    Nothing wrong with a bowtie and a suit. Also nothing wrong with not liking the combination.

    I wore a bowtie yesterday, and realized that I apparently subsconsciously fiddle with the blades of my tie throughout the day. I repeatedly found myself reaching for the blade of a tie which wasn't there.

    See now if that jacket were mine I would want less waist supression and slightly larger sleeves so you don't get all of those unsightly wrinkles. The pants are just down right too slim. I just see this look and think 20's something finance guy in new york. I think the sillhouette is boring and not elegant. Just my opinion. If you're happy that is what matters.

    Fits you well but black shoes would be better. Maybe even chukkas or chelsea boots. Dark brown suede would be nice, too.

    "I bet you get a lot of comments at work with this one."

    Mr. Butch - I got fewer comments on my attire at work today than I received here, but I credit that to the fact that my co-workers are more inured to my sartorial excesses than the readers of these fora.

    As for your observation above - yes, I have had the same thing happen to me. I can be quite flummoxed when attempting to use a urinal, and there is no four-in-hand necktie to throw over my shoulder :embar:.

    i concur. please do not take anything more from the chest Uuno ... it is good as is.

    the pants though need a ton of work - maybe a recut, but i dont even know if you have enough fabric to make it drape right. all the wrinkles you see from your thighs down are a good indicator that it doesnt fit right. the shoes definitely should be darker.

    i like the p/s (or what i can see of it) and the tie, but not a fan of that tie in the context of that fit ... maybe with a pale blue or even a pale green shirt but not white ... too harsh contrast.

    You are definitely making the right choice with a spread collar with your facial structure and build. Why not split the difference and try a Half Windsor? I think it would do you a world of good.

    I don't subscribe to the whole the collar should work with your face thing. I just think spread collars look better on everybody. Also, there is little reason anybody needs to tie a knot more complicated than a four-in-hand, imo. Anything more looks like you are broing it up at the junior prom.

    I agree on the shirt collar but not on the tie knot.
    Four in hand always looked like your dad, that was forced to wear a tie to work, showed you how to knot a tie so you could bag groceries at the better grocery store. Not the best grocery store mind you.

    With all due respect I don't think it's really an opinion. I think it has a lot to do with balance, scale and visual aesthetics. I think if this was presented to an art professor who cared nothing about fashion they would agree on principle and probably be able to explain it a hell of a lot better than I can. But at least to my eye, point collars look terrible on men with thicker necks and round face and spread collars look terrible on guys with thin necks and long faces.
