    Must be because I'm pulling it forward for the buttoning pose - the jacket has virtually no waist suppression. I enjoy the full trousers with slim SC look though - Astaire comes to mind. It might make one look bottom-heavy overall, but does a great job at disguising wide hips. I hate the "carrot look" I get with slimmer pants.

    Fair enough, I'd still taper them slightly below the knee though. It's a shame to hide your shoes under your trousers.

    You can't tell from the pic, but the trousers are chocolate brown corduroys, the shoes are mid-top Chuck Taylors, and the tie is a navy knit.

    That was not the first question that came to mind, as it happens.

    thanks. I'm experimenting with 3 different designs right now, I'll likely make a post about this soon since I actually try to settle on one height, length and spread angle for my Überhemd[​IMG].

    That would be awesome. I've been really struggling to nail down why certain collars look so much better than others, and have been experimenting with different heights myself.

    Not as bold as Sug, but this is one of the more exuberant ties I own.

    My intent was to wear a bold tie but not be gaudy about it - I could have pulled a Versace out and murdered it. But, I wanted to do something that was cohesive, which I think is much harder to accomplish than throwing on, oh, a pink cashmere attolini tie. :)

    I hope you didn't wind up in the doghouse at work again for over-dressing....but if you did, it was worth it!
