Morning, thoughts on my tie clip placement here. My rule of thumb was always between the 3rd and 4th button, but that looked off so raised it a bit.

I swear it is straight, think it is just the angle! Other comments welcome, don't wear a full suit often, just fancied it today! Cheers

After a day yesterday of clouds and rain, the sun has returned to NYC, along with seasonable temperatures, making it possible to dress up.

Someone recently asked about my watch - specifically, about my Cartier watch, which spent an inordinate amount of time at Cartier, getting a new watch band. I've included it in the close up shot, so that Cartier's efforts (and my cash for those efforts) can be appreciated.

A friend also inquired as to what I might look like, wearing a cowboy hat. As I have only one Stetson that might qualify as "cowboy", I've included it in today's photos, although it is rather at odds with the rest of my attire.

Finally, I had occasion, this past weekend, to observe the flowering trees in park spaces all over Manhattan - a trek conducted almost entirely on foot, some ten miles of it, from Murray Hill to Grant's Tomb, and back again. A couple of shots from that excursion are included, if only to prove that I can breathe without wearing a tie, and that I indeed own jeans.

Suit - Paul Stuart
Shirt - Brooks Brothers MTM
Tie - Charvet
Cufflinks - The Persian Shop, NYC
Braces & face mask - New & Lingwood
Pocket square - Ede & Ravenscroft
Shoes - Harris, via Barney's NYC

I think the placement of a tie clip is down to personal preference. The Prince of Wales often wears his very low on the tie:

Agreed, its personal preference. But to my eye, yours looks too, high. I also prefer a bit more of an angle, vice attempting to wear it straight.

Got a black market haircut today. Then, I proceeded to my black market job; since making a living in Toronto is currently illegal. I was then told to go for a walk while the partners had a meeting. Lasted two hours. So, I walked around the city where I managed to take this:

It’s not much, I know.

However, I did spend the rest of the day hand-padding lapels so if you’d rather see pictures of that, here:

Cool braces and watch. In my mind, the handkerchief doesn't work with that tie, or vice versa. I like the hat... Now do a motorcycle helmet!

I've never noticed Charles wearing a tie clip before. I suppose that's the point of wearing it so low...it won't be seen with the jacket buttoned.
