I can but dream Nick. Every time I give something to my tailor to alter it's a terrifying and exhilarating experience. His last attempt at shortening a working cuff resulted in him going rogue and giving me a highly visible, uneven pick stitch around the cuff end. Looked atrocious and I gave it to the charity shop immediately.

That doesn't sound good!

I think I'm quite lucky to have a decent local tailor - I've been tempted to commission something from him before he decides to retire, he's in his 60s now.

Any chaps in here in need of some Loake black brogues in 9.5?



Edit: also who wants dibs on this lovely wrinkle free Eton shirt (need to measure it properly but it is approximately 16" neck, regular sleeve length and feels like a regular fit Large kinda size)

I would have been interested in either jacket 1 or 2, but I found a brown patterned autumn /winter piece about a month ago. Thanks for posting though!

A few more ties that need to be cleared out of the closet if anyone is interested. A Berg & Berg brown grenadine, a recent grey Hermes and an amazing vintage Hermes geometric print.

Spurred on by David, I've started thinning out my tie rack. I've got a light blue/silver grenadine available if anyone's interested. Paul Stuart, made in England. Very lightly lined. Third photo is probably the best colour accuracy.

I've never seen flapped patch pockets before.

Nice Boglioli jacket. Shame it's a size too big. 

 

I've got patch pockets with flaps on a ZZegna "light" model. I'm pretty indifferent to it although I think if there was a gun to my head I would say no flap
