both excellent. neither solid through and through. after some thought, while i do like todays fit, i think what you said earlier is the lynch pin here. if you are going to go true all solid, it really is better to go with navy or black. which i did not too long ago, twice . i wanted to try it with more color, but i think its best reserved for the darker colors. there was also more texture variation on the ones i did earlier.

Those are some built up shoulders, Fred49. But they seem very well executed. Richard Anderson?

 

Will.i.n, I dislike the tie too, but I only wear printed ties as of late, so I'm biased.

I liked the tie so I wore it. The shoulders are kind of bunched up in the photo. It isn't a pro shoot and I didn't take any time to settle in..
It is a typical Richard Anderson shoulder.
I have Thomas Mahon suits too. I will feel them when I get home and take a photo with a tape.
One of the guys who is more into how the suits are made could probably fill you in on every aspect of their production.
I happen to like Richards cut. I guess that is why there is more than one house on the row. smile.gif

No, I agree. That kind of pattern is usually paired with a large windsor knot in cheap ads.

Lol, I will let Kiton know their ties are better suited to the ESPN knot and a cheap beer ad to follow. As for me it will be thrown into the trash.

just because it's Kiton doesn't make it good taste.

seriously, this is not the "I like it and I am an individual" thread. Not that everyone doesn't know that by now but the forced insistence on trying to bend the thread to individual will is really old.

No, I'm with you. Either cheap or corporate or both. Although I make allowances for old-school regimental ties.

I don't believe I said that. I said that I would inform them that the tie was better suited to an ESPN knot and a cheap beer commercial. smile.gif

Well, it shouldn't be surprising if this thread gets bent a lot. Most of the old contributors don't post much anymore, and new comers still crave advice. I'm not saying it's right, it just is what it is.

Yeah, I like how the shoulders on your jackets are done (I hope my last post didn't read like I don't).

 

I don't like very structured shoulders for myself but if you do, Richard Anderson makes them well.

BTW, I was wondering about the taste level of my Cappelli collection. Colors are not 100% true to life really, specially the last one, which is a much darker peach color, but they're close enough...

 

 

4x challis, knit, 3x madder, 2x twill

 

They're to be worn mostly with odd jacket combos, not suits

Very nice. I'm going to a wedding today and may break out a medallion tie. They get no love.
