These guys are 6' 2-3" on average. These 'runway fit' clothes sometimes end up on yoox and so on, and normal people buy them and wonder why they don't (never) fit right.

I could believe that this is fully canvassed. This is clearly not a regular Blue Label suit as it has reverse pleat trousers. If those were forward pleats I might have bought it.

It depends on how much you want to spend. I'm always out looking for solid suits in my size, with two criteria: side vents and forward-pleated trousers. Which means I'm usually looking at Polo on eBay. I've been seeing some for around $500-600, which is too much for me to consider.

For reference a classic grenadine weave is called in Italian "Garza Grosse" this is what we use. there is one other classic weave called as I recall "Garza Fina" We do not currently use this second weave as it is quite loose more so than the Garza Grosse. There are weaves that are similar to the classic weaves woven outside of Italy and...

Thanks Grenadine ties are always finished in a triangle. Knit ties are square. Grenadine is a woven silk and is constructed just like any other tie of woven silk. Knit ties are knit silk and must be constructed differently. Whilst the two look similar, they are not related.

There are grenadines on eBay, you just didn't search hard enough. They...

Quote: Originally Posted by Reevolving Is there any way to get grenadine ties without spending $80+ ? It depends on the type of grenadine. This type of grenadine can't be found more cheaply than from Sam Hober for $80: This type can be found from Paul Winston and J Press for much less: You can find both types of grenadine ties on ebay, used and new, for a lot less.
