High in the low 60s Panta Kent Wang Spier & Mackay Meermin
They aren't actually unlined. They're partially lined. There probably isn't any good reason to avoid blends provided the tie looks nice, but I avoid them anyway. If you don't like sheen, I'd also avoid mohair.
Not necessarily. I spent 2-3 hours trying to figure out why a structural equation model wasn't converging. (Answer: I had fucked up)
What is the issue with it being made by South Koreans, exactly? It isn't farmed out to some factory; everything is in house and many of the men doing the sewing have been working with Park for over two decades. South Korea isn't a third world country any more; it's certainly more advanced than Italy and has a higher cost of living. --- The cutter has always done my measurements and fittings (JY Park, not his younger son, who also cuts). And I think it's now pretty common...
By birth. It wasn't a very good joke.
I became a citizen in late 1985. My wife is going for citizenship next year at some point.
@Darkside You get your Difou tie yet?
Light brown stripes.
7/10 rules out BR, UNIQLO as well as a lot of J Crew and RL these days. Howard Yount on sale is excellent: http://www.howardyount.com/collections/pants/products/washed-cotton-canvas-pants-tan http://www.howardyount.com/collections/pants/products/italian-cotton-twill-pants-tan http://www.howardyount.com/collections/pants/products/cotton-drill-pants-tan Kent Wang has some very nice ones, but they're 175$
Just worth noting, Henry Carter, a former vendor on SF and all around good guy, is closing up shop (promotion in his real job). Right now he's selling ties, buy 2 get 1 free (you need to mention the free tie in the note during checkout). Prices are in AUD and come out to 55-60 USD each, which is a fantastic bargain for HC ties.
