What if you had to reach something high up and the lapel puckered? I found a...

Well, now it all makes sense. You may not wear velvet blazers to school.
Never tried this knot before seeing this thread, but darn, even my cheap ties are pulling up into a good dimple. The only downside I'm seeing is that it does tend to pull up almost too perfectly. But I'd much rather spend a minute or two tussling to make it less perfect than trying to get a half-windsor to dimple at all.
My overall best shirt buys have been: 1. Nordstrom Rack. I buy for quality and neck size, then have my tailor fit them to me. Shirts run from $7 (clearance) to $50.00 (Canali, Zenga, etc. My tailor charges $22.00 each to bring in the sides and narrow the shoulders, shortening the sleeves at the same time--I negotiated a quantity discount since I've had him do about 25 shirts recently 2. Charles Trywhitt slim fit. They fit well with no alterations. For...

1. A pair of cowboy boots. I'm not a cowboy and live in the city. 2. Several cheap ties. After I bought my first Robert Talbot I can no longer stomach cheap ties. 3. 3 or 4 checked shirts, but with french cuffs. The cuffs look stupid on a casual pattern. 4. A shirt with a design that looks like the static electricity pattern you see on those psychedelic lightening lamps when you touch the glass. WTF was I thinking? 5. A pair of J & M wingtips. Calling them...
