    Looks very nice and unique. How well do the VM ties knot?

    Depends a little on the fabric and construction, but generally very well. In my view, VM has developed from being a good but overpriced maker to now consistently producing top quality. I have 15-20 of their ties and if I compare the first ones I bought to what they make today, they have come a long way.

    That was a very strange dream indeed. I have not driven a car since 1989.

    The trip is winding down fast, and our rendezvous with Bernoulli ended yesterday evening when he took off for the airport and parts eastward. We can attest to his vast knowledge of Rome and its delights, and his presence in Rome during part of our stay greatly enhanced our enjoyment of the city.

    So far, very little swag from the trip, only a pair of cameo cufflinks from a shop in Naples near the Certosa di San Martino. As for fine tailoring in Naples, there was very little evidence of the locals partaking in this - fashion on the street was scruffy to say the least. Rome has been better, but not the elegant eyeful that I remember from years past.

    Informal meeting with colleagues. I am in doubt about this belt. It looks even more wrong when sweater is buttoned over it.

    Looks decent. I would shorten the pants. They're pooling. I'd also recommend a slightly wider leg opening. You have large feet and the narrow opening draws attention to them. I'd recommend a wider tie to match the spread of the collar. Lastly, there's no need for a tie if the event is informal. I think a tie calls for a jacket. A navy cotton would do well here.

    Unlike @upr_crust , I did pick up a few things on my quick trip to the Eternal City. My first, but not last, wool tie.
    As always, a great pleasure to partake in the company of Señor Crust. I never met anybody with such a timeless combination of intelligence, elegance and culture.

    Something different today, definitely not classic menswear. I was inspired by the SWD assymetric fit challenge:

    Formosa suit
    Wedding tie
    Black captoe oxfords
    Document robe coat

    Totally off topic, but, as I am spending today the prisoner of airports and airplanes, I will beg indulgence.

    In my trip to Naples and Rome I noted one great mystery - where are the toilet seats? None of the men's rooms in any public institution in either city had toilet seats (though the Musei Vaticani had one, but the Vatican isn't a public institution per se). Why would this be?

    Encountered this in Tuscany last autumn and I have no idea.
    The necessary hovering does give the legs a good workout though ...
