    the bold is i think where i got tripped up. well put, thanks.

    as to the collective look in the culture i was talking about. i think most here would gag if they saw much of it up close.


    thanks, look forward to the thread. yeah, the collar is bad. after the pick i wanted to change, but i was in too big a rush.

    thanks for the PM, i will go through it soon.


    :laugh, i like that.

    Apropos all the discussion of Whnay's teal tie and the discussion of whether more than one "pop" of color is too much, I offer the following. It offended many when I posted it a couple of summers ago, so I am putting it behind a spoiler.

    +1. To clarify, I didn't say that many pops of color is guaranteed to work. I'm saying that having one "pop" and trying to make the rest of the outfit just be a background doesn't appeal to me. The goal is to integrate a seemingly garish item into an elegant whole. Here's an attempt at what I'm talking about...I'd say the color of the tie is fairly attention-grabbing, but I don't think it stands out too much, although this whole thing is much louder than what most here would probably consider good taste:

    I am a [real] Solaro fan. I posted pics of bits of my first Caraceni suit on the LL somewhere.

    Really, I think the tie is actually not bad. Its pairing it with everything else that makes my head hurt.

    As the head of the pop tie collar brigade I fully endorse this photo, wish the shirt was solid blue without phantom stripes....
