Opinions? Is it better to tie it with bigger knot or is this fine?

I really like the collar of your shirt ...

QUESTION: I am looking for advice on best place to get a slim fit suit quickly.  I am 6 foot 165lbs and am needing a new suit for an event in roughly 6 days. So I am not really sure that is going to give me much time for tailoring, unfortunately.  It is for a business environment.  

 

The city which I reside has a few of the major names in regards to retail locations.  Men's Wearhouse, Jos A Bank, Dillards, Express, Banana Republic, etc. I'd like to keep it under $500 if possible. But the slim fit of the suit is the most important at this point. For reference, I wear a small in the express 1mx extra slim fit shirts. 

 

Any advice you all might have would be great. Thanks.

Thanks. I should have mentioned I have AE shoes already. Their bourbon color looked OK but no wingtip Blutchers. Walnut is too light

What about the MacNeil? Or did you mean a shortwing?

Complete nonsense. Avoid any tie knot other than 4 in hand irrespective of shirt collar. If you were to use a fuller knot (again , don't) then a cutaway might be more appropriate but not the other way around. Any normal tie will tie a knot large enough for a cutaway collar.

Incorrect.

why? When would you not use a four in hand, or more to the point when would it would be incorrect to use a fih? I can't think of any collar.
post #26740 of 33197

To say that the other knots are NEVER useful is incorrect. The FIH and double FIH are definitely the most versatile, but the others (pratt etc) have their place.

I don't know, half windsor seems extremely versatile to me.

Yes, that's my point.

Half Windsor is fine, but I think it's a little much for every day stuff.

I agree with you though.

Nonsense that he likes the collar?
post #26744 of 33197

I just think the half windsor and FIH aren't really that different, and I think it's super ridiculous to ever say that one is viable in all situation, but the other isn't in any.

 

I personally would only use FIH with knit ties, because with other ties I like the symmetry as I think it's somewhat more formal and neat, but with knit ties I am going for a more casual or non-chalant look anyway. If anything, which knot you use should be a sense of self-expression, and it depends on the outfit/circumstance, I think limiting it is a bit of a waste.

 

I personally don't use the windsor but I'm sure there are plenty of people/situations where it's perfectly reasonable, say people who are larger with larger heads, or want the tie to stand out more.

post #26745 of 33197

Would you rather own a Belvest suit or an E Zegna Milano? I can only pick one and want to know which one would be the better pick in terms of quality.

 

E Zegna Milano looks like RLBL with better shoulders unless I'm looking at the wrong picture(It's been hard to find one). Is there a suit from a different company whose styling is comparable to the Milano(such as Suit supply)?
