Having my morning coffee.

 

This is thoughtfully constructed.  No pattern directly abuts another, and the same is true for solids.  As the eye moves down from the face it encounters solid, pattern, solid, pattern.  The lightest of all is the shirt, the item adjacent to the face, initially drawing the eye to the face.  From there color then emerges incrementally as the eye moves down:  white (light blue?  Not sure), brown, burgundy, blue.  Classic application of classic principles, isn’t it?

 

Cheers,

and here is a question for this side of the forum: how do I get a smaller knot out of this knit tie? I tied a 4IH but since it's a 3" wide tie, this is how it came out. Any other options?

I really like to colors and textures, but the jacket is a good two inches too short for my tastes.

Either pull it tighter or tie it longer. 

 

I agree, your jacket looks too short. Your shoes are nice though.

Sometimes that is the rub with knit ties that are on the "wider than usual for a knit" side. If it is sufficiently flexible, lightly woven, you can cinch the knot tighter, but if not, then ???. Tying it longer won't necessarily help unless there is some taper, which again can be limited in a knit tie. If you can't get it smaller, maybe try wearing it with jackets that have lower buttoning points as it won't appear to consume as much of the viewable shirt space as it is with this cut you are wearing now.

Yeah, there's no taper. I think your idea about jackets with lower buttoning points is probably the best bet. Thanks.

No sweat. Good luck with it, it looks like a nice tie.

Full shot wasn't salvageable; these will have to do. Damn shame, because the SC has killer patch pockets.

Tie is Kiton, square is Drake's, shirt is Borrelli, Trou are Cuci, socks are Panthy and shoes are C&J. Everything else is not anyone you'd have heard of.

GMML, 

 

The change in colours between the photos is...mind boggling. First the tie looked brown but the close up shows green. My humble opinion is that it would look better if you throw out the vest. But either way, I like the way you look.
