They probably assumed you wouldn't be able to afford pocket squares if you are wearing their clothing.
I popped into Ludlow's on Friday to check out the Henry Carter ties they would be selling. Unfortunately, the ties hadn't arrived yet but I did get to have a nice chat with the owner. Turns out he found out about Henry Carter via SF and checks in once in awhile although he doesn't post. They had what appeared to be a nice selection of suits, some Kent Wang and Robert Talbott handkerchiefs (linen as well as silk) and Fox umbrellas. I didn't check out prices.
Definitely recommend going in there to meet him if nothing else.
What kind of cotton do you guys like your shirts in?
I am a big fan of Egyptian cotton right now. So smooth and durable at the same time.
Which stores would you recommend for the Egyptian cotton shirts? Rhodes and Beckett or Val Parks, here in Sydney?
Also, for the uninitiated, what are some classic checks on working out the quality of construction in the shirt?
Went in there today and was told that the machine for chainstitching is expected monday.
How can you say that? Egyptian cotton as a whole, has a completely different feel to other cottons. I will look into Thomas Mason! Thanks Rob!
