O, how quickly they forget.

Back when Phat Guido did it everybody swooned, which is what inspired me to post this sprezz masterpiece in one of our weekly challenges:

I'm stunned that it hasn't caught on.

It serves the same purpose as a tie clip.

+1 not normally a hat guy, but I like it. I like your fits generally, Kai.

It is actually a sterling silver collar pin from Ralph Lauren that comes in handy for my club collars as well. I prefer it over a tie bar personally but different strokes for different folks.

Orgetorix, I really like the fit of the jacket and the jacket in general, and I think the shirt works well with it.  I think the flower clashes a bit with the texture and style of the jacket, though.  Also, it seems as if the top-half of the outfit is at odds with the bottom half.  Without the jacket the blues would look boring but fine. With the jacket, the cuffed pants seem a bit formal and the loafers seem a little dark.  Are the pants are navy (can't tell, might be dark grey?)?  I would go with shoes in browns or burgundy to tie in the browns of the jacket, even though some conservative people dislike the idea of navy trousers with brown shoes.  P.S., your PS looks like it's drowning.

Google "blanket pin" and you can have them in your choice of lengths. Cheap.
