I picked up a tie because I'm a sucker for skinny repp ties.   As a side note, why is the park and bond inside out polo only $95? Aren't their polos usually around $150? And the two oxfords are marked "P&B exclusives", but they look like all the other BoO oxfords I've seen.

The pants do look more tapered in that photo than they actually are, but I'm a young guy and have already gotten a couple grandpa jokes from my...
First WAYWT post. This look might be a little too MC, but I never get a chance to dress up.  
I picked up this suit from them a couple months ago. I have very broad and sloping shoulders shoulders and it'd been difficult to find something that fit me well OTR. I paid $700 for it, overall I'm pretty happy with it. Fully canvased, functional kissing button cuffs (which are really fun to use), construction seems pretty solid, and the only alterations I made were to have the pants hemmed half an inch (not seen in these pictures). I'd say it'd be hard to find a MTM...
  I know, but I always see them listed as oxfords: http://www.gilt.com/sale/men/generic-man-2917/product/90695869-generic-man-naval-lace-up-oxfords
