The common item from the last few pages.. KNIT TIE!

Definitely not part of the budget fit day.. Bottega Veneta tie clip alone is a 1000 clams

This thing costs USD 1,000? I don't mind paying that sum for a SC or so, but for a tie clip? C'mon... you're kidding. No, of course, you're not. You know, in my business we use to say "there aren't 1,000 dollar prostitutes, there are only 1,000 dollar suitors." My translation might not be proper but I guess you get the picture...

I know I'm supposed to look cheap, but do I look cheap enough?

Suit - Hickey-Freeman, bought at Syms, originally $1495.00, marked down to $499, then reduced for the semi-annual bash sale to $399, then bought using a coupon worth $100 off any purchase totalling $400 or more - with tax and alterations - $340

Shirt - Lewin - bought as part of a lot of four for 100 GBP (minus VAT, plus shipping) - about $40.

Tie - bought by a friend as a present while on a visit to Australia - cost - $25 AUD - equal (at the time) to $12.50

Pocket Square - Robert Talbott, bought on sale at Century 21 - $8.00

Belt - Polo Ralph Lauren, via Syms - $20.00

Cufflinks - from the Met Museum - on sale - 21.60 (including members' discount of 10%)

Socks - brand name Punto, via Syms - $12.00

Total, for contest purposes - $454.10

Not included in the total:

Alden calfskin split-toe loafers - bought on sale from the Alden Shop in NYC - $115

Camel's hair overcoat - Joseph Abboud, via Syms - $75 (on end-of-season clearance)

Cashmere/wool cap - Brooks Bros. - bought on sale, but cost unremembered ($50, maybe?)

Woven wool uni-style striped scarf - Brooks Bros. - ($40-$50 - I can't remember which)

Blue silk jacquard scarf, lined with navy blue cashmere - New & Lingwood - Not a Bargain, but very handsome.

One thing I'd like to add is the camera position that makes you look down. Compared to the pic in your avatar this angle gives your face an unflattering view.

Today's tie was picked for two reasons - first, for its cost (minimal), and second, because I am going to a office party this evening at which there will be dancing, and I wanted to wear a tie that I didn't care if I sweated into.

As for camera angle, in my current (and very makeshift) setup, the camera needs to be at mid-chest height in order to get a proper full-length shot of me. My face is also falling .

Glad that you like the cufflinks, and yes, the Met is a great source for interesting links (more interesting when they go on sale, too!).

When you are rocking the $1000 collar pin cum tie bar, you can smoke your Cubans and pity the budget crowd. Looks awesome, G.
