    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.

    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.

    Great fit. Love the pants and the pink.

    Super elegant as always. Sweet vest and chain. I really like this bow tie on you. I feel the other one you posted in this tread is too wide and not tall enough for your face. The paisley and stripes look great.

    @an Acute Style

    Thanks for the feedback. Glad you like the fit. The sc is Miller's Oath, pants are cashmere Loro Piana and Lidfort shoes.

    I will work on my camera skills. Btw, yours and Gerry Nelsons are impeccable.

    Totally forgot about the FC when I got ready for work today. Dammit.

    I had no intention of participating in the FC, but I let my wife choose a tie for me and coincidentally it turned out to be a bow-tie.

    Nice fit and bow tie, but I think the bow tie is too wide for your face/is too large in general. I like the color and pattern of it.

    You could be right. I wouldn't want to go much smaller, but perhaps a bit smaller would be better. Thanks!

    I saw in Neiman Marcus today a line of pretied, clip-on bow ties by Tom Ford starting at $250. Such a contradiction.

    I remember when it was a rite of passage to learn how to tie one.
