    I thought the Frick very tastefully displayed GWAPE. It is behind glass, yes, but their crowd control policies mean that even on the busiest of days it is not assaulted by hordes of gawkers à la Mona Lisa and a regular Joe like myself can get a good look at it.

    A really marvelous work. Amazing to think that fully 1/9th of Vermeer's (non-disputed) catalogue is currently at the Frick...

    So is the announcement Marriage?

    Side Question, how do you like Cottonwork? I'm working with ProperCloth currently with a few MTM shirts but always good to see what else is out there.

    Serious question...

    With a fit like titsworth's... is it normal for the jacket to 'skirt' out at the end? Is that a function of having wider hips or could that be 'solved' by having a couple of darts on the front of the jacket? Silhouette's like that just look rumpled to me for no good reason.

    Not sure what you mean by skirting.

    I think he means the open fronts (or quarters as they say here). It's caused by the cut of the jacket. Probably looks a bit more severe due to the bit of pulling at the bottom button area. Commonly caused at this time of the year by too much fun at Christmas in my experience (or maybe a chunky belt?). Tits, I think the fit would be more balanced with a wider tie.

    No belt. It doesn't appear to be pulling when I just checked - in fact it's been a bit loose recently. That was before the holidays though/ The picture was taken this afternoon rather in the morning, so it may just be showing that I've been sitting around in meetings all day.

    Tie is 3.5in, but it's unlined. I almost pulled out something with more body, but it's 65 here today and the Vanda just felt more like embracing the warm spell. I'll consider going with something more full bodied in the future though.

    Agree, a pocket square would be very complementary there.

    Other than that, very dapper, black_umbrella.

    I dunno, the color palette is so limited a square could be tricky. I'd like to see a little more texture to the shirt, but that's kind of a nitpick.

    I should clarify: The question is not asking for why he did not wear a sqaure. The question is asking whether or not there is one. Personally, I rather like the unbroken line of the check at the pocket. This would be interrupted by the introduction of a square.
