Q: Dear Greek God of Style, What is the social etiquette for wearing stripes?
A: Dear ASS&IOD, Stripes- so simple yet so complicated. Side stripes should not be worn in such a way to enhance one's girth. If a tight shirt creeps above one's beltline, that is an absolute fail . . . unless you are sailing in the Mediterranean. Vertical stripes are also a "no-no" unless one strives to mimick Davey Jones from The Monkees. Never a good look. If you are bent on wearing stripes, do so under a flannel to re-live 1994. Or better yet, dont!
