    This. Is. CLAGHORN.

    No, in al seriousness, I love that outfit and color combination. I just said in the Vass thread that I'm struggling with reddish shoes, and then you put up a fit like that. This is how reddish shoes should be worn. Excellent.

    PEOPLE CAN'T TELL SHHH

    I have like 3 green ties, one of them is a hober grenadine stripe. It is sooo nice. I worry that I will overwear it.

    That was my thinking about a FC. Never too early for another... Now you mention it Clags a single point of reference in a FC often does throw up lots more inspiration and food for thought

    jrd, I'm up for a trade of the SF club tie. I've worn it maybe three times. All three times, I had to deliberately wear it--it wasn't an organic process at all. It's 3.4 inches by 57.5.

    Depending on the formality of the wedding, meaning assuming it was one where a black/silver/PoW was not needed, sure.


    Id be interested.

    Trying to branch out from black/silver/PoW for weddings. So far I've made it to ... PoW with purple or blue overchecks. Ha.

    thanks clag, but i'll defer to stitch for now

    i think i'm going to ask for a few special features on mine

    -3.25 wide
    -Narrower top portion so it ties a thinner knot
    -Thinnest lining

    For me, if its not the kind or wedding where everyone is expected to look formal, I just wear any suit and tie, like I would any other suit and tie day.

    That kamakura stuff is barf. Like CT ties but worse.
