Just got this ad: 50% off pocket squares, scarves, & ties (except grenadines). Use code HALFSIES. http://theknottery.com/ Expires Friday, March 15, 2013, at noon. I have a couple. All are 2.5" or 3" ties. Not high-end, but very good deal for entry-level and everyday ties. There are a few seven-folds available for $20 with the deal. They've also restocked their grenadines (made in the USA).
Those photos of the first pair of BB aren't Strands--they're Sanfords (blucher).
Got mine very quickly. Wonderful shoe. No noticeable flaws. Recommend seller.
Just had the SA put two 1818 suits (solid grey Fitz and solid blue Fitz) to the side for tomorrow. Does anyone remember the complimentary tailoring that comes with 1818's?
Got my grey Fitz in the mail today. Just a wonderful staple suit. Third or fourth time buying from Steve and always a great experience.
I just bought my first suit with a hacking pocket (grey BB Madison model).

That said, I'd probably not wear that suit to court. But I like it very much; it makes the suit just slightly more novel.
Davis is the only place that will do Surgeon's cuffs. Shelton's is mediocre. Oak Hall is ok. They are the licensed distributor for Oxxford in the area. When it comes time for dry-cleaning, use Bensinger's.
Just got the HF suit in the mail from LC. Put on the jacket, and it went right back in the box for a return. The jacket is very slim, which will appeal to many here but doesn't play to my boxy physique. The fabric, however, was the deciding point. Very coarse, worse than the CK suits I used to have when I was in high school. My guess is that these are made specifically for LC, not for NM. I was in Bloomingdale's earlier this week, and the cloth was completely...
The hinted to it on their website that morning. FWIW, they had the exact same sale the next day. My guess is they'll have another 40% mark soon enough; they had a 50% deal a couple of times in the winter last year.
Bought one today.I mentioned this in an earlier post, but I emailed LC about the canvassing issue. After being bounced around a couple of times, I received an email from the LC customer care saying that the ones I had been looking at (the Two-Button Wool Suit, Navy, LCF12_N1MVD and the Two-Button Pleated Wool Suit, Gray LCF12_N1EVP) were both full canvassed.At the same time, these aren't mainline--they're Hickey Freeman for Nieman Marcus. NM tells HF what specs they...
