Up for sale is a beautiful Polo Ralph Lauren suit, made in Italy by Corneliani in a moderate weight textured wool in a charcoal shadow glen plaid with a blue windowpane. This suit is gorgeous, and I'm only selling it because it just doesn't fit me in the shoulders. I've worn it four to five times, and it's in excellent condition with only slight signs of wear. The suit is fully canvassed and lined, 3-roll-2, with cut that tows the line between trim and classic. The pants...
 You sound like an EPNY medium to me.
@leftofthedial   Matt, it's tough to see you go! You've been a stalwart and a mensch for years at Epaulet, always working insanely hard on projects big and small, and bringing style and energy to the stores and the product lines. It's been great talking with you about everything from clothes to music, and grabbing drinks with customers and crew. All the best on your new endeavor! Enjoy Atlanta, and hope we'll all get to hang for your next NYC visit.
 You may have just convinced me. So the navy raw silk wouldn't look out of place with a wool-cashmere or Harris Tweed SC? Agreed that the grenadine is somewhat dressy, though honestly I just wear it anyway -- it's too irresistible. EDIT: Perhaps I should mention that I already own the navy donegal that @Gerry Nelson shows off wonderfully up the thread 
 lol A+. Do you have any pics of the navy raw silk in your back pocket, perchance? I'm completely on the fence about that tie. I'm wondering if it'll be as versatile/significantly different from my navy piccola grenadine, also from Vanda. Do you think it's warm-weather only?
 Terrific. Is that the Deep Red Raw Silk tie?
 Even if it didn't go in a dryer, the agitation and water temperature in a washing machine can exacerbate shrinkage. But even if you hand wash as gentle as can be, raw items will shrink to some degree. I'd talk to the retailer.
 You got bad info from the retailer. Any "raw" (i.e. unwashed) cotton item of any kind will shrink, especially in a washing machine, and, of course, most especially in a dryer. Denim nerds often hand wash raw denim to minimize shrinkage. I suppose the same might apply to a raw shirt.
 Love that it's called the Degraw. The neighborhood street theme is great. I hope you name the most badass jacket you ever make the Kane.
