Been there, Spoo. It gets no easier when they turn teenagers.

I love this. The precise opposite of that which I would like to achieve. smile.gif

Victor: Looking good, how tall are you? The first picture makes you look somewhat stocky which gives me hope in being a shorter man myself. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Spoo: Looks good but its subdued compared to your normal self.


Thank you!

In the photo in full growth made ​​today selected a bad  angle.

The camera was down to the ground. Therefore, the figure looks shorter in this photo.
The result was a silhouette of a slightly compressed vertically.

I seem lower than it actually is (my height 181 cm)

It turned a funny photo. biggrin.gif

Spoo...this phase of having your tie not wide enough to balance the lapels continues, and I also think the knot is too small for the collar. Would it KILL you to do a Windsor once in a while? Or maybe someone will invent an air pump that will inflate ties to greater width and fullness for outfits such as these. Nice pieces all around though.

Who are you? The tie's width is fine. When has this become a huge rule anyway? Why? Smaller ties than lapels have been around way longer than this rule otherwise bibs would be more appropriate these days. Windsor knots? Pssh...

I don't look at it as a rule, I look at it as a question of balance. Just like I think a wide tie with a Double Windsor knot would look out of synch with a slim cut suit with ultra-narrow lapels.

Yeah, that is the standard response too. I think saying Spoo should have a wider tie in the above photo is like OCD ultra nit picky. I mean .5" is close enough. Otherwise it is a dickey. Windsor knots just remind me of men who are overly concerned. In my mind a man who ties a windsor knot is also getting his eyebrows threaded and hand manicures. Very dainty.

"It was tied with a Windsor knot. Bond mistrusted anyone who tied his tie with a Windsor knot. It showed too much vanity. It was often the mark of a cad."

I'd bet Spoo gets brows threaded (or tweezed) and/or manicures. I don't do those things, but I don't think they're "dainty" either. BTW, I think his tie/lapel ratio has been good and the FIH knots are thick enough for his collars (although in today's full length shot it looks small, the close-up shows the ratio is fine).

hey now, nothing wrong with taking care of yerself. I get manicures about every other saturday. and a tweezed well maintained brow is much better than a f*ckin bush up there. foo.gif
