I'm honestly fine with either functioning or non-functioning sleeve buttons. I just don't like it when they try to look like functioning sleeve buttons.

And are you saying that non-functioning sleeve buttons with fake buttonholes is a lovely thing? This makes no sense to me.

The functional sleeve button thing has gone a bit too far - I bought a jacket that had three functional buttonholes and a fake one... the outermost! Yeah, just so you're forced to wear it unbuttoned. Of course I asked my tailor to cut open the buttonhole.

Where can I buy a good bow tie for a black tie event on the internet?

Price range and location would be a good start. If you are in Norway it will be a much different answer than in the US.

Sorry for the missing information. I live in Germany and would like to pay up to 60€. I would also buy from a shop located in the US though, although the shipping fee could be expensive.

You could check thetiebar.com international shipping is $9.99 flat for orders under $149 with no tracking and $19.99 any order with tracking.

 

In totally off topic, I searched for german bowtie to see if I could find something nearby to you and the number one result was messed up.

I personally think grey is more versatile than silver.

 

Also consider having one of them in a fairly basic pattern. Polka dots (not too small or tight) or some such.

Thank you, Shoeluv.

 

I also found bow ties at Hilditch & Key, Charles Tyrwhitt, T.M. Lewin, etc. but don't know about the quality unfortunately.

 

I never heard about that "German bow tie" before... :)

I would make #3 an A&S repp tie, but I'm an American so I can do those with impunity. Otherwise, a twill neat of some kind would be good. Madder would be great, if it weren't seasonal.

 

I don't like navy ties with navy jackets that much, so I might suggest a burgundy instead, but he knows better than I do.

 

Yeah I'm more of a navy jacket guy. I see black grenadine recommended a lot, but how are they practical? I thought black was a very hard colour to wear (I have dark eyes/hair though)

I don't think this is his issue. I think he just wants to get rid of the fake buttonhole like stitching. That way, he can get the sleeves shortened and the buttons moved up

I don't know of the quality of the bow tie Kent Wang offers but normally his products are top-notch. (when compared to the price)

 

This might work and only 45$ (aprox. 30 EUR) - http://www.kentwang.com/ties/black-satin-bow-tie.html

I stand corrected...what are these and where can i find them? Thanks a lot SF

I recently bought an Isaia jacket on ebay.  Can someone please help me ID if it's a suit jacket or more of a blazer?  I can shorten the length of the jacket by ~1"-2" without throwing off the look right?  Pockets seem a bit high.

I can't seem to find a matching pair of pants to go with the 951 color code either.  If anyone knows where to pick up a pair I'd appreciate the help.

Anyone got any experience with the Polo Ralph Lauren sports coats, in terms of comparison between classic and custom fit? I was told by a salesman that the classic fit is a bit roomier in the sleeves, but other than that, quite similar. Is there truth to this? Cheers
