    Factually correct. Not everyone is fortunate enough to achieve great success and popularity despite having no discernible skills.

    Noodledudes,

    Does this work or is the pindot too busy?
    My first choice is a solid dark navy tie but just thut I try.

    Not too busy, but it looks very shiny there

    A navy pindot goes great with that suit. Now take it to the damn tailor!

    Is yours navy or burgundy, Noodles? It works either way.

    Noodles - the tie is great. Now you just need to get your stuff to the tailor and continue to build your suit wardrobe. Your $500 gift card donation should give you some leeway with the wife.

    With this? …

    [​IMG]

    ^ this was a past attempt with a black knit, but I think it always a bit too black/shiny/crunchy.

    I thinking about wearing this jacket with a white shirt and either dark gray or winter white flannels for Valentimes … trying to go for festive. Yay? Nay?

    Also, Any thoughts for a square? Poof or point white linen, silk, other?

    Thanks again!

    The tie appears shiny but it is from 10 or so light bulbs. It is a vanda grenadine pindot tie. I do think the tie is a bit narrow.

    Archi - my wife at up that gift card with one swipe.

    My two cents: I love the tie and gray wool solids generally, but I also like the knit in your pic.

    I would not wear a square with that jacket as a rule; there's enough going on as it is.

    Winter white flannels (or the palest of gray) would work well there, I think, but I'd be inclined to give a really light tan/wheat trouser a try.

    Thanks heldentenor! How would these work?

    I have tan summer pants, but these are the only ones I have out right now.

    Would you say no square at all?

    I should defer to others who are better at trouser pairings. My gut is that they could work, but I'd worry about those being a bit too dark. I had something like this in mind:

    No square for me on the SC, but if you're going to wear one, simple is better.

    "A" is not good IMO. I like "B", but it's a little big in the shoulders and maybe a little on the short side.
