No. No one likely noticed, unless your belly is big enough/the coat too small and it tugged. No one noticed or cared.

Don't wear white gym socks. Match belt and shoes. Generally, match trousers and socks, but this one seems to be going the way of the Dodo. Men are more and more frequently becoming more adventurous in their sock choice, but always with dress socks. Suit Coat should end at the wrist bone, allowing 1/4 inch or so of sleeve to show, but no is likely to notice, as you sit, pull, move, etc and the shirt might not show.

I'd notice if the bottom button was fastened, but wouldnt think much of it. I dont care much how others dress, so long as they make reasonable attempt to dress for the proper occasion.

"Rules" that i follow
- Top button (2 button suite) or middle button (3 button suit) fastened
- Match belt color with shoe color
- Tie hits around the belt
- Match shade of sock to the suit
- Suspenders OR Belt
- Button down collar shirt for less formal setting

Do guys still wear cuff links? My dad used to, exclusively, it seemed. We used to play with them when were kids. My husband has never worn them once. My son has probably never heard of them.

If it has a vent in the back, make sure to take out the huge white basting stitch designed to keep the vent lying flat and uncreased while it ships, etc. (big “X” of thread). You don’t even want to know the amount of men I’ve stood behind on escalators in NYC who don’t know this. This can be on raincoats/trenches too.

Implied here is that with a suit or blazer, wear a long sleeve shirt.

And, if not wearing a jacket but wearing a tie, go long sleeve. That is the advice I received early on. But I rarely wear a tie ... I think I still own a couple, but would really need to check before saying so with confidence.
