    Thanks! I do both buttoned and unbuttoned and just go with whatever mood I'm in at the time.

    idk what you mean by "stylistic", but in my case mostly decisions about the length and buttoning point. In each case Mina did exactly as I asked but my preferences changed slightly and it also looked a bit different all finished than in the fitting. The addition of buttons actually does change the visual effect IMHO.

    That was a Drakes via ebay find.

    Like Michael Jackson, it's black and white.

    Vanda had one but now all I can see is the same pattern in linen or rawr silk.

    Like Roger said, Kent Wang has one that looks very similar. Have only tried his knit ties so don't know how the others are.

    No, that's my preferred way of wearing three-piece suits..

    Kent Wang makes a real solid 6-fold shepherd's check in b/w.

    Thanks gents. Looks like the 3.5 inch is out of stock at Kent Wang. Hopefully it will be back in stock soon, a good black and white shepherds check in silk appears to be rather elusive.

    Two different outfits. I snapped two of the first one to better show the tie detail.

    Geez, the silhouette and fit on this suit are just perfect. It's things like this that make me wish I could afford bespoke. Congratulations, that's all I can say...

    Very nice. My only nit is that I would have had the jacket cut a hair shorter.

    To bring back an old discussion, this is a pretty nice use of a BD collar with a suit.

    ^ Looks great Slew, but maybe remove the label from right trouser leg?


    PS application not covered here, but it does say there are no rules in the way of using TENUGUI.
