    Pretty much every outfit that includes a tie could potentially look better without one. It's one of these things where you have to ask the question before you decide to wear it cause it might just be too much.

    I don't think I wore a tie in 2009, maybe once with a matching Thom Browne suit.

    I'm giving myself a crash course on knit design this week [​IMG] Need some handknit sweaters... want a Nordic or Fair Isle and my TOJ oxford shirts to wear under my fur collared brown Bomber with insulated lining, some new crispy raw jeans to hold a crisp cuff, and a good pair of boots to take me through the next few months of winter.
    TOJ fairisle and nordic knits would be the shit.
    ^Even a black one?

    Unrelated:
    Sometimes I'm amazed at how so many guys balk at 'working' on a garment to get it to fit just right. I'm thinking of the "will this t shirt shrink?!?"-type questions, or paying someone to replace buttons.

    Word. I never feel like a shirt or pair of pants is mine until I've busted a button or two and sewn it back on myself.

    Even though we might lose a couple nice looks in the cull, I feel that men's fashion would be overall better if all ties suddenly disappeared forever and were never made again. That's just me though.
    [​IMG] Agreed, if it doesn't serve a function "clip it". In advance of disagreement aesthetics/form is not function.

    Yeah it's mostly a marriage/funeral thing for me, very few exceptions aside. I just like dress shirt better when they're not burdened by a tie.

    Only time I wear a tie is in an MC setting. I don't want to be strangled otherwise.

    to clarify, i dont advocate wearing a tie without a coat to look cool. only when a dress code requires a tie. if it doesnt require a coat im not wearing one unless its winter. fuck a coat in the coastal texas summer. id rather not have everyones approval than sweat like a pig

    You love horizontally tight stuff, just imagine short sleeves are like tightness but vertical!

    I like the way you don't think. [​IMG]

    Uh, no. Black Tie, White Tie, and any suit. Then again, if you're matching a suit with a tie....... Random thought: I kind of get the feeling that less than half the people here actually know how to dress, the rest just make stupid threads about what matches what and which item SF prefers.
