    I wasn't taking issue with your critique, which has merit--a grenadine or knit would have been a more technically sound choice. Rather, I objected to the way you framed it--i.e. that not only was the tie an affront to good taste, but that I needed to immediately dispose of it, then go out any buy some replacements because there was no way I could possibly own any ties that would complement a blue jacket/fawn trouser/blue shirt look. You are by no means the only poster in this thread to adopt this tone, and it's a part of the "institutional culture," but I don't think it's needed to render a useful, direct critique. That's all I was saying.

    I'll own that I'm sensitive with regard to this tie because it was a birthday gift from my partner. This doesn't mean it's above criticism, though! Thanks for the compliment about the rest of the fit.

    P.S. Please do post a fit or two.

    I appreciate the response, and sent you an apology via message. When I'm not changing diapers sometime, I'll be sure to post some fits, and look forward to the responses.

    Thanks, and thanks for the PM as well. I'm just starting to get a semblance of comfort with where my style meets (and often doesn't meet) the conventions of good sartorial taste, so your feedback and critiques are always welcome. Look forward to seeing those fits.

    Thanks for these awsm pics Anden. Helf expecting a Troll to jump out at u it looks so Nordic. Those colors (greens and lite browns) really work for yr complexion IMO
    Damn, I thought these were Dovers. Can't quite make out if they have the pie-crust stitching. They're a terrific take on the EG.

    Awsm fit.

    My favourite fit of you, so far. Everything about it is perfect! Textures, patterns, colours, coherence, just perfect, IMO.

    From last Thursday. I went in for my suit fitting today. We're lengthening the sleeves and pants and letting the waist out a bit. The button stance and gorge are a little higher than I would like, but it'll work. I'm excited to get it back and give it a spin.
