    Cross post from the Challenge: big new work contract signed in spectator shoes, argyll socks, a dandy bow tie and linen three piece. Because this is how far we go for Styleforum. OK, I probably would have done something like this anyway, just because I'm a dick me...

    I'd like to think they love me for me. And it's always good to make an impression on receptionists, secretaries, HR ladies, etc. This kind of shit they do not forget, and along with a smile and some language skills, it definitely helps. :)

    HF I like your roll neck fits but always think they could look a little bit sharper with a slightly tighter fitting neck. One that doesn't "roll" as much, if you get my meaning :)

    I'm with you on that, I do a similar thing, going out to clients. I often meet HR ladies too, but often professionals who are well dressed but mostly functionally well dressed. I like to be slightly different, or in some cases very different. Therefore, they remember me. Its up to me then to make sure they not only remember me for my clothes but also what I'm there to actually talk about!

    New Drake's tie. I had a hard time with this tie to be honest; matching the colour was challenging, so I just wore a white shirt and let the colour of the tie speak for itself.

    Notice anything different in the above shot, Rudals? :)

    I think the white linen square is a good choice in this context. I find browns work nicely with purple, so with a different suit (e.g. blue), you might try something in that range (e.g. something similar to SB and CD's sand/brown Drake's square).

    [​IMG] Yo. What width is that tie? Also, I honestly dont think that is the best tie colour.

    I would agree. Other than that it's a pretty nice fit. You really are learning something, good buddy.

    mimo - so cute.

    JLopez - Great start to 2014.

    the texture is indeed nice. id recommend wearing it with a navy jacket though, it think that would be a much more complimentary combination.

    FTR - i like purple ties. they just need to be worn selectively imo.

    Purple is not my first choice for color in ties, something a bit more dandyish about it, but try it with a brown sports coat if you have one, just to see how the colors go together.

    edit: or with navy, as stitches says. But brown might surprise you (a richer brown in this case).
