Agreed, but don't wait until it sells out, because it's a very nice tie. I'm still troubled occasionally by what happened with that caramel twill. tounge.gif

 

I'm the same with the brown pindot from last season :<

To the person who bought the socks too large - I'll buy the cotton ones from you.

This article might interest you - http://www.permanentstyle.co.uk/2008/04/italian-background.html

Depending on what else you have a navy grenadine or black knit are also very useful.

Put This On have a great series on building a tie collection - http://putthison.com/tagged/The-Necktie-Series

If I was to choose one of the two I would take the latter with the small dots (a little more formal and easy to match with other items in my opinion).

Everyone, everyone, needs a black knit tie.

Maybe make it the Friday coming? Give the boys a little time to work out their calendars?

Let's try and lock down 8 March, 7pm, Tio's, for the Sydney folks. How's that sound?

Previously I was seeking advice from the forum members about finding a good alteration place for my suit. I am glad to report back that I am a happy customer from Hayal and Son in the Sydney CBD. However they are definitely not cheap.

 

Also I just like to say that I have made a massive mistake by wearing my near new Crocket and Jones on a rainy day in the Sydney CBD. I think I have pretty much ruined the beautiful leather sole, and almost got myself killed...(skiing on water in CBD) And no, it hasn't had topy, I don't like it. the sole turned out discoloured, too many small stone holes and just rough.... An amateur mistake. Definitely will wear the ones with Topy in future rainy days...

 

Any tips to restore the sole and maintaining them?

He just might...

By the way, tobiasj, I just noticed that someone has posted in your "High Tied" thread to ask if the navy with green dots knit tie will be back in stock at some stage.

In the case of black knit tie; I have always wondered why it is more versatile than navy? Starting out I always thought you never needed a black tie except for 'black tie'; also that it was always preferable to get a navy. While I myself have never owned a black knit (heresy :) I have always wondered why everyone think they are the most versatile; is it a trad thing? Don't get me wrong I do enjoy the aesthetic but why black>navy for knits when usually it's always navy>black for most ties?

It's an interesting one, which I can't really answer. I have owned a navy one back before I started the business, but when I'm wearing navy ties I tend to go for pin dots, plain twill or grenadine, so the black makes a nice change. It works very well simply, mid-dark grey suit, white shirt, white linen ps and black oxfords. Also fantastic with beige/khaki cotton suits/coats.

(I do not own a black knit either, yet, though I do have a navy one, a navy with white dots and a navy grenadine).
