The diamond weaves are seriously the most under-appreciated on the website. I have 3 of them now and they are just awesome.

With the post office, experiences vary and of course it'll depend on your country's postal carrier, but for me, I find they frequently don't charge tax/duty.

Thanks for the advice Adam. Sorely tempted smile.gif

+1. I still love the grenadines but the diamond weaves are a close second (though the new twill madders may give them a run for their money).

steffen: oh, and the other advantage of the post office is even if they charge you tax/duty, they at least don't charge you a fee for the privilege of paying tax/duty like the courier firms do! At least, none of the post offices I've used do.

It is either the english plaid #9 or #10 but I don't see it as available on David's website.  You may want to check with him on his re-stocking plans.

I noticed that Hober offers 2 different white linen pocket squares, a Belgian, and a Carlo Riva model, the latter is a little bit more expensive than the other. Is there a noticeable difference between the two? And would someone recommend one over the other? Thanks in advance!

I've the Belgian and it's perfectly fine as a white linen PS.
