    usually it just depends on the tie, and how malleable the outer layer is. I have ties from the tiebar that have a dimple with similar "deepness"

      Tried tassel loafers tonight for the first time. The grey Nordstrom "Slaters" that Joe recommended back at the beginning of summer are 50% off and I managed to snag a pair in my size. I still think they give off a bit of the old man vibe. I've also done this color palette before, so excuse the repetition, but it's been one of my go to combinations for late night get togethers where I'll be spending plenty of time outside.

        Put a finger on the place where the tie comes out the bottom of the knot. When you pull the tie to tighten it, and you squeeze the knot a bit, push on the tie as it comes out the bottom of the knot. As it tightens up, it will form a dimple. I don't always get it to do that -- sometimes ties just don't want to, or the knot isn't shaped right.

          Eric F, I like the tassel loafers. Don't own any myself, because I think they look best on slim folks. I think I'd really look like an old guy in them.

            It's easier to get a good dimple with a slightly nicer quality tie. This is a LE knit, which is great. And currently some colors are on sale.

              Looks good, BB. I especially like that tie. Also, with respect to the dimple, I find that different knots affect a tie's dimpling in different ways. I get the best dimples with a nicky knot.

                  Funny, I wore almost the exact same outfit yesterday except I had on a gray JCF cotton sweater vest on under a LE linen herringbone jacket. Nice look!

                    Eric, the tassel loafers look great on you, man. I've tried a few variations of them, found at Nordstrom Rack (the ones you have there, another Nordy similar one in grey suede too, and some TBNY wine/burgundy leather ones as well. I love the look of all of them, but they just didn't seem to work well with my feet. Had to take a pass. Wear yours well!

                      Loving the texture on those pants, Shomas. Navy wool Bedfords, right?

                        Is that the most recent tweed herringbone they've put out?

                          I have the exact same jacket, only its the Ludlow linen blazer in khaki/black. Don't think any of the JCF tweeds/wools are that light in color.

                            I think that's right. I picked them up a while ago, so I can't remember for certain, but I think that's what they are. These pants fit me better than any other J Crew or JCF pants. I really like them a lot.

                              great, thanks BB. I youtubed a few videos and learned the same technique you outlined there. It really made a big difference.
