    I'm a fan of the Barba collars and Spandexter's spread, personally

    I don't want to count my ties or squares. The ratio is not 1:1. I plan for more of both, probably 3:2 ties to squares. I have a number of squares that I got because I like the cloth. They're lovely and usable, just not heavy-rotation material.

    The clothes I no longer want I give to a local organization that helps people trying to find employment. But there will be some discards in the near future that might go to Spoo.

    I will most likely donate them. You don't write off the full MSRP, but there are calculators you can use. They aren't anything nice enough for Luxeswap (mostly BB) and no, I don't necessarily need the money.

    200+ ties (of which I don't use much more than 20 or so) + ~20 squares (of which I don't use more than 5 -6 regularly).

    Also, JRD, is it a bespoke project?

    Don't know if it's good in your opinion, but here's one of me ~2 years ago.

    I often wear Chelsea's with my windowpane suit as well. Unfortunately, they don't show up too well with the picture I have.

    Seeing as the Noodles thread discusses anything and everything, have you ever considered a different hairstyle, Claghorn? I'm sure there are many that would suit you better than a bieber cut.

    I just needed a haircut at that point. That's as long as it gets. Then I get it cut short. It grows to that length, then I cut it short again.

    Ah, that makes sense. I thought that length was your normal hairstyle.

    Fwiw, I usually get my hair cut every 3-4 weeks. The shorter your hairstyle, the more often you need to get it cut. When I had longer, surfer style hair I usually got a haircut every 2 months or so.

    I get mine every 4-6 weeks. I find haircuts incredibly annoying
