    Just ordered two of the Begg scarves for Christmas gifts and a Mazzarelli royal blue oxford and brown tubo belt for myself. Was very tempted to add the Vass suede oxfords, but fiscal discipline won.

    The buttonholes are working, so the sleeves must be shortened from the shoulder. Do you have a good tailor?

    Hmm, that's what I was afraid of.

    I think I could find someone in NYC to do it but I'm worried it will look a bit off if I have to shorten it too much. I wouldn't want them any longer than 24 inches, and really 22 inches would be better.

    Also take into account the weathering at the shoulder was applied to both sides of the seam.

    On the other hand, buttonholes are working so you can always roll them up?

    Heh, I suppose I could do that - it would go with the casual nature of the jacket. But I think it would a bit odd what with the thickness of the material.

    It's too bad the buttons are working, it's a fantastic looking jacket and I was looking for a brown overcoat.

    You are a stronger man than me. I tried hard not to buy the Vass scotch grain alt wiens, but in the end I just had to have them. Fiscal discipline will have to wait for another time.

    Greg or Edouard

    Thoughts on either 8.5 or 9 cm option in Drakes in future keeping current length? 8 cm just noticeably too narrow for me and I think I read in another thread that Greg would usually widen his Drakes from I presume an 8cm.

    I believe that's part of the original early 20th century Merz design and meant to improve arm movement.
    I haven't done that in years but I have sent ties to have widened - it's easy and cheap.

    I like having ties in the store of various widths because everyone seems to have a strong opinion about tie width... So we have 8cm, 8.5cm and 9cm available. All from great makers, and all in the width that each maker feels is their house style. I think that is the right approach. I mentioned it before in the thread but I am personally happy with anything from 8 to 9cm - or of course narrower for knits. I feel that the color and material of a tie has more visual effect on the width perception than 1/6 " at the widest point.

    Drakes has a whole separate pattern for 9 cm. so it's not just the width, but the entire shape that's different. I think they do lovely ties in all widths, but 7 and 8 cm is more their "house style". 9 cm they do when ordered, but don't make for their own store.

    Hmm, I'm getting the emails but can't log in, saying that the password is incorrect. I presumed that I'd forgotten the password and asked via the website for a new one - the systems says it's sent out the password email to me, but I never get it. Tried a few times too...pity I'm missing the Founders sale :(
