Good to see you back in this thread! I find those really big blockstripe ties tricky to wear, but this is a nice implementation.

Sorry DC, I'm not feeling this one. I'm not finding the colours/fabrics/patterns working well together. I think that jacket needs a darker (and differerntly patterned, or solid) tie, and more formal trousers (especially with those shoes). YMMV.

Turnbull & Asser navy horizontal striped corduroy trouser with Crockett & Jones Snowdon boot.

 

This is really great. The cords are a cool detail too.

... Profumo Tie...

 

Congratulations.

 

Profuomo, not Profumo. Unless yours came with a free high-class escort.

 

I think they make quite nice ties - I have one or two myself - but I never really hear much about them.

Nice tie rudals. Now, tuck your square in just a bit more. :)

A 3pc day, which gave me an opportunity to try out this new lozenge tie:

I really like the colors on the jacket here. I hate to bug you one more time today, but who makes it?  Fit looks great btw.

Appreciate all the thumbs up. That is one sloppy knot but I blame it on this $40 tie. The freaking cleaners broke my button on my cuff. I will go back and throw kimchie at them Koreans. I need to figure out how to take better pictures.

I think I've got the balance of colours right here. Shirt is light blue, new from Lewin.

Like this look. I can't say you're a newb like me but for a new-comer, you're doing very well. Keep it up!:fonz:

Good point about the "standard line."  And I think the standard line is more or less correct in this respect.  But to my eye it's not the sole determinant, however.  For me there's a degree of correlation between width of spread and degree of formality too, which might in some contexts trump face shape:  the wider the spread the more formal the look, for me.  That's one reason why I don't like the way I look in a wide spread collar if I'm wearing, say, a countrified tweed suit, and I've got exactly the sort of narrow face that the principle you invoke suggests looks best in a wide spread collar.

 

But that's my eye only, and there could be something wrong with me.

 

It wouldn't be the first time.

 

Cheers,

 

Ac

Anyhow, thanks, no bother at all. SC is Zegna, cotton, wool, angora mix.

You can call yourself a "newb" if you like, but you certainly don't look like on in your recent photos.  Very nice overall.

Oh you're too kind, Ac. :cheers:

Whatever happened to newcomers having a meltdown and getting into fights on WAYWRN? I miss those days.

almost forgot to post these from saturday night. an engagement party with a theme of "1950s hollywood glamour"

Don't tell anybody my vintage tuxedo was from 1960…

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

the evening before the event, giving the ensemble a try—notice hair isn't slicked appropriately, haha. also, I wore a 1950s Bulova watch to the actual event, not my modern Seamaster.

Also, full disclosure: it is not a true tuxedo shirt, I know—I faked it with a royal oxford double-cuff shirt (Sid Mashburn) that I starched. Didn't have time to get a real one in my price range, figured nobody would complain too much biggrin.gif

Hi DonCologne,

 

I really like your choice of fabric here : you look great.

 

If I may, though, I think two slight design tweaks would make future suits look even better.

 

Firstly, raising the pockets a little; and secondly opening up the front quarters a touch. I think the combination of those two edits would lend the silhouette some subtle shape and render it less 'boxy'.

 

A previous poster mentioned dropping the button stance but, imho, that element looks superb as it is currently.

 

Left = original | Right = photoshopped per above
