    Delivery about a week from when sent, but time from order till despatch is about 30 days usually unless it's in stock. They don't ask for payment upfront and you usually get an email 7 days before they are ready asking for payment. I still don't usually pay until they are actually ready.

    I saw that on your Tumblr. I must say that I like the fact that you have a bamboo ladder at your place.

    The rest of mine is a bit too daunting to tackle - and its just a small bit out of the spare wardrobe. Probably stay like that for a few days. Plus I've just washed 30 shirts (mine and a mates) that have to go

    Delivery is pretty quick from the time they invoice you but it can be a long wait for your order to ship. I ordered a pair in April and recieved them in June, but again it depends on what they have in stock. You could get lucky and they could ship within a week.

    Cheers.

    I'm just ordering a staple pair of brown oxfords which are apparently in stock, so hopefully not too slow.

    I really don't like that Luxire one to be honest, and I can't find a similar one I like with that hackett.

    I'm trying to find something Identical to this but with a button down collar :(

    Have a look at my earlier response to you (see spoilered quote below) - I posted a few examples from various places and those same places (TM Lewin and Charles Tyrwhitt) also have button-down collar options. The last one, in particular, looks like it might suit you.

    Navy gingham check shirts are very common, both with regular collars and button-down collars, so it shouldn't be hard to find one, although you might struggle to find a really slim one.

    What size are you Foxhound? I have one, brand new with tags from Herringbone. Slim Fit Size M. It's identical to the Epaulet one, but with a lovely BD collar.

    EDIT: Or if anyone else is interested in it, PM me. I have a feeling it may be a tad big for Foxhound as correct me if I'm wrong, but you may be an XS/S?

    No, but thankyou though!
    Damn! Yeah I'm a slim fit small :( Would have bought it straight away, thanks tbm!
    Okay, that looks, A LOT BETTER. And I think I'll probably go for it. The picture over at luxire makes the colour look GROSS.

    Trio of ties - last gasp of the Henry Buck's sale...

    [​IMG]

    IRL the left-hand tie has a deeper red background and the right-hand tie is more like tangerine.

    The two left-hand ties are 60% wool/40% silk and RH is pure silk. All are from Ascot of Germany.

    Now I have to figure out how to work them into a fit...

    Latest instalment in my grown up shoe collection. Carmina rappello suede on rain last from the armoury. I'm almost done with the upgrades- just need a pair of boots and maybe a pair of monk straps and I reckon I could done.
