    Fuck you all. You just can't stand that jacket's teutonic glory. :slayer:

    This is my theory: one starts out with hubris, then tempers that with actual knowledge gained through experience and retrospect.

    Today might not be Manton CBD due to red tie, but it's a BB No 1 Sack & classic BB tie, so I think that counts. (Not pictured — navy silk knot links, Barrie LTD Bootmakers dark cherry shell PTBs). PS is also a bit flashy — might have to tone it down. I tucked it in after this shot.

    you need to look into eric glennie ties that way the stripe on your knot will go in the same direction as the ones on the blade.

    Very pale pink (2x200 Alumo made by Sean O'Flynn). May not count as CBD anywhere else, but it works in London

    Thank you

    Yesterday was pretty warm, but it has cooled down a lot today, and it is back to grey skies

    Suit is 8/9oz, so even if it had been warmer it would have been pretty comfortable

    I am guessing that is 501, one shade darker than 500. I have 501 myself.

    Wtvr it is, color looks great, I think that's definitely the first fresco fabric I would get if I were to get any at all
