    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I don't get this outfit, it would work much better with the more rugged elements if you removed the tie and had some thick oxford button down. BTW is the shirt blue with a contrasting collar or just plain white?

    MC trick: if it's casual don't wear a tie, jeans are casual, corduroy is casual, those boots are casual, etc.

    Connery is wearing a three piece with a knit and a spread collar, in a movie, probably set and filmed in the 60s. Our friend is dressing now, with jeans and a lot of casual elements. Same advice as above, ditch tie, replace shirt.

    I did end up ditching the tie. Kept the shirt though. Not because I thought it was a good decision, but because I already had it on. :-X

    I've only got 9-10 shirts I like to wear. That's including casual. Every now and then, one makes it in to the wrong rotation (this is getting expanded. See the one above that arrived today and will probably order 2-3 more at the end of the week).

    SF just doesn't usually see it. :p

    I agree with this. I wasn't saying that a tie was good with that outfit, I was commenting on the specific critique of knit tie + spread collar.

    I wore the boots out of necessity. Same for the tie. Not suggesting they're coherent.

    You were going to one of those semi-formal Italian lumberjack business meetings that are all the rage?

    Nothing fancy, but this is my usual winter work attire given I work in a business casual setting. Sweater and slacks.

    Nope. Traveling to wintry hell for bidness with a carry-on. The boots were my OneShoe[​IMG] for the week.

    Cords are fine with a more casual tie like this knitted one. You know, country chic. Jeans not so much.

    -edit-
    'this' refering to original poster's tie. Not the hunting tie paired with 'country chic' cords in the pic.
