The new Burgundy wool challis Macclesfield....
With the latest shipment we also updated the colour of the burgundy grenadine in both grossa and fina to a darker more rich burgundy with a plum tone to it. Both are up in the shop now - http://www.henrycarter.com.au/shop/ties/grenadine/
For me, absolutely. I don't wear them in summer.But I also don't get wearing undershirts in summer either. To me they just stop air circulation and dense cotton soaks up moisture and stays wet. Much prefer to wear no undershirt and a looser fitting open weave linen/cotton that breathes and lets the breeze through.
They are but they aren't. They were never HY's "models" to begin with, the people that make them in Brooklyn, whose name escapes me at present make for HY, DC, Epaulet and Sid Mashburn among others.
Not recommended anymore. Cuts have changed, service non-existent and no international returns. These guys have come up a bit, made by the same maker as HY -http://www.dapperclassics.com/Shop/trousers/classic-fit
To keep your chest warm, obviously.
I think when most people think paisley, large scale gaudy jaquard weaves mostly come to mind which is the opposite of what this is. It's just nice and subtle with really good complementing colours. I'll start putting some fits together on to manny the mannequin of the new stock over the weekend to give everyone some ideas and natural light shots as well.
Yeah man, SF10 for 10% discount
I'm evil... lol
Hi Justin, The bourette is a slightly smaller knot than the shantungs do, but we've used a slightly thinner wool lining too to get the knot size around the same as a traditional grenadine. Shantung's are about as thick as you'll get knot wise but next spring I'm going to do a shantung/regular silk blend which will still retain the slubbiness of shantung but make a softer hand and smaller knot.
