Can someone tell me why that $40 brown neat got 15 thumbs up?! Is WAYWRN playing some kinda joke on me? And it had a terrible knot. I feel bad for all the ties that I have and like. Maybe they were sympathy thumbs up. Just weird guys.

Part of it was the sizable different between that and some of your previous fits. The sign of real progress is usually welcomed with a number of thumbs.


The difference between a 40 dollar tie and an 100 dollar tie doesn't really translate in a picture, so the price doesn't matter too much here.


Part of it is that it was a good fit. Neats agree with what you normally wear. It's why we've been pushing them on you.

^^ all of that plus a million ^^

thumbs are not a reliable gauge of anything specific. people thumb things for all kinds of reasons. but we love them all the same.

So after talKing to some people regarding this look, it appears I was the only idiot who thought it looked "ugly and old fashioned." One person said what exactly Betel said and I was quite surprised. I am buying into these neat ties. Thanks again guys for the help. I felt like I was being forced to wear something that was not for me. But CLEARLY, I am dead wrong.

I am so freaking stubborn.

its nothing new. there are many things that probably for some reason or another get bad associations in the outside style world, maybe GQ or whatever you see in a j crew catalogue, and then you get this idea in your brain that tweed or neat ties are for old men only, and other such nonsense.

it takes a while to re-wire, but you will be glad when you do, because i guarantee you that you will look a million times better when you make the mental adjustment.

This is the yellow tie I have.  I got it at TJ max so no breaking the bank here.

colors do not look true to life, but either way, that is gonna be a hard tie to implement well imo.

You seem to gravitate towards ties that almost look like they're fading in colour. I thought it was just the pic quality but you should start looking at ties that have clear colours. I am on cold meds so I might not make sense....

Its a combo of your meds and my crappy phone camera.  My camera on my phone makes everything look washed out.  

post #462 of 37536

what megapixels does your phone camera shoot at? I have 8 MP and seem to get by just fine. 

post #463 of 37536

10 mp - Moto X.  It's a combination of lighting and the compression that google picassa uses when I upload the pictures.  I'm still playing around with the settings on it to see if I can tweek it for better pics.  It doesn't have to do with the MP, it's the exposure settings I believe that are auto adjusting depending on the lighting.

here's what I do. I just email that pic in raw form to my gmail acct, download it, and upload it from a desktop.

OR from your phone you crop out your face and go into desktop mode and post the pic and pick LARGE size when posting pic.
