HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 4724  

post #70846 of 78724
Even though we're set to get another 2-4" of snow today, I am so tired of jeans and hiking boots that I've decided to dress up - a bit. Today's tie is a new acquisition, being given a test run.

Everything today is BB, except for today's pocket square (RLPL), today's cufflinks (David Donohue for Cable Car Clothiers, SF) and today's scarf (Johnston's of Elgin).

Note also that I've changed lighting from compact fluorescents to LED bulbs, which has taken the yellow out of my photos. Colors are truer to life (though now I have to add yellow back in, a bit).

Is that a tab collar my good man? Don't see very many other posters making such a choice, though the spreads and button-downs are the more commonly-seen, I feel like the tab has a nice rarity and uniqueness that you pull off with aplomb. I applaud you

Thank you - the collar is indeed a tab collar. Today's shirt was made as a part of my first order of MTM shirts from Brooks Bros., sometime in the mists of history, as the combo of tab collar and double cuffs is nearly impossible to find RTW. I like tab (and eyelet) collars on occasion - one of my many eccentricities.

Went for something a little different.

Before I joined SF this is what I bought and thought was the best that I could buy.

I am ready for the SF firing squad. 

Just thought I try this on today even though EVERYTHING about is is non-SF compliant.

Only thing I would change is the shirt collar. Longer points so it extends to the lapel and taller collar to match your neck length.

I would have also pointed out the width of the tie being too narrow. 

Collars are definitely not cool (per SF standards).

Going to a college social later, needed something subdued, relaxed, but also formal.

Did you sew the brace buttons on yourself?

Regardless, I would move the front ones to line up with the first belt loop, then go 3" back for the second one.

It will look vastly better.

Thanks. I did sew them without any knowledge of where they should be, I'm glad I've finally been corrected on my placement! I should have done more thorough research beforehand tho'.

Yup, first one lines up with the primary pleat, which is usually the first belt loop too.

3" between them, you can go up to 3.5".

I usually safety pin them on, then see how it looks before stitching.

You are supposed to cut the belt loops off after too, but I usually don't.
