    Width rather than length.













    Oh, and bow ties.

    my j m weston captoes. Simple but the last is gorgeous. I think that is what people notice because I swear they are very simple and am suprised people even notice them.

    The compliments I get always seem to be either for a bright tie (fuchsia, green, etc) or if I'm wearing a white shirt/navy suit ("Wow, someone looks sharp today!" that kind of thing). Always from women, which is great

    It was hard to resist your trendsetting white linen TV fold. [​IMG]

    Burberry London Black Peacoat. I've literally had about 12 people compliment me on it. It's all about the fit.

    Usually my sport coats, cuff links, or knit ties. Sometimes, when I wear an adventurous shirt (because I mostly only wear light blue and white). And lately, the size of my tie knots. It's as if the world forgot the FIH existed and only wears fat and ugly knots. And oh, the fact that my shoes are always well polished.

    Relatively cheap Aldo boots (every day that I wear them).
    Also a BCBG tie from Macy's selling for $12.

    Better to be complimented on a whole look than an item. "You look sharp" when wearing stuff that fits right.

    I'm interested to know which Kenneth Cole watch from the previous post. I think non-luxury items do the trick in the general public as long as they look right and the quality control is enough that they last for years.
    About time they made a poor mans watch thread.
