I've started wearing ties to work once in a while:
Cheers, it's a wool/cashmere mix by Massimo Dutti. Probably their only men's item that's good value for money. As I understand it, a cardigan has buttons on the front, a sweater/jumper doesn't.
Wearing a combination of items I haven't worn before, so I thought I'd post a fitpic. The shirt is a light grey flannel.
 Just walk around while pulling on your jacket. I'll bet you good money that this picture exaggerates that particular feature tremendously. 
He combines a city navy pinstripe suit and pin dot tie with the most country waistcoat ever. It's probably not even that tight fitting, but you can obviously see he's pulling on his jacket. The pose and outfit look very contrived to me. Like a guy who wanted to jazz up his work suits by wearing a random waistcoat he found. The escaping hanky is the cherry on this affected cake.
 Agreed. They're about 4 times as expensive, but they look very nice. I still can't believe these pants were only $80.
 I hate pressing trousers. I always get it wrong and it doesn't line up perfectly, which means there's 2 or more feint creases next to each other. I don't get that logic, why would you repress the crease after each wear if you want your clothes to look worn? Does that mean you want your clothes to look crisp for a couple of hours in the morning and then look all wrinkled when you go to meet a client in the afternoon? Anyways, to each his own. I like it and will probably do...
 Yeah, I've seen plenty of single/double pleated cords, some creased and some uncreased. The heavier ones seem to keep their crease relatively well. Mine, unfortunately, do not. I've seen plenty of people on here complain about linen or linen blend fabrics not holding a crease, so this would be the perfect solution for that. You don't really notice it has been stiched, unless I'm standing perfectly still and you're only a feet or two away. Washing won't be a problem, as I...
 Because I like the texture of the farbic, but not how it drapes. This is how they look after just 10 minutes of wearing them: 
 Those moleskin pants look awesome. Is this the way to do it, or is the stitching done differently?
