and also, though not often, without a jacket.

Assistance with regards to socks - preferrably EU as i seldom go to the States these days. More specifically 'patterned, properly sized' wool socks (ideally 100% wool or as close to as possible - nothing less than 90-odd percent). I can get the above composition easily but all in patterned cotton, wool solids but not what i want.

 

 

Where to Procure?

But with less of a collar spread, he has to accessorise a three piece.

I am aware of them but they don't meet my criteria. Maybe i should have been clearer, i meant 'dress socks'. The only non-solids that are patterned with the requisite wool content are all thick-gauge snowboot-esque socks.

 

Nonetheless, thanks for the recommendation.

You're welcome @MrTRC, and my mistake.  Yes, for wool they're good on solids, but their patterned socks are generally cotton.

 

Here's a good selection from a US retailer, if you can live with only 80% wool.  I have one pair of argylls from them from years ago (Marciolani); lasted well.

I do all the time. But I don't usually dress as formal as most of people here.

I was able to go get fitted in their showroom in NYC and see a lot of the fabrics in person. This gave me a good jumping point in terms of finding my size.

I have a few Kamakura shirts but I have to get the sleeves shortened on every single one, so that puts me in PC territory in terms of pricing.

I fit in Brooks Brothers Regent Fit but I wanted more collar options and beyond their solids, I don't like many of their patterns. Their fit also just fairly boxy.

Luxire is the other popular alternative around here, but it seems like a huge process to dial in your fit. I also don't have enough technical knowledge to to specify exactly what I want, and I don't have the patience to make repeated expensive mistakes.

@Darkside it would be very helpful to see how they fit on you in pictures and knowing what size you bought. I didn't know what brand this was at first but after googling it I realised I've had seen many pictures from their collections in many tumblrs or blogs that I had liked a lot. Do you know where do they ship from?? EU, USA? 

post #29969 of 37405

Heard good things about Viccel but do they carry 'patterned wool socks'?

post #29970 of 37405
Three recent fits. Happy with all.
