lol, i know nothing about them. great intro, thanks.
They are pretty welll made, but definitely over-priced at retail.
Nice overall. I have that tie.
Did you get it off that excellent eBay seller who also had lots of similar Hardy Amies and Althrupp & Peel printed ties?
Manton, I wish the tie were just a bit darker, but that's probably a quibble.
As do I.
Unless the square is your focal point; it seems to overpower everything else.
What is the theory behind your lapels - as you have said they are very wide. Personal preference?
Yeah. He had some great new old stock ties.
manton can you explain your thought process on why you decided to go with that square? only asking to learn
manton, looking good. way to keep the thread above water. props.
I like Mantons lapels. I am curious how the width on those lapels play into body type. For example, I am about 6' 4" and 230 pounds, how would a wide lapel look on someone of my dimensions? Alternatively, how does body type play into lapel width?
probably pretty good...but depends on your proportions.
Just an FYI, my question wasn't snark.
Very different look today. I couldn't decide on the green tie or the brown - I thought I would throw it open to discussion. Shirt is a little rumpled underneath because I was hurrying and my photog was leaving. I have since smoothed things out.
I think the tie is a bit too close to the jacket in color and tone (though that just might be bad pic quality or my monitor). Also, I'm always hesitant to wear a tie lighter than my suit. And even more so when the tie is lighter than my shirt and suit. I think you pull it off, but I personally would prefer a tie in a richer, muted color (maybe a faded maroon, tinted green or washed out blue). Just my $0.02.
