 Don't the Walt and Rudy have the same rise?
  LBM and Epaulet
 Well done! I've never been able to figure out how to wear a paisley tie effectively. You do it very well here. A reward well deserved!
  Walts usually already have enough fabric in the thighs and seat to let them out to a Rudy-esque fit. It won't be perfect, and stitching might show on light-colored cotton Walts, but I've had success doing this in the past. I believe Mike has as well. I let out all my linen Walts, for instance. The Walt fits me fine, but I like the extra room in a linen pant.
Up for sale is a beautiful Polo Ralph Lauren suit, made in Italy by Corneliani in a moderate weight, three-season, textured wool in a charcoal shadow glen plaid with a blue windowpane. This suit is gorgeous, and I'm only selling it because it just doesn't fit me in the shoulders. I've worn it four to five times, and it's in excellent condition with only slight signs of wear.

@leftofthedial   Matt, it's tough to see you go!

Enjoy Atlanta, and hope we'll all get to hang for your next NYC visit.

 lol A+. Do you have any pics of the navy raw silk in your back pocket, perchance? I'm completely on the fence about that tie. I'm wondering if it'll be as versatile/significantly different from my navy piccola grenadine, also from Vanda. Do you think it's warm-weather only?
 Terrific. Is that the Deep Red Raw Silk tie?
