    There's a reason that you can make a career as a professional photographer. Getting an attractive and representative picture is difficult.

    Much less likely that my opinion will be recognized in public.

    For what it's worth the pains that Foo, Manton, Doc, etc, have gone through to get good pics (without disgusting scraggly neck hair, no less!) is much appreciated. I've learned quite a lot from you gents as I'm sure others have. Please continue posting pics and reviews! The amount I've learned in the months since discovering this thread is quite extraordinary. Thanks!

    Now the square looks too much like a swirled, condensed image of your shirt and tie.

    Wider lapels would look better.


    This is why Foo captures our hearts/imagination.

    I meant white silk squares specifically. White silk squares are viscerally disgusting. There is no explanation. Ipsa loquitur.

    Where is UrbanComposition and NiiDawg? I always thought they are among the most tasteful dressers on this forum yet they both seem to be conspicuosly absent from this thread.
