Thank you, Spoo - you got rid of my midmorning appetite for me. Now I'm good 'til lunch...or next week.

I don't feel nearly as foolish, though, as I would if I were doing this.

I guess I'm sort of wrong in this situation but I find a lot of people here don't think of the circumstances behind a lot of pictures when they start criticizing (jacket pulling at waist when a hand is in pocket, short trousers when someone is in motion, flash exaggerating colors, etc).

I think with the clothes you wear spoo, that you might want to start polishing those shoes with black every other time.

Charcoal suit didn't turn out very charcoal in the pic but you get the idea. ZOMG i know, point collar but I happen to like the shirt, it has a faint gray stripe that works well with burgundy (the cardigan). Retied knot after this pic as well

Good looks today gents.

I need a dark blue polka dot tie. Yours seems nice. Please mail it to me, or at least give me the deets on it.

Cheers Citan. Yes the has a wide self/tonal herringbone stripe to it...it's also 74/26 wool/linen which gives it a nice texture and a slightly more relaxed feel to it.

Thanks acrid. I'd love to send it to you but it's the only one I have
It's a vintage Dior 80/20 poly/silk that I picked up at a charity shop for $2!

Kind of like PandArts this was a cheapy find. One of the few Pre-SF ties I still like. It is a Macy's Club Room tie from their "CR" label (essentially the "younger" line) I like it alot though and found a similar one at BB for much more this fall.

I buy nearly all of my ties second hand. If you are patient, you can find really great stuff for next to nothing. Over the past few months I've picked up Charvet, Ferragamo, umpteen BB, and a Battistoni. None, with the exception of the Ferragamo, were more than $2.

Such a great idea. The second hand scene here is pretty terrible tho. I got a vintage fully canvassed HartMarx grey flannel suit with a real slim cut...and that is about it. No one really sells good stuff here (in the Detroit area) and if they do, you have to buy it RIGHT AWAY. Case in point, I found an amazing 100% cashmere RLPL SC with a light blue and dark blue glen plaid. 38R. Was 200 dollars, but as a student I got 25% off plus whatever sale they had that day. Would have been like 100. Went back a day later because I wanted to wait until my payday, was gone Thanks for the comments tho acrid!
