    Here paird with:
    - Bespoke pale blue shirt from Luca Avitabile
    - Printed silk tie from Berg & Berg
    - Linen pocket square from Berg & Berg
    - Austerity brouges in Plum musesum calf from Lazlo Vass

    Is it a rule to have your tie positioned like so for a db suit? Or is it just personal preference?

    Great stuff, man! And lovely accoutrement. This is the second time I've admired your attire and the tailoring looks similar. Where do you get your stuff?

    Not a great picture of the clothes, but the striped effect of the shed wall is a bonus.

    No worries - I've never seen anyone besides Dennis position his tie like that in a db jacket - it's his steez.
