You can't get them all at once, but you can scroll through a tab that will take you to the next image and you can get the tags that way. A little more labor intensive, but what else are the other options really?

First post, be gentle. Just bought a suit for work over the summer, along with some shirts and ties. Calvin Klein slim fit medium grey suit, CK slim fit white dress shirt, Brooks Bros tie. This is really my first endeavor into buying dress/professional clothes. What do you guys think of the look? How does the suit look like it fits? Sorry for shitty quality. How do you guys get such good shots, anyway? I do own an actual camera other than my phone, but I couldn't get the detailed shots like you all.

^^ fine for work but aaaakkk that tie knot. Get a four in hand up in that bitch, look pretty good otherwise. Throw a white pocket square in there too, TV fold.

That collar isn't wide enough for a windsor to look good. It looks way too big compared to the collar. With a spread collar, half-windsor is acceptable. But with the collar you posted, four in hand will be smaller and so will fit better with the collar. Just try it, trust me. FiH is easy as hell to tie anyways; easiest knot. Better learn it even if you don't end up using it.

Yes. Now jujst tighten that up and perfect the knot and dimple. Can see my pic earlier on this page for what a decent FIH should look like.
post #36593 of 37075
Yeah, that dimple is tricky. Thanks for the help, I definitely think it looks better after playing with it.

After my relative success on Friday at assimilating the SF gemeinschaft/mindset/groupthink, I've opted to ignore such principles this morning, changing my mind as to necktie. (Note also that NYC is currently in a state of monsoon - today's footwear is "beater" wear.)

The extra photo will show the original selection of tie, but I am simply tired and bored of solids - do forgive me.

FWIW, then , and have at it, gentlemen.

I like the patterned tie with the fit, Crusty. As long as the PS is plain

Sadly no full shot, they all came out blurry and I'm not getting dressed again to take pics. Just grey trousers down low and normal black oxfords. I'm enjoying this tie though.
Yes nice tie.

Yes the 4 in hand looks much better. I'm not over keen on the high notches on the lapels on that suit.

Whilst I'm not overly taken with the tie you went for, I think you made the right choice out of the two. The plain one looks a little shiny and bland. Have you considered getting this suit slightly waisted - it looks a little boxier than some of your suits, and the last one you had altered was a definite improvement (note: the fit of my suits could never be described as great ).
