    OK "troll" is harsh.

    Generally speaking, I'm interested in the opinions of people with a track record. @JapanAlex01 you've been on this board for a lot longer than me and perhaps you do have that track record.

    If not, then you're just another anonymous person with an opinion. Why would we care what you think?

    It's an honest question.

    I have never asked anyone to care about what I think; you either see what I'm saying, or you don't. After time, if you tend to agree with what I say or not, you'll form an opinion about me--just like any other human being. I don't like the friendly forum status, that builds up in this forum in particular, as people pass otherwise bad fits, because that person is a regular. Case in point: If NewYorkIslander wasn't a regular, he wouldn't have gotten so many likes for that godawful tie.

    I never troll this forum (unless it's some of the threads filled with right-wing rednecks [a surprising amount]). I am as interested in this as anyone else in this forum. A great deal of thought goes into everything I say and do in life--let alone in one forum of the internet.

    He's right about that PS though, and that tie isn't the nicest combination I've seen either. A tie like that can work with a cream or beige summer suit and a white shirt, but not with this darker shirt and winter fit.

    This was actually taken 100m from where the silk for tie and pocket square was printed: back to the roots!

    How the fuck do you always find suit jackets that fit you so perfectly?! Do you go bespoke everything? (Now that's a beautiful tie/PS combo!)

    Thanks! Haha, no. In this case, spending as much on alterations (by a very good, expensive alterations tailor) as for the suit did the trick. :embar: In reality, my physique is quite hunchback-ish.

    Sir, what is going on here? Is this a particular style? There is a space between 2 button pairs.

    That is a feature of all suits from New & Lingwood, and, for some peculiar reason, N & L makes all its suits with working button holes. Dunno why . . .

    Thanks for the response. It is quite interesting that they would space out the buttons like that. Maybe it's a trade mark or something.

    Keep on looking good, sir. [​IMG]

    Nah - my train wrecks are not interesting enough to merit their own thread . . . . :satisfied:
