    The pen0r was initially a consequence of convenience. I liked 4IH and I liked the end of the tie to hit my belt. But it's grown on me, and now I like it for it. I'd never start ordering my Hober's longer for that purpose, nor do I tie my ties to achieve that effect, but when it happens, which is more often than not, I find I am happier with it than I would have been without it.

    Thank you for the compliments. I layer because the temperature in my school and classroom is always in a state of flux. In any given hour it can go from 60 degrees to 90 degrees. I end up putting on and taking off layers through the day. I was aware of the loudness of the shirt, tie, and pants so I wanted to wear something to silence the loudness a bit, thus the solid jacket and vest. I didn't consider the texture of the vest so much as the color.

    I have been trying to limit the number of patterns I wear in an outfit. My outfit from Tuesday and Thursday have one and two patterns respectively. I don't think I'm ready to do it everyday though. Note that my outfits from Monday, Wednesday, and Friday got more thumbs than the Tuesday and Thursday outfits. I guess I'm not doing it right.

    Yes, I think so, too.
    And here, navy tie + navy jacket is just too close together. In fact, switch ites in the two outfits and you're golden; both times, the tie helps to connect top and bottom.

    Most of my ties end up like @Claghorn where the back blade is longer than the front. Maybe I'm just a noob when it comes to tying a tie. Carry on

    90% of the time the back is shorter than the front for me. After a while you just get the hang of it, and you develop an eye for how long you should tie your tie. On those 10% days when the back is longer the the front I usually retie it, but once in a while I can't be bothered and call it sprezz. However, if the back is consistently longer than the front you should either learn how to tie a tie or buy shorter ties.
