Absolutely. I would love to donate my retrenched Canali ties to those famine victims in Davos and Vail. I dub such largesse "paying it forward".

Pretty cool how someone was able to take the wallpaper from my local Chinese food restaurant and make a coat out of it. Can't imagine it's too soft, though.

It seems to me that an overcoat might be the place to go a bit wild. You're unlikely to be conducting business in it, and you wear it only in transition. I like it.

Opinion about this tie anyone? (it's cashmere)

post #19223 of 37396

Nice tie. Inappropriate for CBD but could be great in winter fits with odd jackets, 3-piece tweed/textured suits etc. Strikes a mean between rustic (texture) and formal (colour and pattern).

cheers Cox-  Actually this is a bit of a 'Cox's hlelp me make up my mind to buy it Thread' type deal.  

You know, the tie is very you when I think about it.  Earthy, textured.

I don't mind straying from traditional overcoats. I just don't care for that one in particular (to give a non-joking response).

I would say to put the kibosh on kops for a month minimum and try not to be on SF too much when you are around her. The initial shock has clearly not worn off yet.

You can buy her all the Prada in the world, she will still be mad about your kops and indulgence of SF. Just peel back a little on SF time that she would notice and hold off on kops.

I bet if you do that for a month and then slowly increase to a level that is not insane it will be ok.

For me... I just started teaching my wife about the different qualities and compositions of fabrics, and told her about the lines of the suit (shoulder line and outer sleeve line, and silhouette in general) and how they were rather important.   She didn't get it at first but now after a few pictures and seeing me in the Neapolitan suits vs Chinese she understood.

 

When we go shopping for her stuff now she likes to feel the different fabrics and try to guess at their composition haha.

 

Also I let her play a part in the process of ordering stuff.  We had a rather long argument where to place my initials on the shirts... I preferred it on the chest, but she wanted it on the cuffs so people could see (which I felt was rather indecent... she ended up winning this argument)... but now that I see them they're pretty nice if a bit flashy haha.
