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.
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.

Enjoy, whoever does make it.
I went to the trunk show today. What a treasure trove! For those of you that might have visited Mr. Daniels' site (shopthefinest.com) and hesitated because you couldn't be sure what the merchandise would be like, let me tell...
Thanks for the responses gents. I actually wore it to work today with cotton cream trousers and have gotten lots of compliments so I guess we all made the right call. You're right that it is not a staple, but a fun twist on a navy blazer. DD

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.

wmarson, I think J's points here are the most important to consider, the collar and the weight of the tie. ...
