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)

They do have some very handsome pocket squares, wool silk blends, for about 50 dollars.

 

 

Some ties I had to stop myself from buying:

Can you elaborate on how they're related to Liverano?

post #11959 of 12606

Are they? They carry a lot of Liverano ties. I'll ask about it when I go back for my fitting in a few weeks.

What's the pricing like on their ties?
post #11961 of 12606

Those I think were ~140 USD. House ties made by Frui. They also carried some Drakes, Passagio Cravatte, and Liverano (~200). 

 

The dad/owner has the lowest voice I've ever heard come from a Korean.

Frui is a Korean start up tie maker. What I handled was superb. Unfortunately, Frui's website carries a rather limited stock compared to B&T.

@aportnoy, looks like you need to know Korean to order from them. I'd be happy to proxy, however.

I figured they are in some way; the silhouette is unmistakably Liverano / Florentine and, as you say, they carry their ties. I'm curious if there's a connection.
