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.

Any one else here a fan of the tab?


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.
