    My belief is not whether he will reach 120K posts, but rather that it will be done way before 2017.

    Thank God. Otherwise, I would've pulled the trigger on it. But now I know I need a rusty maroon neat. So. Off to search the internet for one.

    I don't suppose you have a passable picture of it in the wild?

    That fit makes me think of mint chocolate chip ice cream. It was an interesting experiment, but I don't think I'll wear that shirt with a tie again.

    (I wear it frequently with jeans though)

    Deets, Stitch?

    You only wear those with suits, yes?

    @AJL
    How do the Shibumi's knot? I haven't handled one so curious about any other features you might wish to comment on.

    in order, borrelli, panta, borrelli.

    i have worn the first one, possibly my favorite tie i own, with a SC, see below. i no longer have that shirt tho, did not like the shade and saturation of blue.

    i might do it again, and i would consider the panta with a SC too, but the bottom borrelli is suit gear only. i would guess some might say all 3 are suit gear only.

    i have one. great silk, but the one i have is a very thin and light tie, so not easy to get a great dimple, but it can be done and i like the knot a lot.

    and i i love the tie. here:

    As stitch suggests, it is thin & delicate (unlined) and takes a little bit of doing but makes and holds a nice knot. Lovely silk. Also the only Shibumi I own.
