That is very unfortunate. Sorry to hear about that. We were also broken into several months ago and it necessitated installing security grilles on our windows before we felt safe again. 


I had the opportunity to steam the three piece suit I received from C&G today, The uneven sleeve length is probably due to the Tyrwhitt shirt i had on. The cuffs are massive on that thing, seriously. MJ Bale makes a much nicer cuff on their equivalent shirt size.

Three pieces, generally you leave the jacket open to show the vest ;p

^ Not really, iSurg. It's quite all right to walk with the top button buttoned.

^^ Looks superb, Stebbin. That your first suit from Amy? If so, that's really great for a first go. They nailed my sizing on the first try, too. Very well done smile.gif

Personal preference but I tend to think they look better undone, especially if you've got your fog watch bling happening

post #38105 of 52379
Yes, that's a valid point, but if you don't have a pocket watch, then it's kind of moot. But, as you say, it's a personal preference thing.

Yes, first suit. Huddersfield fabric from the weekly specials, a nice 9.5oz grey check. I had some measurements that I had from my previous orders at some other MTM places and it was good to see they had done a good job. If I were make another order, I'd probably ask for the sleeves to be rotated a bit to ease out some of the creases and get them to make the waistcoat pockets a little higher. However, I'm quite happy with this first attempt and it has been much better than some other suits I received.

Question time guys.
Had a disaster at lunch with the folks today. A confluence on unfortunate events led to my only silk shirt being SPRAYED with bolognese. My mum took it off me insisting she can fix it no probs. I've now found she's lathered it in SARD which according to the label should not be used on silk and is letting it set in. (Jjust saved it before she threw it in the wash).
Is this going to destroy the shirt?
Is there any way to fix it? Or was is already rooted? ;(

Bill, 

 

As a candidate for leadership, you should know that the Duke of Windsor never actually used a Windsor knot - he had is own ties made up with thicker lining. On most men the Windsor almost always looks too big, symmetrical and forced. 

 

Stick with the four-in-hand and you'll have my vote. 

 

Best of luck,

Very minor stuff indeed (not sure it's even needed, but go for it). Glad to hear it went so well. Lovely fabric, too.

Foxy - sorry to hear about the burg. My neighbours got broken into last Thursday. Only discovered it when she came home with kids from school around 4pm or so . The house had been empty since 8 am - so its not clear when they broke in. She thinks she might have disturbed them. They (him,/her) got an axe from back shed and broke the lock /handle etc on the laundry door at side of house. Doesn't seem anything was taken. Although they had possibly been through drawers. Mr Plod said they had a few along the general railway line route - typical. Check with Cash Crime Converters along the public transport routes from your house.

These days they travel along public transport routes - do a quick breeze through - nothing to pinch except mobile phones, tablets, cash and jewelry. Sometimes a laptop. - ahh for the good old days of lifting Video recorders, CDs, Vinyl, clothes, TVs, DVDs etc - nothing is worth anything second hand these days. Luckily I haven't been done over for more than 10 years. Its a bugger of a feeling.

rubbing alcohol and hairdryer on lowest setting/cool should do the trick. repeat. i've gotten out pen marks with rubbing alcohol off my ties.

Mr Fox

Sorry to hear about the break in, I was broken in yrs ago, it's a complete violation. Especially when your personal space and items have been disturbed/stolen.

Heads up though mate, if you or parents were home, things could have been worse.

Fxh, as a lefty - blade in front, watch on left hand, bowl left handed, bat right handed (cricket maan) kick left footed.

Gotta summer wedding in Sydney, thinking a bright navy(French) with peak lapels, pink shirt, navy silk knit, brown dub monks or single monks(carmina-Simpson) Sound good gents? Any recommends on suit? .....
