I think the tie is fine - the square is a no go.



Oh, and the last few pages have been much better.

You don't like an Argyll & Sutherland tie?

Thank you.

rotflmao.gif but no, I don't like it. Colors just look bad together to me.

^I quite like the second one. Are those trousers flannel?

Desu, great to see you posting here.

I wish there were a bit more contrast between jacket and tie in the last picture. Not in bad taste, just a little flat.

^^ Photo itself is strong in compositional elements suited to the purpose, and I guess that’s why you chose it? -  shallow depth of field and complementary colors blurred in the background draw the eye to you; perfect  for a shot that’s all about the subject's clothes.  Look-wise, the subtle mix of patterns and colors and the impromptu  way you’ve thrown things together-   messy collar,  throttle-cinched knot (at the table?)and shy PS -  is full-sprezz , yet the mix might have pleased the DOW- russet gold, leafy greens, earthy browns and a rosy overcheck on the tweed would IMO bee contrived and matchy but for the strong blue verticals of the shirt contrasting, balancing, anchoring the whole ensemble -  makes me want to give it a go again, having abandoned busy and difficult  3 and 4 patterns in my own fit regimen for solids- which are usually more elegant, more bang for buck  and harder to f--* up even if sometimes boring.  Good 4 pattern combinations are scarce as rocking horse shit  on SF, but this is  exquisiteness IMHO.  Selection-wise it’s m ore the spread collar than the tie I’d quibble with.  Odds on that i-gents will look back in a decade and snigger at spreads the way we do at power shoulders, contrast collars  and braces of the eighties or the ultra-fitted waists, flares and crazy lapels of the seventies (I hope so).   But the spread thing is personal andneither here or there-  this is still a fit that's harmonious, subtle,  finely balanced, and to me stands out in this thread and any. Thx for making the effort 

 

 

Talk about serendipity-  was just posting about Foos earlier fit when below came up-  another outstanding 4 combo.
