    I like the shirt and collar. It looks like the picture is really brightly lit or the white shirt is throwing things off. But as it is on my screen, I don't like the color of the tie. It looks kind of like a muddy and greenish brown rather than a deep chocolatey brown.

    @mrjester I think you could do a white shirt with that tie, but you'd have to wear a different suit--something more summery, like a lighter blue linen. Even then, I think the color of the tie just doesn't work with white. Everyone seems to hate hearing it, but light blue would be better. I think cream might work. Also a brown stripe like this would be good.

    Jacket looks awesome, and the tie is nice too. Here are some tips:
    • Tie a nicer/tighter knot
    • A light blue shirt usually goes much better with a brown tie. Give it a try and see for yourself.
    • The square complements the tie nicely, but I'm not a fan of the fold. Try the foo fold next time: http://www.tweedinthecity.com/2013/01/31/bend-it-over/

    By the way y'all, who's rooting for which country in the World Cup?

    almost a G on C&Js makes me sad.

    Yes, GGs are all over a G. I have 7 or 8 pairs I think. All bought brand new, and aside from the MTO, I paid in the 450-750 range for all of the rest. I has my ways.

    never had an interest in used shoes, personally.

    also, after doing custom/MTM and finding RTW brands that fit right, i find it hard to take the gamble with pre-owned. risk not worth the reward of the price drop for me right now.

    ---

    jester, i dont think that is bad, just bland perhaps. colors are pretty tame, tie color is not particularly awesome, and there is no texture i can see to make up for the tame colors.

    US, then Italy. In past years I rooted for Italy begrudgingly because, even though I love the country, the style of its soccer team was frustrating. Now they're more fun to watch.

    Also, go spurs.

    I'm flying straight into Texas, so no worries; I won't have to deal with American immigration. And I'm very, very Texan.
    Me too, but I had a nice sized windfall and some went to those. They just fit so. damned. well. I paid much less for the second pair (which are waiting for me in Texas)
