    Lol that's funny. I've never worn an Ascot before so I probably haven't got it quite right [​IMG]

    This is my first bespoke suit also so that was an interesting process. It's possibly my last as it took me a long time to save for this one. It's something that I've always wanted to do.

    Your shirt needs a bit more body to pull off the 'scot. It just won't do to have a floppy shirt front. :teach:

    Very nice tie, amazing color! This may be a stupid question to ask to the guy selling them, but how are your ties compared to, let's say, Drakes, seen as they're in the same price range? Also, is that tie untipped and unlined or just untipped?

    I think we're a little less expensive than Drake's. And yeah, it is a hard question to answer... there are a few people here who own Shibumi ties, maybe they would like to comment?
    All our Grenadines are 3-fold, untipped, with hand-rolled edges.

    I thought that the ps being a red/white/black plaid wasn't particularly "matchy" with a solid red tie...:bigstar: But I could be wrong. Anyway, really hate this suit and will probably donate it.

    @chocsosa: very nice fit, the suit seems to fit really well. It's kind of hard to make out the colors in this light though. Suit is charcoal, shirt white and tie has a navy base? Also, simple would have called for quieter socks, no?

    Very subtle light blue micro stripes which you can probably see if you enlarge the picture. Its hard to get the micro stripes to stand out on my Iphone. The best I could do. The socks were my attempt at being playful with a very conservative look. Most people don't get to see my socks but me usually being that its under a desk all day. However that is not always the case though. Sometimes I would wear dark gray sock's as well..Just decided to go against the grain a little last week.

    Would pay for Stitches/Choc meet up pics.

    But you have to do the DeVito/Schwarzenegger Twins movie poster.
