@gdl203  @Newcomer 

 

That Sozzi is great, but I think it's sold out? So more curious about the others that remain. The dotted's are nice too.

post #24049 of 37396

Theyre both on MTO. and Yes, that is a suit.

post #24050 of 37396

You should post more often on the damn WAYWRN site!

Would be happy to see them. Which ones?





2nd one might not have been on the list above, but great summer tie.

I'd rather not have the ones i want go out of stock.


Yes, it's a danger. But people in this thread already know what's up (I've been through the ties many times already at NMWA as I'm sure others have as well).

Just to clarify:  this ^ is not a suit.  It's a sport coat

In addition to those at NMWA, Wang, Yount, and I think Wu carry pointed knits. I have pointed knits from all four places.

I'm generally not a fan of flat end knits (though have a few from Carter).

Silk knits are even more S/S than shantung and linen. Though all three are amazing (and I'll probably wear all three well through F/W if the color is right

Which do you prefer of the ones that you have and are still available?

 

I would prefer knits that are 3in in width at the blade. A little narrower is fine, given the casual vibe. The dotted knits that Greg posted are nice, airy and crunch looking. Wish they were pointed at the end tho.

Silk Knit Flat Weave Tie - Navy

Yount, on sale for 55, 3in, but not the traditional knit.

 

All of Wang's are 2.75:

Knit navy with white dots

Knit dark green

 

I don't have any from the Knottery, but Murls does, and he seems to like them. 3.25

Sozzi from NMWA:

Hmm...they're a lot harder to find now than they were a few years ago. Yount used to carry dozens. And Conrad Wu carried a few when he first started. Both Wu and Shibumi have some really nice ones that are flat ended, as does NMWA of course.

I have Yount and Knottery pointed knits. No substantive quality differences, both very nice.

Do Americans hate buttoning their jackets? Is this a cultural thing? I feel so awkward being the only (or just a few) dudes who button their suits. 

post #24059 of 37396

Depends on what you mean by cultural. If laziness is cultural then yes, yes it is.

It's one freaking button!
