    Thanks for your input. Much appreciated.
    According to Ed, it's actually a pure wool, 280-300gms, made for Kiton, fabric.

    Not sure the square jibes with the rest of this (outstanding) fit
    @An Acute Style .. There are cool paisley ties, there are fugly paisley ties... and then there's this one. [​IMG]



    @ThunderMarch noice. Light to mid-weight for jacketing then. FWIW I'd wear it with a light-weight light grey flannels.

    Go patch pockets + 3 roll 2 and nobody'll mistake for a suit jacket!

    Thanks for the 'thumbs' for my debut outfit.

    A bit colder today in the UK with the threat of rain so suede shoes are out of the question. As it's Friday, a more whimsical tie suits. Kept it simple with the white line PS once again.

    Again sorry for the really terrible photos, I'll have to work out a better lighting scheme (and I promise the trousers aren't as creased as the photos make out!)

    The alcohol concentration in this warehouse was so high that my eyes were watering and we had to wipe the camera after every shot! This is how hard life gets when you drink for living :)

    It is good to wear something other than shorts, polo shirts, and camp moccasins without socks - practical for an active construction site (as my new apartment has been for the last three days, and I babysitting, awaiting furniture deliveries), but not very interesting, sartorially.

    Sports jacket - Paul Stuart/Phineas Cole
    Shirt & trousers - BB
    Tie - Michelson's via Thomas Farthing, London
    Shoes - Carmina, via the Armoury, NYC

    YES !!! Blackwatch jacket, that's awesome.

    @upr_crust Love the violet jacket, great combo. You're always dapper, but I've already said it.

    Today, horizontal stripes

    None taken, but no. I like the tip of my tie to touch the top of my belt. Wearing it longer is in vogue at the moment, but not my go to.

    Nothing wrong with tie length.

    Getting one's tie to end at the top of one's belt, as well as not getting the rear blade longer than the front blade and just hanging there looking silly, is a matter of skill. Some people have the skill and some don't have the skill.

    Those who lack the skill have made up a silly name, "Spazatura" (or something like that) to cover up their lack of skill.

    These unskilled souls are denied the simplest solution, wearing a bow tie, as bow ties require yet another set of even more complex skills.

    RTW ties are much too long, give me the blues to day. I don't feel like cutting them off, just have to live with the length for now.

    In loving memory of this little rescue mutt, that we got to have for six years, until sickness took her this week. Picture taken during our last walk in the woods :(
