    I do really love that tie. [​IMG]

    Thanks! As Caustic Man and Sander already mentioned, you should definitely go for it. Grey glen check is such a versatile suit.

    Today marks my two year SF anniversary. Almost everyday for the past two years, I've posted what I've worn either here or over on MC Casual. I received a great deal of advice and learned a great deal in that time. I sincerely want to thank all of you for your kind words, advice, and excellent examples. Thanks for an amazing two years, guys. In honor of the anniversary, I've attempted to dress in CBD to the best of my ability (all solids at least). The suit is casual by nature, so it is inherently impossible to really do CBD in it. The pocket square and watch are my two AAS indulgences. Anyway, I hope you like it. I'd still like to be a part of SF, but I'm going to start scaling back my everyday outfit posts. The school year is winding down so things are starting to get crazy and I need to get ahead of it. I'll be lurking at the very least so you haven't seen the last of me. Thanks again, gentleman, and best of luck to you all if our paths don't cross on other parts of the forum.

    There was some talk about tie knots yesterday and the one I used here is pretty interesting. It's a half windsor/double four in hand which I've nicknamed the four handed windsor. It's pretty much a half windsor, but then you wrap around twice like a double four in hand at the end. It's petty asymmetric, but I don't mind. I wear it with my longer ties to avoid tie penis.

    The chicken scratch above the inside pocket is my signature. The pocket directly below that is a pen pocket. It's pretty much the best thing ever as a teacher.

    I doubt it. I haven't worn a suit in a good long while.

    An Acute Style,

    Your color combinations are one of the reasons I glance at this thread. Two years of show and tell as often as you have certainty can bring burnout. Everything comes to an end as sometime we need to move on or a good break. Your show and tell was nice.
