    This looks great but I don't think this look is ideal for younger less conservative folks. Not taking anything away from the OP he looks awesome. Great fits, nice color coordination and interesting tie.

    Do you find the suit helps to deter helicopter parents from making unfair criticisms? I'm not a teacher, but I'd be interested to know your experience.

    Both fits look nice :slayer:

    IrateCustomer: Why bother with the tie? Leaving aside the diamond pattern on the sweater vest (and it would be better left aside), the tie doesn't dress up the combo, it just makes you look like you're working at the upscale hi-fi store or that you're the IT guy trying too hard. Wear something that works with a tie or don't wear a tie.

    TB, I gave you a thumbs up because I really, really, really like your outfit.
    Still I always wonder if you could profit from greater cuffs. You are a tall guy and could pull off another inch imo.

    SS, I'm now seeing tie pins (is there a special name for the safety pin type tie pin?) everywhere I look. They seem to be in heavy use in Boardwalk Empire with the better dressed characters.

    I have to wear a tie. And since I'm just now starting pick up SCs, I'm trying to rotate sweaters and the like. I know the tie/sweater was going to miss with most folks on here, but its what I wore, so fuck it. As stated it was chilly, but warmed up this afternoon, so half the day was spent sans vest. I wasn't trying to dress up the fit with the tie, but moreso soften the tie up.

    Until I get a navy solaro suit, this tie ia going to be be a challenge, and I'm fine with that as its part of the fun.

    I take it there are no decent thrift stores in the Armpit of California. One navy SC will go a long way, though. Maybe one of them joints from Lands End?

    Well, if you must wear the tie, you get the Official Digmenow My Boss Makes Me Wear This Hall Pass[​IMG].

    I moved out here to Central Cali (what most consider the armpit of Cali) from Baltimore and New York and find that shopping out here is atrocious.. I have to buy online or wait to go back to the east coast a couple times a year when I can to shop.. cant shop in the bay OTR anyways because most of the stuff is made for guys 6 feet and under and a buck fifty and some change and not a guy my size (6"8, 250).. and forget thrift..I don't know where he lives but I can testify to that if he lives around these parts..
