Sockless just always looks wrong to my eye - unless somebody's at a beach or something.  Sockless with a suit just looks horribly wrong to my eye, without exception.

Why does his jacket have ripples around shoulders?

I was actually reverse-sarcasming you in order to create a sarcasm-loop.

As far as the shirt sleeves: the best advice I can give is to try not to let it bug you. It might be cause by the way the sleeves are cut or are attached to the jacket. I don't know. But it definitely isn't worth the effort to fix.

 

I try not to think he did it purposely; there was a bit of a language barrier, but it did seem that we were communicating pretty well up until that bill came.

 

 

On another note, just bought this tie as a wedding/funeral tie. Good choice? Wearable only with a white shirt? Any other use besides just those two occasions?

 

It's 8cm wide. I'd have preferred a little wider, but on sale and a strong dollar vs. Canadian dollar, it was impossible to pass up from Spier and Mackay.

Good for weddings, funerals, and business meetings requiring somber and serious attire. White shirt only.

I agree with Clags, looks great with a white shirt or a blue shirt





Contributing factor though is if the tie is blue PoW or black PoW, both of those ^ are blue BTW.

Thanks again, Clag. If you keep answering every question I post, I'll have to start paying you a consultation fee

This one is grey. I'll try it with both white and blue and post a pic if I think I can get away with it.

I hear that a lot of women actually fake sarcasm.

post #32861 of 37396
Maybe women just fake a lot of things with you?

Sorry, couldn't resist.

Out of curiosity, does everyone here agree that POW/Glen plaid is equally appropriate at a funeral and at a wedding?

 

Cheers,

I wouldn't say inappropriate, but a PoW is a bit "interesting" for a funeral tie, in my opinion.  I've always worn solid gray, black, or navy ties to funerals.
