    TKE, you should opt for thinner ties. Both to complement your build/frame, as well as to echo your shirt collars (which are generally more spread and shorter).

    To illustrate this, here your pants are skinny but your tie is very wide (is that 4"?). The contrast is jarring and distracting. The tie itself is also less-than-stellar.

    Good pick up. I've never thought about that. I'll look for thinner ties in the future. And this tie is very old and I don't particularly like it either but I like the colors.

    Wheres PB? No wil.l.in? :nest:


    I agree with this. At most a 3 inch tie would be the farthest I would go with this TKE. Wider ties also take up too much of the shirt's space without a jacket. The tie isn't terrible but looks dated, which makes sense since it is vintage but still.

    Both look great.



    I'm not sure about that bow for after Memorial Day, though.

    Perfectly-tied bowtie in my opinion, SugarButch. I like everything about that look.

    I think it's nice. If I'm being technical, there's extra fabric--that's hanging--at the top-back of the trousers and a bit in the back of the arms (why do so many OTR suits have this?). The back + shoulders fit you surprisingly well! :)

    The sleeve length, SC length, button stance and lapel width are all great!

    If it is part of a suit it is not a sport coat. It is a jacket or coat.

    (SC = suit coat? I've heard it been used for orphaned coats.)
