yep, I meant Cappelli's is self tipped and 9 cm, and I prefer both things over mine, which is 8 cm and untipped smile.gif
still it's a more casual and different touch, that isn't bad.

Everything is way too matchy. First off, don't wear that shirt with, well, anything. Second, the tie matches the coat too much. Wear a light blue shirt and a different tie.

RDiaz, this is great. You've been improving a lot--well done!

I feel you on the ties smile.gif

Agreed. Honestly, I'm not a big fan of the jacket. Not only is it too short, but it's too much like a suit jacket with that pattern and the slash pockets.

same crap different day.

I assume the shirt will get little love.

I actually like the shirt. Just not with a jacket and tie.

I actually like the shirt, but not with that jacket. For a graph check that large and bold, you need a dark complementary color to balance it - your impulse to cover most of the shirt with a navy V-neck sweater tries to bring things into balance. A navy blazer without the sweater would have done the same thing, IMHO, and allowed more of the shirt to show. (Conversely, the sweater could be simply there for insulation - form does occasionally follow function, even in these threads satisfied.gif ).

This is prob your best look only thing I would change is the foo puff. It looks too precious on you and doesn't fill the breast pocket adequately

Self tipped is whe the tie is still tipped, but in the same fabric as the tie (see below) and regular tipped is when it's made out of a different fabric, usually satin or something similar to save coin. Of course you may already know all this but I thought it could be a lost in translation moment. Great fit though, love the trousers.

 

 Question from a Noob: Just what constitutes a good tie? I understand it's a very broad question but I've bought a few I thought look good from thrift stores so I could practice tying them. I've just bought a light and dark blue, a couple of red, a brown and a black tie.

 I like the jacket and all around looks like a good fit. The pattern stuff the others mention is probably on the money.

 

 UC: Impeccable as always!

Hmmm...  I do like how it doesn't fill the whole pocket width confused.gif

 

It's sticking out too much, though.

Been away for quite a while due to work overload. Things are slowly returning to a normal state here, which means most likely some more time for self-photos again. Full-body shot is a little fuzzy, still barley enough daylight here during the day for natural light shots.

pretty much this.

anden - i know its late, but i would have gone tieless. the tie was not bad, but i dont think it enhanced the fit. without would have made for a cool look imo.

rdiaz - great fit. yo can wear that tie everyday if you like, its great.

Thanks U_C. That was what I had in mind, it is cold today, but I was trying to keep the shirt quieter. The other dirty secret was, I'm in class for 55 minutes and then the lab and committee meetings the rest of the day, so the tie was coming off. I thought I could swing the shirt with the jacket and no tie. Jacket pattern is pretty subtle IRL.
