The only reason I don't wear more double-sided ones is because I dread trying to...
Not sure why I am bothering to add to this but here goes: I have a couple of shirts made by Carl. They are the best looking and best fitting shirts that I own. At the same time, I'm not all that excited about going back to get my measurements tweaked for the next round of orders. I found Carl pretty dismissive of my comments when I told him what I liked and what I was looking for. Maybe he simply recognized me as a small-timer. Or maybe I'm just unaccustomed to the NY...
Not my style but clearly not a "monstrosity." I'm not sure anything from Paul Stuart would really qualify as a monstrosity, compared to the sorts of things offered elsewhere in men's fashion.

This may anger the purists, but I would go with side patch pockets but leave the handkerchief pocket standard welt. Having a handkerchief patch pocket can look great, but it looks extremely casual and draws a lot of attention to itself. If done poorly it can also look costumey, as though you've stumbled into the 1920s.

I've said this before, but will recommend it again. Your custom ties are beautiful and are definitely a bargain. However, it may be worth your while to make some non-custom ties in the popular colors and standard sizing (maroon grenadine in 3.75", for instance) and make them available for $10-15 less than your custom ties. As it is now, everyone pays custom price, even if the customer does not have any special requests and just wants a standard size tie.
