-act the masculinity of the necktie. Pants, while stylish, are a hassle.

Footwear is also important. Heels, boots, I am not overly particular about them so long as they are pulled off well.

I'm partial to dresses, sweaters, jackets, vests, really anything so long as it is worn formally and in the correct manner. Who doesn't love obeying the rules?

A recent fling of mine was very much into Lolita fashion, so, she wore frills, petti coats, etc. as and began to incorporate a short and tie. It was exhilarating to see incorporate a proper shirt and tie into her style.

"Who doesn't love obeying the rules?" Indeed!!
It sounds like your partners have a lot of fun and choice when dressing for you Smile
