I have mahogany for my handgrade chestnut and cognac for my benchgrade chestnut. They are two different colors when new, so I figured I'd keep it that way.
I'm thinking something significantly worse to establish a neglected figure (I can hardly call him a character).
Might I suggest a MTM shirt so you can both button the top button, but feel comfortable physically doing it.I have a thicker neck than my body size in standard shirtings. I had the choice of fitting in the body or the neck, so I went MTM and now everything fits and is comfortable.
Very nice slip-on makeups.
I also have the Belgian linen square. It's my only white square for non-black tie situations (I have a Drakes silk textured square for black tie). I use it once a week and just use the stuff and go method, so I can't speak to the tv-foldability. But, it's a very nice linen, a little stiffer than the others I have. I have other linen squares in different colors from other makers. Hober does a relatively tight hand rolling of the edges.
I'm very interested in following this thread. While last shape is something of personal fit and preference, the finishing of the different shoes I think can be applied across the various lines. I'm glad it's a handgrade C&J that's in the comparison. Which AS model is it? Exclusive or Handgrade? I'm sure I can just wait for the write up on that particular pair. Thanks for doing this.
The plum rough Thai silk in its first action. Everything is a bit light in this photo and not true to color. The tie is a bit shiny, so I decided to wear it on our first fall day here in DC. Was around 60 this morning when I left for work, so I put on a navy cashmere jacket. The tie works well with it, but I didn't like how it paired with smoother worsted fabrics.
They've cast a young lady as "the Innkeeper's Daughter."
Group shot- same tie as above that's been circulating this week grossa charcoal-silver and plum rough Thai silkcloseup of the rough fabricI can't believe they arrived in time for my trip next week- 5 business days order to delivery in Washington, DC.
My order, made Sunday, just arrived. I can't believe the quick turn around and am always pleased with the incredible quality and service from David. Pics to follow shortly.
