Great SC Pingson!

Sticking with blue on a muggy, rainy day in NYC. I don't see many posts featuring big dots so probably not SF approved neck wear but

it seemed appropriate for this fit.

Why did you opt for peak lapels on that suit? They stand out and seem kinda unnecessary on a SB.

Thanks for all the thumbs up. It's nice to be back here again and will try to post more regularly.

I don't know. It feels like a repp, but the weave doesn't look like a true repp. Got it from Berg and Berg a few years ago, while they still were carrying 9 cm wide ties (they only sell 8cm wide ones now, and that makes me sad frown.gif ). Still, it ties an awesome knot, perhaps the best tie I have in that respect..

Nope, I don't think that tie work here - in fact it's kind of hard to match such a tie at all, the dots are too big I think. I have a very similar tie myself, but it's been hanging in my closet unused for a long time.....

All my suits are RTW, not bespoke. I do not think these lapels are to the point where they're like Tom Ford's notorious suits. "Unnecessary?" Everyone's entitled to their opinion and my opinion is that they're just fine. I would've burned them on my grille if I felt that they "stood out" and were "unnecessary."

Dude, no offense. I was genuinely wondering, because I can understand TF lapels, but see peaks as somewhat strange on such small lapels.

Oh no, no offense taken. I understand your critique but I don't think I just knew any better at the time I was purchasing this suit.

Rudals didn't have a metldown from a critique... IT'S A MIRACLE.

just ribbing ya... 

I do agree the Peak lapels look strange. Perhaps it might be better if they were fully peaked.

Sun & showers today, but thankfully enough sun to justify another summery look. Also, it appears that this has turned into an unofficial knit tie week, with this being my third in a row...

I am not a little girl anymore...LOL. I can take a hit or two now.

 

Like I said, I knew no better back when I bought this. I am really a rookie when it comes to suit and this whole thing. I didn't even know that your shirt collars had to touch or be underneath your jacket, that was just only like 2 months ago. I am learning a lot from SF. Just hope I don't make anymore costly mistakes. Does it look that bad? I have to wear it anyways so I am not gonna cry over it LOL.
