Style rules exist for a reason. Yes, they can seem overly didactic and even a little patronising at times, but the great majority of people would be lost without them. There comes a time, though, when we build up enough knowledge about a given subject to start making our own decisions. This is when rules can become barriers.

Today’s style question offers up a perfect illustration of this point. It comes courtesy of @harms.sahota, who is confused about the best way to mix tailoring with sportswear. According to the traditional codes of tailoring, this is an act of sartorial subversion. But don’t take that to mean you shouldn’t do it. Rules, after all… well, you know the rest.
