    im not sure if suppression is the way to go, but i think the jacket would be a tad nicer with some more curvature. nothing major, its certainly fine as is.
    thats darby, more commonly known for playing varys on GoT.
    love it.
    the bold should clear that up.

    Yes, that's what I meant. Unfolded the cuff is about 5 inches. He's going to chop off about 2 inches or so adding an extra 0.5" or so to the length of my sleeve. We'll see.

    Maybe, but it looks like the underlying body wouldn't take any more suppression without looking tight. Of course I'm not implying he's fat! The jacket looks fine as is, IMO.

    That boutonniere looks sad. Throw it all out.

    That's a made to measure (medida industrial) jacket from Sastrería Roma, in Madrid. Trousers are from the same source.


    I mentioned Stitchy does it right. Problem is most people don't, and their half windsors look like random wedding, prom, bus driver, salesman, etc. knots. But the knot itself isn't bad per se, I guess.

    Is that a glen plaid hank or did you stuff a sock in there? Never imagined that would look good, but it actually looks amazing! The whole outfit looks very well put together, definitely one of the best I've seen on SF yet, and I don't say that lightly.

    Nothing wrong with half windsors imho, they look good if you know how to knot them. Full windsors are too symmetrical and (most often) bulky though (should add another "imho").

    Beautiful tie and horn (?) buttons. Nice cloth - what is it? I would have liked to see the whole fit, is it a suit?

    I really like the creativity with pattern and texture on this one. The p-square pattern is completely unexpected but appropriate. Textural contrasts are well done and the soft collar points (I am assuming there are no stays) bring suit cloth and square together. Judging from the lift of the collar portion of your right lapel the cloth looks very light weight. Is this right? What is it?
    The past few weeks have shown the appropriateness of the knit tie for a casual touch in the summer. Chalk another one up to Team Knit!

    Thanks for the comments and thumbs.

    McBindle, the suit fabric is a pretty open weave which makes it good for San Francisco summers, but the texture allows me to wear this in the fall and winter as well. I'm not sure what the fabric is because it's a RTW suit and it just says Super 120.

    Smith & Rutherford. Seriously heavy silk tie and far and away better than anything BR will ever offer. It may not be pretty but it ain't cheap! :satisfied:

    Sorry I was at work all day.

    Back on the topic of my comically large knot - it was a windsor tied poorly, it was not intended to be that big.

    I'm not a fan of 4 in 1 hand because it's too asymmetrical. I like symmetry and formality in knots.

    So half windsor it is? Can anyone show me a picture of a "properly-tied" one?
