Do you have a preference between the two shirts. That is a gutsy pink tie, my friend. I think it came up when Monkeyface was debating on the pink drake's cashmere...you sold it didn't you? Wonder if he ever picked it up.
The olive grossa is nice...still saving up for a grenadine from Hober...will take a while confused.gif .

my pleasure!

hard to say i have a preference as they really serve me better in different settings. the darker smaller check is really a much dressier shirt and is well served with suits or SCs and ties, while the lighter larger check is usually used as a more casual shirt, with a sweater or SC no tie, or by itself. i try and make sure all my more casual shirts are BD to give them more versatility in wearing them without a tie. i lament all my non tie shirts that are not BD.

i think the lighter larger check is a prettier shirt, but the other is better for things more formal.

and yup, that tie is the ish and i miss it dearly. not sure who landed it when spoo sold it for me.

get the hober!!!! i wear mine often.

Anyone (but JRD) know of a good YouTube video that shows how to pack a suit to minimize the damage of wrinkles during a 15 hour flight?!

I believe I will have to wear it as soon as I land to "officially" propose then at the wedding. Same suit but different shirt and tie.

My mentor Clag is pushing me to move forward with shoes upgrades.

I am all in on C&Js. I know Uncle Cleav has graciously offered to help. But I think it is best that I get them when I visit NYC. 

Here are a few that should be no brainers.

push one shoulder inside out and fold that shoulder into the other, then fold jacket in half. hang pants upside down holding the cuffs and pinch the creases then fold pants in half, and then again. wrap it all up in a dry cleaners plastic. pad it with clothing on top and on bottom.

good to go.

and thats a nice shoe.

Thanks @in stitches 

I think the band/s I will buy here. Did I get the link?

I think I am going to propose dressed exactly like this. 

Then take the same suit and wear this at the wedding.

On your C & J comment I'm happy to roll with you. At least you know the offer is there. You may want to look at the recent discussion on the C & J thread where the customer service at the NY store has been questioned. With a couple of exceptions I hasten to add. More importantly the value for money, and indeed quality of service, has been had with orders placed from Murrica to the Jermyn Street store. It's all there so please take a look.

Assistance required, if you have the time?

I have these -




I tried these today, they are being saved for me





Are they too similar?

Plainly not to the discerning eye but is this too close an acquisition to put into a rota, just because a) I love shoes and b) I love shoes?


Thanks in advance

Well, my two cents. If you could do it, i.e. have two double monks that are different enough to the discerning eye, then why not? But of course, resources are limited for most of us, and on those grounds, I'd ask why not get the second one in a different color, i.e. not black, if one gets them at all? You prefer the second, I am guessing?

 

As double monks go, I like the second more. More of a backwards "swoop" in the strap is nice, different, and for me more elegant (I'd say the same for single monk straps). Are those C&Js?

Cleav - I don't see enough major differences to justify not investing that money elsewhere.

Just one man's opinion.

Tweeds, I have the Edward Greens, top. The second are J Lobb . I have two more DMs in dark brown and Golf grain C & J Lowndes

@TM79 and I suppose if there were significant differences I would have kopped and therefore not be asking this question so you're quite right. However, is it ever as simple as that...

Well you have a lovely collection. The JL's are really nice. Is there a chestnut or British tan version (thinking of spring)? Not your color?

Thoughts about this pattern for a tie?

 

I like the block stripe and the colors are darker and more matte irl: navy and chocolate. Might have photographed the wrong side now that I look at it, but you get the point.
