One man can dream, can't he biggrin.gif. Although I will probably get nightmares from trying to assemble such a device.....

I always disliked "true" red ties, until I found this dark red silk (well okay, it's not "real" red anymore):

^ I like it. Its an example of a good red tie. I plan on wearing something similar tomorrow.

Sander, what part of Berlin are you folks in? Am planning on spending some time there this summer; we've generally lived in Mitte when visiting. I agree with Evil, as red tie goes, that works.

Kreuzberg. Drop me a line if you come, I'm happy to give some tips (if you still need any). Meetups are also always nice.

agree that that is a beautiful tie Sander. Would love something like that, but in wool.. Anyway, green for me today:

Steffen, I like the collar on that shirt (more of a 90 degree angle, so less spread). I've been toying with getting less of a spread on my collars. The standard line is that less spread for wider faces and more spread for narrower faces. I have a strong jaw, so go against the grain with wide spread collars. But the collar is nice. The jade green is striking.

Danke! I have to admit having eyed that light brown wool herringbone that you have for a while now. I did already spend out my tie budget for the year, but will that be a staple tie for you folks? The ties look lovely and would like to visit your shop. I'll drop you a line when our plans firm up. Will be nice to find a store in Berlin that focuses on classic menswear (though I do appreciate the small boutiques all over the city). I hear rents have gone up, unfortunately.

I follow you now.  I have a few repps that may fit the bill that I'll definitely try out next time.  I never gave thought to making it more "American" as you said.  Thanks!

 
Today, new SS Suit, Marinella tie and AE Rutledges.  Maiden voyage of all 3.

No problem. I think it can be helpful to approach things with a specific aesthetic in mind, because it sort of restricts your choices and gives you more rules to follow/break/subvert.

 

I like what you have going on today -- I'm going to assume the suit is true-to-color in the bottom pic, and that you're wearing a very light blue shirt. Brown-gray suit with a light gray shirt would be... uh, well, wrong with black shoes, for one thing.

It's a dark grey/charcoal suit with light blue shirt. It does look brown in that top pic.  :brick:  Tonight I'm going to finish cleaning my home office and getting my DSLR setup for better pictures.

^ I get the same problem shooting my grey suit - it looks brown in close up shots.

 

Lovely shoes btw the Jungle.
