    Nice one, Vic!




    I dig the whole setup, nice one, Crusty!

    This one just says: "Get the fuck out of my way or you´ll be overrun". Wow, Spoozer.




    Damn, now that is an arch on the tie and a great knot. I´m envying you right now.

    And there goes my stuff...

    They're LP, but I can't remember what material they are. Yeah, they're cool. Just needing more ideas how to use them...

    Crusty, while we are on the topic of hats, I can't remember off the top of my head (pun intended) if you have ever worn a Homburg hat. I think it would suit your style.

    You look great today, HF. Everything goes well together.

    I like the paisley tie, Dennis.

    As it is, I do own a black Homburg, and I have posted pictures of myself wearing it, though it teeters dangerously on the borderline of "costume" (and, I am sure, that there are those out there who feel that it falls very much over the border - but that's not unusual with many of my fits - c'est la vie en rose).

    Ok, level with me fellas, is the chest just too big on this one for me? It's a 42L (which is my normal size), and I already had my tailor bring the waist in a bit (I think...I don't recall now), but I think it looks a bit big in the chest. Does it look salvageable to you all?

    Cheers, yup, Ercoles.


    Thanks FM, Tie is actually raw silk, and anything but slick, photo doesn't really capture the uber texture this has. Its actually a vintage piece Ercole had made a VERY long time ago, Frank may have been just a glimmer in his eye when that tie was made.


    :lol:


    Better than horribly frozen head day.


    Thanks Jay.

    I like the tie but as the others have said, way way to tight. I know you have copped this criticism before so I don't mean to be piling on, but the button is pulling sideways at the button point it is so tight. Overall both the jacket and trousers look a size too small, even for a slim fit.
