Jesus wore sandals.

For what it's worth Doc, I use the 'IMO' to distinguish between my opinion, and what I understand to be a rule. So maybe it's not phrased exactly to your liking, but it's very obvious that it is my opinion.

I'm one step ahead of you in regard to the linen. However the neat tie 'rule' has blind-sided me. Well done.

Some opinions carry the weight of rule, such as from the Supreme Court or the Michelin Guide.

The neat tie thing is not a rule it's just something I do. You will see neat ties with odd jackets all over Italy and france.

I wasn't trying to call you out. Just wanted to make sure folks were clear.

I'm with you on this one. Much of the time it looks off to me. Not always, but often.

Too late, I'm sure it's already affected the next 2 years of WAYWT. I wear neat ties with both odd jackets and suits, I usually leave it to the formality of the material to determine which pairs with which.

I apologize, sometimes I read your posts in a more aggressive tone than what is likely to have been intended.

It's because of Val Kilmer's intimidating Van Dyke, isn't it?

Most of the display rigs I recall having less rigidly structured collars.

frown.gif I was in Rome the week before. I saw lots of ties on men during the day walking around the area near my hotel (business and embassy district - near Caraceni, too). Most days, I had lunch at a club on the outskirts of Rome and many of the men there wore ties as well, despite the casual atmosphere. I agree that at dinner, ties seemed rare and I can think of only two places where I saw them.

Because you lost the pants does not make it not a suit.
