Hahaha.

 

Anyone have recommendations for tailors (on the lower range cost wise) in Rome? I plan to visit, and might want to take a look. Anything else sartorial or otherwise interesting worth looking at?

I thought you were going to be working for a tailor and were going to be getting some stuff through them? (Apologies if I missed some follow up post)

Yes I still am, but I thought I'd get a thing while in Rome.

I was hoping that Brooks Brothers would include ancient madder ties in their 3-for-$120 sale, but they didn't. However, there are a few potential wardrobe staples, such as solid-colored ties in about a dozen colors. My only solid-colored ties are knits, so I was thinking of picking up a few. Do you have any, and, if so, in what colors? I was considering navy blue and burgundy . . . any others I should look for?

A solid wool brown as a go to for me in the fall/winter. A tan wool tie perhaps isn't as versatile, but it gets plenty of wear by me. A deep forrest green wouldn't be a bad idea either.

I don't find silk greens too versatile (I do have a grenadine and a knit though), but in wool a forest green is excellent. I got one from Exquisite Trimmings that I found very usefull. Otherwise brown is just such a great color in any fabric. Linen, to Shantung, to Grenadine, to Wool, and in different shades. I found tan brown more useful in summer myself, since I think I tend to wear darker jackets in winter, and it's harder to pair a lighter neutral tie with those.

 

I like burgundy a lot too. Navy/Black is alright, of course, but I find myself drawn to brown the most for plain tie, I prefer navy/black for something with more texture (knit, grenadine, raw silk).

They look pretty cool; do you know their price range?

I don't patronize Lock & Co.

Well, neither do I, but you need something to go with your smoking jacket.
