Here's an Altea one from Sierra Trading Post. They have some other Altea squares too that have some purple features. The one that comes up when you click on the link has some purple in it, but click on Color 75 for one that is predominantly purple. http://www.sierratradingpost.com/p/,...Silk_-_For_Men Here's another. I actually have the purple one from this collection, and it's a nice square: http://www.josbank.com/IWCatProductP...duct_Id=338548 I'm assuming...

Not much love for LP above! My experiences have been different, although I've never had a suit or jacket made up from virgin LP wool. I do, however, have a 100% cashmere sports jacket (by Canali) made of LP cashmere, and it feels the equal of the 100% cashmere in a Kiton jacket I have. It has worn well too, although it's true that I don't wear it all that frequently. I have a coat and a couple of bomber jackets made from the Loro Piana Storm System wool and am happy to...
Labelking's recent post on oversized watches (and I agree with his point about this) motivated me to ask a question that I've had for a long time. So many modern watches (and some older ones too) have complications that I can't imagine actually using. In addition, they sometimes have complicated ways of indicating simple facts. As a example of the latter, I've seen watches that give you the date by having one sub-dial indicate the month and another the day. To me this...
The Super 160s and 15.5 micron designations are simply two different metrics for indexing the fineness of the wool yarn. The English seem to have started the "Super" system, whereas the top Italian makers (like Kiton, for example) like to use the micron system. However, there are points of equivalence between the two systems. For example, Kiton's 14 micron wool is sometimes roughly equated to Super 180s (although, in fact, it's really closer to what we might call Super...
I've had functioning sleeve buttons put on several jackets in Vancouver--by (a) Tony Arletto and (b) Frank Fuscaldo at Minichiello's in North Van. In both cases, the work was well done. I'm sure other tailors could do this too. Joy, at Oakridge Tailors, could probably do this, as she's a pretty classically-trained tailor. BTW, keep in mind that the sleeve has to have the appropriate cut at the cuffs for this to be a routine job. Ozonemania, your observation about...

If you go this route, have him install...

I don't know whether this tan belt falls into your category of "beige," but that color--tan or sand--seems to be the hardest to find. http://www.classicwardrobe.co.uk/Pro...tegories/Belts Here are some from Jos. Banks. I have the sand-colored one, and can attest to its quality: http://www.josbank.com/IWCatProductP...duct_Id=311078
