    Hober tie and pocket square on this one. Included a photo of the shoes just for you, Stitchy.

    All of the above comments are correct. The fit just didn't quite work. I think Kulata nailed it best - it's a shiny silk tie and I should have worn something a bit slubbier.

    I might try this tie as part of a CBD look with a white shirt and dark suit. If that doesn't work, off to Spoo it goes. It's Canali, so someone will want it.

    Squatting is one of the most inelegant positions the human body can take.

    The prevalence of colon cancer would be reduced if humans squatted more.

    No SF club tie = fail. Yes, this applies to me as well...

    In all seriousness, I do like what you did with this fit.

    Squat or no squat, this fit is probably the best CBD I've ever seen. Every aspect utterly on-point, and to add insult to injury, he's outrageously handsome. How dare he.

    I don't know that much about CBD, but I think the shoes are a bit casual for the suit. And he has two of his cuff buttons undone. He is Italian though.

    It's the shoe and cuff sprezz which make this fit so great. In a uniquely Italian way.

    Since Stich is fortunately being slow, I'll squeeze these in here.

    At the the local futbol match the a couple days ago

    This is a little bland for me but I figured it was a tie you guys would like. My vest is a little askew because I had small children riding on my shoulders:

    Apparently shouting "don't hit the guy in a suit with a water balloon, I'll kill you" makes you a instant target. Oh well, fortunately it WAS only water.

    And no, I am not about to rob a bank. It is protection from the smoke. Things get a little rowdy on the supporters side:

    [​IMG]

    I ended up watching some of my friends kids for a bit and we all became became part of the halftime show and it's famous jhort cannon. All in all another great match. Especially since won 3-1.
