I like the tie. Berg and Berg make some nice ties.

 

The tie is proportional to your lapels and looks nice. I suppose what you would get from a 9cm is a bit more fullness at the knot going down with the jacket buttoned. But such differences are slight, and not visually obvious unless you are attending to it and fixated on such differences.

 

But that’s the fun of dressing carefully and putting together interesting fits, all the variables you can sort and combine (sort of like cooking: if you can taste the flavors then you enjoy it). For me, the challenge is collecting the ingredients! You're doing well on that score, and as a fellow academic, I continue to admire and envy.

Thank you gents!  Maiden voyage of my first Carminas.  They feel so good on my feet which spells trouble for my wallet.

Only slightly. That's an early effort and more closed than I like. I think Koreans like it because it works better with shorter jackets (which then elongates their legs).
these would be perfect quarters for me: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

that does look better, imo. smile.gif

Thanks for the comments. Would you recommend dark brown horn?

CD - more contrast, more blazer-y in my book; I'd go with a golden brown horn if it's available, let it ping. :)

 

Clags - that suit is beautiful, closed quarters or not.

 

Stitchy - thank you.  This tie is a tricky one knot-wise and I tried it a couple of ways.  The trouble is, it's so soft and thick - cashmere, and unlined - it tends to look a bit limp in a 4IH.  I gave it a Shelby this time which managed to sustain a dimple, but you're right, it's still not quite working.  I will experiment further.  It's worth it...I have love for this tie.
