    As I said in another thread, for me the only thing better would have been to spend 3.5 hours with Leo Strauss, or else Machiavelli himself.

    Another old pic. This tie always photographs way shinier than IRL. It's twill and actually has a pretty dull finish. Square is white linen.

    Both of these last two are really great, I think.

    Moo, I think the tight fold and the square's pattern are at odds.

    It's linen, though. I always fold linen and poof silk. No?

    That is outstanding. Fantastic.

    Is that Solito? I love the draped chest.

    +1 I think it's one of Manton's best ever.

    I hear you, but in this case, I don't think the rule is helping.

    Sorry, Moo.

    Not feeling the first one. I think the boldness of the tie and PS are at odds with the muted finish of the jacket. Will describes the problem well:

    Like the second one a lot better, but IMO, that PS is quite distracting.

    I personally think the scale of the striped in the shirt and the jacket are too close. Also, the collar on the shirt isn't my favorite.
