 Anyone who likes the rivet should try the Driggs. It's such a great shape that works with everything -- everything a rivet chino works with as well as most situations that would call for a more formal trouser. (@turkey_sandwich try the duck Driggs) I have cotton Driggs and it's one of my favorite pants. And the slightly higher rise, much discussed a few pages ago, is so comfortable. Also, backpacks are up. I've seen them in store. They're fantastic -- beautiful, not...
After my first purchase from Gerald and Diana from their initial collection, I was instantly persuaded that these were not only the best value ties on the market, but perhaps the best ties period. I've bought my ties over the past five years nearly exclusively from G&D. The tie below is one of the ties that started it all -- a woven brown "fancy wool." It's looks nearly new all these years later (though my photo, of course, leaves something to be desired). If the forum is...
 Ah thanks for letting me know. Great that you're affiliates now!
 Thanks, yes it's from this past fall. A really fantastic piece.
 You may need to spend $50 per suit on a cleaning. Suits don't need to be cleaned very often, though. A brush and hang gets most odor and detritus out of a suit. I'm in NYC and, on the recommendation of this thread, I take my suits to Meurice on the rare occasions they do need dry cleaning. I'm glad I've started to do so, as I feel they're in expert hands, particularly those with a 3-roll-2. Am considering experimenting with Rave Fabricare to see what all that raving is...

I'll definitely be by to try on that sample! Thanks, Mike.
Just saw the IG post from last week on the Individualized Artisan Collar: https://instagram.com/p/BBDibZ_xn8i/ Looks great, but what's so striking to me is the point length: 3 3/8" !! My beloved Gitman Sartorial Cutaway (V-CA) is plenty long, I thought, but is only 2 7/8". An extra half inch is a big difference with collar points, and I'm very curious to see the first Artisan Collar MTOs roll off the line. Mike, any plans to run stock shirts with the Artisan Collar?...
