I just want to add, WAYWRN remains one of the most stupid acronyms on the internet. It's not even accurate.
Why didn't the forebears just think to call it Today's Outfit? Not arcane enough?

Moving on, what is the best source of pointed end black knit ties today? That actually maintains them in permanent stock?
I had to laugh when @Murlsquirl suggested buying knit ties made in China

LL would have been an even heavier weight cloth though, no?

Sozzi are some of the best. I don't care where The Knottery knits are made, they are a $35 wide pointed end tie that are pretty well made...good luck finding anything comparable. I don't even like knits all that much and don't wear them often, so they work for me.

Yes, I've got one of The Knottery's in brown.  As Murl said, it can't be beat at the price.

 

Perhaps it can't be beat, period, as I can't think off the top of my head of any other (non-custom) pointed knits.

 

Cheers,

Kent Wang, but The Knottery's price is still better.

I take that back. I just remembered that No Man Walks Alone carries Sozzi pointed knits.  About twice the price of The Knottery's, I believe.

I like KW's knits for black.

So which three clothing pieces do you wear? If you are including shoes then I'd be in trouble with my employer. rotflmao.gif

Fedora, OTC socks, Belgian loafers. Nothing else

Are you guys hiring?
post #28364 of 37396

Can any of these fabrics pass on as dress shirts or tucked-in casual shirts? Specially the light blue or lilac? 

 

post #28365 of 37396

Casual. or with SC. 

 

(texture is a pretty rough weave according to luxire)
