    I like the idea, but feel the white shirt is too much of an empty expanse here. A subtly patterned shirt would be nice, I think. Then again, I will always choose an extra pattern if I possibly can. :)

    Thanks Holdfast, the shirt is a pale grey end-on-end, but your point stands and I agree with you, there is too much plain shirt for a bow!
    Note's have been made for the next time its cool enough for this suit.

    Funnily enough, I was about to suggest a grey shirt instead without realising that it was already a pale grey. It's a good colour choice for the look, but perhaps in an ideal world, it could be a couple of shades darker to fill out the space a bit. It's still a nice look, of course.

    In case anyone was curious, there's a brand-spanking-new Nordstrom opening here in Nashville on September 16, and I am working there selling ties and such. :) These photos are not morning-fresh, but anyway...

    Mr Upr :
    "I will resist the urge to say that today's socks are made of Soylent Green, and simply state that they are a cotton/nylon blend, bought on sale from Brooks Bros. a season or two ago."

    It definitely is. It's Drake's for RLPL and is a nice tie. It got a ton of compliments, although I suspect it won't get much WAYWRN love.

    I really need to work on my four-in-hand. Those who have followed my sartorial journey may remember that my dad taught me the half-Windsor, which I always thought was a four-in-hand, my dad being a real average Joe type dude. So my half-Windsor is good, my four-in-hand not. Luckily I will get a LOT of chance to practice. I want mine to look like Spoo's.

    Thanks man. I wanted a casual vibe with the top - the slubby tie and denim linen called for relaxed. I see what you are saying though.


    Y'all swingers and your joaks.


    Thanks - 1.25"


    He should be back to work (and posting fits) in the next few weeks..... :devil:


    Congrats on the new job! I should post a step by step on the FIH. Deets on your shoes and your employee discount? :D

    Hi Bleachboy,

    I love the tie. Then again I'm sorta known for my love of loud ties - so I guess my opinion may not be in your favor .:fistbump:

    Thanks for the advice about buttoning- someone mentioned something about angles, so I did what any normal man would do and immediately went to the company restroom to take photos of myself in the mirror.

    noticed my collar was floating and fixed it between pictures :p
