Looks great GC!

Thank you for your kind comment. Really. It makes me very happy. And for whatever is at your disposal.

@Claghorn, I think this is the scale idea that @GMMcL was telling me about the other day. The width of the wide stripe on the tie is similar to the width of the check in the SC. I like them both, but not together.

Tried something different today since I was without a tie. Not really sure I was successful, but it was fairly casual. Poor photography free of charge.

I love the tie plus the idea of the fabric mix.
Talking about the spacing/pattern theory, it's not the width of the wide stripe but the spacing of the thin stripe being similar to the check spacing (and stripe width) of the jacket that could(!) possibly lead to that pattern match feeling. From mid distance the jacket check will dissolve. In my gut it would work possibly "better" (read: when only the best is good enough, and we don't expect anything but the best from clags) if the shirt was less saturated, nearly light dove grey. In my eyes the shirt/jacket saturation is close. But then maybe a case of camera or monitor settings.

Maybe I just have an association of repp-ish ties and navy blazers or solid SCs/Suits.

Well - two choices here. Either a). it's so that the true believers can tell who's a goy, and who is not, or b). it's a temptation from the Satan of Shatnez. You decide . . .

I'm ebarassed to say I had no idea Talmudic law prohibited the mixing of fabrics the way it does the (delicious, imho) combination of meat plus cheese/dairy. I have infinitely more respect for Stitchy (and all others who are observant) for spectacular fits within an additional layer of rules beyond the mere sartorial (to, dare I say, the spiritual).

Footnote: Many of the kosher restrictions that I'd previously been aware seemed to me, an admitted goyim, to have grounding from a historical perspective -- pork and trichnosis, for example. This one has me puzzled, and the wikipedia entry shed no light. I don't want to start a frolick and detour, but if anyone has any insight, hit me on the PM.

thanks, G. much appreciated.

the law is biblical though, not talmudic. there is no per say reason, its just the law. many commandments fall into that category, including no pork or milk and meat. people may suppose reasons behind the law, but it is, simply put, the law. for those that choose to abide by the full spectrum of religious jewish law that is.

great fit today, btw.

With a better shirt collar (i.e. longer) this would look quite alright imho, given that all the other garments have a decent fit.
