It appears to be a cravat.

For a book signing on Rebel Style I am rather surprised to see an utter lack of insolence.

I think Bruce is wearing the London Lounge tie from Charvet. Can anyone confirm?

No, it was a woven shepherd's check.

In the middle photo is that a tab collar? I like them, but in that photo it really makes it look like the collar is to constricted?
Any one else here a fan of the tab?

Looks like a macclesfield in that pic. Can it properly be called that? (In the general sense, not by the strict "made in Macclesfield" definition.)

Boyer can back it up.

And yet reading it gave me a distinct sense of deja lu.

I have yet to see anyone pull off a tab collar. I think it makes most men apper big-headed, and it looks pinched. Same goes for collar pins.

Perhaps LabelKing has in his massive photo archives a photo that illustrates the tab collar in an attractive light?

I think I've seen a picture of a Kabbaz shirt with tab collar, maybe on Tom Wolfe, that looked great because it was more proportioned the way we are used to today. Also in some AA/Esky copies. But I do believe they were meant to be smaller than normal. Dressing the Man has a photo of a well-known socialite wearing one with a tweed suit, IIRC. It makes his head look big, but it's not a bad outfit I think.
