    Made these for a "no tie" contest in another forum, so... no tie.

    Today there are some wedding and birthday events in the hotel I work. So I try it with this 3-pieces kiton suit and a navy grenadine tie from shibumi

    While unbuttoned, that suit is incredibly slimming on you. Looks like you've got 'the X' while buttoned though. Still looking great.

    I like this no tie contest. Hopefully this Fridays contest is a No Tie.

    It's 'no tie' day here for me until mid October.

    We've had a no tie contest before. Friday challenges are getting a bit stale if you ask me. Always with the crazy this, or bright that. Needs an overhaul I think.

    A summary outfit today, linen shirt, linen/cotton DB, cotton tie and cotton square. An interesting detail of the square is that all the shapes have a shining gold outline. Normally I'd find gold details quite distasteful, but it's so subtle here that you hardly notice it. It's something only I know is there, and perhaps a remarkably astute observer. The image is a recreation of a japanese woodblock painting (one of my favorite art-forms), two birds sitting on a branch of a blossom tree.

    Agreed. It's OK to repeat some, I think. The best I've seen was TTO's four patterned. But another tie-less challenge would be OK, or maybe just a color themed. Like your country, favorite sports team, etc. I think that could be cool.. gives you plenty to work with.

    Yeah, those would all be ok I guess. None of them really makes me super excited though. I'm biased, but I thought my suggestion of making the challenge a theme based one was fun. Like, everyone wear what you'd wear to the races, or to a night club. No restrictions or required items. We just vote based on how good people would look in the context that was chosen.

    True. I also had an idea of wearing something in your wardrobe that you haven't worn in a long long time.

    But then realized I have thrown out everything I owned except 1-2 pair of pants outside of 6 months ago. So I figured some other people may have done the same.

    That's not a bad idea. Would have to be on the honors system of course, but it could be fun.

    They all are somewhat. This one more than others, yeah.

    I really wish I could pull off a DB. I mean, I know I'd look great in it (duh...) but, no place to wear it to. An SC in Phoenix is out of place already. If I got one for $700, it would probably literally be at $175 Cost Per Ware.

    I'm 6'1, 170lbs - a 38L with a pelvic tilt and 11.5US feet. I will never find something at that price that fits well.

    Ever.

    If I had a dollar for every time I've seen you mention your "pelvic tilt" on this forum...

    You should definitely wear it open. This suit really flatters your proportions. Though I suggest you wear braces instead of a belt. Belts if worn with vests should be entirely covered by the waistcoat and mustn't be seen.

    I third this...but it's not like anyone cares what I have to say yet. Those brown captoes you have would have been a much better choice. That being said, the outfit itself looks great and you get bonus points for the crusty stache.

    I'm 6'2, 185lbs, no pelvic tilt and 11US feet, so not that much of a difference. I don't see what your shoe size has to do with blazers though, not exactly relevant.
