    Am I crazy for liking this tie?

    It's $12. It seems versatile enough having a brownish base.

    Stop obsessing over height. No rules whatsoever for DBs, except that they shouldn't have notch lapels.

    H&B would be great with a CBd suit.

    Other one do not like.

    The rule, imo, is that the cut of the suit, be it DB or SB, 2 button or 3, should be right for your build. Thats it.

    Indeed, there are no special rules for DBs, so Rudals should definitely give it a try!

    Thoroughly agree with both the above comments. This is my Soho DB in Carlo Barbera super 130's charcoal stripe. Bought it off the rack from the SS Shanghai store. Required no alteration whatsoever, just hemming the trousers (and now I deeply regret not having them cuffed).

    Accessorised here with fedora, spectators and loud tie/socks for double-plus-FUness.

    Not sure if this look would fly at CIA headquarters or wherever it is you work, Rudals. But maybe in a dark charcoal, with sober accessories...?

    He took his G&G bespokes off for the commute home. They're in that blue bag.

    Thank you!
