@UrbanComposition had something to say about solid burgundy ties today...

post #17312 of 37396
@Claghorn following your tie recommendations may I ask you to recommend 4 suits and/or jackets from Howard Yount for me? Size 42 smile.gif thanks!

The trick with Yount is that returns are difficult. A better option might be @Kent Wang.

I have a Yount suit, and while I love it, I don't know if it would be right for your build.

You could get something like this:

http://www.kentwang.com/suits/nailhead-navy-jacket.html

And if it doesn't fit the way you want, you can return it and go the mtm route (the cost of the original jacket going towards the cost of mtm). You'd take pictures of the RTW jacket on you, as well as measurements (you can go to a local alterations tailor to get these more accurately). At that point, it'll be very easy tp acquire what you need.

Did you ever post pictures of your best fitting jacket? I don't recall.

I think Luxire has started copying jackets. Still, mtm with KW might be the best route.

I haven't posted my best fitting jacket yet - it's at the tailors having the sleeves altered - it's a Saint Andrews - this one:



I'll post a pic of that or something better if it arrives in the mail. In terms of good fits pretty much everything from Belvest, St Andrews, kiton, and Brioni fits really well with minor alterations only. Probably St Andrews is best of all.

Does anyone here collect or wear cufflinks? I've starting to like them more and more.. you can easily sink a lot of money by buying those things. My limit is $25, but that left about 25,000 results. :uhoh:

In terms of vintage, you aren't going to find anything much better than 50s / 60s commercial silvertone or goldtone stuff at that price. For new, forget it. Well actually, you might find some silk knots - which are worth having.

It would be helpful to know what you like - I.e. what sort of style, materials, period etc. you are lookinb for. I tend to favour mid-century Scandanavian sterling silver, although I do also have a few enamel art deco links too.

I've had a haircut today.

post #17318 of 37396
Just one? smile.gif
post #17319 of 37396

Yeah I might need another.

Kira, the person to talk to is @upr_crust.  He has a fairly large collection of modern and vintage cufflinks and wears them regularly on WAYWRN.

I have a pair of cufflinks I really like, but at present I have zero cufflink shirts. :/

I believe @sugarbutch is a fan too, if I'm not mistaken.

Huge fan. He has one type of shirt cuff: French.

Elio, do you ever rock a French cuff?  With your profile and wardrobe preferences, they would seem to fit your look.

I have one shirt with French cuffs, which was a mistake: I didn't pay attention when I bought it...
