As a musician, I often ponder the relationship between the personal style of musicians and the style of music they create. Take Miles Davis for instance, here he is wearing MC Casual at a recording session in 1954.     Here's his interpretation of a fairly classic (1930) tune around that time. Notice how he states the melody. Sure there's some embellishment, but he sticks pretty close to it. This to me matches his classic clothing choices in the photo. His laid-back...

Small-time lurker here.   I've put a $50 cap on ties for myself (which is kind of pushing it), but I'm dealing with champagne taste on a beer budget. However, thanks to diligently checking saved ebay searches I've managed to build my small collection with Turnbull & Asser, Charvet, and Isaia.  Maybe once I build up the rest of my wardrobe I'll put more money into ties.
