Ralph Lauren outlet shop in DFO should have those. I snagged a blue and red one at their sale.

Thanks for the tip as well Oli, can't spy one on their website however. Seasonal change I guess.

 

You can try Eliza B & Leatherman Ltd, they make the surcingle and ribbon belts for Howard Yount. You can customise to the nth degree and get exactly the combination you want. Prices and shipping are reasonable and quality is outstanding.

I take back what I said about Cordial Churchman not being that formal. They have a couple of very nice looking black or white ties (or black & white!) tipped in a variety of ways.
Butterfly, narrow, straight, fat, club round, club diamond, diamond butterfly.

On the shirt washing issue, bicarb and vinegar combined and left on for 20 minutes before washing can help.

I've got a few bowties from the Cordial Churchman.

The quality of the fabric used is variable - a couple of the fabrics are great, but a couple are a bit cheap, particularly the two tweedy ones that I bought. It can be a little bit difficult to tell the fabric quality from the photos.

However, the actual bow ties are well-made and tie nice knots. It was good to be able to specify the width of the tie and the shape of the tie, too.

I'm looking to get an unstructured jacket from P Johnson for summer. Was originally leaning towards a navy in blazer cloth, but I already have enough navy jackets for now. I'm thinking of a nice mid-blue with a large-scale windowpane in light blue or white. Something along these lines:

 

 

Thoughts, recommendations?

JM beat me to it. J Press, IMHO, has the best looking collection.

I like their stuff, and yep, they're well made.

I did miss yebisu when it went on hiatus, but it appears to be back.

The distributor of Yebisu only sells to restaurants apparently.... sucks as I love that beer

How about a light grey or beige?

Thoughts on a standard  toe cap oxford vs whole cut as a standard more formal show in the workplace.

 

I am partial to these Meermin whole cuts, Do a similar shoe feature in the rotation of anyone here?

Who's the distributor of Yebisu? If the distributor only sells to restauranteurs, I could possibly help in that regard..

Yeah, I thought about light grey. Most of the trousers I wear casually are white, khaki, stone or grey with the occasional "big plaid" thrown in, most of which would probably look washed out when paired with a grey jacket, but I'm prepared to be convinced. I've started moving away from jeans, especially in the summer, as I'm not too fond of swap butt, which further limits the utility of light gray.

 

If I was to go for a light grey jacket, I would probably just get a full suit made.

These guys have their sticker on the bottles - http://www.jfcaustralia.com.au/

Haha,

I love how Kirin and Asahi are under their 'local beer' products. I knew Kirin owns Lion Nathan and brews it in Australia for local consumption. Asashi owns Schweppes and uses Independent Distillers (got to love the company name) but I thought the stuff supplied to the public was brewed in Thailand - so it can be passed off as imported.

Sorry, I seem to have gotten things off topic.

What about a seersucker sports coat? Then you can have both mid-blue and light grey.
