Great to see you posting again. The yellow socks are such an awesome touch.

Keep glutting then, because it looks great on you. Agreed with a couple of others above; stop apologising for your outfits!

I don't often wear a tie-clip, but this tie is just too long without it, and too thick & wide to knot in any other way to shorten the length. This combination is the reason I don't buy Ricci ties any more. That, and the designs are often ridiculous. I like this one's design though.

The sleeve length is actually fine, that shirt is a bit long and for some reason one shirt sleeve always gets caught up, making the jacket look uneven. I don't know about a blue shirt.....I am not really comfortable mixing a blue shirt with forest green pants.

Part of me hates this thread because I feel so bad about how I dress

Upr Crust this is my favorite ensemble for you that I have seen. While I agree that the ring is a bit much for me, you love creating some noise with your outfits so it works well. I love that tie with that suit and PC

Holdfast I have not seen you look anything but great. Very impressive.


Acrid could we get some details on the sport coat? (unless you mentioned it earlier and i missed it) The color is great!

NYR - I was showing my wife (who is also a teacher) this thread for about 30 minutes last night and she was amazed that you were a teacher and that you dressed so well.

Do you think you command more respect from the kids because you dress so well and look so sharp? I would assume this would help you out in the business world but I'm pretty unaware when it comes to 8th graders. Do they notice how different you look from the other teachers?

You need to expand your horizons. As yesterday's fit shows, you are far too conservative.

Wow, I think millions of women across the world willing to look past his crazy would disagree, but thank you kindly!

Thank you. Yes, as budget allows I'll be adding some spread collars. I need to find some that are as low maintenance as the BB non-iron.

The tie is gorgeous.

Thanks, it is made by Arnold Brant, and is 75% Bamboo. Not sure about the quality, but the fit was good, the fabric is soft and it was practically free (75% off the existing sales price at a Nordstrom Rack = $60 and no alterations required).

Thanks for the comments. As for the ring, when I had it made some 25 years ago, I chose the stone (originally a piece of malachite) unset, and didn't realize how large the stone was going to be when set. (The malachite bit the dust after being dropped on the bathroom floor once too many times, and was replaced with the current piece of lapis lazuli). As it is, the ring has become something of my "emblem".

Those spreads will make a big difference.

This actually rolls more than the pic seems to show. I am a big fan of the 3/2 roll, but not a hard 3 buttoner...at least on me.
