Nop. I haven't played golf since last week, I used to play everyday when I was stuying, that ended 3 years ago. frown.gif

Well, I wonder if ever you and I could peg it up in a SF Golf Challenge?

Maybe a very difficult, if not impossible, thing to arrange but it would be nice wouldn't it dear friend?

Whenever you play, play well B!

@Rudals the sag rumples under the seat is a common problem with RTW trousers that use a belt. The use of braces usually assists with such issue because the trousers sit higher. A simple reduction of the back seam generally alleviates this issue also.

Regarding the wedding suit, there can only be nitpicks to improve the fit. I prefer a slight break to my trousers so I like the current look. Pair that combo with a white FC shirt and wedding tie, polish those derbies and you will look splendid.

Second, problem: The tie that looked funny. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show) I complained from the beginning that this tie is just too wide for me. Boy was I embarrassed. It was a very quick fix with some education.
Basically, this tie looked awesome with a full windsor knot. The reason why it looked so funny was that the material was just so fine that it didn't have enough to form a nice knot with 4IH. When done with a full Windsor knot, this tie looked freaking awesome. I really appreciated that Will actually spent the time to show me how to tie a Windsor and educate me.


 

If you care about clothes, a knowledgeable and expert tailor is a must.

 

I am puzzled about the Windsor helping with the width of the  tie. In the pic, I think a lot would be taken care of if you had appropriately wide lapels in the jacket. The incongruity between the thinner lapels and the width of the front blade is what's really throwing it off for me in this pic. I don't think tie's width is off putting (though I am inclined to say that if it was 1/4 inch or so narrower, that would be better).

 

Perhaps it's a larger knot on top balancing with the bottom that helps? But do explain this magic with a pic!

The man works wonders. Glad you had your issues resolved.

 

This thread is hilarious and informative btw. Thanks for letting everyone experiment with your wardrobe.

Have you tried a double FIH or shelby/pratt knot? Anyway, regardless of the knot, the width of that tie will look great with a double breasted suit or a suit with wider lapels. I've worn a 4" tie with DB suits before, and it doesn't look disproportionate at all. The relation between tie width and lapel width is the most important when it comes to looking good, not the knot.

Thank you Monkeyface.
Yes, you're right that it is tie and lapel width that is more important. But the tie itself looked really funny even with a double loop 4IH. But I was almost stunned when I saw it in a Full Windsor knot. It just looked perfect.

Thank you for the feedback.
The tailor did say that he sees it a lot. I thought it was more of because I didnt have an arse like Beyonce.

Yes, for the wedding I will be sporting a white shirt and those derbies.

I have other suits with wider lapels and will never wear that tie with this suit. I didnt realize how wide the tie was nor did I realize how narrow the lapels were. This was fail.

Thank you very much for your kind comment. Whatever you need are at your disposal.

Making room for the Mrs. Rudals. Moved all my stuff to the left and dumped other junk in another closet. She'll be buying a lot of clothes.

And you think that's gonna be enough? I suppose you haven't had a chance to look inside her wardrobe yet. Most probably even holier than the no sex before marriage thing for women, so I wouldn't be surprised. (lol)

post #3585 of 37395
She's starting from scratch. All my ties, shoes, suits, shirts money will go to funding her stuff. Bummer.
