    Awesome look! I love that coat color. If you don't mind me asking, what style and size is the SuSu??

    @JPK4242 - Your fit today is by far the best one you have posted. The colors bounce around a bit with the lighting, but the only thing I would possibly change in the selection is maybe dark brown shoes instead of black (I do like the blucher brogues though). Fixing your gig line and possibly sizing down a size on the shirt would give a sharper appearance as well.

    Much better than the horizontal striped shirt you posted the other day. That shirt would be unflattering on 95% of the population--I would recommend getting rid of it. http://threads.dappered.com/showthre...-stripe-shirts

    Thanks a ton for the feedback! Sorry for the ignorance but what is a 'gig line'? I think I may try the slim cut versus the classic cut with the BR shirt. Maybe that will have a cleaner appearance? I wear a tie to the office and the medium seems to be the right neck size. I'm afraid sizing down to a small may be too constricting neck wise. I'll definitely take the advice regarding the striped polo. I was considering picking up a striped rugby shirt this fall but it sounds like avoiding horizontal stripes is the way to go?

    Washington in silk/linen/wool in a 42L. I tried a 40L but the 42L just felt better. I am a 40R in some and a 42L in some. I look more based on measurements than sizes since some brands can even be in the 38 range.

    I only think full-windsor looks good on bigger guys with bigger heads so the knot isn't comically small. Otherwise it is FIH exclusively DFIH.

    I'm not talking about a baseball sized knot on a 4-inch tie that only comes down to your belly button like everyone in Italy was wearing in the late 90's. That was always bozo. You can tie it tighter to make the knot smaller. The key is covering the gap from collar to collar and making the knot symmetrical.



    With a spread collar, that is easier to do with a full-windsor. For reference: http://college.monster.com/benefits/...vel-man?page=2

    Here you have a symmetrical FIH that works perfectly with your collar:

    I second the Windsor.
