    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 attachés" is impossible. However, I've begun collecting vintage brief cases and attachés.

    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)
