 , where do you get your long sleeve polo shirts?

I have long sleeve polos from Kent Wang, Sunspel, Brooks Brothers Black Fleece and Eidos Napoli.

My favorites are the ones from Eidos. The best collars of the lot.

Hmmm having issues finding that tie on EGC, but net so slow here which doesn't help.

Thoughts on this from shibumi?

For navy suits, absolutely.

I have two neats from him, both of which I like. However, in both, after untying there always appears to be a significant kink in the wool lining around the keeper which I then manually straighten out. I untie my ties properly, and these are the only ties with which I've had this experience.

There also appears to be some sort of issue with the way the silk was cut or perhaps fitted with the lining. When worn, the silk of both my neats ripples away from the wool lining.

So as is, I'll buy one on sale if it was a pattern I really like; otherwise, just grenadines from ET's house brand (which is a shame; he carries some great patterns)

I also have two ET neats and have had this exact experience.

Kind of good to hear. I thought I was crazy. Perhaps this is something Shaya should take up with his supplier (I'm guessing Shaya has enough ties that he rarely wears his own and perhaps hasn't noticed).

@cleav, I know you're close with the fellow. Do you have any of his house neats?

I've had one for quite a while and haven't had any issues with it. It's a great tie.

I have three grenadines from him without the issue. I'll see if it is possible to photograph the neats.

In the interest of education, why not with a grey suit? Is there a better alternative?

 Mostly preference.  I prefer burgundies and maroons to bright reds with grey suits, since the contrast with the suit is less dramatic.

Ah, OK. On my monitor it looks relatively dark, but I can see what you mean if it is indeed a bright red color.

This will be my first pair of wholecuts (also, one of my first two Carmina's simultaneously ordered) and I'd like some good-natured feedback. Will the suede make them casual enough they can be worn with an odd jacket look?

^ My feedback is that I generally can't be bothered clicking on URL links posted by people seeking advice.

 

However, if you also post a photo, I'm very glad to offer my opinion.

 

On this particular occasion, I decided to click on the link you provided. It's an unusual and very nice looking shoe. Probably quite versatile for both odd-jacket fits and possibly even a navy suit.

 

It took some 40 seconds for the link to load at this end, by the way. @Isolation posted three links to ties a couple of pages back. Does he really expect his fellow forumites to spend two minutes clicking on his links just so he can get some free advice?

 

I encourage anyone seeking good-natured advice here to post photos rather than URLs.

Thanks for the feedback! I hadn't considered links to be a bother since I'm usually in an area that loads pages like that in about three seconds, but I understand that isn't always the case for everyone. I'll save photos and upload them along with the query next time for the sake of convenience.
