    Gents,

    Here are a couple of photos of yesterday's outfit:

    Journeyman, I like it. What colour is the shirt - it looks blue in one shot and white in another. It looks like you borrowed my old camera to take your photoe [​IMG]

    Where's the tie from?

    Gerry, thanks to the camera in my iPhone 3GS, the first photo is a bit underexposed, whilst the second is a bit overexposed! The shirt is just your typical "university stripe" blue-and-white Oxford shirt.

    The tie is by Ascot, a German tie maker. They are available in some stores in Oz, from various places on the Internet (including Ben Silver in the US) and from Ascot's own website (although there aren't any knits listed there at present). They are fantastic ties and, in my opinion at least, are as good as Drake's at about half the price). I've got nine or ten, in assorted colours. They are wonderfully crunchy, with a nice, springy hand and they are decently wide, too.
