Well, being the Northern Italian industrialist fat-cat that I am, I just happened to be wearing this stuff today.

My Friday challenge effort. My inspiration was Stephan Winklemann, the way he wears solid ties with bold blue suits and white shirts, but also the big watch and wrist beads.

Is a four-in-hand knot a prereq for this FC?

I agree wholeheartedly with Stitches Pingson. Looking razor sharp . Based on my own limited first hand impressions from Italy ( and Brussels where I have met with italian colleagues), black shoes are the safest bet.

I agree. I forgot to take a photo of the shoes, but I am wearing plain black cap-toe oxfords......

Lolz. I stand confidently by my knots.

In other news, I think I have decided what I will be wearing for this challenge.

Evilb is on the right track with my decision. smile.gif
