My pants begin at my natural waist but slide down after a short while which is why I'm having brace/suspender buttons added to all my suit pants.

I posted this in the blazer thread also: what do you typically wear the Macclesfield ties with? I am considering wearing one with a navy odd jacket, but wasn't sure if they were considered to be on the more formal side.

certainly they are 100% great with a suit. as to SCs, some would say no, but i do it with more subdued SC/trousers combos and i think they work fabulously. im sure ive posted pics and if you want, i could try and find them for you. tho i would feel a bit egotastical to use myself as an example.

Thanks for the reply. I was leaning towards not wearing it, but this just pushed me over the edge.

Better egotastical than egotestical... I think.

You do know that the swatches won't magically turn into ties right before your eyes, right?  stirpot.gif  You've got to e-mail David to order them.

It is impossible to resist once you have the swatches.
