Oh and that sheerwater is for Edifice which I believe is made for the Japanese market. My aquascutum is one of those and the fit is much more slim (in a good way) than regular aquascutum, probably more like a Burberry Prorsum.

I just bought this one from Jason

Really nice tie - and I am thinking it will go with grey or navy suits and pale blue shirts - or trousers and a blazer. Nice fine wool - not too fluffy for a wool tie. Its a little bit country and a little bit rock n roll - if I may quote the Osmonds.

You're right. Hope you don't mind but I just did the same - HB already got some of my cash, I'm glad that Jason also had this. This is an unusual tie in a good way.

I don't mind! Thanks mate, I'll pack it up directly. It's been a very popular one of late.

Hahaha - mine just arrived today, guess it will become the third unofficial Australian members tie.

We are all individuals! Actually, it would be appropriate because it is made from Aussie wool.

I'm currently looking for a navy(-ish) sports coat/blazer to add to the wardrobe staples, and somehow ended up looking through DJs last Saturday in the Hugo Boss section of all places. As things turned out I ended up trying on a navy blazer they had which was far too large, so the SA tried on a mid-blue blazer (partial linen apparently) which actually looked quite decent. What wasn't decent was the $1k+ price tag, especially when I noted the same item from the US store for ~$400 online (not to mention general SF comments on the HB price to quality ratio).

 

So, I thought I'd see what I can get online, and remembering what I've read on posts past here I looked up Boglioli to start the search,,, It would seem that a 3-button stance is the current euro-fashion (for want of a better description) which I am really not a fan of. Further looking dug up this: http://www.revolveclothing.com/DisplayProduct.jsp?product=JLIN-MO126&c=Jackets+%26+Coats&s=C&d=p which seems reasonable enough, but it's not something I'll drop that sort of cash on without a chance to check the fit...

 

I'm thinking it might be time to give P Johnson another call, as I am still quite impressed with my first suit commission, but I'm open to suggestions of what else is worthy of consideration at the $500 to $700 price point in blazers/sports coats. Give or take...

As I've mentioned a few times, I have this one:

http://www.epauletshop.com/servlet/the-1048/'Caine-Sportcoat-Navy-Hopsack/Detail

Perfect for summer (very breathable) and can double as a suit jacket.

Whatever you do, please don't get a patch pocket blazer in blogger blue. The world needs less has enough of those.

Popped into Henry Bucks to look for any more of those $50 Drakes scarves as present. Can't find any more and ended up leaving with one of those P. Albizzati linen squares. I don't wear bleeding squares. I have no idea why I bought it. I now have 4 pocket square that I never wear.

On the plus side though, you'll seem very stylish to anyone who pops into your bedroom, especially if they're on a specially built rack.
