My best tie haul ever... Three recent visits to the same place yielded about 50 ties. Each was $2.50 - $7.50. Here are most of them: Approx 20 Brionis, 18 Kitons, 7 Charvets, and assorted Sulka, T&A, Drakes, Isaias, etc... Three of f the Kitons has small stains or pulls. Everything else pretty minty. Sorry for the lousy photos.. but beautiful pics starting to come up on @Brianpore's ebay site. AHS
Expecting any new Carminas in the Robert or Forest lasts? AHS
Hi, and sorry for not reponding earlier.I'm afraid I can't offer you any assistance. The suit I purchased in January is the Gray Herringbone Flannel model (wool / cashmere blend) that is no longer available. It's different than the one you are referencing currently on the HY site.Here are some close-up photos:I do love the suit.AHS
Thanks, Shawl Lapel. That's very helpful.Have you tried the Forrest last? If a 9.5 on the Simpson last is just too tight on the vamp and toe box, I'm wondering if a 9.5 Forrest might work well.AHS
Sorry for the cross post from the carmina sizing thread... But I need some help ASAP. I recently picked up a pair of Carminas 9.5 on the simpson last. The length is fine but -- after a few wears -- is just a bit too cramped in the toe box and a little tight across the vamp. I'm thinking about going up a 1/2 size and ordering the same shoe in a 10. I'm expecting a little more width but will they be too long? AHS
Help please. I recently picked up a beautiful pair of Carminas 9.5 on the simpson last.

Medium or medium / light weight.It's soft... but don't expect the silky feel you often find with 100% cashmere. The cloth has a slightly "rough" texture. FWIW, I am very happy with the jacket and it's a great value for the $$.AHS
The sportcoat colors are somewhere between the HY image and my earlier fit pic. Here are two quick photos from my iphone. The close up shot is pretty accurate.AHS
Agreed. My first pair of Carminas are waiting for me at work. Making me look forward to Monday morning.
Will be stopping by the trunk show. But unable to join you all for dinner. AHS
