    That's too bad, but I guess it's ok with NY weather. No idea how you guys wear sportcoats anyway. I spent a whole summer in NYC last year and it was shorts/shirts all day every day, and I still started sweating after walking a couple of blocks.

    Thanks, AAS & T. Having a real hard time finding unstructured coats that fit, most things I find are regulars and I need shorts... the more options I know, the better [​IMG]

    I really like that coat! Deets? On the Square: what IC & you already said. :)
    Sieht klasse aus!
    I dunno about this tie. It's too shiny for my taste…
    I'm always amazed by how much of a gentleman you are while being snarky and, remembering the penor-talk a few days back, sometimes even dirty.

    Everything is awesome, but I think the herringbone tie throws it off. I think the same color in a solid would be great. A black knit would be perfect.

    True on the knit. One of the (firstworld) problems with owning a tie company, too much choice in the morning!

    I do but IRL it matches perfectly. I think the different textures, a slightly over-exposed photo and the limits of a galaxy camera are making them appear just a shade different. You'll have to take my word for it. :)

    I like the color choices on top. I think the PS color is too close to the tie color though. I really don't like that knot. I think four in hand knots work best with knit ties given their casual nature. You mention it's a suit, but the pants look like jeans or navy trousers.

    Critiques welcome and valued as always.

    The knot is a 4IH, probably needed to cinch it a bit tighter.

    See your point on the PS, but I felt that another burgundy reference point was needed to ground the tie to the outfit. This was the only one I could find.

    Trousers on this suit are a bit "directional" (= narrow taper). Crappy iPhone shot makes it difficult to see the 3.5cm cuffs on the trousers. Here's a different shot of the suit from a while back (with my usual trouser sag - I think I need to cinch my belts tighter):

    +1. The tie is not a herringbone, and the weave is not really discernible IRL. It's a mid to dark grey wool, fairly closely woven, with just a slight rusticity (?) to its texture. I think it works with businesswear, although of course I would say that.

    This is a fantastic execution. The tie knot, the collar spread, the pocket square tuck, the pant break. Just spot on. The PS nicely picks up the blue in the shirt and the olive in the PS brings out the suit nicely. The navy/white? tie doesn't sync with the rest of the fit in my opinion. I think a tie with orange or salmon tones would work nicely here. Or trade the square for something with navy tones in it. But I really like that square.

    I think Spoo nailed it, AAS. As for the hank, I should have bought it when I saw it at Barneys. :censored:

    Nice TASSEKS, Spoo.
