Bought one of those from Men's Biz a while ago. It seems to work, but I've always wondered if it was just a placebo effect. Good to have someone else confirm my impression.

I have a few TM Lewin ties and they all tie a good knot that dimples well. You can often find them in op shops too, which makes them even better value.

You should probably mention that you are the seller.

Also, I think that you might be confusing Canali with Zegna in your auction spiel, as I've never seen a jacket made from "Canali fabric". Zegna is a weaving house as well as a clothing manufacturer, and I've seen plenty of "Zegna" suits that were made from Zegna fabric by entirely unconnected manufacturers. However, I've never seen that for Canali, and Canali doesn't make its own cloth.

I should have figured that JM stood for Journalistic Master.

To achieve a good dimple, I think that having a tie that stays fairly wide right until the knotting point is crucial. Otherwise there simply isn't enough material to make the dimple "W" shape.

I always get lots of compliments from women on both my length and width.

Some are very impressed with my dimple and my ability to get a good knot is unique but somewhat inhibiting in certain activities.

TIME TO SEND OUT THE CV.

Its a basic skill that any grown up should have.

I assume you know the old toothpick/matchstick under button trick chief?

Darning socks is also a must.

I can sew on buttons but I cannot darn socks and, to be entirely frank, I have no desire to learn!

You should. (Sounds like the kind of response I'd expect from Tony Abbott)

Most times a hole in a sock is merely at the toe, sometimes the heel, and a result of an errant toenail.

Darning with stronger wool or cotton will in fact make the sock even stronger.

Most darning I do takes about only 4 or 5 questions on QI per sock.

All you need is wool/cotton a large darning needle and a darning mushroom.

No need to throw away a good sock through a misplaced pride in your lack of basic survival skills.

speaking of buttons - we used prestige buttons on our new boutonnieres for a custom order ... came out pretty nice.

 

Have to say prestige buttons are some of the best ive ever seen - depth of lustre on the nacre is incredible
