    We all put on our blue OCBDs and toasted my dad's 57th birthday

    I wouldn't wear it either but Koreans on the other hand like all things cute and somehow can pull it off much better than us.

    @Kai: I love all your looks, really (I liked that funky tie a while back that was getting some knots), but this one is a bit monochrome for me.

    When I wear a tie with jeans (rarely, but I definitely do), I like using a cardigan to offset the whole "tie with jeans" thing.

    Props to any man who makes/modifies his own clothes.

    Oddly, Korea is a country where knock off brands sometimes are more expensive than the real thing (Teenie Weenie, ridiculous name and all, is about the same price as PRL if not more expensive). And I agree with with Vovan that Koreans pull off "cute" better than us white folk. In the States or Europe, that tie would definitely not be MC-ok. In Korea, it's a bit more acceptable among style conscious, professional Koreans. I'd never wear it, but I wouldn't call it hideous from a purely aesthetic standpoint. The choice to put any sort of animal, especially that large, onto a tie is a poor one, but it is poor not necessarily because it looks awful in and of itself, but because it is transforming a piece of clothing into a novelty.

    +1. Amazing coat, Cant.

    Thank you, it is Vyella. I really like the brand for this type of shirt. The ones with wool in the fabric are fantastic for chilly days. Seeing it in the picture reminds me it needs a visit to the tailor. Usually I am wearing a vest or jacket.

    For those confused I should have been better on my post. I was going to a Halloween party as a British shooter. Very lazy of me, just opened the closet but hey, I was comfortable which is more than I can say for my pal in the Captain America get up.
