If you'd like to own just one thing from Runinacci it would have to be the victory square. Exquisite trimmings is having a restock soon. Having said that, £80 for a hanky is on the pricey side.

Pocket squares that I saw over the weekend at Furrygamo. Didn't even bother looking at the price tag.

Paging @DerekS.

What is your fave colorway for that square. I waffled a few times on it, never kopped tho.

They seem pretty garish, even for a pocket square.

Rudals, how did I do with your translation?

Very well. Judging by the final edit, it appears Mrs. Clags did most of the work. Very nice. :slayer:

Thank you for the interview and all your replies in that thread. I've been wanting to know more about them ever since discovering their tumblr/Instagram/website, and I suspect many others feel the same way. Stuff like that is what makes this forum so great. The Rudals thread has also become by far my favourite thread, so thank you all for making that possible.

Btw, I ordered the hat and I'll post a pic when it arrives. Let's see if I can pull it off.

I think the Noodles Thread has turned out to be a great helpful thread for a lot of people. 

I was just not ready to hang out in WAYWRN and my questions and comments annoyed the heck out of a lot of people before the Noodles Thread. 

I am very thankful to @Claghorn for creating this thread so that I can ask all the questions I want while saying all the dumb stuff that I say. 

 

 

By the way, I believe this is what gave birth to the Noodles Thread.

A $4,000 Isaia suit paired with that $200 Zegna tie (All returned for full refund "Thank the LAWD"). I knew not what I was doing. I am still learning though.

Shoulda kept that suit for nighttime jogging. Or doing some self-reflecting. Har har... ok, off to find a tall bridge.

I can never wait for the delivery these days, I'm down to the Fedex/UPS/DHL place as soon as I see it's cleared customs!

Agreed.  As a fellow massive bonce, it's difficult, and I can't say I have any "proper" hats these days.  But I toyed with a panama a few days ago, and it's a matter of proportion just like ties or lapels or buttoning points: I guess the thing is to just try a lot on and see what you like.  I had a felt fedora about twenty years ago that I loved - quite a statement as a very young man.  Kind of wish I'd kept it.

Apart from the price, I quite liked that suit.  But yes, I'm glad you now have a place you can concentrate your annoyance. :)

Uh...I hope there's nothing tall around you. 

 

Boy, that could have been one crazy and costly mistake that I would have had to live with. 

I guess I just didn't know much about suits so I just thought buying something expensive would get me there. I believe Isaia makes fine suits but that suit just was ill-fitting and had way too much sheen on it. It was...Super 150 or above. I am sure it is a great suit for someone out there, but not for me.

Yeah, I like a lot of what Isaia does but I probably wouldn't keep a Super 150's from any maker in my regular rotation. I don't think those types of suits are meant to be worn weekly - they probably wrinkle easier and break down faster due to the fineness of the cloth.

I was in my local Neiman Marcus the other day and some saw pretty killer Isaia windowpane SC's, but at equally killer prices. Same goes for some Kiton stuff that looked and felt amazing. Ain't nobody got time for that.

I've not gone back to the store ever since I ran out like a little girl after returning that Isaia suit because I feared they would change their mind. LOL

 

Yes, it was smooth like a <fill in the blank> but it just wrinkled very easily. I needed suits that I can wear on a weekly basis and that suit was perfectly the wrong choice, given the fabric type.

Super 150 fabric wrinkles less easily than coarser stuff---in fact, in my experience it hardly wrinkles at all. Whether it breaks down faster depends on what you subject it to, of course. But wearing it to the office on a regular basis should not be a problem.

Noodles, it's a British thing.  When I'm mean to you it means we're friends so I don't have to pretend to be polite.
