And on the positive side?

I wish GnD would apply their skills to making something more robust  tho.

 

yes, that sounds right. I have only one Vanda, which was a special treat for myself this spring (meant forgoing lots of coffee and hanging out in cafes to work). It's the H&S gunclub, really a beautiful tie. Unlined and six-fold. It is light and airy, and despite the wool fabric and pattern, feels like I can wear it into spring even summer. This is a pic when I first got it (was wearing BD and v-neck, no tie that day).

No doubt do I love my Vanda ties, but I find that they work better for the warm months since they are so incredibly lightweight. It just don't feel right to wear them with tweeds (which I occasionally do anyway, since I like the damns ties so much).

I don't doubt they make nice ties and that one can choose well. Probably helps to buy directly when you can hold the tie in your hands...I alas don't have that luxury. Still, I think the Drake's donegal could have come out better, a bit more attention to how it would knot.

You were the force behind the purchase of the trousers. Maybe the mid gray flannels should have worked better.

Very kind of you Pliny. Thank you.

Do those have the rubber sole? I'd like them for the spring and summer but the rubber turns me off.


They do--that they had rubber sealed the deal for me. I have an arbitrary desire to have parity amongst the rubber sole faction and the leather sole faction of my shoe closet. I think once I'm Stateside and driving, I'll cease buying rubber soled shoes with the exception of nice shoes meant for foul weather (I'd like some cordovan with Dainite at some point).

 

 

ON A MORE IMPORTANT NOTE.

 

Rudals is coming to Korea to get married. I'm taking him out on Sunday (because in Korea, every day is drinking day). If you'd like to buy him a drink, message me with your preferred beverage and I'll let you know my paypal. Any extra cash is pooled into a "Get Rudals to Drink Even More" fund. Rudals has to drink it, no matter how foul. Photo evidence of consumption will be provided and posted in the Noddles Good Natured Advice Thread.

TD I can't get enough of rust, but it's hard to find.  rust n lite green, sky blue and chocolate are awsm Spring combos + anything tastefully floral IMO

+1 on Rust, my discovery this past year (for myself).

 

Also I've noticed that on Conrad Wu ties as well. The blade isn't completely symmetrical, slightly off center I think. Thought I wouldn't worry about it as it is a bit "rakish" and since it is a shantung, part of the charm perhaps...interesting that you see it too. The Wu's knot very easily, and I plan on enjoying them this spring when the weather warms up.

<3 glad to be the impetus for the kop!

perhaps, but i think a suit would be optimal. either way, it certainly looks good.

Also, that's a cool tie, in an ugly tie sort of way, very TTO, but it matches the shirt (which is a great shade of pink, btw) and clashes with the pattern in the square.

I don't disagree about the jacket PB, in this case this one is probably nearing the end of its usefulness... or needs to be let out a bit. The two new suits I've bought recently are a better fit. I've just been working out too damn much! :)

Since we were talking about tie makers, here's the Vanda today

 

Better detail of the tie in the spoilered image in my last post

i love it.

Gents, Pliny mentioned light weight flannels in spring. I like the idea (a bit of texture in odd trousers versus worsteds), but flannels and spring (thinking 9oz weight or so)?
