YOU 'DA MAN! I'll try them!
Off topic, but a good rule of thumb is that if we can see the inside lining of your jacket sleeves, then those sleeves need to be slimmed down a bit. Gaping anything makes us look slightly sloppy. Just my two cents.
Great advice. But you're seeing the lining because I thought it'd be cool to unbutton one button on the jacket. I'll rebutton it up.
Yes;;;; I am so beating this suit like a dead horse but I am really trying to look for the right tie & suit combo. And lastly, opinions on the shoes? THANKS!!!
Shoes are good (PA's?). Ties less so. Knot less so. Those knots are giant and that collar is small. Even with a spread collar they'd be too big.
Okay, I will definitely lose those shirts. Thank goodness I only bought 2. I was gonna get 2 more but they are too fitting.
As for the shoes, they're Gucci. Thought they were pretty cheap for Gucci.
Wow, so neither of those ties work for you? I mean, are they that bad or at least passable?
As for the knot, what knot should I use? I'll learn it and do it.
is it just me or is the first time not good at all? I think I'll return that one. I like the first time better. I like conservative.
Pants length perfect ... Difficult to achieve
I think both ties are at least passable, and potentially quite nice (I assume the magenta one is actually a bit more subdued, and has a bit more apparent pattern/texture in life). Your tie knots, however, are awful -- way, way too big and sloppy. I think you should dial down the number of wraps you're using (if you are using a full windsor, drop down to half windsor; if you are using a half windsor, drop down to a double four in hand), and you need to tighten the knot up by pulling down on the wide end of the tie.
Before you get more shirts, measure the distance between your jacket lapels at your collarbone. Make sure the collar points on the shirt are at least that wide. If you look at the WAYWRN or whnay's good taste threads, you'll rarely see anyone's collar points (unless they are wearing a button down collar).
I agree with the above poster on the knots. Also, the second tie is definitely decent...the first seems way too satiny.
The knot isn't a full Windsor, could be a half Windsor
I do double loop and take up from the bottom. Thats the problem.
It's interesting ... The whole concept of a Windsor was to create a big knot and was extremely fashionable in approx. 1920s ... The fashion is now for FIH style. Its just we've brought back many 1920 fashions (like Glen Plaid) but leave out the tie knot
