Looking good, estitchy. I don't remember seeing you in a white shirt. 

 

@Mr. Daniels: Yeap, +1 to that.

Would you believe it if I told you it's cotton?

 

Luxire described it as this:

VB 85860: Soft and medium weight, 9 oz weight, wool like feel. Can be worn formally

 

Definitely a wool like feel - I won't be wearing it in summer again.

 

And I had just got the tie. To be honest I didn't know it was a seasonal tie. What tie patterns should I look for for spring/summer? I'll get a few grenadines but my favorite ties are wool.

Challis is better suited for A/W, if for no other reason that it looks great paired with tweeds and cashmeres, or flannel suits. Not quite optimal for summer stuff, although it will probably look less out of place than a fuzzy cashmere tie. But I wouldn't do it.

 

As a summer tie I like silk knits better than grenadines; also linen, linen/silk blends, and cottons smile.gif

 

-----------------------------------------

 

Today's stuff: the only summer jacket I have available, since my two seersuckers are at the tailor. One is RTW and needs to have the sleeves shortened, and the other is my new MTM, which I'm quite disappointed with; for some reason it came with extremely low armholes (with subsequent extra-full sleeves), when it was clearly specified that they should have been made an inch and half higher than the block pattern. It looks like they are an inch and half lower instead. My tailor is going to try reducing them from the top but I'm not sure what will come out of it; probably something I won't be willing to pay for. They got armhole depth right on the previous commission so I have no idea what went wrong. In any case I'm done with MTM, I've had enough bad experiences with it.

 

This one below was my first MTM attempt, from last year (awfully low armholes as well, sigh)

^ nice one stitchy; you could also try the same look with a pale blue (or pale blue striped) shirt for a less stark look.

Thank you for the information :-) I'll have to order some more Hobers soon, for summer. I have some knits (quite a few, KW Bicolor, blue with green dots, brown with blue dots, burgundy) and should wear them more often. I have one Grenadine but it's 3" and looks out of place. I ordered the wrong size and don't think I can return it.

 

I've long decided all future ties will be 3.5". No more 2.5-2.75" crud. Knits can be 2.75".
