You need some therapy to rid you of your phobia against visible knots. Seriously.   Or just quit buying laced shoes. You could spend your life in monks, chelseas and loafers.

 Thanks, that's interesting. I didn't know they had a Twitter account.
 How do you know this?
 Claghorn, could you explain in words why you like the third, striped tie in the unspoilered picture but not the other striped ties in the same picture?  
 What is a "silver sole"?
I'm sure I could think of something more useful, but just to be ridiculously decadent when I don't actually have to consider practicalities: a New & Lingwood silk dressing gown (£1850, and it is by far not their most expensive one)       or a Derek Rose silk pyjamas (£595, reduced from £700):  
 Why wouldn't you want a black tie? A black grenadine would give a bit of contrast to the suit (thanks to the texture), if that's what you are looking for.
Thanks for bumping. This was well worth reading. I just wish the missing images could be re-inserted.
