Thinking of sizing up for future Rota purchases. These don't feel too tight and certainly aren't restrictive, but I think they are borderline... thoughts? Crappy photos, I know, the angle is a little off.

They look too tight in the seat and the hips....pocket flaring and pulling across the rear.

Hmmm.. feared that might be the case. Is it something a decent tailor could tackle or should I sell?

You can bring them in and they can check the seam allowances.  If there is enough to let out, they might be able to make them work.

What are some good colors and patterns to start off a pocket square collection? I have a white linen one but would like to branch out into some with a little bit more character. 

 

The squares will be worn with 

1) Navy blue suit

2) Grey SC with faint blue windowpane

3) True blue cotton jacket

 

For shirts, assume that I will be wearing the usual suspects, solid white, solid blue, blue/white stripes and windowpane.

 

Tie collection that would usually be accompanying the squares:

 

I prefer to wear the navy grenadine, black knit, orange or brown wool.

I like hobgoblin, but British beer is the least favorite of any countries bar brews I've tried.

Pimms cups on the other hand...yes!

I'll take it blighty, ill take it.

Also hilarious was a bartender in shoreditch trying to explain dogfish head dna to us as an American ipa. I was like yes, but what is it? Guess he didn't know they had 50 different kinds...

Also i ordered whitefish as a snack. Didn't know what it was. Thought it was a small friedfish serving. It was fried anchovies!

If you are looking for silk patterned squares I would recommend a burgundy paisley, a navy paisley, probably a forrest green with some kind of sparse pattern. Cream silk is always a nice go to.

Oh, re pasta: i think most to all Italian food I've had has been bland. I did grow up in India.... I'm more drawn to Thai food, Ethiopian food, etc. So yeah, i guess if youre weaned off breast milk and put on a diet of chillies then your tastes evolve differently.

Indian food is my favorite food of all time. I grew up on Sabjis, samosas, and chapatis.

If i have limited time left in London and want to try on shoes etc, is liberty the best bet?

I can try walking around savile row and the area that monkeyface recommended, but i doubt i can spend much time in any store in that area since we have to be back in Camden by 1pm.

RTC, I assume you haven't neglected Brick Lane as part of your London tourism circuit.

 

I had some wonderful curries there in 1991.

I'd avoid Brick Lane these days if I were you. Tayyabs is a better option.

No, but Jermyn Street is. Liberty's is a jack of all trades and master of none when it comes to menswear, I wouldn't bother if I were you.

RTC,

 

If you do want a busman's holiday and to eat quality Indian food while in London, check out the vegetarian restaurants on Drummond Street, next to Euston Station.  There was one called Chutney's I remember years ago, but there are several there.

 

Otherwise, spread your wings a bit: the corner of Queensway and Bishop's Bridge Road (take the tube to Bayswater and it's just north of Whiteley's shopping centre), there is a fabulous family-owned restaurant called Tamara Thai.  If you're a meat eater, "Hafez" on Hereford Road nearby is the best Iranian restaurant in London - small, quirky and again a family business.  

 

As for shoes, yeah, go to Jermyn Street to visit some famous makers, add G&G on Savile Row (even if you don't buy anything, know your size for when discounts come!), and I suggest looking up Justin Fitzpatrick aka "The Shoe Snob" for a similar aesthetic at a far more accessible price.  And he's a nice guy.  And 'Murrican.
