    Double Breasted Navy today. Was curious what people thought of a fine check and a striped tie? Thrifted this brioni tie yesterday, I think it is sexy as hell :)

    @arnathor, I appreciate the attraction of a high end tie, but to my eye it looks outdated. Sorry.
    @Kulata, why the final voyage ? and lovely tie btw

    Thanks man. It's being gifted to a cousin for his wedding and I have a similar one currently being made.

    @arnathor give us an idea of the bottom. Suit?

    ^^ Yes sir, it is a classic proportioned worsted-wool, dark navy, big ol' cuffs on the bottom, held up by braces.
    Well, everyone has an opinion - the quality and the hand-feel of this tie was too good to pass up.

    Unusually for me, I am almost totally cee bee dee today...

    Deets: PRL Made in Italy 3-roll-2 navy pinstripe (perhaps the fabric is a little bit fancy for true CBD); white texture stripe CT Black Label shirt; Conrad Wu PoW tie; white cotton PS; + (unseen) navy socks and black C&J Hallam captoes. Unfortunately you also get to see my bike helmet hair, and, due to my very limited photographic equipment (i.e. webcam), you don't get to see the absolutely perfect cuffs and break on the trousers...

    2/3 of the shot is of your head. What's up with that. Can we get a shot of your outfit? Jacket sounds like it might be cool.

    Great patination Cleav. There's no way to fake such a perfect worn in patina.

    Since my knowledge on shoes is limited, has there been a decrease in Grenson's quality?

    28 years is impressive. Any significant events occur while in those shoes?
