    That's actually a pretty good rule.. It probably applies to pocket squares as well.

    ties that are tied too short or too long.

    tying a tie with any knot is easy, takes 30 seconds, so make your length appropriate.

    You keep telling me not to feed them [​IMG]

    They seem so hungry. Like that poor model up there.


    Spoken like a man who hasn't an ounce of obsession in him when it comes to knots (lucky bastard). Length probably isn't the reason why people here will spend 5-10 minutes trying to get their tie just right. It's all about getting the perfect knot. Though yeah, nobody wants belly button ties or dick ties...length should be addressed if it is an issue.

    I used to hate cargo pants, but they've grown on me. In fact, I bought a couple pairs of flannel cargo pants today - one pair by Cuccinelli and another by Isaia. I plan to wear them for casual and sports wear only, never with a jacket and tie.

    Any straight man who thinks that looks good would probably enjoy that.

    I think a big part of the problem with that suit is how ridiculously skinny that model is. I'm a small guy (any off the rack suit in 36 is noticeably too large for me) but that model takes it to a whole new level.

    well, it depends. i dont have any obsession when it comes to the dimple. it doesn't bother me if i don't get a dimple in my tie, but i do care if my knot is nice, full, perfectly symetrical, etc. i do wear a tie everyday however, and i tie windsor knot, and it *almost* always has the perfect length within a half inch or so. so maybe i'm lucky that way.


    it's rare when you see a tie that reaches your crotch, but the other day i was watching tv and guest came out to be interviewed, and he had his tie down to his crotch, and it looked so awful i wanted to vomit.

    Man, this is turning into a fat woman's forum - "that model is too skinny". Go inject some testosterone guys.

    I think the whole point is that the skinny waifish girly model himself is the one who needs some testosterone.

    In the photo, he's like 6'5" and 108 lbs. It's disturbing.

    Again, is your manhood threatened by his skinniness? WTF does anyone care if they use a super-skinny model?

    Probably because we don't wwant to see men's fashion go the way of women's fashion. That model's shoe is wider in his thigh. If the fashion industry goes hardcore on skinny shit the result will not be pretty. I'm already starting to see not-so-skinny men stuffed into skinny trousers.

    I'm referring to dress pants. Skinny jeans are whatever, but I'm talking about dudes squeezed into skin-tight flannels, worsteds, chinos and cargoes.
