    I know a guy who has a plaid Brioni flannel suit and happened upon a Barbera tie in the same fabric. He wore them wogether with a white shirt and pocket square and it look terrific. I don't advocate the look, but some guys can do it.

    What's wrong with it? I think that suit looks awesome. Unless you're referring to the tucked in matching tie

    This exact suit and tie are featured in the new BG magazine. Maybe it's the latest trend a la Thom Browne. [​IMG]

    Tie aside, I really like that suit, with a nice waist and high armholes. I presume it's RLPL?

    Indeed. I hate the look however, AND why the fuck are they making ties out of suiting material?

    Why not? When I was last in NYC I couldn't put down a wool Prince of Wales-print suiting wool tie at Bergdorfs. I think it was from Barbera. I'd never wear it with my PoW suit, but as a casual-wear tie it's really neat. And while I'm not crazy about the suit pictures, let alone the tucked in matching tie, I could go for the jacket as a sportcoat.

    The true genius of the tie is not shown; it extends farther and includes a special pouch to warm the male appendage. I hear Ralph's version of the 'onesey' is flying off the shelves.

    And you thought that man was just straightening his tie...

    I like suit and tie both, but put together it looks ridiculous. It's a full-on version of the exactly-matching tie and pocket square sets. This would make you look as if you were spray-coated in PoW with a blue windowpane.

    And what's a "onesey"? Do I want to know?

    If only that tie were a vest.

    I love that suit, and I like the tie, but not together.

    Jon.

    Because:

    1. Made you look.
    2. You remember the products ("I don't like them together, but that is a nice suit/tie")
    3. Pisses people like you off.
