Thread Starter 
Since this five year old thread popped up this morning I thought I would revisit it. Not much has changed except a few things have been replaced.

1) Blue Blazer - Still in use, wore it yesterday. But have also added an alternate dark navy Donegal tweed made by Ring Jacket through Khaki's of Carmel's custom program. It give a blue blazer look but 'different"

2) White OCBD - Been wearing BB Black Fleece which are soon to be replaced by NMWA custom ordered G. Inglese shirts.

3) Blue end on end custom from My Tailor- I have several and will be ordering more soon. So much more interesting visually than blue oxford cloth this is my blue shirt staple. Joe makes a great spread collar too!

4) Grey Flannels - Salvatore never came through on my last order (surprise, surprise!) so I switched to the Rota single pleat flannel from NMWA at a fraction of the cost and every bit as comfortable. Best of all, when I order from NMWA I actually get what I order smile.gif

5) Levis- Still rotating between Levis LVC 501 1947 and the 1962 551 ZXX. Classics.

6) White linen pocket square - Of course! I just picked up two more in NYC that were both on the smaller side to fit with less bulk in my Italian and Japanese breast pockets. US and British jackets seem to have a large chest pocket and can take a larger pocket square.

7) Croc belt- The RL belt is no more and I found a beautiful Hornback Alligator belt by W. Kleinberg at Khaki's of Carmel. It's taupe color works with almost anything except perhaps black shoes. Khakis can custom order almost any exotic skin and color. (I'm thinking about a deep green for my next order)

8) Silk Knit Tie - The Barbera knit is no more. But, silk knits are still a favorite essential.

9) Cashmere navy crew neck- This ten year old navy Borrelli still looks great and is in regular rotation. I've never found a cashmere woven so well.

10) Suede Cap Toe C&J - Still wear these but not so often. This summer I picked up C&J suede tassle loafer and always get compliments. Hard to pick between these and my Edward Green tan Sandringhams.

I was afraid to Google it in case it was a SF euphemism for something distasteful ...

Personally I welcome the bump of this excellent thread, primarily for posts of GusW, PatrickBOOTH and unbelragazzo.  Some splendid suggestions, in very different ways, for 10 essentials.
