    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.

    Manton,

    What is the theory behind your lapels - as you have said they are very wide. Personal preference?

    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.

    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.
