Thanks for the feedback.

I agree with you on the width issue. 

That is the suit with the widest lapels in my closet and so I might just bench this tie until I get another suit with wider lapel width. 

The cuffs...I can look into.

Maybe its my monitor, maybe its my 'special eyes', but I don't see any yellow at all in Holdfast's tie.

Rudals, stylistically and fit wise I don't like the suit, but I can't argue with the color palette. Looks great. Work on your tie knot though! To nit, you should opt with some slight patterned socks. Even solids are too boring for me.

That's surprising to me. You probably dislike working brighter colored solid socks into an outfit like that, right? Nothing over the top, but a little color ...

Would you stick to navy socks but have a subtle pattern?

If the original poster had expressed his thoughts on the tie dimple as a religious constraint, or even merely as a personal preference, then I don’t think any discussion would have ensued.  At least I hope not.  However he chose to express it as a matter of general sartorial principle applicable to everyone, viz.:

 

CBD = no dimples “

 

To me that claim, given its universality, warranted a polite conversation.

 

One of the things I come here for is civil, rational, and informed discussion, and for me most of what followed fit that description.

 

Your mileage etc.

 

Cheers,

Thanks for chiming in. :slayer:

I can look into playing with socks. All I have are solid black socks (bummer). 

I am warming up to full windsor or a half windsor, but am still on the fence and am holding on to my 4IH knot. 

Can you give it to me straight on what you don't like about the style/fit of the suit? I'll note your feedback next time I am buying a suit or go bespoke.

I am in the minority these days where I like my socks to be in the realm of my trousers in color. I don't like too much contrast there. For reference, here are some patterned socks and shoes that I have done in the past:

You're wrong. It is CBD certainly to not care how symmetrical your tie knot is, however.

Keep the FIH, just tie it better. The knot is too big/loose.

If I wanted to keep it strictly CBD then I would stick with solids but I think I have room to play around, or even go over the top, with socks and PS.

Well, it is a bit short and snug. Snug is personal preference, but I like to see more room, it just looks better to me. The lapels are slightly narrow, the shoulders are divoting a bit, the sleeves are too short and not a great shape. I mean, again some of this is preference, some is just little nits.

Congratulations.

 

In addition to the well-fitted and seasonally appropriate bonnet, note the elegant intergenerational geometry of the combined fit, in which the blanket stripe parallels the jacket collar and is continued in the fourth finger of the father’s left hand to provide a longer line.

 

Style, gentlemen.  Style.

 

Cheers,
