Thanks for the reply. Any more info on the spots in Galway? Clothing stores? And yes, Aran islands!
Bumping an old thread. I'm headed to Ireland in a couple of weeks. Besides Donegal, what else in Ireland is of interest from a MC perspective. I'll be in Dublin for a few days, then off with no real itinerary.
Excellent!I agree with the thoughts on RLBL, if you like the shoulder then this is a good way to go, but as stated above, there are similar options at a better price. I second (or third, or fourth) Samuelsohn.This. Or any other lable for that matter (RLBL, Samuelsohn....)Agree, keep us posted and post pics of William's work.Since you are looking for that distictive English shoulder, I agree with those who receommed ruling out HF.

I am certainly not "high-end all the way"I do my shoppping "slumming" at Bannana republic (sale items) JCrew, Marshalls, TJ MAxx and Nordstrom Rack.I have a question, but didn't want to start a whole new thread.

I tried going through the checkout process and the coupon was applied to a pair of Aldens I had in my cart. Just FYI....
I thought khakis and chinos were more or less synonymous. Chinos are better?To answer OP, black and khaki (the color) do not look very good together, IMHO. Although, Thom Brown seems to pull it off with a khaki colored cotton suit, white shirt and black knit tie, but that's a very specific look.
