    These cardi's are great! Very stylish. Also, I am enjoying the shoes in the 2nd picture.

    To be clear, neither of these exhibits are of me: P.Bateman and NOBD are the cardi-rockers.

    The tweed and corduroy make for a perfect combination. The shirt color and pattern is interesting--especially when played against that bright, richly colored tie. You look very comfortable and natty.

    Thanks!
    About the cardigans: I like 'em. The perfect in-between-thing for autumn. You don't want to wear a sweater, but it's chilly without? Just take your cardigan! :)
    The tie was my grandfathers favourite. According to the label, it's a "signé incognito" 100% silk tie from italy. Besides the emotional value, i just love the color and how they still shine after all the years.

    An actual fit pic. Sorry the shoes didn't make it into the shot. I can save some the effort of commenting on the voluminous pants. Yep, they're a generous cut and sit right at my belly button. I like 'em that way. This is where o/o and I overlap. In fact, I could easily imagine his wearing something very similar.

    You are too kind. :embar:

    Suit is about 7 years old; a MTM Hickey Freeman that, unfortunately, is now too big on me. Shirt, Ledbury. Tie, Bruer. PS is very ancient. I don't remember who made it.

    Guys, is today ugly tie day or something? Has Holdfast dragged you to the Slitherine side?
    Besides clarinetplayer all outfits suffer from ties which do not live up to the level of awesome of the rest of the items.

    Your tie is nice, a contender for awesome. Clarinet's was almost awesome but outdone by the awesomeness of his suit. ElDuderino's tie was out-awesoming the rest of his kit, and certainly a borderline contender for awesomeness. But more awesome, and incontrovertible contenders for purely tie-based awesome, are clearly in demand.

    I'm not sure there were many "ugly" ties out there. Even Holdfast's tie isn't really inherently ugly, just unfortunately juxtaposed perhaps. Well OK, it was a bit ugly. But not ugly ugly.

    Then again, I have some shark skin saddles, on dull AE lasts, with green laces. Me and ugly have a weird romance sometimes.

    Do carry on. Sorry.

    We are at the Sextyle Forvms, right?
    Calling something ugly from a regular member over here is like complaining one does only own a Mercedes SLS AMG instead of the most recent Ferrari.

    How is a knit tie not fundamentally awesome?
