    While this looks nice at first I think the shirt and tie are too city for a sportcoat like this. I think the shirt might pass if the tie wasn't as formal looking though due to the color and texture. I think the square is great.

    You COULD, you just wouldn't have time to put your clothes back on.

    While this looks good, I think the tie and square match a little too much. For some reason I like squares that are somewhat unrealted to the tie.

    Spoo - looking good, though I don't love the square with it.

    Nice to see the tie is still in the rotation. A little redemption for TSB 1

    upr_crust taking your age into consideration I will jump to the conclusion that you have never heard "ether" by Nas. If so I implore that you do because that is what you just did to NORE


    dang son!

    Yes, and myself undraped on the IRT West Side going downtown is not a sight that I would inflict on my worst enemy.

    I like this tie a lot. You might want to experiment a bit: Adjust the collar band to a smaller size. This will make the bow less long. While there is nothing wrong with it, to my eye, the points are sticking out just a bit too wide. Worth a try; see what you think!

    Your dapper appearance today must be a stand out on the streets of Toronto. This would be the perfect look for a visit to the Nicholas Hoare bookstore on Front Street. (The last "real" bookstore in North America!)

    Shy to tell that but this particular tie is unadjustable :embar:

    Good to know about Nicholas Hoare bookstore here in Toronto. I've never been there. In my childhood we had a really big library at home. Today I have kindle and iPad :)

    I'd like to request that Crusty take a video of his reaction as he listens to that song! Greatest dis song ever.
