I don't think I want to spend more than $200 and English made is a preference, but would go for American, Italian, etc.

Would prefer a sleeker last (not as sleek as C&J 348, but sleeker than Allen Edmonds/Alden) and looking to have it in hand before mid march for a black tie wedding.


Sanders&Sanders has one, but I have no idea how the last fits.

Loake also has one, but is Indian made. Claridge last is fairly sleek. I also have no idea how this last fits.

Additionally, Meermin has one and I think would be your best bet.

are knit silk tie suited for fall/winter only? Or they can be worn in summer too?

I was under the impression that silk knits can be worn year round. Other than navy, black (surprisingly) and burgundy are pretty versatile.

I wear them year round. Depending on your wardrobe brown and black might be very versatile.

Brown Navy Burgundy Black Dark/Forest Gren. Excellent and versatile staples. Also can be had cheaper for a starting wardrobe too.

Can someone tell me what's the difference between these 2 cashmere blazers are, that justifies the 500 price difference between Made in Italy RLPolo  and made in italy RLBlackLabel?

Also, does anyone know how to date a RL jacket, from the info/numbers on the attached tags or the sewn in tags?

Who are some designers I should be looking into if I like Stephan Schneider? Thanks.

post #30175 of 33197

I bought these in December and they have developed these marks in the leather. How can I prevent this and also how can I recover it? Will polish do the trick?

Thanks in advance.
post #30176 of 33197

Are they full grain leather? If so them polish will help, shoe cream will probably do better. If they are corrected grain, they are fucked.

Thanks again, caustic man!

Where do you suggest purchasing ties from? I have a few basic ones, but would like to broaden my selections.

post #30179 of 33197

What's your budget? There are places to get great ties at high cost or decent ties at low cost.

I've been recommending http://www.chippneckwear.com/ if you are just starting and don't want to break the bank quite yet. They have well made and styled ties, a decent collection of staples, and all at really good prices. They are quality and made in the USA. If you've a little more money to blow, how about Panta? Sam Hober is a step up from Chipp (maybe two). Kent Wang is solid as well.

 

Edit: And if you really want to get off cheap, and have some time to be picky, you can't beat the thrift store. Some of the nicest ties in my collection cost me less than $6, and retailed for $250.
