    The dimple and it sticks out a bit. But the tie it self is very nice.

    Perhaps you could shave off the top hairs so's we'd get a better idea? Oh and maybe if you showed us your belt buckle for comparison purposes. :happy:

    It's supposed to have a dimple, and stick out. He is wearing his collar pin specifically to make it 'stick out'.

    I reckon this is how you learn though.

    Clapeyron, I agree. It doesn't flow very well with the rest of the outfit. I should have just worn my barrel cuff white shirt. Thanks for pointing it out. I tried this SC on with honey brown/rust colored pants this weekend and it looked excellent. Problem is all my brown/tan dress trousers are winter weight! Will try to find something in a summer fabric in that color spectrum as it brought out the best in the coat.

    Speaking of incongruence, and the pot calling the kettle black, ABirdinHand, I like that blazer in theory in a different context (jeans, some bright colored chinos) but I am not sure it works with the conservative repp tie and the spread collar shirt. The most formal I think one can wear a blazer like that is with an OCBD and some dark denim or the aforementioned chinos. It isn't a terrible decision, just a disjointed one such as the gaffe i made today!

    I'm not sure those are the best two threads to point someone in direction to.

    My 2 cents...wear this same suit and tie but replace the gingham with a white shirt. You want to look smart and put together, not boy band-ish as another person pointed out, especially if your girl is wearing another dress like this. If that is her dress then gingham is way too casual.
