Hi Guys - I am attending a wedding as a guest in December in St. Louis. It is a formal wedding, with the reception at one of the nicest hotels in the city. I will wear a dark grey suit from the Dormeuil Amadeus line, white shirt, black shoes and black belt. My question is about the tie and PS. I know that it shouldn't be too flashy, but I have no experience here, and I think the silver/black plaid doesnt' really look that great on me. Would this be an acceptable...
Hi Guys -   So, I've decided to take the plunge and order a suit from Mahiras made from Dormeuil Charcoal Gray. It was quite pricey to me, but hopefully well worth it. I'll let you know how it goes. :)
Hi All -   I have am hunting for a travel size cashmere brush. I have the standard size Kent cashmere brush, but am wondering if anyone knows of a travel size brush suitable for cashmere? I have the travel size brush for wool and suits from Kent, but am concerned it may be too stiff for the delicate cashmere. Any thoughts?

I don't know that Manu Mahira has retired. I've been corresponding with his company to make arrangements for a measuring at the Sheraton this week. Perhaps he is only semi-retired?
I just placed my first order for three belts with Equus this week - Baker's Scott, Baker's Oak Brown, and Baker's Au Nut. I cannot wait. I'm contemplating the hunter green but will hold off until I see a sample with my first order - I have an old pair of Dsquared loafers in patent emerald leather that might pair well with the hunter green. Dawn and Charlie are the best to deal with - I've enjoyed every exchange we've had. And Charlie is extremely knowledgeable about the...
Anyone know where I can find a high quality, well-made full-grain leather belt in a gray? I've been looking, and looking. Ideally something in line with the quality of Equus.
Oh, and welcome to the other "new" folks.
Hi all -   I'm Tyler from Seattle (male, 30, single). Just joined the forum, and have been reading information as I go along. I spent much of my youth collecting fashion labels that I later came to find out were mostly made in China, and only sometimes from quality materials. I love over-constructed (I'm almost sure that's not a word) stuff made to outlast me, especially clothing and accessories, that bring high value for the money. I try to balance spending what I feel...
