    Knit ties with suits have been frowned upon more than one time here. Personally I have no problem with it, obviously...



    I wouldn't say very slim. Slimmer that the SF optimum, that is true but OTOH far better than on most OTR suits - or at least what has been on most OTR suits the last years. It seems to slowly be changing however...

    I guess your stature just makes them look slim. Anyway, I like the suit/tie combo.

    Not sounding pretentious when you say "I've begun collecting vintage brief cases and attach├ęs" is impossible. However, I've begun collecting vintage brief cases and attach├ęs.

    The perfect lapel width: Use the golden ratio--the smaller number on notch lapels, the larger number on double-breasted.

    Brown shoes (or walnut) would be much better, as previously mentioned, and the turtleneck needs a chunkier, looser collar. I would not tuck it in so much as ditch it in favor of one with a more visually interesting collar.

    I think for a single breasted jacket ideally the lapel should extend to halfway between where the lapel starts and your shoulder.

    I think there's just too many variables to be able to have a simple rule of thumb: gorge height, gorge angle, shoulder expression, size of wearers head, preferred shirt collar etc.

    perhaps the angle of the photos plays a part in this as well (shoes size 6.5)
