If you are saying that he should not wear knit ties with worsted suiting, that is one thing, but if you are going to wear a knit, you are pretty much going to always wear it with lapels almost twice its size.
Which brings me to my second observation, a lot of you guys are busy looking at the trees and missing the forest. I know that this is a clothing site and people like discussing the details but the site has become a bit too obsessed with every single little detail of an outfit. Everything does not need to be perfect, I would posit that perfection should not be a goal of dressing well. Braddock is very well dressed here, he is basically wearing three solid pieces (suit/shirt/tie) but it pops because he has a great shirt collar, a tie that you notice due to its texture and a nicely cut suit. The suit is not old fashioned in any sense, people have just become accustomed to these modern jackets were the middle button is around your chest.
The overall outift is great. Nothing superflous in terms of accessories or colors. I would have gone with black balmorals but then the outfit would lose its feel of nonchalance. For all I know Braddock spent 6 hours putting this outfit together but to me it looks like someone that gives a lot of thought to what he buys and then just throws on whatever he likes in his closet, without worrying about every single little thing. A cliche but here is a guy wearing nice clothes, not nice clothes wearing a guy.

QFT....

So, you jump off a great height without a cape, and it looks like this:

But then, you put a cape on. You jump from the exact same place, but with a cape on, and then it looks like this:

Do you see what I mean? The cape gains you a bit of horizontal distance.
It's an important advantage, don't you think?
About how many horizontal feet (or meters, if you prefer) does the cape give you?

Better yet, if it's made from 'memory fabric', you can soar across the Hong Kong skyline with greatest of ease.

Black is the only approved choice here.

This thread needs to get back on track.

Here are just a few photos of me from past year. I'm not a model or to be considered good looking by any means, but these are my accumulation of ordinary shots. I hope you to enjoy it in the benefit of our collective interest in MC.

I will also post some better photos tomorrow from my photo archive(photo of other people, of course).

I am wondering by the way how your world ( that of the most forumusers) looks like ?

Is it only about Wall Street and bussiness suits ?

In such a contekst I can understand the reactions a lot better.

And is it only US, Canada and Britain ?

Not only those 3 countries, we have a big Australian contingent on here also, in fact we have a whole Australian members thread and I've done an Australian Members special edition tie for the Aussies too. I think, on the mens clothing forum it's the only country themed thread.

There are also quite a few Europeans outside of Britain on here as well. It;s just pretty much none of them wear capes.... Welcome aboard anyway.
