RL don't make any shoes, but do source from a wide variety of shoemakers. Edward Green > Ferregamo so RL > Ferregamo, but they also source/d from C&J, G&G etc. so it's hard to make the sweeping statement that one is better than the other due to RL having so many lines of varying quality.
Hober for sure, failing that, I've been happy with my ties from Kent Wang too although selection is far more limited in that respect.
So because BB does it on their clothes model it makes it OK to do it normally? It's hardly "groupthink", it was originally done by King Edward VII, and I do not believe he was a SF member.

Whilst I'm not keen on how it looks (jacket and trousers look too slim for me and the larger peak lapels makes it look unbalanced) it's nice to see the writeup and interesting to see bespoke where you know exactly what you want out of the experience.
He seems to be selling Thomas Mason 120s for $240 where other online MTM are doing it for $140-180. Website is nicely designed though, but I'll take a GQ recommendation with a pinch of salt.
