    MrChris exemplifies the wisdom of purchasing classics as the basis of a wardrobe. All five looks would be among the 1% on any given day in WAYWRN.

    I cannot get past the yellowness of Butler's tie. I'm sure there's a lovely ensemble beyond that. (Seriously, though, is that the new NSM you posted in the folded shirt porn thread?)

    I think I have said this multiple times here but I will again. The thing I like about this tie is that with the nekkid eye you only see a brown pindot with blue dots. On film (and under certain lighting conditions), however, the crop circles show up. I didn't even realize this tie had crop circles until I photographed it which is a shame because it is really a nice tie.

    Suit and shirt are excellent, while the tie and square are not to my taste. All the different elements together are a bit much.

    I can't stand Hermes ties any more.

    They make some good ones that are totally un-stereotypically Hermes.

    Don't think of them as crop circles; think of them as my initials:

    Manton, do you take your jackets off when you're driving? Legit question.

    Not even when you're on the West Coast?

    I like this but wish the tie were darker, redder.

    I have about three that I bought knowing I'd never wear them. Never have and probably never will.

    I used to love this shirt, but now I'm afraid it needs to be culled. Interested in opinions on its place on the good taste spectrum.
