If a man wishes to, or is expected to wear a suit then I think that man should wear a tie. he looks a scruffy mess. Yes if you are a a party, dancing etc or if the weather is very hot of course you will take it off. But a suit without a tie is just Slovenly.
Apart from a function, personally i almost always wear Rugby shirts (would look silly in a Tie). But a suit without a tie is a fashion I don't like. Another thing I don't like is a man in a pair of trousers with a full length formal shirt hanging out. Rugby shirts , T shirts, Polo shirts etc no problem. If anyone doesn't want to wear a tie, no problem. But why bother wearing a suit. Something my wife hates is a man who wears socks with sandals. Apparently they look like a Beatnik (remember them).
I thought beatniks did not wear any socks. would agree that there are some occasions, like a funeral when a tie looks right (though probably only because we expect it to). there are many occasions when a suit, with a tie, is worn for no good reason, other than is expected. The revolting pin-striped suit is an example of an really ugly invention, and reminds me of a butcher's apron
