 I think we agree in that morbid obesity doesn't really make most clothes look good, but that's far from the average WAYWRN poster. And with the right tailoring, even a doughy build can carry beautiful clothes - the man inside just won't look attractive or athletic, but the clothes will look great. Winston Churchill is a good example.

If people exercised more, they would perhaps look more attractive, not necessarily better. A lot of people here enjoy the beauty of tailored clothes themselves. And a better body does not make clothes look better, it makes the person look better.
[[SPOILER]]  Bluchers look a bit weird in this otherwise 100% English look, no? Or is that flannel?
Tweed (faux or not) looks great with jeans IMO. I would have liked Vox's fit better if the jacket was less structured, more sporty looking, but I think it's good anyways. I'm wearing a similar ensemble today: tweed jacket, blue OCBD, levi's 527 and derby boots
First fit is wool challis tie and madder square, second is silk tie (wet) and same square. That madder is slightly wet, but much less than a plain silk square, which is what makes it great with wool ties IMO. BTW I know both fits are terrible, they're just illustrative pics.
 I lol'dBTW, I have a couple large paisley madder squares I bought from Cappelli. They weren't on the site but he did have them on display at his atelier. They're small in size but very nice, I believe Shibumi was carrying the same squares:I also have a large print tie from Brooks Brothers Makers, which Manton will probably hate with all of his soul:
Cappelli has awesome madder ties and squares. I miss his store so much, it's been a year already. If you can't find something you like at his website, you could always email Patrizio, he sure carries more stuff than what is there.
Oh. I thought of them as sportcoat / casual suit ties. Guess they work with a city suit in the right context, though something still looks off to me... perhaps they don't work with all city suits, or maybe it also depends on the tie itself? Some of mine have quite big neats which I wouldn't wear with a worsted, solid, flap pocket suit...
I think it works with such a suit because it's not one of those fluffy wool ties... Manton, would you use wool challis with a city suit? I'm always tempted, but my eyes tell me it looks off, so I kinda trust my own aesthetic judgement...
