    Gray cotton suit. Not every suit has to be worsted wool. This one shows what I mean by "adult garanimals". Gray (suit), blue (small check in shirt, tie, and pocket square), and brown (shoes, belt) mix wonderfully and rarely clash...it's always a safe, complimentary group of colors to work from. This is pretty easy to get right if the fit is on point.

    Instead of wearing a big, loud tie I've got a small pocket square. Again, the blues compliment but don't match.

    Tailoring wise, the back view shows something interesting about me...my right shoulder sits lower than my left, so there's a wrinkle across the back. A custom suit ($$$$$) would fix that, but I could never spend that kind of money (plus nobody else cares). Don't sweat the small things. It's okay to dress well, just don't take yourself too seriously. They are just clothes, after all.

    This is pretty.
    And I totally forgot how freaking tall you are.

    I wish I had your style, knowledge for finer clothing and reasons to wear them.

    I have a question about tie knots. I am a bit embarrassed to say I only know how to tie one knot that I learned almost 30 yrs ago in the service. I think it's a Windsor but I don't even know....it's a small knot. I have noticed some very big bold knots being worn and was wondering what are they? Is the knot of a tie determined by the suit? By the occasion? Or no matter just preference? I have a thick neck and I'm not sure if that has anything to do with knot size....

    It can also depend on the tie. Jos A Banks Executive series ties are awesome, but $$$$$. I only buy them on sale or if I have some Banks Cash to redeem. They have a thick(ish) material in the middle that gives them good body and makes them lay flat. A double Windsor with one of these ties, or one like it, carries decent body and has a good size to it. I have a silk tie or two that I don't care much for because the knot looks tiny and they tend to slip open a little easier.

    @Avocado_AS5, Sunday edition. Tieless.

    This one fits me slightly less well, and is probably in the running for my least favorite suit. It needs a little more tailoring at the waist, and the wool is just...flat, the color doesn't pop. Shoulders are also more padded than I like. If I did it over again, this is one I wouldn't buy.

    When going tieless, get that second button undone and show a bit of neck. Just don't go lower. Please. Seriously.

    Sooo, that’s a hard NO on showing a little navel?

    Might be your least favorite, but yup.. you look great!
