10x better than Herringbone.
And they have put some cheap sale stock up:
Wool; from Vanda Fine Clothing.
These are meant to be 3.5" (approx 8.8 cm). But with the hand construction, the tie doesn't 'sit completely flat' [I can't think of a refined way of saying this]. Instead, it has a bit more 'body' and so, it appears to be between 3 and 3.5" (7.6 to 8.8 cm)
Ah, ok thanks.
The suit is midnight - sorry about the white balance.
I take your comments on the PS-tie combination under advisement. I realised the the 2nd (brighter) PS would be a bit trickier to pull off which is why I paired it with a plain (albeit textured) tie. The converse logic applied with the Black Watch tie (patterned tie with plain PS).
Thanks for everyone who's chimed in regarding the shoes.
I think the slight difference between yourself, Geoff, and my colleague's fiance is that she's vegan, not just a herbivore (which I take it to mean 'vegetarian'). My colleague is just doing what he can to accommodate his fiance's beliefs.

Look to Alan See for inspiration on that combo http://lnsee.tumblr.com/
ACTUALLY, he's been digging deeper into the issue of mulesing. Apparently it's common in Australia (but banned in NZ, for example).
And it was at this point of time, that I said out loud to him: "It really isn't a wonder why most vegan activists dress the way they do."
I'm never going out with a vegan chick, that's for sure.
No socks alert.
And a brown-and-blue combination alert.
