    There was no thinking. It was originally made with no lapel hole at all and I said "Hey, I like to wear a flower, this needs holes." And it came back with one, angled down. At first I was [​IMG] but then I figured, since I always wear a flower with black tie and no one would see it, I would just roll with it. No way to add another though, because two angled down would look even worse than one.

    Fair enough. But now you've given me a dilemma: I was pretty set on two horizontal ones, but your solution doesn't look half bad. Hmm.. oh well, no rush to order it.

    There was no thinking. [...]

    You mean except for the 4 or so pages in the aforementioned thread dedicated to this very question? [​IMG]
    fwiw, I think this configuration looks excellent, single and angled down.

    Ok, one of the pictures on the previous page sparks the question. Club collar, CBD, or not? I vote not.

    Yesterday (Sunday). Full shot is a little distorted; Mrs. O was standing too close when she snapped it.

    Another BB sack and a subtle (?) color scheme homage to the event announced yesterday. Fit pic is b/w becuase of the poor lighting from the overcast day. There's more detail to be seen in the b/w photo. Think I am going to take the sleeves up 1/4."

    "Last night I felt a great disturbance in the Force - as though millions of Republican voices suddenly cried out, 'FUUUUUUUUUUCK.'"

    p.s. The tie has white and red; the PS has white and red. This would strike many as matchy/matchy. I would opt for white linen, though I know that there are those who think white shirt/white PS is too much. I've always found it to work just fine. Otherwise, this looks pretty crispy.

    I originally had a plain white PS but opted, for the sake of celebration, for the red-edged Kent Wang PS instead,

    I shouldn't technically be in this thread, as my workplace doesn't by any means require CBD. But anyway:
