    It's long enough to touch the bottom of the picture. Beyond that, nobody can say.

    Who made it?

    It's hard to tell from this picture, but that jacket looks too long.

    The Thom Browne look has yet to capture every heart and mind.

    It was a joke. Did you actually take another picture or did you already have 2 shots with different ties on your hard drive?

    The length looks just fine to me. Manton, is that a vest peaking out?

    I change ties three times a day as a matter of course.

    Yep, there's a vest under there.

    Forgive me...


    ...but is grenadine a brand of tie, or is it the style/pattern type?

    Type of pattern. I currently have two grenadines being made for me by Sam Hober, a light yellow and a medium navy. I'll try to post some pictures once I receive them -- either bad cell phone pictures immediately, or good shots of them being worn once I can commandeer a friend's digital camera. Manton: Are there any rules to dictate whether or not a vest worn with a double-breasted suit must also be double-breasted? Can't imagine wearing that sort of three-piece suit in a well-heated office, but I guess the vest would allow you to cool down by removing your jacket when you otherwise couldn't (because it would show your braces). Either way, it all looks good except that you're much too tall. Please decrease in height.

    Grenadine is a type of weave, not a pattern.

    A DB suit, if it takes a vest (and this is uncommon), should only take an SB vest.

    If only I had been good at basketball, my height might have done me some good. As it is, it only increases the amount of cloth I have to buy for CMT projects.

    It might have helped here too.

    And yet it didn't. 6' 4" & change, 180 lbs. Built like a telephone poll. Not a look the ladies like.

    A push poll, I imagine [​IMG]. Good to have our eminence grise back.

    See, there's the real problem. Spelling-bee champs get action like you would not believe.
