Anyone want to buy my KW tiebar? Was taking pictures to show the level of awesomeness and 'unsnagability' and snagged my KW Grenadine.
$30 shipped. (I know it's not the right place for it but we did JUST talk about it)
Since we're talking about it...these are some new fall 2013 releases from Brooks Brothers Black Fleece line. I like these a lot. Thom Browne is the designer if you're wondering. The proportions may not be to everyones liking, but I appreciate there pattern choices and their willingness to play a bit with traditional menswear norms.

I have an unlined 3 fold (maybe 4 fold) grenadine, from Hober. It was an experiment, done against David's advice. It's interesting, but feels way too delicate and doesn't drape spectacularly. The knot, however, is amazing.
As far as ads, all I get are charity ads. Tons and tons of them. Right now, Earthshare.org
Honestly, it looks like they're falling down because they're a size too large. Either that, or they're low-rise and baggy.
Big words from the man with one pair of decently fitting trousers, I know, but I'm calling 'em like I see 'em. I wonder if a silhouette with more of a waist on the jacket and a wider lapel might be good for you, too. Between the slim-lapel, low waist-suppression jacket and the trousers, your top half looks rather heavy. If you're going to wear your jackets like this, then don't get the legs tapered too much -- it'll throw the proportions off.
Combination is not bad, though I might reach for a BD here, and this is a good place for a plain white linen (or cream silk) PS. I like the shape of the shoes quite a bit -- may I ask for deets on those?
Thanks for the link! Nice shoes indeed...
