    The right collar height is going to be different from one guy to another - it depends on neck shape and height, and also overall body shape and height

    That's fine, just don't bring the katana. I'd go without the square given the level of formality. Do you have better shoes?

    Consider me an old dirtbag politician. The watch is the only thing that would impress me, and that does not salvage the rest of this outfit.

    That's a sick jacket.

    If I get one summer suit i think i'll do blazersuit configuration in some type of navy linen herringbone.


    Wrong thread bro.

    I like the tie very much, Ethan. Combining a neat-patterned tie and a neat-patterned PS never really works to me though. Also the blues or the PS and shirt clash some to me.
