Hi Gents,   I am looking at 2 similar ties and interested in folks views on buying one or the other.  #31 is supposed to be stiff - but I bought the plaid POW last fall with the same warning - and I like it.   Pictures are below.   NAVY BLUE & POWDER BLUE HOUNDS TOOTH SILK TIE #31 BLACK & WHITE HOUNDS TOOTH SILK TIE #32           Navy Blue & Powder Blue Hounds Tooth Silk Tie #31           Black & White Hounds Tooth Silk Tie #32      
thanks Ac.   I will get them dry cleaned at the end of the season and put into plastic bags.
Hi Gents,   I bought some decent merino and lambs wool sweaters last fall.  I just took them off the shelf yesterday and they look pretty wrinkled.   How do folks care for and store their wool sweaters?     Maybe I should take them to be dry cleaned at the end of the season and boxed up?   Thanks
Thanks for the insight Gents.   Andrew Lock sounds interesting.  Anyone else have positive experience with him?   Is it realistic to get a well fitted, fully canvased MTM with good fabric for ~$1500, or is that asking too much?   Also anyone have a sense of the quality of such a MTM suit versus the basic Paul Stuart suits?  better? comparable?  worse?
Thanks for the insights.   I think I fit better into the Paul Stuart suits than Lauren, so I could get one of those for ~1300 then use a good tailor for ~300.  This could be a be a good option.   I wonder about the quality of the MTM suits, say Mr. Ned, versus Paul Stuart or Lauren?
Looking for a couple new suits.  Pretty standard stuff - solid charcoal, solid grey.  Modern cut but not skinny suit.   I want to find a good product for my price range (~$1500).  Suggestions?   Some names I have heard are Michael Andews, Greenfield, Mr. Ned, LS.....  I think Mr. Reeves now focuses on higher end work.    Apologies for bringing up the topic again but would love to hear about NYC tailors that SF member like.
Hi Gents,   I am interested in hearing views on the Hober Macclesfield #106.  Nice looking tie that should go well with navy blue suits.     A  bit too narrow uses to be in a top 8 list?      
Oxxford MTM suit?  No wonder it looks wonderful.   But how can you manage in a 3 piece suit in Atlanta in August?!    That suit seems designed for wonderful contrasts with dark ties - navy blue, midnight blue, black.....
