Yeah, Aaron is the main contact for MTM anyway

Looking closely at that KW Nacy SC and I just saw three buttons as opposed to two on the SuSu
post #33873 of 37396
It's MTM - you can get one button if you want. Or two. Or three. . . .

I think nailhead is considered a suiting pattern.

Are cavalry twill pants really thick? Should they only be used in the winter/fall?

Cavalry twill is a robust and tight weave: I'm wearing some pants in a 600gram/20 oz cavalry twill right now. I wouldn't wear them in high summer, but since cavalry twill is generally given a smooth finish, it doesn't wear particularly hot. Much less than flannels or tweeds. Some have reported wearing suits of 20 oz cavalry twill in late spring and early autumn and feeling fine, though the suit's definitely not light and breezy. Search around the clothing fora for posts by user Svenn: IIRC, he has such a suit, and posted photos and experience of it.

The drape and body of cavalry twill has to be seen to be believed.

Why get OTR when MTM is the same price?

Because mtm is a few hundred more, not the same price

$120 more, but you're correct. it looks like he's expanded his RTW collection.

I much prefer the knot I have on the one Vanda tie I have comapred to the Hober Grossa Grenadines. Should I change a specific construction, is it the nature of rough silk vs grenadine grossa, or a Vanda vs Hober interlining construction thing? The hober is good, but the knot feels a bit too clunky to me, whereas the vanda has, hmm, more dimensionality as they say? idk.

 

I WANT THESE:

Vanda makes great ties in beautiful and unique fabrics, and now that they offer longer length (which wasn't available a year ago and which very much appeals to a tall guy like me), i can't see any reason not to put them at or near the top of the list.  On the taupe, I'd just be careful, there is some grey in there and I have learned that items that aren't one true color, that tend to bleed into other colors or neutrals (grey) can be more challenging to pair than one might initially think. 

post #33883 of 37396
Vanda is my favorite. If there are two things that can be improved is the thickness of the fabric used and the speed of production.

I might order from them next, but I just ordered 6 from hober, so maybe another time. I do really like the one brown rough silk I got off an SFer here though.

post #33885 of 37396
I want to start adding new ties like this. Something that looks... young?
