    Great shoes. I love the way the length of the trousers accentuate the shoes.

    What I admire most is the way it all looks so effortless……quite exquisite!

    It’s great to see that DV is getting so much press and rapidly expanding.

    I just hope that doesnt conflict with their quality and designs.

    I live in southern California and had never heard of Domenico Vacca until I started to read this site.

    What do you guys think about the length of the tie?
    I te my ties most of the time with the tip of the tie just touching my belt (which is a lot higher than Mr. DV is wearing here).

    I have seen ties tied it a LOT shorter, say 5 inches from the belt. I’m not sure what to think about that. It looks dandy if all the other parts of the suit (incl. shoes) are done right. Otherwise I’m afraid it looks shabby like folks wearing a tie with a bigbelly. :)

    jay–Vintage ties?

    A half century or so ago, ties often were about ten inches shorter than they are today. Of course, most people, too, were shorter back in the ‘thrirties and ‘forties. Nevertheless, it was not uncommon to see well-dressed men whose ties ended closer to the sternum than the navel. (I believe the latter is considered the proper target today.)

    I believe those short ties were designed to be worn underneath vests. In those days, men exposed very little of their shirt and kept their vests closed almost permanently. So, there was no need for long ties.
