    Don't mind tassels on a pair of golf shoes, or even on a pair of suede driving shoes at the weekend, but on a pair of Brogues for work...
    On brogues is weird.

    But tassle loafers are a classic.

    So are Zoot suits, velvet dress slippers and wearing white tie around town in the evening. Tassle loafers scream "I'm a regular at Stringfellows" to me, they have that sense of expensive tackyness about them.

    Yup, I love the suede moccasins/loafers. I'm currently eyeing up a pair of blue suede Geiger Florios... I have a fair list of things to buy though, they're probably about 8th..

    Nice. Same problem, too many other things I need first. Might get some dark brown suede brogues though.

    Now for the big one: what sort of knot in your tie

    Tie? Clip-on obviously.

    Tying a tie takes between 10 and 30 sec. That time can be utilised much more efficiently through activities such: as polishing your gold-plated HP15C, arranging business-cards you've gleaned from various C-level execs in the alphabetical order, or working on your "blue steel" pose.

    I'm more of a HP12C type of guy.

    One look at its brushed plastic exterior and you think: "Damn, this thing is pro".

    It's just like a Graf von Faber-Castell pen - you'll never ever use it, instead you'll carry it like a badge of ballerness.

    Depends on the collar, the blade width, and the thickness of the lining. Of course.

    But usually half-windsor.

    Half-windsor for smaller/older ties, Pratt for normal thickness ones, four-in-hand for heavy knitted ties.

    I agree with this. Though I generally wouldn't buy a heavy knitted tie so rarely find myself in the situation of needing to tie a four-in-hand.

    Is there anything worse than people who get a heavy knitted, thick bladed tie, and proceed to tie a full windsor? (although I doubt it's actually any form of proper knot.) ******* estate agents.

    I'm the other way, I like buying thicker ties because I like the asymmetry of a four-in-hand.

    For those who work (or have interned etc) at banks, what type of bag (if any) do you bring into work?

    Preferably, if there is one you could recommend that doesn't cost an arm and a leg, that would be welcome...

    I'd take some of the suggestions and advice you'll get here with a wheelbarrow full of salt, to be honest.

    I bought a couple over the Christmas sale, if I remember correctly the deal was 2 suits for £300. They seem fair at sale prices but I think overpriced if bought at full whack. In my opinion, not too much difference between them and M&S really.
