Yes they do. Got mine from Muji at Yonge-Dundas.

Since we're touching on pants, anyone experienced with BR Nanotex Wool pants before? Apparently they're 100% wool shell with special lining that prevents stain (not sure how that works) and the online reviews are good so far.

Got my clothes brush there too.  They're located in the Atrium on Bay.  Basically a rectangular piece of wood with some animal hair bristles on one end.  For $200 are the Kent brushes supposed to be family heirlooms or something to pass down from generation to generation?

Had a great time at the Bruce Boyer book signing at Leatherfoot earlier in the summer, so would be down for attending another event there.   Got rather warm with the crowd of people in the store, but I don't think we'll have the same problem in October.   Yes, there was a great spread available for nibbling and drinking.

If Leatherfoot feels compelled to break out the Brut Imperial for our humble gathering? ..well, I guess I could live with that. wink.gif

Has anyone in this thread been to the TIFF gala screenings and red carpet lounge?

I just found out my employer would like me to go (with clients) and I don't know what the dress code is. Website seems to be of little help. Hope it's not black tie, 'cause I don't have a tux...

My firm has a similar gala screening client event at TIFF - the dress code is Business (suit and tie) as it's on a Wednesday after the work day.

Well. I just hit the motherlode!

Is there any interest here for private label (Made in Italy I think) grenadine ties in multiple colours?

- Navy
- Lighter navy
- Brown
- Silver
- Pink
- Red/wine

8cm width - 100% silk.

Price would be $49 CAD for one, or $95 for two.

That's basically $38US per tie, or $32US if you buy two.

They are from a high end store in Europe that doesn't ship to Canada.

Is there any other width option? 3.25' perhaps?

Nope. Same store also had Drake's grens, but they're 3' as well.

Look at the way people dress in the city. You'll stick out like a sore thumb if you show up in a tux. This is Toronto not Milan.

Made a correction. They're 8cm.

I'm interested in the grenadines... guys let's assume I have no good ties to work with and want to start from scratch. What are the best 2 to pick here?

I'm thinking navy as a staple since I have a few grey suits, and then for a second, could do silver for formal events, or brown for suit/tie events but not like weddings etc, or red but only if it's something toned down like a burgundy type color...

I'm feeling like navy and brown are day to day conservative, like for a job interview, and something like silver or wine/red/burgundy is flashy for a wedding. Those are my primary needs, and I do maybe one of each a year so I can pretty much scrap my pile of random ties and just have a few good ones. So I'm leaning towards navy and silver. Thoughts?

If you were picking 2, which ones would you suggest?

Also keep in mind they have two shades of blue: one is a navy, and the other is a lighter navy/dark blue.

Here's a close up of the red/wine:
