We can talk about structure, texture, hand weight and quality but just the look and feel of these items alone identify them as quality.

I purchased Grenadine Grosso in Burgundy and Forest Green.

Thanks James!

 

I still don't like the FIH knot as it reminds me too much of how I used to tie my tie for school!

 

Kenneth

 

Shame, its how a proper knot is done.

Thanks! No, it's actually a Canali suit which I've had for about eighteen months. I have a lot of Canali stuff because my Sydney office is just up the road from their boutique. They have sales twice a year and I can never resist.

I ordered three Ascot Chang shirts last year during their trunk show. They are amongst my best shirts.

Starts at $250 for MTM. Can't remember the fabric, but wasn't Thomas Mason.

Should be Soktah, lovely fabric. Copped a feel today.

Something shifty going on over at Orazio Luciano, curious to see what The Armory has to say about it

 

Also, interesting to note that Ethan is leaving The Armory, it'll be interesting to see where he will go.

Oh no.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Once a local label crafting boots that stood the test of time, now a world-renowned fashion stable peddling sartorial wares from top to toe (the quality kicks still remain), Australian label R.M. Williams have just unleashed their new Spring Summer 15 campaign for the everyman.

The new range sticks to R.M.'s traditional roots, but the rules are slightly bent - modest blazers and leather goods sit comfortably alongside slim patterned ties, brogues and a swag of essential accessories (belts, anyone?). It's race day attire than can be worn just as easily off the field, at a bar or in the boardroom. Next season's wardrobe sorted.

The new range drops July 21. Head to RMWilliams.com.au for more info.

Is the shirt being made by B&Tailor or SteadyState (http://www.steadystate.co.kr)?

 

Did you get a jacket as well Nabil? Hopefully they come for a trunkshow at the end of the year!

MIne is from B&T, not SteadyState.

 

And no jacket.. holding off on suits at the moment. I am a fan of the Florentine silhouette and lean towards it more than the Neapolitan one. Maybe some day I'll give B&T a go

 

Joe's examined my Iris commissions and reckons there's no need to change tailors. So, there.

Thanks. Are you saying that Iris Tailor are proponents of the Florentine style? I understand though. I like short skirts too.

Iris construction and handiwork on nabils jackets are top notch. I find it her style more English rather than Florentine but perhaps it's the shoulders that she does for Nabil

Ascot Chang is coming in August... I find they fit better than PJ plus they do Chinese monograms although to be fair I've never asked PJ if they also can. PJ shirts do have nicer buttons though!

Can't fault AC shirts - got three made up when I was in Honkers last year - fantastic fit and great fabrics. Must admit these are the first bespoke shirts I've tried and I reckon I've been well looked after! (But there's every chance I don't know any better - although the fit smashes both TML and CT shirts by a mile).

 

In other news, we have an Irish/Rock playlist going on on Spotify and well, damn it's good... no, actually it's brilliant!

Ha, nice boots, I wore mine to lunch, so did Gerry. We also wore Henry Carter Scarves.
