Hi Gents,   Thanks for the info on Mismo.  Seems attractive at the right prices!
thanks PP.   Think I will get both the houndstooth and the rep ties next.  I will have a pretty good core Hober 6 then.   Grenadine Burgundy Grenadine Charcoal/Silver Grenadine midnight blue with pindots Prince of Wales +2 above.
rodaman,   Despos is Chris Despos - a high end bespoke tailor in Chicago.  He probably knows more about clothes and fitting than 99% of the folks here.  If he says it, I would believe it.
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...

nice jacket^^.   nice drop.   Where did you get the modern English cut in tweed?
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...
