Adonis DNA in your jacket tailoring today, I see, Spoo - quite a built up-chest I think the necktie has a nice hand, as far as I can tell. I think that for some of the lapels you wear, like today's, you could commission a 4" width - even that doesn't teeter over into the kipper zone, I've found Interesting socks, by the way - do you mind if I ask who the maker is?
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.

And now back to regularly scheduled programming. The rectangular-sized cufflinks turn the volume down compared to the oval ones you normally sport. You have to move further up and notice the paperclip tie pin to experience Crusty's sartorial whammy bar.
Friday - 70 degrees in NY. Monday - major snowstorm. Anyhow, first wearing of new tie by my new Mystery Bespoke Tiemaker. Fabric is a 350 warp Vanners silk, unlined 6 fold. For more pics, see my post in the "Recent Purchases" thread. Whatcha think? [SPOILER]
Nice. I am happy there are others in the pink shirt brigade.

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.[/quote]
Was planning to wear a new pair of grey flannel trousers tomorrow but wondered how the SF would view it now that it is "officially" spring. However, I see a few postings with winter garb. I am trying to squeeze a few more weeks out of the winter clothing.
You can always count on me for a positive comment with almost anything that has purple in it. I like the bright colors, and now that we are in spring I think it is especially acceptable. However, take it with a grain of salt as I have not earned any status of having style on this forum!
