    @EliodA , I think the knots work themselves out over time. You might have to be more patient as you knot the tie, but kind of like greasing a groove, I've found that ties like that need to be broken in for the knot and it gets better if you force the better knot at the start. Some older BB ties are like that but that's because they're stiff starting out.

    @justinkapur Jacket looks great, but I think a shirt with a finer stripe might be better with that tie. Ymmv

    For what it's worth, I think @justinkapur 's (very nice) shirt and (very nice) tie don't work together not just because of pattern scale, but also because the saturation and value between the ground of the tie and the stripe of the shirt are too similar.

    So...now we have to post videos of ourselves wearing suits at our jobs?

    I enjoyed listening to the whole video. [​IMG]

    Like the setting and I generally like wholecuts. What is your plan with the cuffs?

    They probably need another pressing, if that's what you mean. Good news (ish): They got soaked with rain, so just about every crease in them evaporated. So I'll be starting just about tabula rasa when I press them again. :censored:

    I believe that the question is more a resolution of the horizontal crease in the middle of the cuff - obviously, you had the trousers shortened or lengthened at some point. I am sure that a good pressing will take that out (I've had the same thing occur to me - unhappily, with no-iron chinos, and the crease in the middle of the cuff is not disappearing :( ).

    Good luck with the pressing. I just got rained on during my dash for the train. I changed my shirt before leaving work but not my pants. Re the cuffs, I wasnt sure if you had just pinned them up to show the shoes, to test the length or if they were permanent. I generally like taller cuffs and with a good pressing they will add to the outfit.

    Crusty, love the braces. I was not expecting something so whimsical with your overall subded ensemble. Between the darkish tones, the sleepiness, and the snappy braces, I guess that you partied hard over the weekend (hence the sleepiness), rekindled a deep friendship or private love that you don't discuss much (hence the snappy braces, sosomething fun that you keep mostly private) and you did not want the weekend to end (hence the subdued ensemble).

    Disappointed in the fit of this Kamakura shirt. They "updated" the fit with a box pleat and it's 1 inch bigger in the chest and the armhole is slimmer. [​IMG]

    That is the most charmingly fanciful, imaginative take on what I decided to wear of which I have ever heard. Unhappily, it is also quite inaccurate. My early arising was due to a colleague scheduling a conference call/webex at the ungodly hour of 8:00 AM, for the purpose of teaching the unwashed the intricacies of the company's time tracking/project management software. As it was, I was the sole idiot, other than the lecturer and his boss who attended said matinee. Grrrr.

    As for the snappy braces, they were chosen simply because I was tired of wearing the light blue pair that I wear more usually with this suit/shirt combination. Not as suitable a match, but the braces are among my favorites.
