Thanks Jeff. I really appreciate your reply and I will make an appointment so that I can come in--I am likely buying a Ring Jacket or two--just not sure I can wait for MTO, but I look forward to seeing what you have.
Hello, I know the gentlemen from Ring Jacket are coming to town. I am wondering what the lead time generally is for their MTO sports jackets and will they be bringing some ready to wear jackets with them as well? I am certainly planning a visit. Thank you. DS
Really good of you to put this together, thank you. I will certainly try to attend.

I didn't really think about what i was going to wear it with at the time I bought it and I am not liking a lot of the things I am putting with it. I thought i would ask for your thoughts. I have a light blue and white shirt that I am thinking I will wear with it. What are your thoughts? Many thanks in advance for your help. DD

With that shirt, you might be able to wear a lightweight tie like a cotton knit, but it won't support a heavy silk tie. I think that one is more intended to be worn open collar and without a tie. wmarson, I think J's points here are the most important to consider, the collar and the weight of the tie. ...

Of course, maybe other peoples' time is more valuable than my own, but I need only five minutes to order more shirts from Jantzen, and I cannot imagine that MyTailor or Chan are more difficult. Even the...
