Andy, for what it's worth, the tie looks damn good.

In regards to storage, I hang mine. I think I'd be afraid of rolling unless done so veryyyyy lightly rolled.

It hangs well, much better than rolling it up as it retains a certain verve mwink[1].gif

Rolling is certainly dangerous...not for the weak of heart in more ways than one :crazy:

All valid criticisms. 

 

I regard this suit as being very informal, almost slouchy (which I like). Same with the boots. I've heard that Italians often wear boots with suits - Agnelli, for instance. Furthermore, I had just spent a couple of hours shining the boots and they were sporting a mirror polish. So overall, I don't think the clash is too egregious.

 

I have a mild "hump back" (technically, Scheuermann's disease) which causes occasional collar gap in just about all my OTR suits. It does depend a bit on my stance at the time. One reason I'm selling my Tom Ford suit - see my sig - is that the collar gap is quite noticeable, due to the suit's structure. Alas, it's designed for a more upright, athletic body than mine.

 

My long term plan is to commission one or two bespoke suits or jackets per annum. These will address both my collar gap problem and my lapel bowing problem (both of which are ultimately consequent to my spinal issues).

Cox, I'm aware of your spinal issues. I guess I was under the impression that this Formosa was one of your commissions. For RTW, I think it's doing pretty well, all things considered. Net-net, I like the suit. Wear in good health!
