That picture was taken with a relatively poor quality camera, my apologies, are these better?
I would not have trouble picking up another tie if neither seem to match the suit of course...
Can somebody elaborate on bias pipes with some images to compare bias and not-bias (?) pipes.
While reading over this thread, there was some discussion about bias pipes came up. Despos explained them in the following, but I am still confused.
These are images from the original thread:
When cloth is cut on the bias, as I understand it, the "grain" is diagonal rather than than vertical. So, a pinstripe would be diagonal, not vertical. Most ties are cut on the bias, if that helps you visualize it. In the top picture you posted, the piping is cut ont he bias, which you can see because the stripes are diagonal, not vertical.
Guess this qualifies as a quick question:
I've been gifted an OCBD shirt. The neck, chest and shoulders fit well, and I really like the cloth; but the waist is really blousy. My tailor charges €5 for putting darts on the back, but the problem is that this shirt has a center box pleat. I believe darts would look weird with such a pleat, am I right? I don't really like box pleats anyways, so is it possible to undo the yoke and turn them into side pleats? though that would be more expensive.
Since it was a gift from someone I appreciate, I want to keep it...
Metal gives a good look generally, but might not be ideal for shirts worn casually (without a tie). I know some people that bend them a bit. Not sure where you are from, but you could try TM Lewin, Charles Tyrwhitt, Brooks Brothers, or eHaberdasher (linked on the right side of the page).
I know this camera takes pretty bad quality pictures but how do these options look?
That is NOT the same suit as before but the other pinstripe suit I will be wearing is at the tailor. I thought this suit jacket was closer to the other grey suit when I put it in the picture but now that I compare the other picture it looks much lighter. So I apologize for throwing it off with that light grey, try to imagine the darker suit from before...
