Do you mean The Tie Bar?
Yes. Thank You! I knew it would be obvious once I heard the name.
Any thoughts on navy sport coats with contrasting white buttons? Is this too much or could it look good if done well?
Anyone know which stores, if any, in LA carries Corthays?
Looks great. I just changed my blazer buttons to white MOP yesterday. I love it.
ovadia and sons has a purple horizontal stripe shirt i am 5'9 150 relativity slim build is horizontal stripe a good look?
This post from Leffot says that they're the only US seller. In NYC.
Bone buttons are great. I believe former forum éminence grise Voxsartoria had a jacket like this. To me, they work best for summer blazer-type jackets.
Cothay's website says the same Oh well. Thanks for the help. Much appreciated.
I have been looking for a pair of semi-brogue captoes in burgandy or dark brown. Do these seem like a good buy for the price? (Excluding VAT and adding shipping, it comes to approx 338)
Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
There is a nice pair of dark brown Sutor captoes for 305 in BS that I am also considering.
Any input is much appreciated! Also, other recommendations are more than welcome.
There's nothing wrong with either choice. But, as must be said repeatedly and emphatically, you should try these on in person or be prepared to ship them back i they don't fit you well. I would recommend Crockett and Jones, for another $80. Again, if they fit well.
I expect you buy them from Leather Soul...
Thanks for the helpful recommendations. I was considering the C&J Westfield, but it is a bit out of my budget. However, I think you are right in that in the long run they are worth biting the bullet on another $80. I would really like to try them on, but I am not sure os a place in Los Angeles (where I live) that sells C&J benchgrade. I never really considered it, so I will have to look around and see if there is a place. Does anyone know of one? Thanks!
What happened to the Von Rothbart thread with all the shoes pics (EG, Lobb, C&J, Vass etc.)?
