    Thanks for the thumbs yesterday. I tried to do all solids again today, but ended up with two patterns (pocket square and watch strap). I wanted to, but didn't wear my purple lapel flower today. It looks like you guys didn't mind it that much yesterday. I guess I look a bit like a blueberry today.

    GMM, every tie knot I have ever tied has been a half windsor. On topic, the tie width does not bother me much.

    And up until not too long ago Claghorn used the half Windsor with some frequency, too, if I recall correctly

    With two of the best-dressed men on SF wearing that knot, perhaps we might finally put to rest the myth that it's ipso facto inappropriate.

    Cheers,

    A tad hyperbolic on my part, perhaps. For 'inappropriate' substitute 'frowned-upon on SF', perhaps?

    One of my favorite things about your MC fits is that they are so obviously the product of careful, deliberate composition i.e. the anti-sprezzatura. Sprezz is a great look/aesthetic for lots of guys, but it's nice to see well executed alternatives, too.

    Sorry the pictures are washed out! I'll fix that for future posts.

    in the meantime:
    - the suit has a light blue windowpane in it
    - the shirt is light blue with green and white stripes
    - the tie is chocolate brown with blue dots
    - square is white linen

    Then why did I get such a rash of shit for mine when I first showed up, hmmmm? Not the only such double standard I've encountered, I have to say....

    because you post more close-ups? Stitchy's pics tend to be more middle ground.

    +1 to HW. I use FIH more often, but will still wear HW regularly. Really depends on the tie. I have some which simply look better with a HW. I also tend to use HW more with wider lapels. And longer ties (such as older Henry Carter) where the tie "pen0r" would be too much even for me.

    The length of the back of the jacket seems quite reasonable, but I think the bottom hems of the sides of the jacket appearing to be lower than the rear vent flap looks very wrong to me. It's not for me to recommend what you do with the jacket, but if I were to want to keep it, I'd have to get that corrected, if it can be corrected.

    Like the tie! The jacket fit is good, though it looks like you may be able to swing a bit more length in the future. iPhone pics have a way of throwing proportions off so it's hard to tell. Shirt doesn't belong in this fit; would go solid light blue or pale pink since you've got a patterned tie and suit. And if you're going to do a plain white linen square I don't think a puff really works. It's kinda TV fold or maybe a few peaks or nothing. Lastly, pants are hemmed a bit too short it would seem from the first pic - looks like they're floating. If there's fabric left maybe consider getting them let out a bit?
