Better learn it even if you don't end up using it.

Better?

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.

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.

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.

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 ).

Proof that PG is human with a slightly out of focus up top, and not optimally lit photo.

It looks eerily like this:

I will make sure I crosspost in that thread
