    OK, I took your spouse's advice and went and fucked myself.

    Now I'm back, and I still think they should go out to the grass with you in the mornings to take fit pics.

    Just a friendly FYI, Cappelli's 7-fold unlined ties are extremely light. They're lovely, but you might want to consider using a DFIH and thus account for that by having some extra length.

    Cheers...I was actually more interested in the wools, though they, unfortunately are currently beyond me as I blew my fall splurge budget on squares (from ET).

    Thanks, man. I was quite happy with that pic, and I love those shoes.

    They are very nice @in stitches , I've been looking at them for some time as not in my collection (!) and your pic on El S has pushed me over the edge :slayer:

    Love the strides too, it has to be said!

    How does one properly take off a tie? I used to do it by pulling the little blade through, but i feel like I'm damaging the tie...

    The reverse of how you put it on: remove the back blade from the keeper, loosen the knot, pull the front blade carefully back up through the knot, etc.
