Thanks. The dots in the tie are brown.
I agree. I said this in a different way a long time ago in a different thread and I was crucified.
Now you've made Lilly Pulitzer angry.
This is true, and well said. I meant it more as a harmless joke. I'd say the average woman puts in more effort than the average man when it comes to style but effort doesn't always translate into knowledge as you said.
Maybe it's my tenure at RL, but I don't mind the collars on NORE's shirts, that being said I don't prefer them. I think this would be great if the shirt were blue and the tie were a blue madder paisley. Replace the square with white linen.
NORE's collar here is too low, but I don't mind the shirt otherwise. It is what it is, a dandified Jermyn street sharpie shirt.
Yeah, given his size, this collar style just looks way too small on him.
Thanks man. 95% of my shirts have the Regent collar and of those maybe half are contrast collars. I love them and snap them up whenever I can find one in 16.5 36/37. I have two Keatons which are both contrast collared. I agree that choosing a good tie with these shirts can be difficult which is why I have been leaning more toward textured ties with pindots. I have a couple of madders and some geometrics but none solid.
In other news; these pics I have been posting are old as some of you know but I've done so to assist with the recent commentary momentum of late. Since now I mainly dress up for social occasions, it will be some time until I post newer pics. Even though I only own 8-9 suits with many of them seasonal, I never appear to be wearing the same thing which is a plus IMHO. And being that I'm not dressing up for business, I can dandify my look as I wish, hate it or love it. I happen to love it.
I think it has more to do with the camera angle which is why the neck band is so visible. You guys know how the Keaton collar sits.
I won't ask how you know this.
Nore's PS is definitely in the category of donkey urine. Just dreadful.
Tie and square are hideous, not just that they don't work together, they don't work simply.
When you miss you really miss big, like Dave Kingman. That gives me an idea ...
My mistake. I thought Foo said, "Disgust." Never mind.
People who work for technology companies + in the South = perfect storm. Work with them every day. It's depressing. And indeed, if you wear anything different from their uniform, they ask if you're on your way to a wedding. Occasionally someone will ask my advice/opinion on a matter of dress. When I suggest starting with something that actually fits, like a smaller size shirt or flat-front pants, they're like "well, I don't want to look gay."
+ (too many points)
This is Very well put foo and certainly is true in US. I suspect it has been going on for a while but this tendency has skyrocketed in last 2 decades I think (up till 80s it wasn't so bad). Moreover, if a straight man happens to have decent enough taste, he is often reminded by others to yield in favor of a feminine/gay opinion.
