To me it looks like they are doing more spalla camicia shoulders these days, veering away from the slightly more structured, Florentine style of last year. I like both.

Here's an obscure question. What's the best cloth type to use as an overlay for pressing wool-based garments?

 

I'm assuming some type of cotton...I usually use a pillowcase, but this is a double layer. I'd like to walk into a fabric shop and just grab a small length of something that's ideal.

I use a linen tea-towel that I slightly dampen first. Seems to work fine.

Smart man, I was going to strongly endorse archis post.

Can I get an opinion on this ensemble please? My concern is that the shirt might be too CBD - thoughts? If so, what's a better alternative?

Trousers are white wool! And sorry for the fish-eye photo - a better lens should be arriving soon.




Tie: Kent Wang
Pocket Square: Drakes
Shirt: Liverano micro-gingham
Jacket: Tom Ford
Trousers: Ralph Lauren
Shoes: Crocket and Jones

I just use a white linen pocket square, works well.

I've had my eye on that KW tie for a while. I think you just sold it to me.

I use oversized spread collars exclusively, so I see no issue. Not a fan of the pants with the rest of the outfit. Imagine them as mocha brown. Would go brilliantly with the tie and square.

Long time lurker, but this is actually my jacket, part of a suit, that I commissioned over the holidays from BnT in Seoul. Just came in last week - really happy with it. It will need a few tweaks for the next commission, but it was a great experience overall. Highly recommended.

You're a lucky man. Was this done through incontro in Sydney by any chance?

No, I was in Seoul so worked directly with the team and master tailor there.

Thanks guys.

The dad is unbelievably friendly. Were you able to speak in Korean with them?
