Michael your not suggesting that clothing (including ties) wrinkles when it's worn are you?
Seriously, ties are in no way exempt from wrinkles, especially at the end of the day, whether they have Henry carter, drakes or target on the label. Factories in Italy and indeed around the world have been making them the same way for a very long time, so I can confirm its not a thing done on purpose, it's just something that happens, like when your shoes get creases in them from wearing them. And like the way you put shoe trees in to minimize that, ties need a certain amount of care like hanging at the end of the day to keep them in the best shape.

Shameless plug for my B&S ad in my sig!
post #22853 of 57238

Worked up the courage for 2 fit posts. Welcoming any constructive criticisms =)

 

Fit #1: Last night 1960's themed party, went with 3 piece light grey (it was still light outside in the evening although not strictly evening wear).

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Disclaimer: Crappy iPhone4 pic, bad lighting, in the mirror, no shoes in the house allowed. 

700

 

 

700

 

Details: P Lee 3 piece (some crappy in-house high supers cashmere, wrinkles like a b*tch but feels really smooth, too much break in the pants for my liking, not too fitted, very comfy and moves well), green drakes knitted, vanda PS and clay lapel thingo. Royal Oxford shirt from PJ.

No photographic evidence - black calf quarter brogues

 

Fit #2 My only tux, from wedding this year

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

700

 

Details: PJ dinner suit, Ariston mohair blend (8 oz?), satin peak lapel, TM royal oxford white, Budd satin bow, no brand DavJones white square, IWC

I don't have anything to say about the pics though except that they look good and I've also got that same lapel flower from Vanda :)

Thanks. I have to say, those lapel flowers get me the most compliments.

MIxed comments about them sometimes: ie. I can't believe you are wearing a lapel flower - no one wears those... *pffft

I'm in my late 20s and find myself deliberately dressing down from what I instinctively feel so as not take the spotlight.

For example, I was at a mates wedding last weekend, and also wanted to wear my vanda clay flower thingie, but opted not to because I was already probably the best dressed person, groom included (although he looked pretty sharp too). 

 

Does anyone else feel the same?

By the way, did you get the Barbour?

I've got a couple pairs of rivets. They're a lot more casual than the walts, lower rise a bit more relaxed in the seat with a touch more taper. The taped out seam also makes them look more a lot more casual. I wear them on casual days with a buttoned shirt and on the weekend with a tee.

I don't really want to comment on fit because there is so much vanity sizing in the industry. Your best bet is definitely to compare the measurements to something else, keeping in mind that jeans are normally slimmer than chinos because if jeans hug your thighs and calves it doesn't look so bad but in other light weaves it can look terrible. I'd compare to some trousers you have, rather than jeans.

How is the pricing on Pjohnson bespoke shirts? (min-max)

Thanks Jimbo they seem to fit like my dark grey pants except for the taper; the thighs seem fine :)

What colours did you get? The guys one the Epaulet forum seem to have collections of them in every colour!
