Thanks, in stitches. Glad you liked it!
I thought 'Stitchy'll probably like this' when I was putting this together this morn. How weird is that?
Yes, tie is a knit. I've also got the same tie in navy. On reflection it does look a bit busy. Might try something similar with a solid tie later on in the week
Spread > BD most of the time I agree, but for a bit of variety I think a BD is a groovy option IMO, especially with a more casual look where the shape of the jacket lapels and the tie allow it.. Agnelli loved them anywhere, anytime.
I don't follow the no tie with BD tho Musquy.
But Agnelli basically wore them as if they were not BD shirts, Pliny.
And that's (part of) why it looks right on him. IMO, that is.
FRIDAY CHALLENGE 29th AUGUST: THE 'ALL BLUES' CHALLENGE
I wear BD:s most of the time. If I had to choose one type of shirt to wear all the time it would be an OCBD, but spread looks better with the more uniform looks + more formal stuff (of course).
Funny, I realise their formality but I can now only wear them without a tie, which is as informal an application as you can get.
I find a cutaway gives a sharper look to an open neck shirt than points or spreads. Button downs I prefer without ties and are the only collars which take a sweater properly IMO.
Thanks; I agree on the lighter blue shirt, but I don't like white shirts with brown ties.
The shirt is a (semi-succesful) luxire, the suit is from Sartoria De Togni, Verona.
Been away for a couple of weeks' skiing. First at Thredbo, then over the pond to NZ where I kopped a day each at Coronet Peak, Cardrona and finally my fave, Treble Cone. The latter has over 700m of vertical drop and plenty of double-diamond chutes, which is, y'know, kinda my thang. Thredbo on the other hand has nearly as much vertical drop, but features less of the steeps and more of the big sweeping GS-style runs. I suppose you could say that Treble Cone is to Whistler as Thredbo is to Blackcomb. Now all they need is a whopping great gondola strung between the two.
Back to work today though. [sigh]

Today's tie is Charvet, which requires a very neutral background - between suit and shirt, I think that I have achieved neutrality.

Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
Posting a more casual fit as I genuinely want opinions on it.
M&S jacket (from a suit - I will be getting a blazing soon though)

Cox - one of your best there IMO.
