    Yup, the "purple" one but when I tried the same as yours I felt it was to short and didn't buy it. Strangely enough, when I measured that one (the same as yours) it was 30" from the BOC and the one I bought is 31" [​IMG]

    Everything here is up to your usual high standards, but I'm not a fan of the pocket shirt with braces.

    That's a great way of making a navy suit more casual. How wide is that tie? I've been looking for a knit tie that's at least 3.25".

    Cifonelli bespoke, but alas not for me. Still one of my most well-fitting suits - only had to drop the cuffs to lengthen the trousers, no other alterations needed....

    I must agree with you, but, in my haste last night laying out my clothes, I didn't realize that the shirt was not only pocketed, but also button cuff :embar: . Oops.

    I must admit, I almost bought a few of the Eidos ties, but didn't pull the trigger on account of the width. It looks great on you, but at 5'8" and skinny as a rail, they looked like bibs on me.

    It happens to the best of us. This is one of those nitpicks that you'll only see on SF.

    Our ties are 8cm which is roughly the same width as our jacket lapel. If you are wearing that lapel comfortably your tie should be in proportion to it!

    I agree in the cuffs, but it was no cuffs or no suit, so it was an easy choice :nodding:

    That would certainly seem to make sense, but I guess I find the best balance of tie-to-lapel ratio not measured by the widest margins, but rather somewhere in the middle (after all, the lapel of a jacket is a dynamic shape, expanding from narrow at bottom to wide at top, encompassing a range of widths. Things look out of balance [to my eye anyway] when the tie is less or greater than the width of the lapels midpoint).

    The tie below is just about the width of the lapels midpoint, yes? Does this look out of balance (not being rhetorical here...really want to know)?

    Perhaps this gets back to my size, though. I'm short and skinny. So, I like wide lapels because they expand my frame, but I dislike overly wide ties, as they seem to shorten me.

    Anyway, the Eidos knit ties are beautiful, just slightly too wide for me. Though perhaps I'll take another look and see about the balance issue!

    Great, bold tie for this look.



    After seeing someone (IIRC Sander) pull off an item I generally dislike - contrast-edged white linen square - I decided to dig my only such square out from the very bottom of the drawer to give it a go again. Very casual fit today, inc. the dreaded polo-under-jacket look. [​IMG]
