Chamy, you are a good looking guy! Great haircut.

Do not let that go to your head.

Next fashion challenge for you: Tie clasps. The long skinny ones that clip. Not the pins that go through the material.

p.s. Do not let your boss catch you taking pictures in the men's room!

Ah, thank you, Dew I cannot live without American Crew hairgel.

I do have some tie clasps that look like this one. Is this the one you're talking of?

My boss is female. She can't be found in the men's room I've made no secret to the fact that I actually prefer working for women as they make more coherent decisions in senior positions than men.

I have one similar to this. My father actually gave it to me. He bought it like almost 45 yrs ago in Germany. Really nice. I can't find it though.
My cousin in France, she tells me European men have no pressure of what to wear and what not. She even says grown up European men listen to teeny bopper songs like an equivalent to Jonas Brothers (she used that example), without the fear of being written off as naff, effeminate and such.

European society is different. And for the better.

Yep. They look great (and add a touch of authenticity) with the early 60's era skinny tie. You should be able to find some great ones. JFK gave out clips that looked like PT boats. My dad (who worked on the space program) had one that looked like a missile.

Seriously??? That's awesome. When I was in college in India, I briefly did an internship with the ISRO (Indian equivalent of NASA). I regret to this day that I didn't stay there for good. My major is called "Electronics and Communications Engineering". The communications part was completely satellite communications and micro/radio stuff.... too bad I don't use it any longer.

JFK is a well-dressed man. He probably is the most stylish Prez there ever existed. And he wore skinny ties.

It was all those white shirts and Brooks Brothers suits.

(I'd ask if you felt the earthquake but, knowing you, would get a comment on the earth moving. )

I love Brooks Brothers, but their fitting was never perfect for my body's layout. It was always bigger and more loose.

I didn't feel the quake at all. As a matter of fact I came to know only when they announced in the broadcast. However, the hurricane buggered me up pretty bad.

I almost packed my favourite shoes, shirts and cufflinks to flee

Today's combo. People said a few nice things about them



The rim is darker metal and it's shiny throughout and the main body is some form of steel/silver like metal. It felt like it was cookie cutter made for my black dotted shirt. And I love this tie.



Looked much better and pressed in the morning without any wrinkles.

I need to pick up more, with winter coming up. And they are transferring me to a new building, which has stricter dress code even on Friday.

I think I may have found one for my black shirt.

New Men's Laser Print Flower Pattern Silver Cufflinks | eBay

iirc all the Kennedy brothers (and their father Joe Sr) wore Savile Row English tailored suits. Brooks Brothers back then generally favored the undarted balloony American-style sack suit, which was the staple of white collar middle managers all across the USA back in the 50's and 60's.

Btw- Do you just have Double Cuffed dress shirts? No Single button cuffs or barrel cuffs? Is your office that formal where you wear suits every day? Even my friends who work in IB don't have to wear suits with ties anymore
