    Well, it's not really something that rules-y or specific. But yes, I think most bows tied today are (1) too tight in the knot and (2) too wide on the neck.

    It really makes no difference, though: a bowtie isn't normal anymore except for black tie. Tie it the way that you like.

    It's harder to tie a bow with shorter length and a looser knot, but the results are certainly worth it.

    Well, by definition style is personal. So, it would follow that to be addicted to style is to be addicted to one's self. And I think it's safe to say 99.9% of SF is self-obsessed**. There's also a dick joke in there somewhere, but it's late.

    **Sir F and stitchy seem to be the lone members obsessed only with other people.

    I tied on a bow myself today. My rule of thumb is usually jaw width, however I'll try tying it looser and smaller next time. the first picture is to show trouser to jacket proportion as well as my new Alden Cordovan tassels which are hardly visible.

    Was there a flash flood today in your area? I wear my pants with no break, but I can't get on board with this.

    Like the color of the pants though and I think the jacket is the perfect length for the laid back, slightly rumpled look you seem to be after. Saw your tassels on Tumblr. They're looking good.

    Weights can be added to hems in general. It's a tried and true technique in women's tailoring. For instance the classic Chanel suit which was once THE outfit for the 'ladies who lunch' often contained a continuous gold chain weight sewn into the hem of the jackets. Chain weights and seam weights all the time in the construction of draperies. However, I've never heard of weights being used in the hems of men's trousers. Although I'm also far from an expert - other's may have some experience in this regard.

    Of course many better RTW suits come with a few feet of cloth tape in a color to match the suit. This is intended to line the inside of the trouser hem in order to provide extra protection against wear. It also adds extra 'body' and weight to the hem and can help prevent a trouser leg from collapsing in on itself at the hem, particularly when cuffs are not used.

    TMI?

    Atrocious shirt choice. I mean, horrid : - ) Your red pants are making a statement. Perhaps consider a white shirt, white square and navy bow next time out (purple does work).
