    From the latest visit to Las Vegas and the Kiton boutique. Just arrived by UPS yesterday. My Galaxy Nexus camera didn't do the best job of handling the combination of artificial and natural light, so the colors aren't the best. The shirt and the first two ties are the closest to how they actually look.

    Navy with gray stripe. Very soft, natural shoulder. (Is "shirtsleeve" shoulder still used?) Pants are flat front with cuffs.

    Light blue with dark blue and pink stripes. Spread collar. Originally had button cuffs but they ordered double cuffs and attached them at the store before shipping.

    [​IMG]
    Pocket squares. The colors are way off here. Top is white and orange with blue. The bottom one you can see better in the next picture of the ties.

    All ties are seven fold. The tie on the left in the first picture is unlined silk. The second is silk with lining. In the second picture the one in the middle is linen. The one on the right is also unlined silk (and it is more orange than pink).

    Nice. But I would think french cuffs would be inconvenient when you're cutting somebody up or sewing them back together. :)

    Those Kiton ties certainly make a statement. A bit too loud for me :) Lovely SC Stitchy

    I'll certainly have to be selective about where I wear them. There's a time and place for nearly everything. I have plenty of subdued ties.

    it's nice. the reason I ask is that I thought it might be a BC cashmere herringbone, which I didn't think existed but would be interested in if it did

    ^SC looks great stitches. Is there something special about the cotton since it doesn't wrinkle much?

    i would be interested as well. i used to have an almost identical RLPL cashmere version of this. sold it because it was too large. this cotton feels like the RLPL cashmere. its just. that. soft.

    :)


    thank you. i guess just the way it was woven/spun?


    thanks, joshua!

    Just won this 7 fold Cappelli on eBay. I was taking stock/culling ties last weekend and it dawned on me I didn't own a yellow tie. Now I do.
