@Anden I applaud you. May I suggest a slightly upturned face and a more "I'm richer than you" posture...

 

(Not for consideration since no bow-tie)

Unfortunately, I won't have the opportunity to wear a bowtie this week, so I found a vintage picture of me (at least 2007), when I was wearing a bow tie (also I used to have some hair and a moustache ... tempus fugit...)

Still, german beer (I guess it was), bow tie, OCBD and DB suit was a pretty cool combo.

Doesn't the leg tattoo undermine the whole look? :)

Imagine if you could see the other tattoos.

Since the picture doesn't have to be from this week, here's Lenin, Miss Mao, and I on the corner of 4th and La Brea in Los Angeles around two years ago.


As I have mentioned before, if I win the Friday Challenge part of the challenge will be that the picture has to be taken somewhere outside on the street to prove that the entrant actually left his house wearing his entry.

For those who want more details about Lenin on La Brea in Los Angeles......

I actually don't wear bow ties often but what the heck... it's for a good cause.

I must admit that my photo was taken at home. I rarely use a bow with that outfit. I usually wear my outfits at work and all day. 

Will try to get a fit tomorrow more in line with CM.

It is a pretty cool combo - I like it!

This is my FC entry - not the pics of the bow tie club.  This heavy woven silk tie is from Fort and Stone and perhaps on only its second outing:

 

 

 

 

 

To please @Roycru I stopped on the way to my office at the post office this morning, which happens to be close to the lovely house that is the former home of Dorothy L. Sayers.  I managed a quick selfie!

This is by far my favorite outfit of yours.  I love the tweed and the suede and the patterns and the bow and the square.  Really well done.  Also, I'm sure this has been said before, but your photos are terrible.  Are you taking these with a 90s flip phone?  JK, but this pics are not doing your fits justice.

xpost from WAYWRN.  I'm from the South (Alabama/North Florida).  This fit has a southern Trad feel to me.
