Outfit - The archer


I included the profile pic (below) to show you the 'arch' that I love creating with my ties. It's best to secure the tie using a clip, underneath the waistcoat, to achieve this look. Loads of people hate it and prefer a flat tie - it's personal choice. A lot of arch-purists think my arch is too messy and all-over-the place but I don't mind the luxe-scruff of it all...

Waistcoat - H&M (buttons added)

W,

You're welcome. Thanks for your fun articles and blog comments. I think of myself as a very frustrated fashion designer - in another life that's the career I would pursue. So I have tons of questions/comments, but will limit it to one. You recently wrote an article in Flair about neckerchiefs, which I love the idea. As my budget is limited, I have taken to using my pocket squares as neckerchiefs. I happen to have a nice looking collection, and they seems to look right - just curious what your thoughts where on using pocket squares in lieu of the real thing. Sorry for the long message.

Cheers,

Keith

Keith,

Big pocket squares make perfect neckerchiefs. The effect is what is important so 'the real thing' isn't absolutely vital - a nice silk pocket square is actually better in some circumstances. I have used them myself.

Best,

W
