it is a 4 in hand.. just a bigger knot due to a wider tie is all...I don't even know how to tie a windsor

You obviously know what you've tied more than I do, but I have never seen a four in hand knot look so symmetric, regardless of how thick the tie was.

I just checked the Suit Supply website, and the tie is not there. Looking at comparable ties, I would guess that it is "cotton linen".

The pants were also so big on me.. makes sense because I am a drop nine. Being that my tailors had to take in the pants by 4 inches they had to take out all four pockets and re-cut the pants as well... I should have taken a before picture.. its amazing what they have done.. simply put these guys are amazing..all this was done for a little over $300..crazy right..sad news is the husband of the husband/wife team/tandem retires next fall... the wife is just as good but he handles my stuff.. just trying to get it in before he does retire..also do not have a true hard 3 button suit so getting used to it..This was worn yesterday for church..

This was worn a couple of weekends ago..date night with my wife..

That really is amazing, the suit fits really well. Only thing I don't understand is how they moved the jacket pockets, if you moved them, you would have to sew the initial opening shut, right?

Shirt fits pretty nice, but the collar is IMO too small for your knot and it looks like (without the pressure from the suspenders) it might be a bit large in the sholders. Also I'd refrain from wearing clip on suspenders (some people make exceptions for heavy weight jeans). I guess you could use them to try out whether you prefer suspenders over belts in the beginning but in general you should avoid them. Either use a belt or wear buttoned suspenders on pants without belt loops. To me clip-ons make you look like a hipster or a waiter at TGI Fridays.

Usually i wear a belt. Today i'm just testing the new suspenders we just got in the store. I think the four in hand may be vetter to this shirt. I see your point there. Thanks.

I'm visiting a friend in hospital this evening - a partial knee replacement - so I thought wearing something bright and cheery would be of some comfort to the patient.

Let me rephrase. They took out the pockets so they could take in the jacket by the hip area and then re-sowed it back in. Hope this clears it up. Thanks for the compliments Sander!

What....are these shoes with this great suit? Maybe just a bad pic ?

@bienluienapris I admire your willingness to combine a lighter blue trouser with a navy sc.  I wish the trousers were a bit lighter

As always, thanks to all those who take the time and trouble to post pictures of themselves and who like my pictures.

Trying new things today.  Inspired by this week's Friday Challenge, for the first time in my life I am wearing brown suede shoes with grey trousers.   I am also trying a new pose.   Rather than the "Robopose" that is favored by many, I am trying "Fantasto Pose", as demonstrated by Mr. Fantastic on the poster behind me.  On a related subject. the Invisible Woman doesn't look invisible to me.  Some of you might think that some women imagine that they are more fantastic than they really are.  You might well think that.  I couldn't possibly comment.

Brooks Brothers blue blazer, pink, blue, and white glen plaid PPBD shirt, pink, blue and white BB#1 Stripe grenadine tie, Squarextraordinaire pocket square, Banana Republic grey glen plaid linen trousers, Eddie Bauer grey and tan argyle socks, and Allen-Edmonds snuff suede Neumoks......


.......and for those who might be wondering, the only time in my life when I have worn brown leather shoes with grey trousers, a picture from several years ago that also shows that even if you are somewhere where you don't speak the language, you can still ask total strangers to take your picture.
