Honest question. Why restrict a small scale silk PoW to tweed (cf. a rough wool version)? For example, what's wrong with a navy jacket? I understand that it is an altered wedding tie, but I can see it looking quite nice the right navy odd jacket (e.g. the copper/navy one at NMWA was always calling out to me).

 

This is where the clash of conventions and how things look always raise questions for me. In the silk PoW case, if there is a clash, I would opt for the latter (i.e. that it looks smart). But what do I know.

Are those ties silk or wool?

Changing gears a moment.  Can we talk about collars.  I understand there is preference, but is there big no nos or levels of formality beyond bd vs no bd?  I've been getting my shirts successfully from Proper Cloth and I'm happy with their mtm fit and fabrics thats why I stick with them.  Here's their main collar page:  http://propercloth.com/collar-styles  

 

My shirts as of now are comprised of the following collar types.

 

Most of my shirts are President Spread

 

I have one or two in President Point even though I don't care much for it.

 

 

As of recent I picked up a couple with a Milano collar where the collar goes well beneath my jacket

I've been thinking the Milano might be too much and the President Spread not enough so I was eyeing a Londoner 

 

 

Or a Richard Cutaway

 

 

And I definitely need some button downs so I was eyeing a soft Ivey BD

 

 

After seeing Kamakura shirts theres not any roll to this one sadly.  

 

 

 

 

 

Thoughts and insight appreciated.

Jung, I thought that shirt you wore for the white shirt FC was spot on. Just saying...

That was one of two of my Milano collars.  Thanks, I just wasn't sure if those collars are too much.

The Milano looks great, but would look even better with a little less tie space.

Interesting.  I might try some 4iH action.  I wonder if Italians use dem knots...  :fonz:

@Monkeyface

 

Funny...I wouldn't go less on tie space...the top pic is better, I think.

 

JR. Are you tying half-windors?

 

Edit: yes, FIH!

There both from the same day so sb the same.  That one was a half windsor.  It depends on the tie and collar.  I used to only tie 4iH because that's all I knew up until about a year ago and started branching out.  I think a half windsor lends itself to most of my ties, collars and situations.
