 You know what I mean, though, right? Everyone always sells a scarlet tartan of some kind for the fall, but I've never seen one quite this arresting. @Epaulet Mike, on another fabric, the Justified & Ancient Oxford Check, how like the Rhino Oxford is it? In terms of weight, hand, etc? Weave looks kind of fine. Also, can't really tell if it's monochrome or if there are browns and blues in the darker part of the check.
 Agreed. I have a few tattersalls just like this and they're among my most versatile and well worn shirts. @Michigan Planner it's not MTO; it's sized, done at the Portugal factory. Gotta say the Steel & Scarlet skies might be a sleeper hit.

 This. Also @RuleOfRescue I'm also 6 foot and wear EP trousers, and I get all my Vanda ties done at 59" (to be precise, 3.25" x 59"). I'm fairly evenly proportioned, with a ~31" inseam giving me no break with most trousers, but if you have a longer torso YMMV. I find that 59" is a great length for me, and gives me room to play around with blade length, depending on tie/fit/mood. If your torso is longer, you could of course try lengthening your ties. Additionally: I tie a...
