Sorry to throw a stone into the quite pond of tie discussion, but is there anyone who's gotten bespoke from William Field? Are there pictures?
Thanks

Edit: I see J.Cogburn with his suit from him. But that's it.

I have a couple of friends who have gotten a suit from him and been very happy with it, but I have no pictures.

Hmmmmmm.....so 25 might be pushing it in terms of ties that are in heavy rotation. Looking through everything, it appears only 15 ties are in heavy rotation (4-5 times a year. I don't think any tie has gotten worn more than five times). One is on the way out (a green neat, worn 3-4 times last year, probably only 1-2 times in the upcoming year) and one is on the way in (a brown tie from Noodles, likely to get worn 4 times in the next year; already been worn once)


 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

Plum Thai shot (Hober)

 

Brown cotton (Zegna)

 

Light brown neat (Cappelli)

 

Olive Neat (Panta). I traded this for this tie a bottle of nice soju

 

Brown neat (Vanda)

 

Tan shantung (Conrad Wu)

 

Olive knit (Conrad Wu)

 

Brown fina (Hober)

 

Brown wool (Hober)

 

Green neat (Exquisite Trimmings)

 

Tobacco knit (Yount)

 

Green neat (Henry Carter). I suspect this will fall out of such heavy rotation though pretty shortly as I've recently acquired some similar neats

 

 

Navy knit (Yount)

 

Rust fina (Hober)

 

Brown pindot (Calabrese)

 

I really like this tie, so it gets worn regularly. Richard James

So... you guys are meeting up and having a tie circle?

 

 

interesting

 

also, Clags, are you required to dress like that for your teaching, or you just do it because you like it

Are you thinking of selling that green Henry Carter?

Developed the hobby when I needed to, now that I dress like this entirely out of choice with the odd exception now and then.

Can you provide a simple description of his style?

Don't know if this helps...

 

 

English Style

Mr. Field uses traditional English practice in the creation of his bespoke garments. This means that jackets will have a more trim cut, with a tapered waist and less padding in the shoulders. Jackets are fully canvased, including in the collar and chest, with handwork used to pad the collar with felt, roll the lapels, and sew the buttonholes.

Some pictures plus he gives a detailed description of his house style and how it compares to some other English makers.

Thx. ^That is quite interesting and not what I had expected.

@Claghorn

 

About that brown wool Hober, that's the black/camel herringbone? It's nice.

 

What blade width did you end up with (assuming a normal length say 58")? The knot is at the larger end of my range, but works for me (that's a FIH in the pic?).

 

I think that might be one of my winter ties next round. Debating Cappelli vs Hober for some wools.

FWIW Having a 'structured' shoulder does not necessarily mean having lots of shoulder padding.

It wouldn't be less padding compared to, for instance, most jackets from Naples. To my eye it's pretty classic Savile Row style. In between Edward Sexton and A&S, many of the famous SR houses look pretty similar. The Field coats I have seen look like what might come out of Poole or Gieves.

I think this will be of interest to the staple hunters in this thread.
