    Yeah, it looks nice and thick. That's a great substantial knot for a FIH. Have you had experience with anything other than the grenadines? I'd like to try some shantung or matka!

      I haven't gotten anything else. I do like the shape/cut of the grenadines, so hope it would be the same for the other ties (although I'm guessing they won't be as thick).

        Definitely found this to be true, although before Chipp, I mostly had TTB, Brooks 346, and JAB ties, which are all much thinner. I normally put my TTB ties into a double FIH to get a substantial knot, but I've found a regular FIH for Chipp is plenty for a good knot.

              WIWY (19May'16)

              First time WIWT poster, here.

              In my engineering world, I've always been among the more presentedable b/c I've always just liked a tucked in collared shirt w/ khakis or jeans. But I had an epiphany a couple years ago when, as manager of 40 people, I was asked to go represent the division at a business attire function. I realized that the only suit I had was the one I got married in 15+yrs prior and I was too fat for the that. The only sport coat I had was light PoW (I though plaid at the time) and I had no matching tie.

              Now, after 2 yrs of haunting dappered, putthison, realmenrealstyle, and Art of Manliness, I'm ready for a WIWT (actually a WIWY...because I couldn't figure out how to get a picture to post...).

              hmmm...still not sure if this grabbed the picture correctly...


              shirt: BB
              jacket: (thrifted) the Andover Shop
              ps: (thrifted)

              Louder color combo than I typically attempt, but I'm routting for orange & blue today, my daughter's heading to the state track me to pole vault and run the 4x200m. Go Huskies!

                Shirt: Express 1MX
                What do you think of the Express 1MX shirt? Good quality? Holding up well? They have a store in the mall near my house and I was looking at some of their stuff yesterday.

                  They fit me great off the rack (Modern Fit Large) besides the neck opening, so it's an easy choice for me in terms of purchase and put on. However, the regular retail price is comical ($69) when there are so many other good options.
                  When they run a sale, like the current 3/$99, I tend to buy some. And I'll go in store and hit up the clearance rack.
                  That's all I buy there, though.
                  And to answer your question: yes, they've held up well for me. Shirt in photo is five years old; no loss of color, no loose buttons, etc
