I was really displeased with the quality of their ties that I walked over to their store and had a chat with the owner. I took two Sam Hober ties to show him how a tie is supposed to stay in good condition. If you recall from the pictures that I had shown you, the Andrew's ties were coming off and wrinkling on its own. The owner insisted that all the ties, Europe or USA, come from the same factory and that they are the best quality. When I showed him Sam Hober, he started looking for a tag. He said this isn't made in Italy and it won't even last longer than my ties.lol8%5B1%5D.gif. Anyways, I told him I don't want the ties and just wanted to show them to him before I trashed it. He then offered a brand new tie as a courtesy. Very nice of him.

(Colours are darker in person)



Doodals, apologies I missed that conversation. I picked up this Andrew's tie on the bay recently and love it. Just saying... Maybe of a different vintage?

Yessir. Every time I see those lapels I want to buy it, but I already have a serviceable peacoat, and so many other wants ahead of the line.

The lapels really take it to the level beyond the next level.

The Andrew's ties offered on Ebay are usually older stuff from their shop in Milan. I can't comment on the US quality, but the Milanese ties are decent enough.

No matter what way you fasten the jacket half the buttons are simply decoration i would rather them be functional otherwise it just feels fake to me.

I feel the exact same way about belts.  I can't stand all those fake holes that are not being used at the time.  I'm looking for a belt with a buckle for each hole.

i wasn't aware those decoration buttons on a double breasted jacket allowed you to adjust the fit.

You've got a button hole for every button on that jacket.  Adjust as you see fit.

"In most modern double-breasted coats, one column of buttons is decorative, while the other functional."-- wikipedia

I think this is what fully functional buttons would look like:
