Having lurked here for quite a while and witnessed the shitstorm created by your original Yohji fit pic, I have to say that I appreciate the compromise you've made with this one. I vehemently disagree with some of your opinions on style, but if we still fail to see eye to eye here, I may at least be staring at your forehead. That being said, I would never suggest that my thoughts here be more to you than the musings of an internet stranger, so I'm more than willing to settle at this and say, "lookin' good."
In a related story, I had no idea who the hell Yohji Yamamoto was until you started posting pics, but I recently stumbled upon a boutique of his in downtown La Jolla, near San Diego, and thought to myself, "He is real!" It was actually quite interesting to see it nestled amongst the Brooks Brothers, Jos. A Bank, and Ralph Lauren stores that have set the tone for the area.
You bastards. I am a stubborn, cussed sort of man, but you've got to me. When my father showed me how to do up a tie, and I mis-remembered it, it became the slightly backwards half windsor that has been my ubiquitous and lovely triangular staple for my entire school and professional life. It even attracts comment now and then, my neat little triangle. My business partner, a while back, actually asked me to show him how I do my tie. The only downside has been that, as I'm endowed with an unusually thick neck (to support my big head, there, I'll say it), I tend to need a longer tie, or a clip to hold the little stumpy back of it out of sight.
Then today I picked out a shirt with a narrow-gapped, downward-pointing French-ish collar, rather than the more Anglo-American. lapel-hidden spread . And the SF peer pressure at the back of my brain told me "four-in-hand, asshole". So for the first time, no kidding, in thirty years of wearing a tie, I did. This rakish asymmetry just feels wrong, at least to start with. But I admit, with this kind of collar, it looks...nice. It also leaves enough to tuck the back in without a shiny clip (I wear them, but I don't actually like them much). And when I popped in to Fedex to collect my newest noisy pocket squares (also your fault), the two Filipina chicks waiting next to me, totally gave me the eye.
So, bastards, here I am admitting: in certain limited circumstances, you are right. There, I said it.
