Axelman. Nice. Do you prefer a wider tie gap? I mean the space above knot where the collar comes together. See Plinys collar above for a contrast where he has zero tie gap (not sure that's the right term).

looks nice, axelman. does not look very linen-ey to me, which i like, but thats probably just the pic. either way, a very nice looking combination indeed.

The correct term is "tie space." I think a bit less would look better on Axelman's collar. As it is, it almost looks like he doesn't have the top button buttoned. Cinching the knot up just a bit would help, too, so that no collar band visible above the knot.

Of course, these are very minor nitpicks. Overall, that's a great look, Axelman. I especially like that jacket.

Hey Evolve, cheers.

 

I always thought "tie space" was the amount of space that the collar band provides depending on the height of the collar (so more tie space with a higher collar). But we understand each other.

 

My comment wasn't meant as a criticism of Axelman's collar, so not even a nitpick. I've seen collars both ways on the forum and in pics with Pliny's being on one end and Axelman's away from that end. More a question about people's preferences or if there are reasons why one might go one way rather than the other.

 

In any event, I'd be happy to have a fit that is as well put together as the Axelman's.

Thanks all for the kind words. I am a big fan of tie space. Collars that lack tie space are liable to converge over the tie and generally remind me of shirts that you encounter in airplane magazines. I am currently on an airplane so perhaps that is why the thought came to mind but that doesn't make it any less true. The worst offender are button down collars without tie space.

Stitch, I am a fran of the first fit. Second one less so but hard to make out the colors on my screen.

This second one is interesting because it inverts the "wedding" suit and tie combination of a POW tie and a charcoal suit. The reverse looks kind of menswear-wonky. Not a fail exactly, just a little "cute" and forced.

thanks, axelman.

second fit is the same suit as in the first, but with a white shirt, white PS and black cashmere tie. pretty basic i thought, maybe borderline boring with all the solids, but i thought the starkenss of the black and white made up for the lack of patterns. that was my thought anyways.

The black and white vibe is stark and formal, but the PoW on its own isn't a very high contrast or formal. I think that shirt and tie call out for a solid suit. That's just how it comes off to me.
