    I think I have 3 solid navy ties, none are silk reppe. Im good.


    Please for sake of all that is good find a way to stop your collars from curling up at the end. Dry clean, iron, longer points, whatever, just get it done please.

    Maybe try a spread collar - it would probably be more flattering to your face shape too

    I think it could look nice. The collar could be different. That one is definitely not 'sf-approved'.

    And I think I'd probably prefer an outdoor picture with better lighting, trading in a picture showing silhouette in a dark room with potato-quality image res. Example: Lighting in my house isn't always great so I go with this.. (if people say 'that doesn't look like it fits' just say, the suit wasn't made to fit perfect while taking a selfie for a ton of dudes. Sorry.

    Nice, RTC. What Stitch said about the collar.

    Actually no stays in the collar that's why it looks bad. You guys had said that ct shirts are too stiff to begin with but that have been my experience so im going to start using the stays for the shirts from now.

    No, those would still be there, just to a lesser degree. I don't put stays in any of mine and they don't curl at all. Ever.

    The problem is not about stays or not. It's about the shape and size of your collar.
