    Wouldn't those things leave nasty great holes in your collar points? I used to have something similar, but it had little clips - got it at Gowings. In the absence of Gowings I just don't know where you source these sort of slightly anachronistic, yet intersting, men's accessories (eg arm bands, shirt studs, a good range of braces, tie clips etc).

    Wow I think that's the first Indochino I've seen that looks good. Granted I've only read through the thread a few times but it seems to be 99% disasters on there. You seem to be the 1%.

    Sorry should have said -- I'm thinking about doing the 'safety pin' thing with knit ties.

    Looks good, but I reckon that particular knot is not suited to that collar. I suspect that is a four in hand. Try the half windsor or the shell knot. Google tie knots, first image.

    i'd probably go for a full windsor knot.

    Disagree I'm afraid. Taking away my own personal biases because it's my tie, I think a well tied 4IH is almost always better looking, especially for young guys. This tie also, is a nice thick twill and self tipped throughout the length and would come up huge in a windsor or even half. I'm actually surprised he managed to make the knot as small as it is. So in conclusion, I'd say a thicker 4IH would be better.

    Long torso leads to small tie knots :( should have got the extra length on reflection. As for Indochino, the quality isn't bad for what you pay. The majority of them look terrible because people don't know how to measure themselves correctly.

    When I have to get gold off of guitar parts (which are actually nickel-plated brass with a gold coating) I use Brasso and a rag. Comes right off. NevrDull, which you can get at SuperCheap Auto, is even easier but it's more expensive.

    The FIH is the ne plus ultra of tie tying, and as a backup all you need is the double FIH (blade through one loop or two depending on the tie).

    Sounds good to me. I think I have Brasso, so will give it a go this weekend. Thanks for the tip.
