And it looks outstanding. Nice.
And make sure to get a grenadine tie, too, because God forbid any part of you doesn't look 100% "dressed by the Internet".
A question here: what is the fascination with four in hand tie knots? Tailoring is done within a millimeter, belts not being fitted to belt loops is chastised, breaks on shoes is hypercritical, etc., etc. but a crooked four in hand with the narrow blade showing a little seems to be "the look". That low precision knot makes all the other fussing with details seem to be for nothing.
I always thought of 4IH to be the knot of choice for teens bagging groceries. Taught to them by their dad who is forced to wear suit n tie and ties the most expeditious low effort knot possible.
