Maybe not a sweater I would typically wear with this jacket but i am home on break and was pairing things i threw in my bags as I was headed home lol.

This is an appealing, cheerful sweater.

I think your ties are very "business", you need more textured ones, like dupion silk, wool and madder. Your sportcoats and flannel suits would greatly benefit from them smile.gif

Thanks for you comments, I know the ties are kind of the same - I tend to stick to my comfort zone. I do own a fair number of wool ties but I find that I don't like them too much since the tend to get rather bulky. It's a pity because they are very nice!

As for madders I would love to get my hands on a few of those, but the best ones I have seen are from Drake's and I just can not live with their decision to mainly produce 8cm wide ties - I need 9cm or even 9.5 cm. I checked in at their store during a recent visit to London and they had a small range of longer/wider ties, but the selection they carried was rather small. Anyone know of another source for ancient madder ties that come in wider widths than 8 cm?

Help! Now I have got two collar pins. Where can I find shirts with pin collar?

In the US, on the low end of the quality scale, there are a selection of 10 shirts with eyelet collars at www.paulfredrick.com. Further up the shirt quality scale, a quick check of Brooks Bros. website revealed two shirts with eyelet collars - in plain white and blue, with double cuffs. (Search for "novelty collars", when looking for dress shirts.)

Hope that this is of some assistance. For the record, I've found a few on sale at Brooks in past seasons, though not with double cuffs.

You could try dropping a mail to Patrizio Cappelli. I think he's got madder ties, but they aren't listed on the site, at least not as a separate category. I suspect some ties in the "paisley" and "twill silk" lists are ancient madder, but not 100% sure.

 

Drakes sells some madders in longer length, those are 9 cm wide and I think a couple of them are very nice.

 

You could also try Sam Hober, though I don't really like their madder prints for ties (they're too large), but maybe you do smile.gif

Hi UprCrust.

Thanks! It looks interesting. I have asked them if they have the eyelet collar shirt with extra long sleeves.

Are you comfortable in your shoes? They look too narrow in the forefoot.

i just got sick of hearing about the gross neck hair, it distracted from the actual fit discussion. but im still too lazy to shave it more often. so i just blacked it out. i dont really like what it does to the pic, but i think its alright.
