I can't walk in any store I know and buy a single piece of clothing besides socks of the rack which will fit me nicely, not even talking very nice to perfectly, and you look like that in OTR suits? Life is unfair.
Hopefully one day you'll be in a hurry, both hands busy and you'll ask your wife to tie your tie for you and she will punish you with a windsor knot everybody at work will laugh and point fingers at you for.

Seriously, so much jealousy swelling in me right now frown.gif you know I love you, man!

Dr. Evil did not have a beard! He needs to find a hairless cat though. Now THAT would be epic.

The beginning of a new week, and of a new cycle of suits (much to the joy of my dry cleaner).

My shoe and sock selection are, I believe, quite Spoo-esque - purple socks and C & J Edgwares

Suit, shirt, and PS - BB
Tie - Charvet
Cufflinks - Toledano work (i.e. damascened iron) cufflinks from the gift shop of the Palace Hotel, Madrid
Shoes - C & J, as noted above

Nice pose. I'm just as interested in the books on the shelves as I am in the suit.

Thanks for the comments,

Speaking as someone who grew up in Georgia I can tell you that while you may have good intentions so many people use that flag as a emblem of bad intentions as blatant racism that it overwhelms any possible connotations. Did men fight and die honorably while in the Confederate Army? Yes. Does that outweigh hundreds of years of slavery followed by generations of segregation, Jim Crow and the actions and hate speech of White "Supremacist' groups? No. In any case, if I were a young man starting out in business I would not want a photograph of me proudly displaying a Confederate flag floating around on the Internet-it could come back to haunt you, particularly if you wind up in a position of authority someday. But that is not likely to happen if you keep wearing ties like that...

Many of those hundreds of years of slavery and generations of segregation and Jim Crow laws took place while the south was part of the United States of America. You going to stop waving the stars and stripes too?

Hey, this is about identity politics, not logic.

Here is a little more prepubescence for you that actually shows my tie vs lapel width:

SS, another tip you might want to try - you'll look a bit nattier if you don't have your tie bar perpendicular to your tie.

As someone who also grew up in GA I too think you run the risk of being camped in with a group of racists. Personally I see nothing wrong with the flag and think more of harmless drunken hillbillies than I do of bigots with bad intentions. That being said, I would also never proudly display that flag or use it as a source of pride. I wore a confederate flag tank top as a sweater vest once but I paired it with a bow tie and Burberry patterned pants (just to ensure I/it would never be taken seriously). Man, typing that reminds me what a different time college was...

I think we all have a lot more invested in 200+ years of American history than four years of what was essentially a failed succession attempt.

I am sure the amount of Americans who find the Stars and Stripes offensive is miniscule vs. the amount of Americans who find the Rebel flag offensive.

The brand name is Punto, and I found them at my local Syms - who knew?
