    Are you mad, sir? They're listening, you know!

    (I did consider it, but without saying whether I actually ventured in public in so scandalous a fashion -- not that I'd admit something like that here! -- there's certainly no way I'd dare post pictures of it 'round these parts lest I expose myself to excoriation.)

    Oh, and that picture IS of a fully SF-approved double FIH already.

    Again, if you disapprove of the width, take it up with NMWA/Calabrese. It doesn't bother me a lick. YMMV.

    (All in good fun, noods. Just kiddin around)

    Quit licking your ties. It's causing shrinkage. ;)

    Hi Victor, firstly I really enjoy your posts. I can imagine a lot of effort goes into making these fantastic shots. Today again great fit. Only concern how a rugged look goes with light coloured jeans. Or is it just to create the contrast? Please educate me [​IMG]

    Long time no see, TB! The jacket looks to be a hair long, but I think it might be exaggerated by the high-contrast pants. With a mid-gray lower half, I think it would be okay.

    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?

    Cheers,

    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
