Not me. I didn't understand it enough to be offended.

Could not agree more. Some of the 4-pattern combo's I see on SF look extremely overstudied for a look that's trying to be understudied. This is a great example of looking crispy enough for the board room but also like you didn't spend more than 12 seconds selecting your clothing for the day.

I did.

Reason: typical overbearing smugness.

Have a holiday party tonight, which tie is in better taste? Pocket square is cream linen, shirt is pale blue birdseye, suit is woolen flannel.





Edit: The green tie is probably a little darker/less washed out than in the picture. It is one of Ed's Panta numbers.

i have that panta tie, and i love it. i would say based on the color and texture of the suit, either is fine. i like the panta better though.

It doesn't matter if you agree, disagree or honestly don't care, you'll never read someone who has thought about this stuff more or more deeply.
Anyone who missed the FNB - Manton debates, with the sheer volume of knowledge dropped and clothing philosophy refined, know only a hollow shell of what a clothing forum can be.

I'm over my limit or I'd have given you a thumb's up. Apparently we can only give so many thumbs in over some period of time.

His post is as close as it comes to the knowledge that was dispensed in the old days. He and I don't see eye to eye politically ... but I certainly respect his knowledge about matters sartorial.

I think of the seven hanks I own five of them are white...

 

 

I am working on it though, a shipment from vanda is on the way

FNB's musings on his site are awesome but the problem is that he occasionally posts some truly God awful horrendous shit and then gives a lengthy explanation about how great it is and it really makes you scratch your head.

Manhattan rich guys seem to fall into three categories: those who don't give a shit about clothing, those who dress with extreme refinement (Manton) and those who are just epic peacocks, unbounded by the constraints of good taste (Tom Wolfe, FNB).

Axel, I much prefer the blue stripe for evening. The other one is a nice tie but more of a country/day tie.
