I'll tell him that you disapprove.
Looks great Charlie.
LOL amen to that brother
In regards to the double FIH, get the basics right first (regular FIH). I'm not a fan of this knot personally as I think it just looks a bit affected and is definitely a SF groupthink thing. Only time I can see it appropriate over a regular FIH is if you are short and you have a lot of tie length to take up. Hope that helps.
This is just 10/10 stars!
The combination is looking good, i would recommend you however a brown tie.
I hope she wasn't too late for your girlfriend experience. I told her to light a fire under it.
Thanks, The FIH and the half windsor are what I have been using years, I thought I would try to switch it up to something a little different but I guess I'll be going back to them.
next time you must bring your gf out
and make sure she brings some friends with her
oh and where did you get your shirt?
I think I speak for all of us.
Amazing...however, do not look at the bottom right corner of the last picture. NSFW man camel toe alert!
That's one of my Modern Tailor shirts. Told you they were awesome!
woops... I can assure you however it's from leaning forward in my chair and not due to the tightness of my trousers.
Just because you don't like something, it doesn't make it SF groupthink. A double four-in-a-hand is indiscernible from a regular FIH by anyone but us clothes-nerds. It has a handful of positive aspects: It has a slightly larger sized to fill your collar if needed, and keeps the asymmetry of the regular FIH. It's no harder to tie than the FIH. I have one tie that, for whatever reason, it just works better than the FIH. I would be wary of declaring what's classy and not classy, or whats SF approved or SF groupthink.
I say people should experiment and try to figure out what works with them. Most would agree a windsor throws the proportions off a bit, but for us with slightly less luxurious neckwear, maybe we need the size a double four-in-a-hand can offer.
