    Pull, nice cold-weather outfit. I like the shape and fit on the suit. I suspect the pictures don't do full justice to the fabric and finish of the suit.

    Sharp contrast with the shoes color, but I thinks it works well.

    Full Windsor? I would like a slimmer knot.
    Agreed, nice outfit but go w/ a four-in-hand knot.

      Thanks for the feedback. It's called a Nicky knot. I did a Half Windsor first, but then this one. I find it difficult to get the dimple with the half windsor in a skinny tie, and I wanted a little heft with the semi-spread. I usually do go slimmer, though.

      On the suit - you are exactly right. It's an outstanding suit in fabric, finish and color - I honestly can't believe it's BR, even if it is one of their upgraded collections. It's made from the same wool-cashmere that J. Crew uses, I think - Tollegno 1900.
      Here's the kicker: list price was $650, but with sales and codes, I got the whole suit for ~$110 once it made it to clearance around christmas; a testament to lessons on this site.

        thanks - I rarely wear ties, so it's good to get feedback - I've tied any tie I've owned the same way since high school, i.e. one style of knot. So, I was trying something different and am looking fwd to trying these others.

                  Tried leaving the shirt untucked today, not something I normally do. What do you guys think of this look?

                  The sweater actually fits quite trim, must have ridden up on me when I was playing with kids when I got home.

                    I like the outfit MarkB, and nice lighting improvement on your pics, much easier to see details.

                    I'd say if your at home with the kids, untuck, as I do as soon as I step in the door from work. Out in the world, definitely tuck it in, even on the casual outfit, just looks cleaner IMO.

                      dackman, that's really interesting because that's exactly what I do. I actually have tried wearing my shirt untucked under a sweater with chino "out in the world," and I immediately felt awkward and sloppy. I love wearing it that way at home, though--it feels very relaxed. But out in public I feel like it makes me come across as just another guy who likes to look like a slob (and I don't).

                      However, if I'm wearing jeans, I will almost invariably leave my shirt untucked. Tucked with jeans (almost aways) seems wrong.

                        This is why I posed the question originally. I almost exclusively tuck my shirt in, mainly because I feel that the tails of most of my shirts are too long. I've seen some people pull this look off and wanted to give it a whirl. I did feel kind of sloppy at first, but once I left the house I forgot about it. Sometimes I feel that the tucked in shirt under a crew neck sweater comes off a little stuffy, so I figured I'd try it this way.
