If not so, why don't you have a try?
Any personal reasons we do not know of?

because spoo is the honeybadger. and, well you know the rest.

I was thinking about a solid, shiny silk tie that picked up one of the stripe colors. With a muted white FC shirt (Really...how can you wear a suit like THAT and not wear links?!?!?!)

not just some time, lots of time, and several trips if you don't live in london or naples (or new york or moscow, i suppose biggrin.gif)

i suppose i could go to knize, but even for great bespoke i'm not spending 8k on a suit, even if i could. no wait, i probably would.

Spoo,15h/day doesn't sound healthy and you're still willing to take pictures of yourself every single morning?

5 of those 15 hours is spent setting up the camera.

My wife takes the pictures, not me. Thats my quiet, introspective, preparing for the internets time.

I really dont see a shiny tie working well with the sheen of the suit...and the stripes are all tones of blue, so I wanted a contrast, not to come off like a castoff from the blue man group.. but Ill play around.

I am liking the jeans. In the business world I am hopping that a more casual dress such as yours begins to become the norm. Thanks for the inspiration!

To me it seems all of those who say who don't go bespoke go Ready To Wear.
Is RTW the same as Off The Rack, only with a few alternations made to the garment or is RTW what I would call Made To Measure?
Because here in Germany there are a lot of MTM offerings and there should be some of them who deliver decent work, shouldn't it?

Bespoke > MTM > RTW/OTR

if you truly were a honeybagder you would not give a shit that you didnt say that instead. teacha.gif

also. since there is something apparently slightly wrong with the balance of your suit, and since we have deduced above that you are not a honey badger. logic therefor proves you do give a shit about this balance predicament. the only solution then is to give me the suit.

you are welcome sir.
