I'm thankful for the advice as I'm continuing to experiment.

Borrelli or shmorrelli - doesn't matter. You can make it look better. There is no sugar-coating it: the tie knot is ugly right now. Look at the WAYWRN thread for examples. Or, here's a random google image of a good four-in-hand knot:

^^^ Double four in hand,  I think.

I am wearing a Kamakura Cutaway Collar, and I am wondering if it is appropriate to wear a cutaway with a crew neck sweater. Am I breaking any rules or is okay?

Have you yanked the front of the sweater down to show off the tie? Looks like you have, which I think is throwing the whole thing off a bit. If you want that, get a v neck. I like the crewneck + tie idea, regardless of collar type really, but this looks off.

Regular.

I'm quite certain it's double; the first wrap is visible at the bottom edge.  Either would be fine, and an improvement on the knot arnathor is wearing.  The knot you originally posted is also a bit nicer than this example I found.
 
Single vs double.

I wondered this, too.

I have a pair of Howard Yount Trousers and theres a little loop to the right of the front button. Pictured here about 1.5" to the right. What is the purpose of this loop?

Keep your answers clean please. biggrin.gif

This happens to me frequently.

Is there also a small pocket somewhere at the waistband?

You can thread the tongue of the belt buckle through it to prevent the belt from moving up or down.

Well, upon further examination I definitely agree with you gents. This is why I posted, I want that objective advice. I come off as one of the better dressed associates at my job, but I know full well I can improve. So I appreciate it!

That red tie looks like something anden would Wear, just beautiful.

There is not watch/ticket pocket. Pictured here it's the red/white/blue loop. If it is in fact to secure the buckle, how does it work? I feel like a two year old learning to tie my shoes here. baldy[1].gif

Ok I think I figured it out. I've never encountered pants with this feature. I was unaware of the term bet tongue. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

+1. White shirt with aggressive cutaway is a formal shirt that don't work well with your overall casual outfit. I only wear button downs with sweaters. ( not that this is the only correct shirt, but I tend to only buy formal f2f cutaways or less formals bds). I would also check that tie knot. Looks too big/ not tigtened enough.
