A mirage, well put.... Yeah I know what you mean. It'd just be great if I could make it work as the thing sells for about $100, and my previous experience with the company is their quality and fit are excellent, but perhaps you're right.
It's a 13 ounce worsted, and yes it's the one in the picture (technically the third picture). Not exactly my first pick for a blazer/sports jacket. It's more a question of the fact that their 44long fits me perfectly and they already tend to have excellent value for money at full price, so at 70% off it becomes a steal. Ideally I'd go for something in blue or something with texture and checks, but the pricing just makes it so tempting that I'd like to get it if it can be...
Generally speaking I've been of the notion that blazers/sports jackets should never really be grey, that grey should be reserved for suits and odd trousers, with the exception being tweeds with some other colors mixed into the pattern. Today however I was watching To Catch a Thief, wherein Cary Grant wears (among many excellent outfits) a mid grey 3-button blazer with brass buttons which he pairs with a white shirt and light grey trousers. Up until now I'd never wear...
I don't have a faille, but I have a midnight blue in grenadine fina. It's an awesome color, but I have to say that what I like about it isn't that it's almost black, but rather how it looks when it's obviously not black. Indoors it looks black (though with a blue tint softening it a bit), but where it really shines I think is when you wear it outside in bright daylight, especially in summer. What's so cool about it is that you get a tie that kind of radiates a clear deep...
It's never entirely safe to relax, but it's easier to maintain discipline when you don't have an open order. I get into the mindset that the bigger I make the order the more I save on shipping on a cost per tie basis, so I start adding stuff because it'll be cheaper to add them now than to buy them on a separate order later etc. So one tie becomes three ties and I genuinely believe that I've saved money (lol). So you're right that it's never safe, but the hurdle is...
Alright guys, I took your advice and went with the first one. I crave the second one, but I fully realize how much more wearable the first one is(not to mention congruent with my style/complexion), so I'm pretty sure it's the right choice, but in the spirit of rebellion I'm having it monogrammed with hot-pinkAlso went with the brown version of the italian flower silk, and the black and white houndstooth.That's the trouble with hanging around this forum. I came to post a...
Somehow, I don't think that's a situation we need to worry too much about.
I can't say unequivocally that it's not a problem because I haven't worn mine long enough and hard enough yet to claim that it's stood the test of time with me. It could still happen, and if it did then it would be prematurely, but what I can say is that I haven't seen any kind of problem like that on any one of my ties.If I'm dealing with a loose pattern weave and my nails aren't in good condition, it's possible to catch a thread and pull the thread loose a bit, which...
Hmm... It's pretty much unanimous for the first one then it seems. I asked David before posting here and he picked the first one as well, so I guess the first one is universally more loved. I'm really liking the second one, but in terms of actually wearing it, brown print seems more wearable than white and red, and certainly a better match for my own color-scheme.So unless anyone wants to make a last ditch defense of the second, I guess I'm going with the first.This is...
So you don't disagree that it depends on the silk, or you don't disagree that I'm the tie-equivalent of John Nash stalking pigeons like a lunatic, or both?Either way, good to know there's a receptive audience Alright, so let's throw the third one out as it got no love (I'll edit the last post and remove it so we don't get any confusion). Between these two alternatives that are left, which do you prefer?
