    No worries. Was just surprised that I hadn't heard about it before.
    In the wild, in case it helps. [​IMG]

    Road courses. I can't imagine spending all that money for 10 seconds or less of racing.

    JR,

    this is a better representation of the green Carter. It's a good spring summer tie. Probably wouldn't wear it deep into fall.

    Mr Six I like that SC! Deets?

    A thought wrt Jungleroller (but also in general):

    I'm not completely sold on the combination although the individual pieces are nice. I do think that these city/casual things can look nice, especially in a context where one wears various fits throughout the week. In the overall context of the fits one wears in a week, mixing it up can be playful etc.

    But since JR has a lot of strongly patterned SCs and is rebuilding his tie collection, I wonder if he should focus so much on neats as opposed to grenadines, other solids, and some nice wool patterned ties. A rust donegal with this jacket would be pretty awesome; or even a rust/burgundy grenadine (grossa). Just a thought.

    Thanks y'all for all the tie recommendations! That's 4 ties that you all have picked out for me. One more coming and I don't know where the Cappelli is.
    I think I might have been brainwashed with images from GQ and others but I think I've turned the corner. Here's to you all who helped out.

    Re-tie the fucking knot, take a picture, and report back.

    (solid combo though *nods approvingly*)

    knot needs some work, but that is an easy fix.

    rudals please post a pic of all your suits post haste.

    thanks,

    it's kinda hard to tie the knot when the tie is thin and flimsy!
    take a second look.
