During the summer, winter and spring breaks, I tutor a kid who goes to boarding school in the US. His mom recently treated my wife and I to lunch. She had been wanting to meet my wife for a while, and so when she did, she presented my wife with a $700 Tory Burch purse. This is what mom's buy the wife of their son's tutors here in Korea. So Rudals is lucky to get away with only spending 3k on his own wife's purse.   She hasn't purchased anything for me. Though as I am an...
Ties that would work well with what you wear:  and something you should experiment with as you are going to be working on shifting one or two items out of UCBD territory (an awesome endeavor on your part): Also, it's half off if your wife asks. Though only two are left. Looks like beautiful linen. If I wore more white shirts, I'd be all over it. Accurate colors.
@Henry Carter has been Noodle Thread Certified for a while now. Speaking of, HC, why haven't you posted your Noodle Thread Qualification Certificate on your website yet?   Edit: Since we are counting HC ties, I have 8. I really feel like he's under represented in my collection given how much I like him and his wares. 9 from Howard Yount. 6 from Panta. 13 from Hober. HC should be above Yount imo. I'll need to do something about that shortly.   (Other SF Family members,...
I'm going to try a jeans, jacket, tie fit tomorrow. I'm hoping for something less than total failure, but the odds are stacked against me. I have two jackets that might work, one a mid blue linen wool, the other a brown tweed herringbone. It's too warm for tweed, which leaves me with the mid blue. The only non "dad wash" jeans I own are pretty dark...much darker than the jacket. If I were to wear boots, the only ones which would work are pebble grain, which are F/W and not...
That composite thread is useful as all hell. 
Need this thread's help:   Could y'all point me in the direction of interviews with tailor's that y'all enjoyed reading and let me know why you liked them (or what would have been better)?
Change out the square and pants and you might have something. The shirt and jacket work for that tie. If you had light to medium blue wool trousers, I think it would be an excellent look for a difficult tie.
That's so elegant. How much fun do you have putting together the dummy outfits and taking pictures? Seems like it would be a lot, though I don't know if it would get tiresome after a while.
Your mom clashes in my head You need a plain suit. [/wayrnrealtalk] Agreed on both counts, though I'm not sure too plain would be the way to go. Something flannel or with a good amount of texture would work. I think double breasted or a three piece would be best, something which hides a lot of the tie. I've seen it mentioned a few times, but with really large scale patterns, you don't want too much of the tie showing so as to avoid overwhelming the fit as a whole. I have a...
