    tie is my favorite part here. maker?

    and this leads to my PS issue. not only would i never have thought to use that PS with the rest of the rig, to me, it seems off. but i imagine i am wrong. hence, i have given up on that for now, and i will just work on the suit/sc, shirt and tie combos.

    :(

    The neat-patterned silk from that square would make a great tie.

    :hide:

    Edit: Maybe the joke wasn't in good taste...

    I thought squares in tie patterns were Square Fail (TM)

    Love everything else.

    I don't know whose theory that is but I emphatically disagree with it.

    a bit casual for the office, to be sure. but "in good taste"?

    also, apologies for the crappy iPhone picture and wonky camera angle.

    Wait, you smell that?
    

    What fabric is this? I would like to commission a gray three-piece for more formal occasions and looking for something in the mid-gray to dark gray (but not charcoal) range. Considering something other than worsted, but something classic. Suggestions?

      "Clapey, is your favourite colour green?"


    Actually yes. Admittedly I have been wearing the heck out of this tie, not only because I love the colour of this hober, but because I'm traveling right now and only have access to three ties in total.
    I think this is the only green item of clothing I own.

    Unbel - what did you have in mind? Bengal stripe?

    I have not tried that with this jacket but the check pattern may be small enough that it would work. I treat this pencil stripe shirt as an effective solid that adds a bit of texture, but I'll try the light blue Bengal stripe next time, although I don't think the green tie would look as good with the broader white ground - would probably go navy tie. thoughts?

    Have you considered flannel or sharkskin?
