I like this. I think I agree that maybe plain ties are out as many already have these, but stripes are pretty polarising. No offence, but I think schoolboy. Something in printed silk with a pattern like you've suggested would be fantastic, although I think you'll find Jason picks based on sample sent by the manufacturer, designing your very own silk is tricky.
2) Agreed on flag front, it's way too MJ Bale, not to mention our flag is shit. 3) Solid black doesn't seem in the spirit of SF members.  I would support a green grenadine fina or even a green in the silk Jason posted and I am quite annoyed I missed out on fatso and see no reason not to do a repeat run using him
It is time for a new members tie.
Coxie, what is your verdict on shanghai tianzi?
Literally what I was going to say
Cheers Cox, great colour and buttons could easily be lived with or replaced, but not Kei cut I don't think. PS very conservative for you! Looks good.Do you mean Kei cut fxh? Structured shoulders on normal Canali cut don't suit me, and neither do completely unstructured shoulders on many other jackets. The Kei has just enough padding that it fits me perfectly across the shoulders and neck. Certainly can see what you are saying about barrel chest, the jacket is probably a...
Cheers JM, I'd spied the mr porter ones but neither of them quite float my boat, the first has peak lapels and the second has funny ribbing around the lapel, plus it's brighter than what I'm looking for. But I agree with you about them thinking customers like me a boring, I can think of some people who might be to blame for that... (Rhymes with "boxsackie").
Tried on a Canali Kei jacket recently and it fits me better than any off the rack jacket I've tried. Incredibly expensive, but I would probably by it in navy blue simply because it's a very long term piece and I can't find anything else like it. Problem is, I can't find it anywhere in a standard navy, I'm not even sure that they've ever made it! Complicated by the fact that Canali doesn't actually stock Kei in Australia, only importers like DJs have it. Why the heck...
Yah agreed but the things is in my experience many Italian shoes (I'm talking a bit more on the mainstream here) have much thinner soles. Not a function of their construction method, but makes them less attractive in my book and also less hardy.
I mean more the "italian style" of shoes rather than simply made in Italy. I think St Crispin which I linked in made in Italy. Most Italian shoes have flimsy thin soles that wear out quicker and in my opinion look worse.  The Italians make the best of many things, but I think the English make the best shoes.
