    Made with my own blood sweat and tears. :D I mostly made them for work, since I have tattoo's that go down to my wrists. They cover them for the most part when my sleeves come up moving my arms. Alas, I am just a poor bartender, so no EG's for me. They're some old Polo's I got off the bay. The soles are Dainite, so I have never really knew the maker, but they weigh a ton and have a good solid construction.

    Love the suit, I'm only wondering do you consider a peak lapel 2 button to be business appropriate?

    Yes, I know the shoes were wrong on the pinstripe one. :)

    Why you think the shoes don't work? Do you not wear cutaway/spread collars (not sure of the correct name of it).

    That color was too light for the suit, it needed something darker. Black even. I wore a cutaway collar today. Go back a few pages.

    I think the Tom Ford shoulder is too assertive and will look dated soon. Although I like the fabrics selections very much I think you look best in a more natural shoulder.

    I have pretty broad shoulders naturally, so this sharp shoulder is not too much of a stretch for me. Although, lately I have been appreciating a completely natural shoulder. Probably because I have broad shoulders. :laugh:


    6'1, 165 buddy. :)

    I imagine it mostly has to do with the material. A good tie will give a good knot. It looks like the last picture is a double FIH, guessing the tie was a bit thinner, maybe unlined.

    The last one was a Marinella, fully lined. But those ties consistently give good knot.
