Probably a bit more acceptable to most today: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Oh, I have no idea what outfit that was worn by those war pilots. My use of this word as an adjective is more along the lines of reckless, killer-take-all stripes. happy.gif

Gustav Mahler's treacherously high writing for French Horn in his 9th Symphony is fondly referred to as "kamikaze horn parts".

You are thinking too hard. If you still continue to think, I'd be here to buy it off you if it's a 42R.

Nonsense, it's the perfect length. Maybe a nip in the waist, but it's a good fit overall.

Why not? Or is it just cost?

 

Also, if that tie is RLPL, I have the same one. Or something very similar. It gets really hard to tell when it comes to large scale green paisleys.

Given that the silk on the tie is a bit stiffer, I might have made it unlined instead. Maybe I'll make that suggestion to Conrad, he's active and seems like a nice guy.

 

Too big a knot for you to go for it?

Me? No I really like it, just with a wide collar spread, as you say. I'm a pretty broad guy and tall (6'5") so I generally edge towards a bigger knot, but finding the equivalent length is often the challenge.

 

If you're getting a new version made, you can send the old one to me! ;)
