Overall, I think that guys in this thread are going a bit overboard with the wool ties, especially for those currently above the equator. (This one was only a double.)

Thanks. I agree. Fortunately, no one I know IRL notices so it only effects my SF cool meter. Point taken though. I kind of thought it was wrong this morning, but more so because I chose to wear a wool tie in the summer (although it barely reached 70 today). I didn't even think about the wool tie being wrong w the City suit. I will keep that in mind.

I took the pics in my office but was on my way to the vineyard and my wife said no tie.

I see zero wrinkles on that bird. She looks perfectly taut. Smartly done on all fronts, but mainly the bird.

+1. BB wrinkle-free is to be avoided at all cost imo.

Acrid - Looks great, hope you guys are having a blast. Trust me on L'Etoile.
Lufty - best fitting suit to date. Where is Ethan in your pic?
Vox - Im sure you looked good today.
Crusty - Really glad to see you back, keep it up.
Nii - Where were you?
AJV - Great debut, please post more.
Patrick - Sharp lapels bro. Well done. Glad you left the boots off lol.

First time in a suit for a conference. Posting it because I'd like some inputs regarding the tie width. It's 2.75" wide. Too narrow? Or passable? What would be the acceptable width range in my case? P.S. BB in-store tailor seemed to mess the sleeve length. Should I have them brought in about 1/4''?

Nice Roster. How about some color descriptions. Do you MTM and/or off the peg ?

Experimenting with a 7" hem on my trousers. I think it's a little bit too slim, making my size 10.5s look boatish. 8" is probably the better opening size for me.

It's not the narrow sleeves silly! It's the huge biceps.

There is nothing wrong with your tie except the knot. Re-do it with a bit of flair and a little dimple and i am sure it will look real cool Bud.

That's a near fatal amount of both flair and dimple. What are you looking at?

Thanks guys for all the comments, nice to get such a warm welcome...

Someone asked, the shirt is made by Schoffa, a Finnish label.

No one other than us would see this issue, so it's not a real world problem.

Thanks. I think there's maybe a little bit too much padding as you said in the shoulders.

However, I normally use that suit (/coat) only at work / office, so I let myself think that it's ok by bringing a little taste of "power dressing" to my look
