    ^ Just change the tie knot from a Windsor to a FiH and you're golden.

    I say go Half-Windsor. Very spiffy, in any case.

    The City Tavern?

    YES! That's it! So, is that the building in your view photo?

    I had to go back and found some photos. So, in the spirit of the thread, here is what I was wearing in 2001. I remember that I found out that George Harrison died while I was in Philly ...

    Never posted in here before, but I thought I'd give it a shot. Props to all the great picture takers in here, I had no idea how hard it would be to get a decent shot of myself...

    Welcome Spizzy. Looking good - as others have noted, experiment with a different tie know (I had to unteach myself the Full Windsor when I got to SF), but the fit is very nice.

    Yep, that's south 2d street. The big building is directly to the north of City Tavern. The towers in your photo are Society Towers, are were at one time of the most exclusive places to live in the city. Still not cheap.

    Thanks! I actually never tie a full-windsor, this was a half- but the tie is a thick material. I shall try a four in hand next time.

    Why did you have to unteach it? It can be great look with the right collar and body/ facial type.

    I covet this outfit. While rather costumey by S/F standards, it's still sharp as hell, and with the right swagger you can surely pull it off.

    Where did you pick up the evening dress? It's stunning!

    So jealous of that 1892 black tie rig T...excellent! March 12, 1892 was the day my great-grandfather entered the US with 2 bags and $10 in his pocket...he would have dreamed f that tux...of course he was 6'2", so perhaps his dream the suit would have been a 44L!

    new year's eve (our digital camera appears to be from the future), decided to go with a suit instead of the tuxedo to see a jazz show and drink/ revel a little.

    Kennedy Center, no? Takes me back to my NoVa days...soft-shell crab at Sequoia followed by a show by the NSO...good times.
