Almost finished-Trad and Not Wardrobe


Apr 5, 2006
Reaction score
During the last year, and the previous two or three, I've added and expanded my wardrobe so it is about where I want it to be; which is fortunate since it now matches my available closet space (I know Patrick06790 believes this is no obstacle but I don't believe my future holds as much more as does his)

Other than the note below about replacing sport coats with Oxxford on sale in the coming years, I'm only planning on the occasional individual shirt, tie, sweater or pant that either replaces something I have worn out or is truly distinctive. (I know what Patrick is going to say about that!)

Here's where my wardrobe stands:
Suits-4-Oxxford Super 110/120/130s with working buttons
Sport coats-wool/cashmere/linen/silk blends-6-Oxxford, Zegna(to be annually replaced by Oxxfords)-with working buttons, including those listed following:

I don't think I've ever said, except indirectly, on any post here how much help these forums have been in finding out about the quality and availability of clothes. I thank all of you for your posts and help.

How do you find those Pendleton ties?
How do they knot?

My Pendelton ties are probably 15 years old. Try their website. The ties are narrow but tie fine.

This may be a dumb question & if so I'm sorry -
I couldn't spot any pocket squares & wondered if you didn't 'wear' them.
You certainly seem to have everything else covered.

I just wondered. They're less common in England than the US for some reason. Most Americans on the MBs seem to favour them.
