JR, closer pictures of the four or five you wear most, and the ties you generally pair them with?

 

I'll work on this.  Honestly I just started picking up jackets I liked with no overall direction.  I was getting them on ebay and sort of went crazy with them and now I'm trying to put the pieces together.  I think a couple days a week "countrified" is ok with 3 days city/casual being the rest.  I have a few jackets at the tailor right now that are less countrified.

Would depend on what your wardrobe is like, I would suggest. A noodle-centric business wardrobe needs a different set of ties to a casual suit one. However, all else being equal, you don't need 30 to have a well-balanced tie collection, so the exercise is a bit pointless IMO. 10 is enough; beyond that number, it really doesn't matter what you get because you don't need to worry about balancing the collection any more; it's all just buying for fun rather than for need at that stage so why deploy a list?

 

And of the 10, 2 of those are "special event" ties, and another 2 are optional seasonal extras, so it's actually just 6. The first 4 mainly for suits or smart odd jacket outfits, the next two mainly for more casual odd jacket outfits.

 

My version of "the 10" (Click to show)

Navy silk neat

Dark Green silk neat

Burgundy silk neat

Navy/burgundy (or navy/dark green) stripe

Navy knit

Black knit

Navy wool or cashmere solid (for particularly wintry outfits)

Navy/white stripe (for particularly summery outfits)

Black grenadine or repp weave (for funerals)

Black bowtie (for black tie events)

Noodles that looks delicious.  Put your nicest suit on and a plain light blue shirt with spread collar, keep your PS under control and breathe in...and put this on nicely.  You will glow with pride when you see yourself in the mirror.  Well done.

Have you tried an iron? Put it on the wool setting, put a slightly damp cloth over the area, and press it. Don't slide the iron back and forth, just press firmly until the cloth is dry.

Can I cut my PS into half? It sticks out like that in all of my jackets. Or do I need to lose man boobs?

post #642 of 37405

HEY! SOMEONE POSTED A PICTURE OF ME!

 

Here's one I'd recommend, based on what I have.. another Panta, just like the green Neat Panta of mine that was posted earlier. It's really excellent.

 

(Worn with blue chambray linen)

 

(Worn with a soft White cotton)

 

And this one is an interesting color that'd go well with a grey suit, I think (Panta):

This may be a dumb question but when you all say "neat" ties, is it the design like those above pantas?

post #645 of 37405
That's correct. Not "neat" as in nifty or bitchin' haha
