Im looking to buy a tie like this blue one here. Does anyone have any tips?

 

Here is a similar tie:

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

You are looking for an unlined hand sewn tie, likely a 3 fold.

can someone who knows please advise me--what is the quality of corneliani like?  Compared to say, Canali or  Zegna or Isaia?  about the same or less?  reasons would be greatly appreciated!  

post #21678 of 28664
Bout the same as all of those but Isaia, which is higher than the rest due to some handwork in the construction.

ok thanks.  does "Corneliani" automatically guarantee full canvas construction?  Or is it like Zegna, where you can get full canvas to fully fused?

I'm honestly not sure. It wouldn't surprise me at all if they sold a half-canvassed line, but I know their mainline stuff is full canvas.

Two different beasts. H&K makes a sturdy, machine-stitched shirt in the English tradition, without the handstitching and fat buttons and romantic sales pitches you get from the Italians. Collar choices are limited, and there's less emphasis on luxury cloths. But it's very practical, consistent in styling, and the classic collar is almost universally flattering. Guys who go for Italian shirts, especially the flashier collars and more conspicuous details, may find H&K a bit austere. But it generally hits the marks for me. Depends what you like and want from a shirt.

Mainline Corneliani is very nice. But they have multiple lines of varying quality and styling. Some of it aims younger/casual with quirky detailing that can fall on the wrong side of odd. But the conservative mainline stuff can be great. One of my favorite makers.

what do you mean by "mainline"?   is this a mainline label?

post #21684 of 28664
Yes, that's mainline.

I checked those two before, but I am little lost in sleeve length, thats why I am asking about this one. They also have webpage.

Don't know anything about that one.  Certainly cheap, but I haven't heard of it.  I'd have recommended TM Lewin and Charles Tyrwhitt too for simple value from my own experience.

 

If you're not sure about sleeve length, maybe you can measure a shirt that fits you well?  Assuming you're not near any of their actual shops, in which case you could go try.

 

But if you're in doubt, it's better to go longer rather than shorter: even if the sleeves are too long, it won't show under a suit and you can make the cuffs sit higher on your hand by just moving the button, if you don't want to get them taken up properly.  Too short, and you're stuck.

post #21687 of 28664

Ok, I think I'll try Charles Tyrwhitt,  TM Lewin postage to "Rest of Europe" is just too high.

If you post pics in the Tailor's Fit Feedback thread, folks there can help you decide if it fits.

Actually you can alter the shoulders, but it is expensive. My tailor charges about $160.

Just picked up a Dries suit for some weddings. It is a very faint plaid print, something that came out very pronounced in the pictures. Anyway, my gut tells me that because the suit has a pattern, I should stick with a plain shirt and tie. If true, what color shirt/tie should I go with? The more options the better...I have 2 weddings on consecutive weekends and I don't want to buy another suit, but another shirt/tie is fine

Hard to really see what the color is - looks like two tones of brown. Maybe a white shirt and solid deep blue tie.
