My mid grey flannel is one of my favorite suits. I love the look and feel of the flannel.
I am more of a light blue man. 1 BB MTM broadcloth tennis collar with FC. 1 Mercer forward point. 1 Mercer OCBD
I fall into the camp of wearing shirts more than once except in the summer because of perspiration. I usually have my OCBDs washed at home since they only need minimal ironing. I have other shirst laundered at the cleaners. I just don't have the time, or ability, to iron them properly so that they look good.
Impressive tie collection and very artful knots. Well done.
I wear light blue shirt with grey trousers and brown shoes frequently and thinks it looks better than a white sirt.
The Strand does look better. I have PAs as well and do find them to look a bit stubby as well. Seeing them side by side with the Strand and the shorter cap helps illustrate the issue.
Looking good UC. Is that flannel?
I hope it has a bit less than the Douglas. I may consider the Cambridge when I order suit.
Interesting news. I noticed on the sketch that the point to point is 18.5 inches. Does this measurement stay constant or does it adjust as the size of the coat goes up and down?
I second the Hober recommendation. You can see the many fine examples on the Hober Apprecication thread.Shortening the length of your existing ties is a viable option. I have had good results with having my local tailor shorten the length of several ties but it was a bit costly.
