jungleroller - that is what I aim for in tie length - or else with the tip just touching the belt buckle. But neither suspended well above nor dangling down below.

I for one wholly approve of that paisley awesomeness. Also, I like what I can see of that suit.

I'm surprised no one has responded.  I'll give it a shot.

 

I like all the parts individually very much, all the way down to the socks.  Lovely jacket.  Details?

 

As you know, there are some here who wouldn't like the tie regardless of what it's combined with.  I'm not one of them.

 

I do find the combination with the shirt to be a tad distracting here.  I think it's the way the diagonal lines in both interact to form a larger pattern, viz:

 

 

I'm imagining that if we were having a conversation, this effect would be directing my eye downward, away from your face.  

 

Others might feel exactly opposite, perhaps.  In any event, best to be aware of the effect.  You might already be, and perhaps you like it, in which case cool:  go for it. 

 

Cheers,

 

Ac

I have been wearing variations of the same fit lately, but I'm like that when I get new clothes I really like. The shoes are new though (and were changed when I stepped outside because of the slush), and so is the bow tie. I met a lady who´s older relative had owned a tie shop for a very long time, when the shop closed down (~20 years ago) he just threw a bunch of bow ties in to a big box and stored it in his attic. Well, the lady I met found the box and decided to sell them. Luckily I got the chance to walk away with 18 great bow ties for a steal.

Anyway, here's today's outfit:

I don't normally do this kind of pedantry, but since the etymology is kind of amusing, I'll break the habit of a lifetime. The idiom is generally "chock full" rather than "chalk full", and IIRC derives from "choke full" as in being gorged with so much food that it's at risk of overflowing back up the gullet and putting you at risk of choking.


I really dig these colours. Beautiful.


I was going to say and ask the same, with the caveat that I think slightly more built up shoulders would be more flattering than the soft one. But in terms of lapel, chest, etc, yes, I really like the look of this cut.


Finally, and this is not a serious entry for this thread (hence the spoiler) but more an opportunity for collective rotten-tomato throwing in revenge for my anal retentiveness re: correcting southernstyle's turn of phrase above, here's the extra-casual outfit I wore today. More crewneck experimentation. It would be OK if the jacket was a size smaller, but as it is, it's purely random casualwear:

I appreciate the chock full idiom explanation, always good to learn new things.

Is that a Knit or Grenadine? It looks like Grossa but seems to be too uneven along the edge.

Yeah well found, the edge is not finished. It's a knit from The Knottery. Good Stuff.

These pants are very high rise, they're about an inch above my belly button. I'd say these trousers probably have the highest rise out of all my trousers. How high do you wear them, below your armpits lol8[1].gif?
