BTW, I received my Post-Imperial tie the other day (HM Customs delayed it for ages) - really beautiful and I look forward to wearing it in the Summer!
I haven't read Flusser, but as a short fellow, I learned through trial & error that middling gorges suit me much better than the lower ones, so that's another datapoint at the other end of the spectrum to back this up.

Personally, I think a lighter-coloured tie would work better to balance out against the trouser/shoe combination. Maybe that cream/red striped one of yours?
Not my finest hour today, but in my defence I had to wake up a bit before 8, far earlier than my usual, so wasn't exactly full of the joys of Spring at that time of the day. I hate mornings...
Thanks for you feedback but it's a personal thing as always with menswear.
Thanks man! Same thing about the trousers but it's always fun to hear others opinions.
@Braddock, that is amazing. So many patterns, but so much win. I love how the tie, the ps, and the scarf all work together even though they seem incongruous at first!
I have never had more compliments on a jacket/fit IRL. Like strangers in the hallway compliments. I wore this last at a kentucky derby party and strangers stopped me in the street while driving to honk and holler. It was hilarious.
I only wear it maybe 2-4 times a year, but man is it worth holding on to.
And yes @Crat, St. Patrick's day in Boston. If it was warmer and I wasn't wearing a jacket, it would probably take me an hour to walk a 5 minute distance due to the attention this jacket gets haha.
