what are folks thoughts on Mismo?  in terms of quality and styling?   The aviator could be a nice travel bag.
Quick note - David showed me his double brested Dormieul herringbone overcoat last week.  It is very nice.  Bespoke around $2500 I believe.     I have a similar Ovadia one which we compared (retails for ~1,500).  My is about 1 season old while David's is 3-4 seasons old.     What did I learn:   (1)  His wool has aged much better though he has worn his 3-4x more than I have.  Top notch fabrics last/wear better.  Much less piling. (2)  His looks newer because it has...
PP-   I love that English #20.  I tried to order it on the Hober website but looks like its long gone.  Its  navy blue and white?   What is your thoughts on this one?  Maybe a bit too much?   http://www.samhober.com/new-plaid-silk-ties/navy-blue-and-powder-blue-hounds-tooth-silk-tie-31.html   Which is your favorite grenadine stripe tie?  I looked back many pages but couldnt find the one folks here were raving about.   Finally,  in terms of chocolate grenadine, I...
PPanther - nice burgundy.     I feel obligated to notice that you have only 3 folds - I guess you are slumming with us common folk today.   I actually wore my burgundy promoteo grenadine (3 fold) for the first time today.  I got some complements.  Nice tie.   I will be at a conference in two weeks in Vegas for 4 days where I can wear all 4 of my Hobers.  Taking the dogs out, so to speak.    I have a 
nice jacket^^.   nice drop.   Where did you get the modern English cut in tweed?
Interesting posts on the rise.   I have the opposite problem - I need about a 9.5 inch rise so the current HY pants just dont work for me.     Maybe eventually HY can offer short, medium and high rise options?  Just what he wants to do - have to carry 3x the current pants inventory!   But I love his sweaters so I hope he does this as I would likely be a regular customer.
Ghurka appears to be having a 25%-40% sale on some stuff, but NOT all.  Some nice twill bags but not the core leather stuff...
Hi folks,   I ran into an interesting tweed messenger bag maker that folks may find interesting.  His brand is Thomas Tweed and he takes used tweed jackets and creates messenger bags and sells them on Etsy. Its a fun whimsical look.   A suit jacket doesnt provide that much material so the bags are basically laptop size.  I have emailed him and will see if he can make me a bit bigger bag - if he finds a decent use tweed overcoat to use.   Now your favorite tweed...
Hi Gents,   I am looking for a tweed overcoat - likely a bit more casual.   Any suggestions where one can get modern version of a nice warm tweed overcoat with some style?  Ovadia and Sons had a sweet one but I tried to wait until it went to a good sale price and now they are all gone.  Alas....   Thanks.
Pdsf, Thanks for the insightful info! Very helpful indeed. You could indeed be a bag consultant. I got the brown twill Filson briefcase for $170 with shipping from Brooks as a carryover for now. Then I will have time to carefully look for a decent deal on a leather on for the long term. I dont want to rush this decison and want to better learn whats available. I guess its time to read more of this thread! Thanks again. What are your views on JW Hulme?
