    An alternative explanation is that it's a convenient place to put your glasses when they're not on your face...


    Do not listen to this, Ian. :D The cuffs are good.

    English trimmings co...I forget the name, but I'm sure one of the pro's here might know the name of the company. They're a matte silver/gunmetal

    I gotta ask because I feel like an idiot and it's driving me nuts..


    How the hell do guys get their knot like that? Is it a particular knot or merely a function of the material?

    Kappelan's pic you quoted shows a double 4-in-hand with the big end of the tie going under both loops.

    Yeah I get that, I am very sensitive to sunlight ("I have special eyes"!!) so never leave the house without sunglasses. When not on my face they go in my breast pocket, behind my PS, but I don't see the need to hang and arm out ostentatiously like that!

    I so suck at tying a DFIH and that makes me sad.

    Awesome outfit Ian 3 patterns and a texture or 2. Subtle PS with enough colour difference to get one to notice it.

    Shirt collar snug, and tie cinched up tight projects a lot of power and commanding presence. Good fit.

    I must say I like the 2 inch cuffs as well, they seem somehow very masculine in conjunction with your stocky physique and stance.

    But... sunglasses in the top pocket, that's real loser poser trying too hard stuff, goodness put them in an inside jacket pocket or leave them on your car dashboard..

    Kapp you do a really good tie knot. I like how each round turn shows. Well fitting collar with tie cinched right up tight. I don't think it gets much better Sir.

    Four Textures and four colours are excellent as well.

    Not a fan of the jeans though. Get a better pair of trousers to compliment the top half.

    I had to emphasize on the perfection of this outfit Ian. I really like the 2in cuffs.

    More vintage from last night: Over coat from Rohdi Heintz 1980´s. Old Homburg Borsalino hat from 1950´s (?) + Tretorn bottiner/overshoes (1960´s?)

    [​IMG]

    A suit suit from Hjelm 1940´s. A anonymous tie from the 50´s and a Stenström shirt from 00. Crocket & Jones shoes. The glasses are probably from the same time as the building - Stockholm City Hall 1923. But I am not shure the wine is vintage.

    ^ Great tie/shoe choice for that outfit.

    Spoo - would have absolutely loved your recent fit it it had used a non-green square (or perhaps even w/out any square at all). The jacket/tie/shirt/cardigan combo was wonderful fun.
    sugarbutch - I'm in your camp of habitually leaving my gloves in the overcoat top pocket. And I was doing way before it became a sprezzy thing online, so whether it's now viewed as affected or not, it isn't going to change. Having said that, I do think you could stand to stuff them down a bit deeper in to the pocket, purely for practical reasons of them not accidentally falling out.
    Albert Hal - the overcoat is cool, and with the strong shoulder on the suit underneath, gives the whole look a very stylised feel.
