    lol you fat liar. they came laced that way and you have not bothered to mess with them. but as you know, lacing type can significantly affect shoe fit comfort.

    ;)


    you may spout your opinion as often as you like. its not against the rules. but when you are an unestablished member, and waltz in harshing on people who are established, with little to no credence, and you pose your thoughts at absolute facts, dont expect to get a lot of serious replies. #jusayin.

    It doesn't matter if he is established or not stitchy. he can give his opinion. And if I find it helpful I'll take it. If not, I'll carry on... [​IMG]

    lol, indeed, it does not exactly matter. and im sure youd take good advise wherever it came from. just as a general rule, i find that new poster + speaking in absolute terms, is a hard combo to pull off. that is all. no offense was intended, just a thought.

    Double Windsor on a Cashmere Borelli Tie. Too tight and and I´ll ruin the Tie, but I like a bigger Knot with a cutaway collar

    The rise of the pants seems too long to be worn that low. I have nothing against pants worn low, but rise should be coherent; it shouldn't peek below the jacket hem.

    Wool ties are more bulky, have you tried a double four in hand? It might fill the collar space well and will look much better [​IMG]

    I´ve tried it before and you are correct it does look better. Due to the material however it takes a bit more time to shape the knot correctly and I just didn´t have time this moring
    so I just used the Windsor(Which is my usual knot for ties of that shape) and ran out the door as 6 this morning. I know, I know, being late is no excuse for sartorial slobbishness :embar:

    It's raining in NYC, so suit-wearing is out. I've been wearing this combo of SC and trousers for a while - it's due a visit to the dry cleaner's soon, but perhaps it's presentable enough for this thread. Please note the SF-approved touches of robo-pose, and the use of a solid brown tie.

    Tie - JAB

    Shoes - Finsbury, Paris
    Raincoat - Burberry
    Scarf - Johnstons of Elgin
    Hat - Weatherproof

    Very interesting, and you pulled off the feat of four patterns.

    I generally do too, but a knot should fit within the collar, not look like it is bursting at the seams.

    Yeah, even with the spread collar, I agree this does not look great. A double FIH would have worked much better IMO. This knot is just huge.

    Is it just me? I like Windsor knots, but I don't think they really look good with knit or wool ties.
