Tucking the small end of the tie into the label simply eliminates the problem of the little piece separating from the big piece. It does not solve the problem of the entire tie moving around. Because tie clips connect the shirt to the tie, the entire tie stays in place.

My local guy is good enough for basic stuff, but I've become a little suspicious when he said Bruno Magli shoes were better quality than my Aldens.

I sent a pair of calf longwings off to My Shoe Man for a new pair of heels. Cheap, quick turnaround, and the workmanship was fine. Dunno about their recrafting though.

! My Bruno Maglis appear to be much better quality than my friend's Aldens. The softest leather I've ever felt, hand sewn, and all that.

3:42:27 PM on April 3, except on leap years, when it's 5:22:54 AM on April 4. Seriously, until it's too warm. Seasonality of clothing is dictated by the weather. If it's cold, wear appropriate clothing. If it's warm, wear appropriate clothing.

I walk into a cobbler's store yesterday who happens to be an authorized AE dealer. I was just checking to see they a pair of McAllistars. They didn't, but the guy tells me he could order me a pair and he would give me 15% off. I know this is a good deal, but should I be at all concerned?

Do lasts differ between Florsheims like they do for AEs?

ie, if I fit a 10D in standard Florsheim vintage shoes that you see all over the place, will I have the same size in Imperials?

I'd like to know what SF thinks of this jacket for spring and summer wear: Regent Fit Soft Jacket in Navy, in cotton Nii's list of essentials brought it to my attention. The price is very low and I assume that Brooks Brothers isn't bad quality (maybe that is a bad assumtion). I'd love to hear your thoughts. It would be my first light-weight jacket and therefore probably the only thing I could wear comfortably in the very hot Japanese summer.

About getting a good deal? Do you have some sort of Protestant guilt over it?

I bought a nice silver tie bar on Amazon (searching for "tie bar") for around 40 bucks. It's a little narrow at 1 7/8 inches. Plain silver, straight, nothing etched or added.

I don't ever think overcoats look like dresses, as long as they open in the front, and don't trail on the floor...?

Howard Yount sells a $35 tie bar that matches this description. If you follow a link from the forum I believe it would help support the collective.


cheers,
