Yes, but are they different preps?

Usually the results are terrible since these knots are combined with trendy shirts with small collars and slim jackets with narrow lapels. At best it makes your head look small, at worst it looks like your tie is about to eat your face.

 

Not that Haaviz first attempt was that bad, but I agree with others here: learn to love the four-in-hand (or maybe a half windsor if you have a tie with a light fabric). Dark shirts are always tricky, but it can work. But then you need more contrast. If you want a clean look with basic solid colours a white or light blue shirt is a safe start. Build from there.

check out Merrill Hoge...his knots are fascinating.

You're nailing the Business School faculty thing, Clags. Our business faculty complain if they have more than 2 preps per year, whereas our engineering faculty regularly do 4 or 5 without complaint.

I chaired a P&T committee this year where an accounting professor had a teaching portfolio of 2 courses over his 6 year probationary period, and one of those he only taught 3 times. When I went up for tenure I had a portfolio of a dozen courses and rarely taught the same thing twice in any given year.

Oh, and I walked to and from school each day - uphill both ways! smile.gif

SB's fit will get a lot of love before all is said and done. Superb.

Our faculty might get spoiled. 1-1 first year and 2-1 until they get tenure (or the boot). Though a friend of mine just took a job where she has to teach a 3-3 but one prep. Non flagship state school, and she is only required to publish 6 articles, at least second author, in journals with no higher than a 40% acceptance rate (which is pretty much any 3 level and probably quite a few 2's). Still gets six figures in a low cost of living state. It's a good field to be in.

How research oriented is your university, and did his limited teaching portfolio count against him?

I'm so in the wrong field.

Research 1 as they used to be called with a 3-2 load.
The limited portfolio is the norm for business faculty, but I certainly downgraded his teaching rating because of it. I expect much higher ratings for a professor teaching the same class over and over. It wont stop him getting tebure, though. Research trumps all, provided one's teaching isnt atrocious.

It's getting there, but I reserve judgment.

My pictures leave a lot to be desired, that's for sure. The angle at which I take them doesn't do anything to show true fit. I need to up my selfie game. My love for vintage Polo Ralph Lauren and originality will probably hold me back from getting any alterations done, but I'm still pondering it. I've never materially altered any of my vintage Polo pieces, and I have an ever-growing collection.

I really like the coat! But I agree with Master Crusty regarding the length.

Thank you! I really appreciate your opinion.

Looking kind of scruffy, SB.  Dos Equis-esque.  I really like that pocket square.  I think a different tie would have been better here.  A navy paisley tie perhaps.

If it makes you feel better, students are worse people for having taken our classes. People going through a business program are less trusting, less trustworthy, and less prosocial than they are upon entering. That probably isn't true for history.
