    I've done quite a lot of those in the past. I've become lazy - detail shots are much quicker to make.

    Perhaps, the cloth is from Abraham Moon. I picked up the jacket last Xmas at 50% discount :)

    Thanks awfully, but wondering, are you talking about cutting up the trousers to make into pocket squares or are you talking about the entire image, which I think is my best Simon Templar impersonation so far (although the halo isn't in quite the right place)?

    Thicker wool lining as opposed to lighter linen makes a superior knot, that's really the only reason. I really don't like un-lined ties either for the same reason, you can still make a nice light lined and un-tipped tie without compromising the knot.

    Woo blue in socks.


    Do I pass?


    I kinda wish I'd gone with a light blue obcd, but I think this works for the super casual fit I had in mind.

    There are a couple of things about your ties I have trouble with. I tie a half windsor and am 5ft 9in, not tall, but even with that knot if they were half an inch longer they would be unwearable for me. Also, I know you are supposed to unwrap the tie carefully when you take it off but I could never be bothered and just pull the smaller end through the knot so it unravels. But with yours I strike a big bump in the middle which requires an almighty yank.
    I think the superiority of the knot relates to the knot itself rather than the material. For example with a woollen lined tie I would struggle to tie a windsor which was neat, whereas with silk it wouldn't be an issue. But you could easily tie a four in hand with the wool tie. Trouble is you have to be reasonably tall for that to work. Even with cashmere I need an unlined tie to get the half windsor I like or the knot is way to big. What I mean is that you need to adjust the knot according to the weight of the fabric

    You'll be glad to know this coming season pretty much all will be made 3cm shorter to 147cm. I'm 6"2' so in the past have made them for taller guys in general, but have listened to feedback and will try a bit shorter.
    The part that catching sounds like the tie tac, which all good ties should have. That's why you should undo it not yank it! But I often do it to, though I have an unlimited supply.
