I understand your point but disagree. Even with perfectly balanced back and front blades the tie will appear to be too long with high rise trousers. We see this effect in this thread quite regularly. The solution is to either make a larger knot, or to knot the tie so the front blade is shorter. The back blade can be either tucked into the trousers or not. In all of these
cases the solutions are suboptimal.
I wasn't suggesting that it would solve the problem entirely, just that it would look better than it does now. But yes, you're right, a larger knot and/or tucking in the back blade would surely help.

The weather in NYC, after a few days of overcast or rainy weather, has reverted to sunny and pleasant - a perfect day to get suited up and face the world. Today's suit is one of my first suits, in my current size, from Paul Stuart, acquired some ten years ago. I think that I might take it to my alterations tailor and see if there is anything he might suggest to do to it - for myself, the shoulders seem a little too extended, and the trousers could be tapered and shortened a bit. A project in the works, perhaps.

Suit - Paul Stuart
Shirt - Tyrwhitt
Tie - Polo Ralph Lauren
Cufflinks - a craft fair in the Recoletas district, Buenos Aires
Braces - Paul Stuart
Pocket square - no name brand
Shoes - Stefano Branchini via Bergdorf's
Face mask - New & Lingwood.
