Tie is not as shiny/light as it appears in the first picture. Suit is a gray/brown.

 

That knot is....uhhhh....a tad on the large side. Especially given the 3 piece.

Holdfast, I would give you a thumbs up, but there is no crotch grab. Sorry. devil.gif

Also, if it's not just the lighting, the trousers and jacket don't contrast enough. I thought it was a suit at first until I looked closer and was about to grumble about the colour of the shoes as usual. But paler grey flannel trousers, a different tie (and a normal pair of socks, but whatever on that as they're rarely seen IRL anyway) and I'd have liked this.

thanks, HF. might be time to let it go.

i have this problem every time i post this combo, the lighting is very hard to get right. especially on the full fit pic, using my iphone with a self timer. here is a far more accurate representation of the contrast in both color and fabric.



either way, i do need a pair of paler gray flannel trousers.

i like the socks. smile.gif

Well I agree that they are awesome but it it takes over your outfit and doesn´t do the shoes justice.

Yeah, about that crotch grab.....if you're going to take a picture of a 'crotch grab' please make sure you have a crotch worth showing off. It looks like you have a handful of cloth...

Why do you think I wear nice suits? I gotta make up for it somehow.

Thanks. Given the spread of the collar, I went with a half-Windsor, which I still thinks makes sense. But, the waistcoat does tend to "push" the tie up a bit, as well as showing less shirt which highlights the tie more. Perhaps I will just keep the half-Windsor but cinch it a but tighter/smaller.

I was just quoting George Costanza in case you missed that reference.

 

But to answer your question, I hate two button collar bands. I blame in equal amounts my love for thick buttons and my lack of fine motor skills for this. The small buttons on my shirts are usually 14 ligne x 3,5mm. those are a pain in the hindquarters to button close next too each other. My collar band would leave enough space for two small buttons, since I too belong to the cervixes longiusculus, but I always opt for a regular big one; the fastened tie does the rest.

 

but yeah, judging collar preferences without knowing the shape of the corresponding face is rather pointless.

That's southern style done well.

Flannel + gingham would be a little uhoh.gif if it weren't for the fact that you kept everything else very conservative - block stripe tie, white linen square.

And the patch pockets bump it up from good to really good.
