What book uses FCKT as the reference number?

Something very similar is also used here, but provides no further information. That ebay link is good stuff.

I imagine that if anyone in the world (aside from Sator and tuttee) has dress boots, it's Butler.

Sorry Sir,
You may recall that when this ensemble was first shown, I was much criticised for wearing those loafers in the snow and I had to explain numerous times that I was attending an indoor event, when the opportunity for some shots arised, and it had started snowing in the meantime!

Is it in good taste to wear madder squares/ties outside of the Fall/Winter seasons? Or are they as seasonally restricted as linen ties are to Spring/Summer?

I have issues with heavy tweeds being too thick to properly cuff. Also if the trouser narrows too much at the bottom cuffing can be difficult and unsightly.

The advice I've received is that it ain't / they are, though I'd wear them in the parts of spring when I haven't brought out the "summer" clothes yet -- so through April.

Do people wear that sort of clothing in LA?

Madder squares and ties? They are not in the majority, no. But neither are closed-toed shoes.

En route to B&Tailor. Will at least pick some pocket squares. Maybe commission something. Mrs. C has left it to my discretion.

are their suits made in korea or in florence?
post #11955 of 13313
Korea. Two brothers (+ two others) run the floor, the father cuts and measures. I worked with the youngest son, Chang (the elder is responsible for their wonderful tumblr).

I am getting a mid blue wool linen blend jacket to start.

I also asked about the cost of a suit made from Fox flannel F/W13 as a few folks had asked about the cost and I figured it would serve as a good reference. $2,100 (errr...maybe 2,400? I can't recall. Didn't have coffee this morning and I've been off all day as a result)
