    Trying to find some actual applications to wear this tie in. Went for a bolder look today, feel like it was mostly a fail but meh. Power clashing? [​IMG] [​IMG] Did I overdo the waist on this jacket? [​IMG] [​IMG] These trousers are too baggy [​IMG] And forgot to censor my gross room. Fuck it!

    Not 100% on that tie, but if you must, charcoal suit, white shirt (or very pale blue) and white ps.

    acecow--that bag in the picture Saturday errands is mad feminine.

    No man should have an unisex cotton tote...go look again. I'm serious by the way.. reevaluate that

    Firstly, I want you to now that this is a discussion not an argument. No straight man should own that bag. If you are gay then I understand...I have nothing against them,teh gheys that is.

    At first, I thought you were having a laugh, but are you seriously serious? A navy tote with orange straps is "mad feminine"? But it's okay if he's gay? Perhaps cronictroll would be a better name...

    Thanks, I'll give it a try. It's a cool design but as with most things Etro, difficult to actually pull off. [​IMG]

    Actually, it is red and navy, pretty standard combination. My camera phone is crap and white balance is retarded, so red looks more like orange. But honestly, I think that bag is fine for what I use it for.

    Great suit, great tie, the problem is that they don't go together. The tie would be amazing with a blue shirt and tan jacket or suit. The green tie needs earth tones as a compliment or to compliment.

    The suit, has an attractive light blue over plaid going through it. Highlight that. I assume from the pics that it is blue over a black POW. My suggestion would be to either wear a medium blue shirt and a solid black tie knit tie or keep the white shirt and get a blue and black rep tie or blue and black knit like these from this thread:

    or

    Do either of these do it for you??? I think both of them would be classic especially with your white pocket square.

    ^ There's no light blue IRL. That was a trick of the lighting (maybe the blue sky). Suit is straight up black and white glenplaid. I just wanted to keep a neutral background to let the tie stand on its own.

    I can see a light blue over plaid pattern on your suit clearly on my monitor. Any chance you have trouble distinguishing yellows and blues?? It is common. Especially light blues.

    Regardless, the tie isn't the right choice for that suit with or without the blue over plaid. It needs earth tones like a tan suit. The ties I suggested would be appropriate for the suit even without the light blue over plaid.

    I see it too. Also, luftvier, I always feel like your fits would benefit from some different collars; have you tried any that have a nice spread? Might just be me but I'm not a fan of being able to see the tips of shirt collars, especially when they have that curled-look to them. Just a suggestion!

    I understand both points. Seated poses tend to emphasize every ounce of excess avoirdupois - the pose that I took in today's "extra" shot avoided most of that phenomenon. Trust me, I am more than somewhat sensitive to looking fatter than IRL.

    Hadn't even thought about the "fattening effect". I just think sitting poses tend to look er... not so good.

    The extended version was a pleasure to read. Thank you.

    My first waywn post. This is what I taught in today. Had to snap it fast. Can't wait to learn.

    Tie looks a bit cheap / dated.

    I'm not a fan of totes, either, but if anything is mad feminine in this discussion, it's the phrase, "mad feminine."

    Some might even say it's fierce.
