    Suited skate punk professor? Great photo. When the punk rock kids grow up, generally, they are the best dressed.

    He’s not wearing a belt because he’s rocking the less obvious braces aka suspenders. Super dapper look.

    How I have always been told, and this has been re-affirmed by Thom Browne’s particular rulebook, is that a tie-bar (if worn) should be placed roughly 1/2 way in between the collar and belt.

    @ khordkutta I agree with the 3-4 placement and so do the stylish gents over at the United States Marine Corps. Tie bars are to be worn equidistant between the 3rd and 4th button when in Service Uniform Alpha and Bravo.

    I like everything save the board.

    @ DAS, I have seen/read 3 different placements for differing reasons, standard placement between 3rd and 4th button, higher up to help your knot bow out, lastly i have read that the initial use was to keep your tie out of machinery, so the bar would be around the 5th or 6th button.  So I guess the answer as with most attire personal preference.

    Any ideas on who made the jacket?

    Lovely outfit. The tweed and glasses are so quintessentially Trad.

    Such a well tailored gent. Is the skateboard out of place? Debatable but the outfit is spot on and what a classic hairstyle. Nice one here FEC!

    This photo also reminds me of a long-standing question I’ve had about tie bars. How far up or down one’s tie should the tie bar be placed? When I’ve worn one, I’ve opted for lower (say, 1/3 of the way from the point), to keep the tie from flapping around, but it seems many men wear theirs higher.

    Great photo and a nice look.  Where is his belt?  Belt loops call for a belt.

    I like the lighter brown detailing at the cuff of his jacket.  I assume that is part of the suit, as the shirt is plaid.  Also, excellent example of bellows pockets on the suit. Very handy when you’re not carrying a bag of some sort.
