I think this is in good taste- I do prefer cuffs. Trousers are a nice color, particularly for a casual outfit.

They create a clean line without the tie but create a more cluttered line with--just an opinion. I have always thought of BD collars as something you did before . . . .

BD + tie + tweed always feels like a reasonable combination to me. I think there are some Doc fits floating around that did that combination well.

I was looking for year round weight and wanted something slicker than flannel. I have a sharkskin suit in VBC already and that might be too far on the opposite spectrum as far as slickness. I have a dark grey birdseye as well. I'm thinking of getting a midnight peak lapel with some mohair strictly for evening events and weddings and was thinking of getting a grey counterpart, but with notch lapels, so can be used business formally as well. Both three pieces.

The "clutter" you mention kinda adds a casual note, and that is what makes BD's look good with odd coat + casual tie IMHO. I like soft roll collars with a tie and SC for the same reason...

Here's a BD+Tie fit that I think were in someones (or the) WAYWRN hall of fame. This is doc, I believe, but correct me if I'm wrong. Works quite well I think.

I assume this means you don't like the tie? Honest question - I don't know what the nuanced meaning of the tinfoil.gif thing is.

I have not tried that with this jacket but the check pattern may be small enough that it would work.

Here are a couple of pics for possible inspiration:

I just looked at the 6 or 7 tie-tying videos they posted there and realize that I don't tie my ties like any of them.

Like I said last week, you had a breakthrough then. I think you've developed a better eye. This is nice.
