I heard we were wearing all solids.  Red, blue, green, brown, and more red.

I don't think so.  Maybe a little.  Tartan and stripes with a matching watch strap on Monday.  Tartan jacket and paisley pocket square yesterday.  I thought it was pretty busy as it is so I kept the rest simple.  Today's all solids, but I wouldn't call it subdued with a red sport coat and socks.  :confused:

That would be wise. In fact, based on previous comments you have made, I would think twice before giving advice in the future until you have a better grasp of what Classic Menswear is about. I'm not trying to be mean, just trying to save you some probable ridicule and damage to your good name.

You're probably right. I haven't worn some if this stuff since I was 80 years old.

Okay, first time posting here although I'm primed for @TweedyProf and his winter sport coat and tie challenge. Have a good arsenal built for the spring version as well. :DI work in a very stuffy town where most folks wear suits because they have to. Needless to say Jos. A. Bank and Men's Wearhouse dominate. None of that in my wardrobe anymore! can't get away with pocket squares every day but will make an effort.

 

 

Suit: Samuelsohn

Tie: Zegna

Shirt: BB

PS: Berg & Berg

i saw your post in 10 Ties b4 it got nixed (temporarily).  Looking forward to seeing full tie/jacket fits.  The Sammy looks great.

1. Dimple the tie.

2. Your PS fold is too contrived. Mush it up...roughly shove into pocket...proceed with your day.

Funny how some ties dimple easily and some don't. Brioni almost ties itself and the dimple forms even with the sloppiest knot. Zegna sometimes. Pocket square folding straight off Brooks Brothers "How to Fold a Pocket Square" prime. Guess it shows!

 

I need to up my tie tying game I think. All I know with any certainty is four-in-hand.

Some high quality ties will dimple better than others. Once you dimple your ties most will have some sort of memory and dimple gets better with time.

Dimple-ification is a function of material, lining and cut.  Brand doesn't come into it.

That's the only knot you need to know. Now you just need to make sure you get a dimple.
