You have a fashionable event to go to and you have to wear a suit but you just don't feel like doing the shirt and tie thing, a fantastic solution is wearing a Chinese Collar Suit
or as properly called a Nehru collar suit. Chinese collar suits are usually suits that have a jacket with no lapel whatsoever and button all the way to the top with Chinese style collar. The suits first got their name when they basically mimicked the simple attire that the Chinese Revolutionary peasants under Mao Tse Tung were wearing duing the 1950s. They wore simple banded collar black outfits and there was no discerning rank among them. Since there is no tie visible on mens suits that come with a Chinese style collar, there is no other distraction visible except the color and fabric of the suit jacket. It almost provides a wall of fabric in a way that your classic style two button or three button business does not.
Although they are different, they are clean looking but stylish at the same time. Some Chinese style collar suits come with eight buttons on the front in pairs of two. They are usually made of solid color fabric that you can wear with your favorite dress shoes. Most people that wear a suit with a Chinese collar will wear a nice solid color mock neck type shirt underneath so they still look put together and will be comfortable as well. Like I mentioned earlier wearing a Chinese collar fashion suit is for a stylish event and certainly not for any work or business environment. So now you have another fashion possibility for your stylish wardrobe.
