I feel like the most Texan thing I could say right now would be something like, “You tell your NYC associates I will wear my denim shirts whenever the damn hell I want. I live in Texas.”Stop this denim shirt nonsense, or I will tell my business associates in NYC about S&M.
Not sure if serious.Incidentally, this gives an opportunity to explore why the Windsor knot is considered gauche in some circles. It suggests that the wearer is trying to imitate his betters by tying a wide knot, but without the capital to afford custom made ties. And so he comes up with a clever method of tying his necktie in an effort to hide his lack. Of course, this view is probably outdated due to the availability of modestly priced custom ties available today, but the necktie elitism echoes to this day. Nevermind the fact that most people who tie the Windsor know don't even know who the Duke of Windsor is. But these obscure facts explain why the FiH is, to this day, thought to be somewhat aristocratic and the Windsor thought to be "Mid-West grain salesman."
I didn't keep the old stitching, sorry.You guys had sleeves shortened before on S&M suits? I’d like to, but it would be the first time I’ve needed that. Anyone have after pics of the “old” stitching after being removed?
SM jackets are the only ones that came in perfect length and I'm really detailed on getting the right sleeve lengths.You guys had sleeves shortened before on S&M suits? I’d like to, but it would be the first time I’ve needed that. Anyone have after pics of the “old” stitching after being removed?
Ugh, I had a coworker at a previous job that used to wear this and insist that it was “the most formal knot”. We were in client-facing roles (finance) and he used to wear this to meetings. The knot looked like a P’zone, kind of made me cringe.
The overall sleeves should not be tapered. Tapering could be done just below the elbows to the wrist to achieve a more Neapolitan silhouette with fuller sleeves. But I am totally fine with what they have in the contemporary cut.Rick, imo the latest jacket cut is perfect the way it is but the sleeves can be at least 1cm slimmer. It would look more balanced especially for the Slim cut. Also the genuine horn buttons can have more curves instead of flat if you can find a supplier to keep prices the same.
