    Ed is that DC Zegna fabric? I bought something like that at Tip Top last year. Also, I thought you hated chunky shoos?

    I'm curious as well. Though, I thought I had a decent combination of textures: hop sack jacket, pinpoint Oxford shirt (I realize this is impossible to tell from the picture), fuzzy silk tie and shiny silk ps

    I imagine reaction's suffering because of the image quality. I couldn't have guessed at the shirt color, the square's blown out and I'd bet the picture isn't doing the tie any favors.

    Maybe I shouldn't be posting in this thread. My questioning might be deviating from this thread's main focus.



    Edited.

    Love it, despite the tie being wide for my taste in someone of that frame.

    I appreciate the feedback, but I'm curious what you don't like about it

    I wouldn't describe the tie as no good, but I'm not a fan of the satiny texture of the pink on the rougher texture of the brown.

    Actually, I think he was talking about my tie when I had my picture originally posted yesterday.

    I really need to get a real camera. The pink is actually the same texture as the brown
