Spoilers good Sir, use them, in abundance if you will.

OOPS, sorry, didn't think of that. I did delete the pictures that didn't relate to my replies though, making the reply shorter.

As hard as this may be for your brain to comprehend, I wasn't trying to troll, but rather to give my honest opinion of the outfits that these gentlemen had posted.

cheers, wasn't sure bout putting the brown of the tie with the green of the square -  think the 2nd pic is the kinda thing u mean tho, with a stronger shirt

like them!-  looking thru Flusser and others, grey plaid suits get the 007 treatment a lot - white shirt black wool tie linen square

If the shirt and tie are going to be patterned, probably need a plain white pocket square to balance it out.

 

 

thx for the wise words everyone -  I'm inclined to agree AF,  -   beyond 3, as Flusser says, it's reward and risk .  but I've seen a few posters here do it well

Really cool. I think if you go as far as you have into the Slick category you need French cuffs.

I could use some help on colors. I can't tell if this works or I made a mess of it. I redid my tie after I saw this. The tie is wool an the pocket square is a red/yellow/orange silk. I can't tell if this all goes or if it's too chaotic. I'm leaning toward's chaotic and that I should have stuck to a white linen pocket square.

Thanks, it's one of my favorites though sometimes I choose too many small scale patterns with it.

Thanks for the kind words to all who commented (in particular: Kai, RDiaz, Victor, and clarinetplayer). 

TB, I do use shoe trees for all my shoes. I think the creases are a little more pronounced in the photo than irl (I'm curling my toes to the camera lest my feet look oddly foreshortened by said camera).

They are shell AE MacNeils.

Great outfit, color and fabric wise, so please use a proper tie length... Please?
The tie. It's WAY too long. First of all, no one wants to see the short end of the tie, so hide that stuff somewhere. Secondly, you don't want the tip of the tie to extend below the top of the belt. Why? If it's too short, it looks sloppy, if it's too long, it gives the visual impression of an arrow pointing at your crotch. Not very flattering and just plain sloppy. 
Love the outfit and the color combo, tie length, not so much. That should be an easy fix, though.

THIS IS PERFECT!!! Me haz a happy!!!
Really like the outfit. 
Having the suit and pants in the same material is usually no problem, it this case though, given that it's such an "active" material, seems to be a questionable choice. I'd never wear it, but whatever makes you happy biggrin.gif



As a side note, How short are you guys that you when you tie your ties, thin end is the same length as the "business end"???I usually just end up with maybe 5-6 inches, and then the business end of the tie reaches the top of my belt. 


What's your deal with tie length, and what makes you think the detail shot of my fit that you posted gives you an accurate idea of how long I've tied mine?
