    What a difference between these 2 suits. First is much better at waist and shoulders I guess Nice ties but seems you matched tie/square on the first?

    Yeah, it's the same square and almost the same color as that tie. It does match the light blue shade in the Versa tie as well. It's a difficult choice between these two suits, I like the Brioni shoulder better, but the Oxxford is nicely tailored IMO.

    It seems that people think matching tie and square is not a good idea that why I was surprised to see that and wanted to confirm ths detail...

    The first is 10 times better on you. I do not talk about construction but fit.

    Look at your arm and shoulders.

    On the second you look to have fat arms, narrow shoulders and no waist.

    The first has nothing of this.

    Forget the second is Oxxford, look only the fit, imagine it was a Boss fused suit, would you still say it looks great?

    [​IMG] Thracozaag and Bradford Oct 13, 2003 Thracozaag was the guest of honor at a charitable fundraiser for the YMCA Board on which I serve. The location was the home of a local billionaires wife here in Paradise Valley. Quite the evening. I'm in a Hart Schaffner Marx suit with a Robert Talbott tie from Nordstrom's that I got for $2 at Phoenix Junior League Rummage Sale. I believe Thracozaag is in Kiton. OK - It's old, but I finally got a computer with a fast enough processor and a cable modem hookup so I can do the ImageShack thing. Bradford

    My point is that there's a time and a place, the Oxxford does deemphasize my shoulders a bit and has a bit less waist supression, it's a different look, more of a boardroom look, a bit less intimidating than the Brioni.

    I personally like matching tie and square sometimes, usually I will go with a color that is similar but not exactly the same. If you saw the square/tie in real life you would see they are not exactly the same color.

    OK - now I'm having fun - another one from last year. Myself, my wife and our son John at his christening. 4 months old then, 16 months now. [​IMG] The suit is a Jones New York that I got for $35 at a consignment store in Scottsdale and then had tailored for another $50. The shirt is a Polo Ralph Lauren that I got at the same consignment store for $5. I'm sure that Ernest or someone will tell me they look like they're worth what I paid  [​IMG] Bradford

    Okay, it looks like my last photo disappeared. Â For those who remember, it was a photo of a buddy and I at a pool hall looking either like 1) We were about to inflict damage or 2) serious damage had been inflicted on us. Â Here is a happier picture of my fiancee and I on a lazy Sunday morning, at her folks house. Â The angle is sort of wierd (damn digital cameras). Â She is wearing a vintage silk shirt, and I'm wearing a Jil Sander shirt jacket. Â The leather bracelet thing you see (I've broken in by mistake since) I picked up from some London based designer. Â I'd like to see a picture of ernest, face and all. Â C'mon buddy. Â Cowboy up and all that. [​IMG]
