Two Gitman ties, and some more Scott Nichol socks.
Decisions about this AW. Margaret Howell merino rollneck OR Esk Geurnsey (except in navy camel hair, not black like the photo) Or, just get both... my knitwear shelves are getting full, though!
@ManofKent Kafka still has some Matthew waistcoats in their sale store if you are interested. @capnMURPHY2021 I have the Ben from last FW, and it's great. You should look to Scott & Charters for a cardigan like the one you linked. They're fairly reasonably priced. I'm regretting not getting one last year, but NMWA should be restocking. I just noticed that they are now selling accessories through their site.
It looks like AW14 was just posted today. My favorites are the Simon Guernsey, Mackenzie cardigan in flannel, and the Conrad Luxury shawl.

I still have the tag if you'd like it. $40 each, with free USPS first class shipping. Paypal only.
Well, it only took about a month to arrive from Germany, but my James crew finally showed up. It's another wonderful knit from Esk. The 70% extrafine merino/30%cashmere blend is luxurious. The fit is great as well, with just the right amount of slouch. One thing that struck me was how heavy gauge the knit is. I expect to get a lot of wear out of it this winter. If it's good enough for David Beckham, then it's good enough for me. Now, just waiting patiently for...
39" chest, and always a medium. Sometimes, they come up a little short on me, though.
Thanks, guys. It's Barney's Warehouse, so I doubt they'll give me any measurements. I'm not totally into the trousers, so it's ok. There is a fair amount of decent stuff up there if anyone is interested.
