    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.
