    So I got this knit tie that's too long except if I knot it with some bulkier knots. But I don't want my knot to be bulky. So is it okay to tuck the tie into my pants or slip it between the lower buttons of my shirt? I think it won't be noticeable since I'll be wearing a jacket. Thanks.

    How can I sell something on this site? Can't seem to find the "List Item" option anywhere in the B/S section...

    Looks far too large in the shoulders, to me (though it's a bit hard to tell due to the flash throwing glare). They're hanging off the edge of your shoulder blade. Looks like you could size down one, maybe even two.

    ^ Penny is better I think. I don't "get" the tassel. Why not add some bells to jingle along as the tassel bounces up and down? For some reason it reminds me of a fishing lure. I've seen too many tasseled loafers + double-breasted suit combos (blech) that I've grown to detest that shoe. Too be fair, it does have its place. A tasseled loafer, pleated chino, and denim shirt w/ the name of your company is a good way to class up an IT convention.

    I like Tassel to be honest. I love my #8 shell tassel loafers. Personally, I feel like penny loafers are also more ubiquitous. I think that tassel loafers can be 'fuddy-duddyish' but it is wholely dependent on the last.

    For example:

    Sexy.

    And these are my pair:

    Sorry for the crappy pictures...

    But penny loafers can be pretty sweet too:

    In the end, it is more a function of the last than anything. Both classic designs, both can potentially be old-manish, but on the right last with the right design, they are both excellent choices. So I guess it is more of a personal opinion thing.

    I'm going back home from a student exchange on Sunday and will be travelling around for 14 days. I'm a bit confused about packing the suits (2 suits) and shirts bought here. I'm thinking about packing the shirts into a bag and just vacuuming the air out of it as I am pretty limited with the space in my luggage. What's the best way to pack the suits? I was considering just carrying them in a suit bag with me on a plane and then letting them hang in the hotel.

    Here is the A Harris method:

    I think you will be fine folding them. You could also ship if you are that worried. It wouldn't be more than 30-40 dollars.

    Ok, thanks.

    Gdot, Now that you mention the suit thing, I was also concerned about the dark buttons, I'm thinking now that it can even be an orphaned jacket sold at the outlet ?

    Minarchist, you may be right about the shoulders. It protudes a little but, as the rest fitted well I though I could live with that.

    So, final verdict: Return it ? Anyone against ?

    Or, just leave the smaller blade longer than the front.

    Everybody loves a bit of Sprezzatura.

    Hi Guys
    Need some inspiration here. Just bought a pair of Bordeaux-red Chinos, but what can I combined them with? Any ideas? I was thinking Navy-blue driving mocs/loafers and a crisp white shirt?!

    Short answer: no.

    Slightly more helpful answer: I think venetians are a lot more stylish and classic.

    My friend's first reaction to my Venetian Loafer is - OLD MAN!!!

    Personally I would pick Penny Loafers.

    I may be attending an opening of an exhibit at the art museum. I am a little confused as what would be appropriate to wear for an event like this. My friend who attends many of these events and other social events suggested "summer dressy, but not necessarily a tie." What's the consensus here?
