8cm is a classic tie width. Stick with it if you like it. I prefer 3.25". Though 95% of people may not notice, you will, which is what matters.
I'm between an Epaulet mainline Small and Medium, and the Keystone Small fits me perfectly.
  You guys are killing it. Two fantastic looks. The envy of that Chambray 1911 is only just now abating.
@justinkapur you're right, of course, that it's best not to pull the knot through, and instead to untie the tie exactly in the reverse as it was tied.   Assuming @ovlov is untying properly, though, Vanda grenadines -- along with any other grenadine (esp finas and piccolas) that are unlined or lightly lined -- will retain some wrinkling around the knot area unless they're left hanging for several days, if not a week. It's just the nature of the silk, as it's a fine and...
 If this is still useful, I'd recommend trying Mission Cantina. I'm not usually one for hipster Mexican food, but this place is great. I also like Pok Pok Phat Thai. Cake Shop and Whiskey Ward for bars. New Kamigatas look terrific.

Still, Meurice has a reputation as a stain specialist.
[[SPOILER]]  Thanks Mike and Cormac McCarthy () for the tips on the watches. Will investigate repairs and put the Seiko on my list!  I agree with Mike's recommendation for sure, but for a relatively routine operation like tapering Walts I've found Stanton to be completely reasonable with wait times. (Then again, I have been a regular and loyal customer of theirs for years, and the EP guys think I might get some special treatment because of that.) Either way, you should be...
Off topic watch question for Mike and NYC guys: any recommendations for mechanical watch repair? I have an inexpensive mechanical watch that recently developed a clanking noise inside the housing when the watch is moved back and forth (Mike, this is the Orient watch you were looking at the other day). It still tells time as well as it ever has, though, but the noise is worrisome. Any recommendations for repair?
 Sizing sounds good; I'm a 32 Walt and Rivet, and take a 31 Wilshire. Great selection of items. The Pale Grey Hopsack Walt is hands down the best warm weather trouser I've ever worn, even better than linen.
