So where are you then? South coast someplace? Although contrary to popular belief, there are lovely beaches all over Great Britain.

I didnt say warm, I said lovely.

Attended a small educational module recently.

 

Was informed to wear office attire so I went with a normal long sleeve shirt, black pants and black work/dress shoes. Here in Singapore where the climate is hot and warm whole year round, its rare to see any men wear a necktie or dressed up in full suit unless its a business meeting or its enforced by the workplace as a dress/attire code. I am also currently applying for a job as just completed my compulsory national service so do not have any suit yet at hand.

 

I arrived at the venue pretty early so was the first, and during registration, the lady at the counter suddenly told me I need to dress up more properly. I got shocked at first as thought what went wrong, I got worried if I wore the wrong pants or shoes. Turns out, I am not allowed to roll up my sleeve (which I did due to the hot weather) and am required to wear a necktie, which I didn't bring as it was specified earlier. She then scrambled through a drawer and passed me a box, with a necktie inside, the colour I find it slightly weird though somehow it coincidentally almost matches my shirt colour. Got to wear it though and as the shirt was a fitting one but my neck has grown slightly larger than when I had it measured but am required to fasten the collar button as she insisted, the collar was a little tight and it made my face more rounder and plump, plus the sleeves and tight collar did add on to the heat my body is experiencing due to the weather aside from the choking and suffocation I had to silently endure.

 

Eventually when all the participants reached, I realized the rest of the participants and the lecturers, all 21 of them in total, were all female, and they were simply dressed in either t-shirts and jeans or blouse, and all were wearing sleeveless and collarless top. So was trying to figure out why I was told to dress up more formally instead, though when looking at it again it was somewhat a privilege too being the only male for that course.

I wore this for the FC but didn't have time to submit the pics. Sorry about the low light photos.

^ would have looked better without the ridiculous tie, but alas that's Singapore the land of ridiculous rules.

Singapore has a lot to learn from the Italians....

There are never enough excuses to be dress up, but never an excuse to be under dressed.

Wearing my first Drake's tie, bought before SF starting influencing my tastes and caused me to buy many more.

MF, is that a raw silk or very slubby linen? Might be slightly too slubby? But I like the combinations, blue with light gray seems like a winner to me. What trousers are you wearing or is it a suit?

 

Drakes for me has been hit or miss. Quality is great, but quality of knots has not been consistent (though my sample size is very small, i.e. 3). I know most everyone else in the thread has had good experiences. Maybe I'm just an outlier.

It's actually a weird mix of silk and viscose, but it drapes very well. The blazer is linen, so the slubiness kinda matches.

I use a DFIH with all my Drakes, works quite well IMHO.
