^^I looked at that olive one and decided to get the rust because I have a couple of green wool ties but nothing in the rust range. I only had a chance to quickly try it out yesterday. It seemed like a typical Drake's knot for that weight fabric. Not skimpy at all. I prefer their 3.5" ties and the resulting knots, but rust seems hard to find, so I settled for 3.25".post #7522 of 376626/12/14 at 10:42ampost #7523 of 376626/12/14 at 10:55ampost #7524 of 376626/12/14 at 11:01am
@Rudals - I actually really don't like stiff collars. That collar is ironed, unlined, unfused, no collar stays. I don't like any of that. I just like the 'natural' feel of nothing in the collar. I'm starting to consider medium lining though.
The knot sucked - mah bad. I don't really think it's all that skinny though, its fairly typical of a 3.5.. The lapels are a bit wide. I like it. I'll keep an eye on it but I think the symmetry is fine there.
As for the PS, I have a cream linen! :-D Thought about wearing it.
@unbelragazzo - It's definitely a very white shirt. Was thinking of getting a 50/50 Linen/Cotton cream shirt. The tie is olive. Pictured with a brown linen tie here (as true to color as I can get, but it was tough.. it's close to brown/green). I liked the olive quite a bit. I usually float around blues, browns, burgundy and greens. Here's a link.. http://vandafineclothing.com/store/neckties/356-olive-herringbone.html

@mrjester I think you could do a white shirt with that tie, but you'd have to wear a different suit--something more summery, like a lighter blue linen. Even then, I think the color of the tie just doesn't work with white. Everyone seems to hate hearing it, but light blue would be better. I think cream might work. Also a brown stripe like this would be good.
Hot damn. Been looking for a shirt like that. Exactly like that. That looks like a linen brown stripe.. I'll look in to it!! Fully agree that that would look nice. Gracias, partner.
Definitely will work on the knot. I just slacked.
And that was originally the Foo Fold. But then I kind of twisted it so it's like you tuck in the ends, then fold it back towards your body instead of to the side. I'll play with it.post #7525 of 376626/12/14 at 11:19amQuote:

I think the entire ensemble needs to be mentioned.
Like, I've got off-white trousers and don't wear them with white, but I think it looks OK broken up with a darker belt, shoes, and light blue SC, or maybe even colors of green. But that's what I'd wear if I were to wear it at all.post #7530 of 376626/12/14 at 11:49amQuote:Originally Posted by mrjester

I ordered a white cotton/linen popover, so it would either be worn without a jacket at all or perhaps with a casual blue/navy/light grey SC, and probably loafers on my feet. I don't wear belts if I can help it, so the trousers have side adjusters and suspender buttons.
