    Collar stays are overrated and I wouldn't even had noticed the lack of a ps if you hadn't mentioned it.

    I'm assuming you would be trying them on, not buying online, correct?

    I think something is missing here. Asides from the cuff pooling/stacking, it seems you are thrusting your upper body forward. Not sure if you have a very erect stance during these pictures, or the suit is off balance.

    So, if I start wearing longwings, can I get a sleek shoe donation, too?


    I'd watch it.


    What's the URL?

    It'll be an ill-fitting shoe that will likely crease oddly and won't break on your foot properly.

    I liked the color of this tie enough to take fit pics. Trousers are a dark charcoal herringbone, not black.

    Rob - it may be your pics, but you seem to be having the falling backwards syndrome that has been discussed here the last few days.

    Also my first impression i got of your picture was to give you oblige to press your suit, give you a shave, tug your jacket downwards and forwards, hem your pants and change your shoes. Sorry bra.

    no clue why it always comes so damn thick....its a single four in hand....pulled the knot as tight as i can....still comes out this thick
    again, i know. love the tie, but with the thick knot, i can only wear it with the cutaway collar shirt.

    not sure how to take it, so Im taking it as a complement that you dont absolutely hate it :lol::lol:

    again, if anyone could give me some info on how the hell to make that knot smaller, id love some help. But to my knowledge nothing makes a smaller knot than a four in hand.


    ****click on the pic to make it bigger....I think since the collar is a cutaway the sides of the tie coming out of the knot makes it look so much bigger...little better detail in the larger pic.

    Damn, Derk - thats a goiter at your neck! Over, around and through - try that, should reduce the swelling a bit. Also, the pants - are they about 7-7.25" at the cuff? Is the rise about 10 - 11"? I think you would benefit more from a slightly higher rise and a wider opening at the cuff. You have virtually the same body as I do, so Im pretty sure you would be happy with trying something a little higher and fuller. Your torso (like mine) is extra long, and the lower rise pants make it look longer. You like sleek shoes (like me) and narrow pants are not my favorite with sleek shoes when the hem is on the long side. If you are going to keep these pants with these shoes, take em up 3/4" or so, and I think you would like the look better.

    Just my humble.

    The collar looks like it may be a little too high for you?

    That aside, it looks great without the stays IMHO...

    I enjoy your looks, especially your mix of street and MC but this doesn't do it for me. It seems to be mixed metaphors. Classic/semiformal 3 piece concept, with casual patch pockets, casual fabric weave and casual button color,paired with a formal/semiformal white contrasting collar shirt. It seems to want to be a hybrid but isn't casual or formal.

    Perhaps if you wore a solid blue or white BDOC shirt and a bit more casual knit tie (Black or navy would be a cool retro look) and a solid white linen pocket square with a puff and not a TV fold? I think that would make a huge difference and fit more the look of the suit yet.

    As far as the cut, it seems a bit long (camera angle perhaps??) and the pants seem rather long (maybe just need to be pulled up?). I would also go with darker horn buttons or wear brown shoes with these buttons and not oxblood.

    Sorry if this seems to be picky. But I honestly think that the overall look of this outfit could be so much better with a different perspective.

    dude. thats exactly how i tie....Its not as big as it looks...its thick, but the small pic makes it look like the part that goes around my neck is part of the knot....

    agreed on the pants as well. You raised some GREAT points on the fit....Im currently looking for some decent trousers that fit me exactly how i like. as of yet, I dont have any that im 100% sold on. frustrating.
