    For a book signing on Rebel Style I am rather surprised to see an utter lack of insolence.

    I think Bruce is wearing the London Lounge tie from Charvet. Can anyone confirm?

    No, it was a woven shepherd's check.

    In the middle photo is that a tab collar? I like them, but in that photo it really makes it look like the collar is to constricted?
    Any one else here a fan of the tab?

    Looks like a macclesfield in that pic. Can it properly be called that? (In the general sense, not by the strict "made in Macclesfield" definition.)

    And yet reading it gave me a distinct sense of deja lu.

    I have yet to see anyone pull off a tab collar. I think it makes most men apper big-headed, and it looks pinched. Same goes for collar pins.

    Perhaps LabelKing has in his massive photo archives a photo that illustrates the tab collar in an attractive light?

    I think I've seen a picture of a Kabbaz shirt with tab collar, maybe on Tom Wolfe, that looked great because it was more proportioned the way we are used to today. Also in some AA/Esky copies. But I do believe they were meant to be smaller than normal. Dressing the Man has a photo of a well-known socialite wearing one with a tweed suit, IIRC. It makes his head look big, but it's not a bad outfit I think.
