Charvet makes lots of nice ties with black backgrounds. I bought this one recently: http://cgi.ebay.com/CHARVET-PARIS-SI...QQcmdZViewItem And there are many others from this seller and others.

My experience with Chan is, on the whole, positive. I've ordered 3 suits and a number of shirts from them. I just ordered some additional shirts and will probably order another suit on their next tour. As to the shirts, my first shirt fit perfectly and so has every subsequent shirt. Prices range from $101 to $127 and don't seem to have risen in the past year and a half. Fabrics are limited but fine. As to the suits, my experience is a bit more mixed. The first I...
Here's a link to a thread w/ pictures of my first Chan as it arrived. http://www.styleforum.net/showthread...han+reubencahn You can judge for yourself if the result would be acceptable to you without tweaking. I don't know if this is typical or not of Chan's first efforts. I think the suit would have been perfectly wearable after shortening of the pants. But it is much better with the other changes Patrick made at my request. I have ordered Chan's shirts...

I love Chan. I'm on my third Chan suit and will be ordering my fourth in November. That said, my first suit was less than satisfactory when it arrived from Chan. The jacket needed some padding removed and to be taken in. The pants legs needed narrowing. Both pants and sleeves needed to be shortened. The suit is now nearly perfect but was not when I received it. Of course, the alterations could have been done by a local tailor (perhaps excepting the shoulder padding)....

The U last requires one to have very hight arches. It is a pretty shoe in...
I have both the Belgrave and the Sandown (chukka boot) in the UK 11E. I think the Sandown with its completely plain toe looks better. Somehow, the Belgrave seems just a bit clunky (though it may be because my insteps are too high for an oxford). I also have a C&J Cleveland, a blucher on the elongated round-toed 350 last. To my eye, it looks fine. Like anything else, feet don't appear overly large or small without context. If you're 6'3" and don't wear particularly...
I just received my third and most recent Chan after a nearly four month wait. Each of my first two required alterations, the first substantial, the second less so. This meant an effective 7 to 8 months wait for suits for which I paid in full at the time of ordering. I was beginning to question whether to continue with Chan. However, this most recent delivery has confirmed me as a Chan customer--at least until my son completes high school, college, graduate school,...
