    So, to sum up: four posters chime in. All three options now have at least one detractor.

    Who says the Noodles thread makes people spend money?

    I'd like suede loafers to be a little more rounded. Chiseled like that make me think of footwear on the more formal end of the spectrum.

    I only have on pair of loafers, cordovan penny loafers from AE. But if I had two...or if I could do that purchase over again:

    One detractor for each but some love for each - so I'm happy :)

    I am done! Just whapped up prep'n for the yr end boawd meeting. Getting home at midnight displeased someone.

    Glad to see that this thread is very active and is actually talking about menswear.

    As for this thread causing mohr people to kop, I think there is a very strong correlation between time spent here and kopp rate.

    Other than your suit, this thread hasn't really affected my rate of acquisition. If anything, it's slowed. I've even skipped the last two sales at my favorite local shop.

    I know helping others shop and hunting down good ties on sale somewhat curbs my desire to buy.

    The economy considers you both intensely dislikable degenerates.

    I think the tie is a bit too dark for the rig, but the rest is legit. Id try a green tie that pics up on the green of the square.
