    RTC, that is without question your best fit yet. I hate the socks and shoes with a passion and would never don them, but all together its working very well for you, and its very much your style. A little fun, which is your jam, and it does not look silly.

    Tie/PS/Pants are a little matchy, but that never bothered me, and the BD collar is a tad small, but that is a small nit.

    Kudos all in all.

    I might frame this and put it on my wall and put little hearts at every corner and stitch it into every piece of clothing in this fit.

    That said: Tie and pants are definitely similar by intent. The PS is more golden yellow than brown though I think it's much more similar than I intended. Oh well, can I just say I meant to do that?

    ZOMG YAY! CELEBRATION!

    I do wear "fun socks" from time to time but this is not fun just wrong. They are out of order. Way out. And not in a sprezz kind of way.
    The rest is great but those socks mate...

    Cheers for the honest feedback. I don't really do sprezz I just like fun socks and thought they worked ok with the fit but I can see how they might not work.

    This is what you should often shoot for, RTC.

    Still trying to figure out my picture set up. For some reason, in this lighting, my camera has a really hard time focusing on some of my jackets.

    That looks like a great tie, @Claghorn . But on my monitor I have a hard time figuring out what material it's made of?

    I think that's a tie your tie raw silk melange? If so, what sort of knot did you end up tying?

    Raw silk. Beautiful tie but it ties a poor knot. (4IH) in this case.

    From the photo, the size of the knot would seem to indicate that either the tie is very wide at the point at which the knot is made, or that is very heavily lined, and therefore thick and unwieldy, or some combo of both. Care to comment, Clags?
