No pics as latest shirt is currently being made. But here is a pic of a 12cm shirt cuff in the 14cm jacket cuff. So imagine 1cm less shirt cuff in this pic basically. This leads me to think I will tweak the jacket cuffs 1cm (and in any event my new suits will be made with a 13cm or so cuff, so slimmed down a bit)

Jap is an English abbreviation of the word "Japanese." Today it is generally regarded as an ethnic slur among Japanese minority populations in other countries, although English-speaking countries differ in the degree to which they consider the term offensive. In the United States, Japanese Americans have come to find the term controversial or offensive, even when used as an abbreviation. In the past, Jap was not considered primarily offensive; however, during and after the events of World War II, the term became derogatory.

Seriously? We already know you don't like the Japanese from your posts in the this thread in the past.

 

I was being very polite about you posting an ethnic slur and that's your response?

Jap is about as much an English abbreviation for Japanese as "spic" is for Hispanics.  We don't want these "abbreviations" used in this forum.  Knock it off...and that's not a suggestion.  Knock it off.

If someone posted the N word, the post would just be removed. The above post should be removed for the same reason. It's just offensive.

This instance was deserving of a ban...

So does anyone reach a point of critical mass with certain menswear items? I used to consider myself a "shoe guy", but I have not bought any pairs for the last year. Every time I see something that looks nice I always find that I have something similar enough in my current collection. I think I am starting to get the same way with blazers and sport coats too. I can't really think of anything that I simply must have. Most new items would fill obscure niche roles in my collection. I have not reached that point with ties yet though, and I have more than 100. Can you ever really have enough ties?

I think the answer is yes, but obviously it will vary individually, and even within individuals, by category. For example, I have 10 ties and feel like they're enough.

10 ties probably is enough for most people, but there is a difference between having enough and having all you want. One of the characteristics of hard core collecting, IMO, is that having enough is never enough for the people who do it. I could probably get by with 0 ties, but I simply don't want to.

I've made upgrades to some of my ties instead of expanding them. For example, I have a black knit from The Tie Bar, which was replaced by a black knit from Drakes; a navy pencil stripe from The Tie Bar, replaced by a navy grenadine from Kent Wang; etc.

hmm, well, I have another issue; I rarely wear ties, almost never, and I occasionally get a new one, when I spot an especially refined and high class design piece :))))
