    Thanks, Clags. Whenever I look at a Navy with white pin dots I feel 'Nay, no really my thing'.
    This, plus the light grey suit pic is nearly swinging me in the direction of a light grey bird's eye from suitsupply.

    I was looking at my recent acquisition and was wondering if navy ties would be too dark to go along with it.
    However, I believe navy ties go well with greys of your shade.
    I have to figure mine out. And I don't know where in the Pacific my Vanda ties are.

    A+ for the voice over work. I like many things about the Kamakura but I usually wear a 17.5 even some shirts 18" neck so I can only wear their New York Classic which assumes I have a giant stomach and has so much excess fabric in my midsection to waist.

    agreements: if you have navy ties you should have gray suits in your fit, and similar ones, blue dots/small neats beat white disagreement sometimes, navy with white dots is the best. for example, in my fit below (sorry for the crappy/close up pic, it was not a fit pic, its a still from a video), with a charcoal flannel suit and white shirt, i firmly believe that had this tie had light blue dots it would have been sub optimal to these white dots.

    (it only has 4 pages worth of shirts, vs 13 for tokyo slim though)

    I will say I have scrolled through those 13 pages of TSF many times and most of them are misses for me. That may only be because I am keenly aware of my need for staple shirts and few of them seem like staples to me. YMMV.

    Calm down, JRD.
    I accidentally reposted the same darn tie post so I had to post something there.

    Tokoyo Slim only goes up to 17" neck 34 1/3 sleeves though. Unless their online store deceives me. Btw thanks for the link on the ties. I didn't kop but I appreciate ya lookin out.
