Hope to learn and share the best artisanal masterpiece with all you gurus~

You'll learn how to bicker about the tie length of other men.

In seriousness though, welcome, and that's a fabulous suit.

DFIH is another option. Bigger knot though.

I do raise my eyebrow at those who deliberately buy longer ties for the purpose of a long and narrow (end). Or who tie their ties with this end in mind.

Yes - the idiocy of 'sprezz' was made clear to me by none other than Brunello Cuccinelli who, in an interview in one of the men's magazine a couple of years ago, said that he has to tie his tie six or seven times each morning to get it to look the right amount of wrong ... or something!

Folks like Timo and Phat Guido used to continually ruin (for me) otherwise exemplary outfits with this kind of gimmickry. Unfastened shirt cuffs, crappy bracelets, poorly tied ties ... perhaps the worst was PG slinging a woolen sweater over the top of his suit jacket!

This is the worst… particularly when in the Merril Hoge version you end up looking like you have a 6-pack of Depends under your chin and when the jacket comes off the tip of the tie reaches to just about below your mid-chest. Yeah nice broseph.

The tie tuck in the pants has been happening for many years. It was seen in preppy/ivy students, tucking the tie in so that it's not getting caught on desks, food falling on it as you ate etc. it was also seen on the likes of Fred Astaire and other small men whose high rise trousers would have the blade of the tie fall to their crotch if left outside (and also helpful in dancing, tie is not flying around). So people can hate how it looks, that is their perogative but it existed way before "sprezz" and has an actual use, unlike today's affectations.

Interesting. I have never really thought about it. My grandpa did it all the time and I guess that's where I picked it up. For me it's a quite neutral look, so I am honestly surprised it's such an issue to anyone. OTOH, this is SF, and I guess we all have our pet peeves about stuff like this.

I tuck in because I'm short 😉

I think it looks like Shite.

This much is apparent. What is also apparent is that you've become one of the most aggressive (yet somehow overly sensitive) posters in this thread. Dial it down a notch, please.

Without a full-length shot it's really hard to tell how this works together…. seems like two different outfits.
post #18700 of 43842

Agreed. It looks like none of it should go together.

It's possible that the micro-pattern of the pants resolves to a more or less solid color at a distance, which might work with the jacket (agree, it's hard to tell w/o full shot). That said, I am not so convinced that the top half is particularly coherent on its own, particularly with regard to SC & tie. While jk has become one of the posters whose fits I most look forward to, there are times when it feels like he's trying to do too much.

A fit from last Monday (or Tuesday). Having moved to Texas, I find I am needing more summer weight outfits.

Thanks for the feedback guys. The trousers from a few feet away give off a pale grey color. So I thought it would be ok to wear it with the blue patterned jacket. The tie is cotton so to pair back to the casualness of the linen trousers. May not be the best or most coherent but it's what was worn today. Would definitely wear it with my hop sack jacket

Navy/blue hopsack? By all means.

As you get older, even if you are short, you will get better at tying your tie so that it ends up the right length (or you can wear bow ties).....
