SS, I'm now seeing tie pins (is there a special name for the safety pin type tie pin?) everywhere I look. They seem to be in heavy use in Boardwalk Empire with the better dressed characters.

IrateCustomer: Why bother with the tie? Leaving aside the diamond pattern on the sweater vest (and it would be better left aside), the tie doesn't dress up the combo, it just makes you look like you're working at the upscale hi-fi store or that you're the IT guy trying too hard. Wear something that works with a tie or don't wear a tie.
I have to wear a tie. And since I'm just now starting pick up SCs, I'm trying to rotate sweaters and the like. I know the tie/sweater was going to miss with most folks on here, but its what I wore, so fuck it. As stated it was chilly, but warmed up this afternoon, so half the day was spent sans vest. I wasn't trying to dress up the fit with the tie, but moreso soften the tie up.
Until I get a navy solaro suit, this tie ia going to be be a challenge, and I'm fine with that as its part of the fun.

Well, if you must wear the tie, you get the Official Digmenow My Boss Makes Me Wear This Hall Pass™.post #39559 of 7872411/13/12 at 8:49pmQuote:
I moved out here to Central Cali (what most consider the armpit of Cali) from Baltimore and New York and find that shopping out here is atrocious.. I have to buy online or wait to go back to the east coast a couple times a year when I can to shop.. cant shop in the bay OTR anyways because most of the stuff is made for guys 6 feet and under and a buck fifty and some change and not a guy my size (6"8, 250).. and forget thrift..I don't know where he lives but I can testify to that if he lives around these parts..post #39560 of 7872411/13/12 at 8:51pmpost #39561 of 7872411/13/12 at 8:53pmpost #39562 of 7872411/13/12 at 9:02pmpost #39563 of 7872411/13/12 at 9:03pmpost #39564 of 7872411/13/12 at 9:13pmQuote:Its just called a collar pin, they are widely used in Boardwalk. The dress is half the reason to watch Boardwalk, I can't imagine the bill for costumes.Quote:
When I go hunting I trade my yellow vest in for camo, a deer stand and a cigar. I'm a grass root bumpkin, and Lord knows I'd fall off of a damn horse.post #39565 of 7872411/13/12 at 10:54pmI often wonder whose costume department would be most fascinating to explore, that of Mad Men or that of Boardwalk Empire. I've considered starting a poll. I think my vote would go to BE, but not by much.post #39566 of 7872411/14/12 at 12:39ampost #39567 of 7872411/14/12 at 1:32ampost #39568 of 7872411/14/12 at 1:48ampost #39569 of 7872411/14/12 at 3:23am
