Yeah sorry, never used/researched that brand, so I don't know who else carries it.

Go to the Kamakura store on Madison Ave. in Midtown. It's not far from the 5th Ave. Saks your wife will probably want to visit anyway.

The Missing Link is the best place in NYC for cufflinks. Lots of vintage links. It's best when Manny is there.

Where to buy a rust grenadine grossa (not fina) 9cm tie (must be 9cm+, one of the few things I am super picky about?  unable to locate in all the usual places.  Thanks,

@WillingToLearn - I've not used this seller and you would have to contact them re: width, but here's a rust grossa: http://www.noblecustom.com/shop/rust-grenadine-silk-tie

Interesting ^^

 

Clicking on the link and the second pic doesn't strike me as 'rust' at all. It just strikes me as Brown, even chocolate colour.

 

Maybe pics are not representative? Rust gren shouldn't be difficult to do but it seems impossible to find from the usual suspects. I have a rust neat/ copper neat though which i enjoy.

^ that's not rust.

Can't say that I've seen a rust swatch in grossa that matches the colour of the fina that most vendors carry.

Q: What is the general opinion on ticket pockets?

I know the history behind it but I think it draws unnecessary attention.

They are annoying but aren't anything that'll stop me from buying something RTW that fits. I wouldn't ever ask for them on something MTM or bespoke. I think for most people, it isn't something that bothers them.

So, today I discovered a new menswear shop here in Jakarta that finally sells some interesting brands instead of bling bling designer wear: Carmina, Drake's, LBM, Ring Jacket, Pantherella.

What's more, it's less than a 10 min. walk from our home. My wife is gonna hate me... :uhoh:

To SF regulars, it may be 50-50 in fav of and against ticket pockets. To a random person walking down the street, I think he/she will think "what the heck is that?"

The reason why I am talking about ticket pockets in the first place is that the Washington has all the features that I am looking for except one: ticket pockets.

At least it isn't a Neiman Marcus.
