No problems at all. My recommendations in order for a blue tie would be as follows -

http://henrycarter.com.au/product/navybrown-30oz-macclesfield-neat/ - sold out but coming back in about 3 weeks. Could be made longer for you for $10 extra if you let me know in the next few days.

http://henrycarter.com.au/product/navyred-dot-30oz-macclesfield-neat/ - only 1 left

http://henrycarter.com.au/product/slate-blue-grenadine-fina/ Not navy but a beautiful shade of blue non the less

http://henrycarter.com.au/product/navy-grenadine-grossa/ Good staple. Out of stock for 3 weeks. Again could be made longer for $10.

http://henrycarter.com.au/product/navy-bambino-grenadine/ A more formal weave.

Moving forward, I'll send you a pm later so we don't clog the thread up. @ovlov i'll send you one too.

Best
Jason

What is it with autocrats and short sleeves? 
At first I thought Boris Johnson might just be cheaping out on the suit Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

But Blair flashes some cuff too: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I'm not sure if you are suggesting I'm like Boris or Tones ..or even more insulting like PoP.. but.. I don't think their sleeves are too short - probably just the bent arms (no jokes about bent politicians please) anyway, if a choice has to be made, my preference is for showing more cuff rather than none.

I also wear navy trousers with a brown jacket and with beige or sand-coloured jackets.

Here's an example that I've posted previously:

Great combination of colors

Hi,

I will be moving to Sydney next week. I was just wondering how is the fashion situation down-under? I will be needing suits and would like some advice on where is the best place to buy high quality suits for, of course, reasonable prices.

Thanks

Alright gents, this morning's weather reminded me that I'm in need of a hat for the winter. No beanies. 

 

I'm tossing up between an Ushanka or a Karakul - what does the forum think? (Serious responses on plz)

post #49296 of 53377
I think it 'aint that cold in Melbourne for either of those. Hell, it isn't that cold in Canberra for one. You'd roast I reckon.

Can't beat the Kara-cool, for that Central Asian potentate vibe. Jagshemash!

I have no natural fur of my own (on my head at least anyway) ... so I don't think I'd be that warm. And really would only be used for early mornings or late nights. 

 

Anyone want to throw out some alternatives?

 

PoP, if I got it in a camo would it be a Tacti-cool Kara-cool?

If you get it in camo you can expect some 'special attention' from the TSA.

If you wear a karakul, are you also going to wear a chapan cape?

That looks like something Luca Rubinacci would wear. Not for me sorry J man.

He could also do the Coming to America look.




Actually, the more I think about it, the more I think wearing a wool cap like that would look less costumey than wearing a fedora. People would assume you were wearing it as a symbol of your cultural heritage, or at least that's the line you can trot out if anyone has a go at you. My only concern would be if it would withstand a bit of rain like a felt hat.
