Well, it may be the wool, but other woolen suits I have do not smell like the Caruso one. The smell is harsher and more persistent.

I might steer away from wearing cashmere ties (or wool ties, generally) with cashmere jackets. Although if someone claims it can be done successfully, I won't argue the point.

I would think that if you rightly wanted some contrast in texture between your cashmere jacket and your tie, any number of silk ties might be worth considering.

Also, as cashmere strikes me as being more of a cold weather thing, than a summertime one, I probably wouldn't pair a cashmere jacket with a summery necktie. You know, like a linen tie.

What do you think? Could you post some reasonable quality photos of the ties which you wear with your cashmere jackets, and about which you have doubts? Specifically, what is it about these ties which causes you to think they might not be quite right? Heck, pics of the jackets themselves might not be amiss, as not all cashmere jackets are alike.

Cashmere (for me anyhow) is 4 seasons, I wear it with silk, wool, and more cashmere.

Wet wool can have a very unpleasant odor. I got rid of it in one of mine by using Dryel. A regular dry cleaning would probably work too.

i have two regent fit cotton blazers from brooks brothers
they both have shoulder padding ... thinking about just removing them
but that will probably make the shoulders too big/loose?

I'm not going to say it can't be done, but wool/cashmere ties are traditionally a Fall/Winter item. I'd certainly not choose to wear one during the summer.

Depends on the size of the person wearing them, but I'd say 2" is the max, and you'd have to be pretty tall for that to be considered CBD. 1.5-1.75" is probably safer.

Thanx. What about spring? if it is temperature wise similar to Autumn?

To a point, the temperature is irrelevant. Spring/summer and fall/winter are generally grouped together. Despite the average temperatures being similar, fall and spring have a very different "feel," which is why we typically wear different clothes.

I've never had that done, but I've heard that shoulders can be very difficult to alter.  Maybe you could ask the pros over in the tailoring thread?

Hey guys.  Is this Oxxford suit a value for money in the 500 quid range?

I have done so much research on these forums and Oxxford suits seem to be good value for mone.

 

Thanks

Yes. Oxxford makes a very nice suit, and that's a nice classic fabric, it's brand spanking new, and looks to be a pretty recent model.

Be warned though, Oxxford is known to have a generous fit. Check the measurements against something you own.
