Papa looking great there my friend...

For anyone interested, part 1 (printed neats) of the SS collection has just been uploaded. A preview below
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
SHOP HERE
This season I've taken inspiration from the areas and rivers around the Monaro and Snowy Mountain regions and all of the ties are named after a place that I spend any spare time I have fly fishing. This one is the Brindabella, a nearby mountain region that I fish almost weekly. Part 2 (woven silks/repps) will be released in the coming days and then part 3 (knit ties) and part 4 (cotton/linen ties) will both be released in the next 1-2 weeks.

Joiji is right; they are Meermin's on their Ben last. But a burgundy calf. 

 

I wish I could justify the Carmina Ruby shell. Petepan, is the Simpson last quite narrow? I found the Ben last fits snug but not super duper tight. 

 

Cheers all. 

 

Awesome digs, however where were you a week ago when I was tossing up between shell or calf!!

Very nice Jason. Very nice.

EDIT: Just checked out the others online. Beautiful. Did you name them after places you like to fish? Like the personal touch.

Am seriously think we Melbourne Members should start a tie co-op...I cannot really justify buying anymore..one of these might make a great Christmas present (or me and others).

Obviously this will depend on your hair type. If you're using Brylcreem, I suspect you have thick hair (i.e. wide shafts).

 

I have extremely fine (i.e. thin shafts) hair which needs something to stiffen it up a bit and add body. I use KMS Hairplay "molding paste". Finger scrunch into a style, then use a bit of hairspray to hold the shape. That lasts all of five minutes and then it just goes lank and flat again.

 

This was more important to me back in the day. Nowadays I don't really give much of a shit what my hair looks like. Most days I don't bother with the above routine.

Never worn cardigans before dude. Still learnings. 

Convention with vests and cardies is to leave bottom button/s undone.

Pocket square and the required adjustment to your knitwear would have almost got you full marks!

From what I've tried, I go with this -

 

Short hair - American Fibre

Medium length - Bada Bing Pomade (but I've gone off this now as it get's a bit greasy, though not as bad as brylcreem)

Longer length - Lay-rite pomade

 

I also use brylcreem if my hair is dry.

 

If you have a good barber ask their opinion. I prefer pomades so you my opinion may not be helpful to you.

Thanks mate. Yes all of the ties are named after places (or rivers) I fish regularly. I've actually just come back from 3 nights at Lake Crackenback for our wedding anniversary (and co-incidentally opening of the trout season in NSW). Fishing was hard and the water high and cold with the snow melt and this is the only one that came to the net in 3 days.

I'm tempted by the "Cotter" (especially with the hand rolled edges) or "Thedbo" ties...

ha ha well you know you have married the right woman when she lets you plan family holidays around your fishing trips.

Just ordered my first tie from Henry Carter...not the new stuff but a knit on sale. Cheers mate.

Just for the record.

I have a thick shaft that doesn't require anything to keep it stiff.

You didn't address this part though:

I don't know how to describe it, but my rivet's are much more casual, they "scrunch up" Not straight and neat, I just wouldn't like wearing them with a sportscoat.
