    One man's "hung up" is another man's "attention to detail."

      Okay. Or obsessiveness.

        A lot of people would classify all of us who pay more than minimal attention to how we dress as obsessive. It's a broad spectrum and where one falls on it is a subjective call. I'm OK with having opinions about tie knots.

          Personally I took it as a compliment haha when you're getting down to small things that 80% of the population wouldn't notice I think I'm doing well. I tried the Pratt knot and I like it. I have two RLPL ties bought both from a store so I know they are authentic. The paisley one is very nice thick material ties up amazing the black stripe one I love the looks esp with a charcoal suit but I can't tie great. The Pratt knot too care of it.

                          That sound you didn't hear (but would have if you were in the same room as me) was a sharp intake of breath caused by seeing suede in the snow. I have no doubt that you know what you're doing there, but I am conditioned to be paranoid about suede and moisture.

                          In other news, those boots look great!

                            Sprayed them with Nano Protector as soon as they arrived. Ever since watching this video, I'm much less uptight about wearing suede.

                              Excellent. I'll send you my address so that you can forward them on. Do you think that you can get them here by Friday?

                              My jealousy is transparent.

                                Fantastic link. I didn't know it worked that well but suspected it did. Sort of like this video (not sure if it's meant for suede):
