Unfastening the top button of the shirt and loosening the tie? Fastening all the buttons of the cardigan, including the bottom one? Pairing a baseball cap with a button-down shirt and a tie? All of these variables go against convention. Judging by the social media reaction, some people still love the look. Others are scratching their heads.
