So for those 6' and over, or those whose clothes make them appear such.
Worn for the Friday challenge, which requires fits to be monochrome.
Tie: Henry Carter
very nice Fred
I had some plain navy suit pants done in a 1", or maybe even a bit less, and when I wear them now I think they look kind of smart, kind of more fashion forward and modern than 2". The 2" can look disproportionately big on some people- Foo for example, IMO, whose fits I admire very much except for the width of his lapels and cuffs, which I think are clearly too wide for his stature. ...Also think the kind of shoes, the width of hem, color and pattern are all relevant factors for cuff width determination. If I had time I'd propose a formula that includes all of those variables.
I am 5' 11" and find the two inch cuffs to be a delightful revelation for me. Maybe it's my enormous square head, or preference for much higher waistlines than the GQ-mangina trend, but the proportions make me very happy.
Today I am wearing a Post Imperial square, in all its ostentatiously-frayed glory, with a tie from Yellow Hook that is probably my favourite. I love those guys. I just wish they'd get on with making some more ties - they sell out too quick when I've spent all my money :)
