    Thanks, mate!
    Ok, I'll admit I cheated: I only wore this fit this morning, before we went out for the birthday party. So feel free to ignore my entry if it's not by the rules.

    Since I am not in the office on Friday this week, this will be my entry. My usual bad PhotoBooth photos, but since this is all about the tie, it doesn't matter so much...

    Deets: nicely wrinkled Isaia fine navy and white stripe cotton summer suit*, CT shirt in large sky gingham, pale yellow and navy w. sky blue Corneliani silk knit tie, vintage silvertone tie bar, standard white cotton hank. Not seen: Bally mid-brown leather and beige woven cotton shoes, blue and white socks.

    *which now fits perfectly thanks to my being on my way to getting back into shape for competition - I've lost 3.5kg over the last year (or around 8lbs) I look at last year's shots wearing this suit, it looks uncomfortably tight. I think I was wearing it more in the hope that it should fit me rather than that it actually did...

    I was also wearing this earlier in the week, which would also have qualified: Pal Zileri Abito Privato brown suit with blue pinstripes, blue CT shirt, silver RLPL silk knit tie, vintage green-edged yellow silk PS. Unseen: vintage silver David Andersen tie bar, chestnut Stemar v-tips, brown Mazarin socks.

    I have been disconnected from SF for a few weeks concentrating on writing while the usual interruptions of academic life subside over the summer, but I noticed on Cotton Dockers tumblr that the challenge was knit tie and I'm wearing one today, so here it is. Taking a risk with the striped shirt against the Glen Plaid, I know.

    I like this overall, particularly the colour combination, but I can't say I am a fan of the printed grenadine tie - and perhaps this is true of printed grenadines generally, but this is the first I've really seen close up - because of the texture, to my entirely subjective eye, it looks a bit 'unfinished', like the pattern is just sketched on.

    Love some of the outfits so far. Really shows how versatile even knit ties can be paired.

    Me today. It was still warm so opted for linen shirt. It's obviously a suit so lower half looks the same + brown captoe oxfords.

    Still have no grenadine ties, never seen one in a store around here.
