    [MENTION=14682]Leanderthal[/MENTION] - I am wearing my Chipp rust grenadine today as well though not with that beautiful of a knot. I get a fat stubby knot since it is so thick but the dimple comes through.
    My experience with Chipp grenadine is the same but with difficult dimple. I feel that the underlining is too thick or it could be the custom width (3.5), but I can say with certainty that the end result is by far worse than [MENTION=14682]Leanderthal[/MENTION]

      Thanks, dude! Yeah, yours is a more colorful version, mine is a tan base, brown and olive check with blue windowpane overlay. Your extra colors are fun, I could see myself getting more colorful eventually, but am building from the ground up in terms of my sportcoats. I'm really happy with the button color on it, as well as opting for patch pockets. Those details give the jacket a bit more lively flavor than a lot of my sportcoats which tend toward formal/traditional/conservative. The LP fabric is also buttery smooth, you can really tell the difference vs. lower level fabrics (not to say it justifies the extra cost entirely, but it is rather nice!).

        [MENTION=2622]hornsup84[/MENTION] - steller look today! [MENTION=4069]JBarwick[/MENTION] - I remember you saying something sometime back about Chipps being tough to get a could knot. This is my first Chipps, and it's first wear. it wasn't the easiest knot I've tied, but I was pretty pleased with the end result. It held good too. But man, even if it didn't I love this color!

          Thanks man -- and the rust Chipps is a great color, their colors generally are hard to beat! I own too many to admit, but the wine and rust colors are my favorites. They pair with so much of my wardrobe really well and serve as defaults if I'm having trouble with picking a tie out.

          Talk about the Chipps knot issue made me look back and see how nasty my knot looks in those pics... it looks better in person, just caught at a bad angle toward the camera. Mine (from the last year or two) definitely tie thicker than a lot of my ties, but I kind of like the look.

          Also thinking a navy tie might have done better here, and/or maybe some darker slacks. But the slacks here are more woolen/wintery which I liked for today and the brown was to mimic JBarwick's nice fit from earlier.

            Well, if the picture wasn't enough, then you just sold me with that. Great looking jacket and agree that the patch pockets were the right call. I used to avoid them but found that the style generally works better for a business casual wardrobe. Way more versatile IMO.

              Some great looks this week. Here's my contribution -- hopefully better than my usual grainy office pics:

                      Tread lightly down the pocket square path, quicksand lies beneath.

                        This is exactly what I have been avoiding. I have a standard white, a patterned blue and then a few white w/ colored borders. I really want to get some more interesting ones but I know I would go wild with purchases if I did.

                          A window into my obsession. $140 in ebay money:









                          This is in addition to the five I already own. But some of the new ones will likely be sold to pay for the rest of them.

                          Apologies for the thread derail.

                              Haha! [MENTION=2422]jonATL[/MENTION] speaks the truth. I think I'm up to about 60 squares I buy mostly from Gagliardi. They recently had 30% which is like $10. Can't beat that. I also love Kent Wang for squares, but at $45+ a pop it's a rare treat. Definitely unique and as versatile as they come IMO though.

                                Interesting that the white balance completely changes the color of the suit. What's the model of the watch?
