    This is brand new from Suit Supply, just picked up from the tailor yesterday. You're right, it's a smidge tight in the waist. I'm going to wear it a few times and see how it feels before making an adjustment.

    I rarely post in here, but today for once I was pretty confident about my fit. I left the ties hanging on the rack today. Tax season is over and I'm tired of looking like a drone! Comments and feedback welcome, obviously.

    I also want to say that this thread has been pretty damn inspiring lately.

    G'day Spoo, I must say I am liking a lot of your more coservative outfits and I'm doing a tie almost the same as that next season except a shade more brown. Reason I'm commenting instead of thumbs up is it looks like you are manipulating your knots quite a lot to get that chasm of a dimple in them and it's affecting the actual knot itself, making it too narrow at the bottom and almost symmetrical. I'd love to see it tied slightly looser with a smaller dimple. This is of course objective to personal preference but IMO it goes against the whole point of a four in hand (or double in your case) to me, which is to be imperfect ad asymmetrical. Cheers, Jason

    "thats actually one of your best suits. do you still have it? looks great!"


    Thanks Citan.. It might seem that way but the suit had several issues...


    It was a little too tight in the thight and the lapels for some reason would not sit flat (Hence While I am folding my arms lol) even though I tightened then and even shortened the collar. I came to the realization taht it was probably made for a skinny tall person so I handed it to my cousin...

    Either way the color looked excellent on you as did the peak lapels. I would recommend getting something like it that fits better.

    Thanks, its by Ermenegildo Zegna, SS11. The fit is "Savile", I don't know much about the material. 4 season wool.


    Thanks, the shirts are by Borrelli. They are not MTO, this is right off the rack.


    Mid grey.


    Hi Jason, thanks for the comments. I personally prefer a deep chasm, or a silk vagina in my ties. I do also like to manipulate a 4IH to a more symmetrical look as well. However, this particular tie is an unlined 7 fold by Vanda. The knots on these come out very small or very narrow if I don't mess around with them a bit. Hence the D4IH for more volume. Its a tricky one to work with, but the silk is phenomenal (Vanners). Followed you on tumblr, btw.

    Cheers Spoo, all good. Each to their own. Have followed you back too.


    Thanks, this is actually a herringbone coat by Herrignbone (Sydney). An Australian label. I know of someone selling this same coat in a size 36R if that is your size for pretty cheap. PM if it is and i'll put you in touch.

    Unfortunately, I'm a 39. Great looking coat, though.
