    Is it Drakes of London? I was thinking of buying a tie there.

    I would love to see this outfit again but preferably with a light flannel charcoal trouser...maybe herringbone. Also a different pocket square maybe yellow or purple would go very nicely with the green tie. Maybe even a red and yellow paisley pocket square. Just some thoughts.

    :laugh: Not likely my friend.


    :confused: Maybe the pictures don't show, but the pants are a light charcoal herringbone.

    Thanks, gentlemen but no worries. I will walk close to the edge without jumping into the abyss of joblessness. Just a bit of nose tweaking before full compliance kicks in.


    Well.
    Now I will have to pay closer attention to the things you say.

    Thank you, Tibor, but considering the source of yesterday's suit, I'd be just as likely to be cruisin' down Threadneedle St. to Handel's "Zadok the Priest" - that look is very City of London.

    Yeah, I am going to ask for more space, that was the first thing that I said to myself. Thanks for the compliments though. I feel growed-up. From the waist up :embar:

    It is funny you mention the square loop-d-loop. I have had in my head what you said about just not giving it thought and shoving it in there with an edge showing. That's basically exactly what I did and walla!


    :plain:


    A wider knot? Blasphemy!


    Be careful about that. But when in doubt ass ole' HelmetheadBOOTH!

    Top five pieces of liturgical music ever written IMHO. Spem in Alium (Tallis) = #1, De Profundis (Part) =#2, Zadok (Handel, duh) =3, Requiem in D minor (Faure, I like the Libera Me the best), Ave Maria (Biebl).

    AKA I like your taste in music as much as your taste in clothing.



    I like the palette. Really wish I could rock it.

    If I am not wearing pants, do you want to me in front of me? :confused:

    Thank you. "Zadok the Priest" is the piece sung at the beginning of every choral concert given at St. Martin's in the Fields in London (at least in my experience), and, apparently from the program notes for the concert, it has been sung at the coronation of every British monarch since George II.

    I am unfamiliar with the Tallis, the Faure, and the Biebl, though I am sure that I've got a recording of the Faure somewhere in my apartment.

    This would be a really nice outfit for a sunny/daytime fun event, like a celebratory lunch or as a wedding guest. Assuming you wore the trousers too, that is...

    The tie is just festive enough for formal frivolity. Do you really need tighter cuffs on the shirt? Might bug you in the long term if they get too tight, esp. if you have different watches. Less of a concern with french cuff shirts, because you'll tend to wear those with slim watches only, but barrel cuff shirts you may end up wearing casually and so need a slightly larger cuff.

    I suggest you remedy this straight away! Thomas Tallis remains the finest choral composer England ever produced, closely followed by William Byrd (IMHO).

    I make it a point to always look like a part of me might be attending a wedding. I prefer tighter cuffs. I just think it looks better when you cannot see up ones sleeve. I never wear a watch anymore so it is of little concern.
