    My bar jacket wig and robes just arrived from Ludlows - my first ever set :)

    After my chat with Richard when he was down here a couple of weeks ago, they were even kind enough to throw in a Henry Carter navy silk twill tie, gratis.

    Sorry for the image quality, I took the photo with a toaster.

    Mate, all you need to do is understand which last fits you best. For Loakes, they are all mostly the same. 026 is probably quite common, and Capital lasts. Once you know which lasts fits you best, then you can shop online at say Herrings for more choices and colors.

    i love those shoes. btw guys my Trafalgar belt arrived today in dark brown : First impressions: - its very thin compared to other dress belts i own, but overall i am pleased with the leather quality and look of the belt on. - my only concern is how it will last over time compared to my "thicker" leather belts which have served me well [​IMG] [​IMG] If anyone buys from the store use TTY10 for 10% off - received a little note in the package. cheers

Snow country, still a metre or two metres of snow beside streets and houses. Today top of 7 and rain heavey all day. Have had some warmer days. staying with friends father in house with only one chair in whole house. Seven people. No net access , am stealing some neighbours access here.

    Yeah I'll try and make this one. Bavarian Bier Cafe might be a decent venue (the one on O'Connell street is a lot less crowded than York). It has the added bonus of being opposite Henry Bucks.

    There is never a time I've seen a unbuttoned BD and though it wouldn't look better as either
    a) not a BD or
    b) actually buttoned...

    That thread has entered Bizarro world.

    By the way, how does everyone arrange their ties in storage?

    By colour, by material or by some other criteria?

    That is for the valet to deal with.

    Hang most of them, no real rhyme or reason (which is strange as everything else in wardrobe is by category then colour, eg shirts together and run from white to navy, black leather shoes sit with black leather shoes and so on).

    Knit ties and some wool ones in a box (but starting to hang all but knit ties). Might need to look at organising the ties on the hanging rack. Only structure so far is bowties at the top.

    I long ran out of room on my tie racks - im tripling up on rungs now - better ties on top so the crappier ones are used as protection hehe

    im half considering getting metal bars and a step ladder to organise my suiting though and at the same time I might get bars installed to hang my ties too

    Ive got high ceilings so I can get two levels of suits in if I do it and probably would need to rotate top and bottom by season. hmm writing this out sounds like a lot of work... need a batman style mechanical popup cage that sink back into the floor and automatically organise my suits in a stacker style arrangement....
