It's a knock off of a Borrelli two button collar BD made for me by Hemrajani (mytailor).

I wonder if this is partly due to the climates you've lived in. I assume that being in TX, your fall/winter picks will look different from mine given warmer temperatures.

Yes! Nice, lots of knits and a pair of bow ties as well. Looking forward to the fit pics.

@sugarbutch if you don't mind me asking...where are the bow ties from?

Except South Korea has distinct seasons and it didn't bother me there. I wasn't wearing linen suits in the winter mind you (and don't really do it in Texas, though I might start here pretty soon).

While we're waiting (reducing to 10/5 is hard), @sugarbutch's tie pics made (a) knits and (b) silk more salient in my mind. I'd happily swapped a pointed blue knit for my blue grenadine, partly to "de-rusticate" my choices.

 

To cheat a little on the rules (and in the interest of providing more pics), an alternative to my copper herringbone tweed would be something in silk (too blue AM light):

 


Anyway, @Claghorn next?

Yup, unless SB has his jackets?

Luca is afraid you guys may be overthinking it a little...

Well, this is Style Forum right?

Of course, and I believe that Luca was exaggerating. Though there is of course the suggestion that overthinking and style may be mutually exclusive.

I doubt that's true. Overthinking and effortless style, maybe. Anyway, these are topics for the Lounge. Want to raise them there?

Yeah that's a better idea, sorry. Didn't mean to disrupt the thread. Please carry on...

I confess I don’t love the madder as much as the other ties, but I do like it better when combined with the jacket—one measure, in my opinion, of the success of the combination.  Kudos.

 

Cheers,

I think you meant the green medallion of mine? I grant that it isn't so versatile, but I think there should be a a couple of madders in one's F/W set of 10 and certainly in a wool-heavy set like mine. This is my only one thus far though likely not the last.
