Our ties are 8cm which is roughly the same width as our jacket lapel. If you are wearing that lapel comfortably your tie should be in proportion to it!

tis perfection. but cuffs would be nice. smile.gif

I agree in the cuffs, but it was no cuffs or no suit, so it was an easy choice nod[1].gif

That would certainly seem to make sense, but I guess I find the best balance of tie-to-lapel ratio not measured by the widest margins, but rather somewhere in the middle (after all, the lapel of a jacket is a dynamic shape, expanding from narrow at bottom to wide at top, encompassing a range of widths. Things look out of balance [to my eye anyway] when the tie is less or greater than the width of the lapels midpoint).

 

The tie below is just about the width of the lapels midpoint, yes? Does this look out of balance (not being rhetorical here...really want to know)?

Perhaps this gets back to my size, though. I'm short and skinny. So, I like wide lapels because they expand my frame, but I dislike overly wide ties, as they seem to shorten me.

 

Anyway, the Eidos knit ties are beautiful, just slightly too wide for me. Though perhaps I'll take another look and see about the balance issue!

Great, bold tie for this look.

 

 

 

After seeing someone (IIRC Sander) pull off an item I generally dislike - contrast-edged white linen square - I decided to dig my only such square out from the very bottom of the drawer to give it a go again. Very casual fit today, inc. the dreaded polo-under-jacket look. :devil:

I thumbed this earlier while on my phone, but now that I look at the pics on my computer I like to add an asterisk to the thumb. I am not overly fond of the high buttoning point on the jacket combined with a low-rise trouser. That little hint of shirt and tie showing beneath the buttons is a (well-known) pet peeve of mine and I just couldn't live with myself if I didn't point that out.....

All contrast-edged white linen/cotton squares should be burned if you ask me......

This jacket looks great on you. To my eye the fit is very good. Better/closer up pics of your shoes icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

This is the latest look I took photos of. As always all comments are appreciated. Please also note a main text which highlights a couple of things you probably noticed. Thanks

Burn that clip braces and use some real braces with loops. Otherwise it´s a real nice fit.
