    In principle, I like this one though it has a "red white and blue" feel to it so I wonder how it would work (I think it's actually brown not red, but nevertheless...).

    Honestly, I don't spend that much time on Style Forum these days and trying to spend less time, so embedding pics is not something I devoted much time to figuring out. But I wanted to get those lovely Vandas up!

    I like the easy going camaraderie of this thread and I find myself checking it periodically despite trying to stay away. People do seem to be genuinely good-natured and short conversations like this one on striped ties still give me ideas.

    BTW: what do you pair the Vandas you highlighted with?

    Oh shit! Right on. I was trying to find something along these lines:

    The Shibumi has a bit more brown, though it might just be the picture. Regardless, I think the Vanda might be a smidgen more versatile because of the yellow

    Hmmmm...I should sneak into Stitchie's closet and try on his Formosa(?) suits and see how they fit and run away.
    Am I crazy?

    Personally I don't find it to have much of a 'Murica feel but YMMV.

    The brown raw silk I like to wear with cream/off-white linen jackets and suits. The wool one I think I have worn with a gray flannel suit.

    Yes, he has much broader shoulders than you. Your issue seems to be that you buy a size too small to fit around the chest and shoulders, but it doesn't hang right from the nipples down, tugs on your belly, and is too short. I fear you might have the same issue here. But I don't have a Formosa suit, so I'm just guessing from your and Stitchy's relative proportions - as they appear, anyway.

    Noodles is in denial guys. He's trying to squeeze himself into that 38R... and he's selling both of his 40Rs on the B&S.

    Basically, he's selling all of his well fitting stuff, and keeping the ill-fitting stuff. BAD NOODLES!!!!! Poor decisions. This is worse than the NM tie meltdown.

    He needs group support. In a tail spiral. Regressing to his previous state concerning sizing!!!!!

    He said this about the grey Zegna via PM
