You're probably right. My shirt collection is expanding. Eventually I'll have more options.

No, he's not. : ) A casual spread is fine. Even an old British shirtmaker like Hilditch & Key makes linen shirts with spread collars. Spread collar = friendly, smiling collar. smile.gif

Connery's reaction when he heard that a knit tie in a 4ih wasn't appropriate for a spread collar:

That is correct. Also because I do not rake in the mooolah.

Looks v. good jester....its just one thing. I don't like ties with jeans in any non-frat context.
Apart from that, very nice! Collar and tie are fine.

I actually agree. It probably won't happen again. A tie should probably be accompanied by slacks and SC, or a suit. 

We can put the bottom half under failed fits. But if I lost the tie, I'd wear that fit again.

Jester, that jacket looks fantastic! what size are you if you don't mind me asking?

post #14950 of 16350

Thanks! I'm a 38L. The jacket sits somewhere between 38R and 38L. I'd sell it and resize it to be a bit longer with a lower button stance if I knew I'd get my moneys worth out of it. But it'll be my one GQ sized jacket for now. It's not exactly horrendous to the layman.

Fall colors as winter begins to fade in Shanghai.

Scraping ice, temperature in the teens.

 

Note how the elegant arc of the ice scraper in the right hand echoes in miniature the arc of the jacket’s hood as it drapes softly over the shoulder.

 

Style, gentlemen.   Style.  :satisfied:

 

Cheers,

^ Great sweater. Is it not too close in color to your chinos, though?
