Thanks sugarbutch!

ragazzo, it's the picture and light that makes it look brighter than IRL - often a problem when I take pics of Drakes wool squares for some reason.

Here is the square - not bright

+1000. I have Drakes square in almost exactly the same colors, and it positively glows in some of the pictures I've taken of it.

I don't really like the tie. The length, pattern and boner is a bit too much IMO. confused.gif

The comments about tie length are funny but it really isn't that long, barely covers the buckle... As you can probably figure out (from the position vs the coat button), the angle is playing eye tricks here...

Gdl sprezzed out! Only one of the two top buttons done. Nicely done.

yeah, it is inevitable when you lean even the slightest bit that the tie seems too long. i didnt even notice the illusion until people starting nit picking on it.

Maybe this is some kind of juxtaposition statement with less formal suit and tie and very sharp ridiculous high collar, but it looks awful and insecurely begs for attention. That shirt is clearly meant for worsted (the collar meant for an ostrich). I dont think this would be considered good taste by any justifiable measure. It is the shirting equivalent of patent leather shoes with a flannel suit - yuck!
