    I would agree that a different, less patterned or solid, tie would improve the look

    Given a magic wand, which element would you solidify?

    Also a staple look in the hedge fund and private equity worlds. It's an abomination. And in Europe, they do it with white dress shirts, which is even more boggling. I call it the 'happy hour' look. It's about as unimaginative as you can get.

    Traitor! You thumb-uped me!

    A cream silk square might have come in handy here, but I didn't want to hear all of you guys groan about it.


    My magic wand is already pretty solid.

    I like :foo:'s combo, but if I could change one thing....I'd make the neat pattern on the tie circular or floral or something, not diamond-shaped as it appears. To me it's a bit too many straight lines between the jacket, shirt, and the tie. Needs some dots or other curvy lines to balance it.

    The tie pattern is floral, not diamonds. The petals point north/south and east/west.

    This sounds familiar. I think you tricked me with this same tie in this same way some other time. Anyway, I think it looks diamond-shaped enough I still would like something circular better.

    The reliability of your trips to the gutter is reassuring.

    Well, my height means I'm always closest to the gutter.

    I think the tie is fine - the square is a no go.



    Oh, and the last few pages have been much better.

    You don't like an Argyll & Sutherland tie?
