    I saw a neat vignette on CBC once about how he gets his jackets made. He goes to Fabricland, and picks out some sort of curtain fabric, or whatever other garbage, and then takes it to a high end tailor who turns it into an abomination.

    @upr_crust glad you enjoyed! You must not have looked at anyone's clothing, lol. I'm still a Toronto boy at heart, though, which explains why I own more than two ties.

    stitchy, the tie is...

    ...Lands End. Not baller at all, and kind of hard to get a decent knot. Thus, the weakness of today's knot. :embar:

    Mine is a wool LE today too, although I find the knot on this one is okay.

    I have one almost like it but from BB. It was 3", had it widened to about 3.5 but the knot still looks weird as well. I love the pattern though.

    Also, here you go, a re-do. You can actually see my face. Myself and a hot friend at a volleyball holiday party. Yes, it's the exact same outfit as before since it was the same party, but the picture actually has clarity. And the.. accessories.. aren't too shabby either.

    I actually did see a few men in suits while in Vancouver, though not when out to dinner - even eating at Jean-Georges Market for dinner, my partner and I were the only men in ties (with the exception of the help).

    Hiking boots were much more useful in Vancouver than neckties - a byproduct of all that massive Nature with a capital N that surrounds the place.

    Funny you would say that, I have a LE tie I bought second hand and it knots way better than the Cappellis or any other ties I have.

    ^^

    That's a lot of grooming for how casual that look is, arnathor. If your hair just does that, you've won the genetic lottery. If it takes a lot of work to get it there, leave a step or two out when dressing this casually.

    Also, I don't like the laceless bean boots as much as I like the bean mocs. I'm sure the long, laceless boot upper holds them on a little better than the mocs do, but it looks a little odd like this.

    Kind of more MC Casual, obviously, but that thread tends to hide from time to time.

    It's not that special of a haircut, plenty of guys wear it like that over here. Just comb your hair after a shower and put some hair product in it. Takes 3 mins max. Blow dry it if you want some more volume.

    I know. It doesn't look precious or anything, just really clean-cut, especially with a totally clean shave. Borderline too clean-cut for super faded jeans, the Bean boot thing, and that sweater.

    Today's work was a mix bit of a mixed bag. Needed to move around without having to worry about getting dirty but also had to stay warm. Sweater is a good merino wool/alpaca blend, so it did the trick outside and the boots allowed me to slush through the snow. But this is why I post, I like the comments and refinements I could make. I wouldn't post to here if I was expecting a variety of opinions.

    I like the call gents!

    I
    . I would skip the product. Blow dry it if you want to shape it, but leave it untethered.

    I used to think that, then I tried it. My hair is about the same length, and pretty thick, and it takes well under 10 minutes to blow dry completely. I started doing it when I was experimenting with ways to eliminate the "wall and curl" look in the front. Just brush it as you blow dry it, and it stays there. I don't out anything in my hair anymore, unless it's really important for it to stay put perfectly all day, or if it gotten too shaggy to manage.
