Jason,

 

Your website has turned insane at the moment (for me, at least) - on the 'ties' page all the images overlap and it's almost impossible to navigate.

Any other fit than "tailored" in LE is dangerous floppy large American fit territory - except in some cases.
LE can be inconsistent from season to season in fits etc even in commonly named and numbered styles. And sometimes they don't even run a line each year. Best advice is - if you find something that fits just right in LE, like chinos, then wait for their frequent 30% off sales and buy a big bunch. My favourite fit/style of chinos doesn't even appear in their lines for the last 12 months. Luckily I have 6 pairs but would like more colours. Ditto one OCBD - they no longer make the best colour - light blue with widely spaced white guarded stripes - and I only have one shirt of it.

Really? I have two pairs of LE cotton/linen trou and like them a lot. I have a navy pair I wear once/week and a very light cream pair I haven't been game to wear at all yet shog[1].gif

Yes bear with it for a bit, the web guy is doing some work on it to fix some image issues. Should be back to normal within the hour.

Based on having actually popped in to see Pat before the December hols, I would say - 'are garish' - is a sweeping statement.

The ties I picked - an inky navy Drakes 50oz twill with widely spaced white spots, the same tie in chocolate brown, and a Drakes navy jacquard with white pindots- were anything but garish.

Even if we're talking about the non-Drakes P Johnson ties, I didn't see many garish, clown designs. What I DID see was lots and lots of solid ties (wool, twill and grenadine).

I agree that some of the pocket squares can be a little OTT.

Lastly, I agree with the overall sentiment that shoulder and lapel width dictate how wide a tie should be; fortunately for me, the ideal tie width falls between 7-8.5cm, and for a knit, I can even go 6.5cm.

This tie is 7cm:


So is this:


And this one is 8cm:


Horses for courses.

You are correct re: their new patterns - I was mistaken. You are also correct in saying that I was thinking of their LSD meets #menswear prints from last season.

Now if only they would fix their widths!!!

They also have some lovely looking knits in nice widths. Hmmm, may investigate further...

That's a good way of putting it. I might try ironing out the creases and dressing them down a bit, see if that looks wearable. Other thing is that they're a little bit see-through and I don't own any white jocks...

Agreed, though one must point out that there are *ahem* other local options that are significantly more keenly priced

Only the drakes are 7cm

the cashmere and 7folds are 8cm and 8.5cm in width icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

 

I agree with CEP - 1cm width difference isnt that bad .. in fact its not just the final width but the gradient at which the tie narrows that also dictate how "skinny" or phat a tie looks

Not on everything it seems. Just took a suit to Katrinas and they're charging me the same ($40) to take up sleeves as MJ Bale charged me last time. Should have just left it with them! Was expecting Katrinas might be close to half of that, but they're very busy lately and it looks like they may have bumped their prices accordingly, I've not been there in a while.
