    Joshua,

    I would encourage you to avoid folding that square like that for as long as you live. I also feel that it doesn't contrast well with your tie, but I suppose that's just my opinion.

    Speaking of, knotting that nice tie underneath that short, awkward looking button-down collar perhaps wasn't the best decision either -- then again, it may just be the angle of the shot and it might look better from the front. I don't know.

    One more thing about the tie itself: without a dimple, it looks a little bit lifeless. Adding one next time you tie your tie will give it extra body and shit.

    Otherwise, cool pants, cool jacket, cool socks, cool shoes.

    North Island or South Island?

    My weekend fits are usually way too casual for this thread, but today I went shopping so I dressed up a bit. Sorry for the ultra-awful quality but the Samsung Galaxy I normally use is my work phone, and I don't have it on weekends.

    I thought so too at first glance but the reflection on the left foot washes out part of the toe making it look pointed as opposed to the chisel toe of the right.

    Probably not going to get much love for wearing a tie with jeans, but I figured it wouldn't be too egregious a violation if the jeans were dark enough. And it's a weekend walk in a park.

    Not sure which offense is more heinous -- the pairing of jeans with tie or the wearing of tie without jacket. You're cruisin' for a bruisin', mister. :)

    On a more serious note, please provide details on shirt and tie. I really like both.

    Claghorn: You're young enough that you can probably get away with the jacket-less tie/jeans thing, but I would recommend a button-down shirt in an oxford cloth and a more casual tie like a knit. The shoes, though, I cannot abide.

    Lol, no. It looks like it in the picture, though [​IMG]
    They are some cheap-ass pointed toe shoes I use as poor weather beaters (it was raining)

    I...I just really love ties. And dislike sweating. But I love ties. I have maybe 6 suits, another 6 jackets, and a little over 50 ties. So no jacket with a tie might make a few appearances

    The shirt is from a tailor in Seoul...I just sort of order en mass from him a few times a year (will sell you a shitty shirt at $30 a pop or fairly solid stuff at $50. The nicer stuff causes the prices to creep up a bit) And I can be less helpful with the tie...which was a gift from a friend (also a tailor) and has no label. Very heavy and soft. No idea who made it. I'll ask him next time I see him. I'm sorry I didn't have a cool answer

    So the no jacket thing...more than just to keep people from looking like they sell cellphones? I'd like to become a regular poster here without losing too much identity. Ties with cardigans alright? What about jacket, shirt, no tie?

    My fiance and I were going to walk around taking pictures of each other, so I put on the tie.

    but actually you hit the nail right on the head, Mr.Sheep...
    I really...really...really...like ties. And have OCD . So....

    Banana Republic iiiii
    Brooks Broothers iiiiiiii
    Canali i
    Dunhill i
    Fendi i
    Ferragamo ii
    Kiton i
    Hugo Boss iiiii
    Tom Ford i
    Thomas Pink iiiiiiiiiiiii
    Turnbull & Asser ii
    Mystery????? ii

    And when it gets cooler, there will be a jacket...and also a beannie. Also, thanks to this forum I've discovered wool and linen threads. Something new to collect.

    Dear Mr Butch. Fuck yes. I bought them just the other day. I liked the way they looked against the jeans I was wearing at the time. As I was paying, I thought of you (as a collective). Didn't think they would fly so well for some. I am honored that my shoes garnered their first hate from such an illustrious persona.
