It's raining in NYC, so suit-wearing is out. I've been wearing this combo of SC and trousers for a while - it's due a visit to the dry cleaner's soon, but perhaps it's presentable enough for this thread. Please note the SF-approved touches of robo-pose, and the use of a solid brown tie.

I´ve tried it before and you are correct it does look better. Due to the material however it takes a bit more time to shape the knot correctly and I just didn´t have time this moring
so I just used the Windsor(Which is my usual knot for ties of that shape) and ran out the door as 6 this morning. I know, I know, being late is no excuse for sartorial slobbishness
at least you realize the error. now you must buy 5 ties for forgiveness!
Is it just me? I like Windsor knots, but I don't think they really look good with knit or wool ties.
i tie a half windsor almost exclusively, but i rarely see a full windsor that works. even on a thinner material tie where its not too think, i dont like the shape of the triangle it creates. but thats just me.
