    Much appreciated [​IMG] You're looking sharp as usual, and I like your bowtie a lot. I'm starting to really love wool neckwear, shame I don't have much of it...

    And though my opinion probably doesn't count much, I really like everything in Foo's pic, both the outfit itself and photography. I usually don't like small knots with spread collars but this one looks good, perhaps because of the collar's softness. And the jacket is just plain awesome.

    Foo looks fine. Perhaps the details aren't to everyone's tastes, but the overall look is positive.

    Perhaps the presence or the lack visual harmony applies to more distinguishable scenarios (like a suit that screams for a tie, but is worn casually). To babble about visual harmony with regard to a photo of someone's shirt collar and tie knot shapes seems ridiculous. Furthermore, in my opinion, there is a lot of room for preference in such a matter, especially given Mamoofan's experience and enthusiasm for the area. I found that many "visual artists" are the ones who think they dress well but actually dress like shit, as noticed by someone with hands-on experience.

    Hi there, n00b with only 29 posts here.

    I'm not prepared to created a mathematical proof as to why, but for whatever reason, I like this better:

    The knot in the image is scaled up 50%.

    Just my opinion. Respect to Foo.

    That sounds good on paper, but I'm afraid that in the opinion of most men, we have all shown a great capacity to lose Alpha points just by posting here.

    A close up of yesterdays fit with a couple from today, unfortunately not of the same photo quality as yesterday:

    I don't much care for Ant Honey's manner, but I think he's right about Foo's tie-knot. I love the collar and indeed everything else about Foo's look, however.
