Thanks! Yes, the suit has a blue overcheck.
In my mind, a tie bar is there to stop a tie from dangling, not keep it up (as a tie pin would). So the ideal placement would be around your natural waist.
Thanks; I see it as Monkeyface below, a lower placement would be less dandy. But again, we're really nitpicking here; you always look great.
Actually now I can't under it it does seem a bit high, and I wonder if mine is too. I feel like moving it down half and inch or something would be more than fine, or a bit more just so it likes out, but that's my preference.
I think Kulata's using the tie bar to give the tie a 'roll'. Can't describe it right, but it's like foofing out a bit between the knot and the bar.
That made me laugh. I agree that Sug kills it, but I think he's far from dandy. Yes, dandier than you, but still on the conservative side of things.
you are right.. he is the only one that I could think of when I wrote that statement..but you are more of a dandy dresser... for some reason you did not pop in my head..
Im chocsosa, not kulata...lol
Rtc is racist!
One time, he got me confused with this dude named Rudals. Lol
AS, what about today? Do the pants give me some dandy cred?
Add a handsome face and a lot of inches and i'll be Chocsosa
Or the Panda hat?
Oy, I'm so sorry.
Those pants are amazing. Love the tie too. You're leaning in the right direction, but you haven't jumped the fence yet.
I think you're on the right track with your thinking. You could try a dark blue PS (a nice light grey suit like that is about the only thing they look good with), also darker brown, burgundy. White linen square fold would work too. I would stick to a plain shirt (blue or pink would work) as the stripes tend to clash a bit with the PoW check IMO. As for tie, the dark brown shantung works, as would summery prints like these if broken up with an unpatterned shirt as a backdrop: Just my 2¢.
LOL @ that panda hat, SB. But wearing it at that angle may be a bit too dandified.
Speaking of which, of course the ideal placement of a tiebar is at the bottom of a deep dark drawer.
Edit: there seems to be a misunderstanding about the meaning of 'dandy'. IMO dandy is not the same as peacock, which seems to be the interpretation here. Am I right?
Separate names with a comma.
