    Yeah, I wasn't sure if this is the same brand. "woven in Italy from wool raised by a small consortium of farmers in Australia and New Zealand". The tie's cloth is made in France. And the logo is different, but of course that could have changed.

    anyone have any experience with the fit/quality of BBs Black Fleece line? I know it's designed by Thom Browne (already I hear the cheers and jeers)... just curious as I haven't seen it in person.

    Shirts are slim, not super slim, made in USA good quality.

    Knits are mostly import made, more shrunken, quality depends on piece

    Suits / Blazers / Sport coats are made by Southwick, good quality but probably not worth retail, slightly shrunken fit, very narrow lapels

    I assumed as much... but had seen many pieces of theirs on sale so maybe at like 50% off or more would be a good grab....

    What shade of brown best compliments a dark navy suit aside from a very dark brown? I would prefer the price range to be around $500 and below. Any brands or sources would be appreciated.

    Did I miss it or are you talking about shoes?

    The word is "complements". :slapfight: There are threads on here for shoe porn, WAYWRN (What Are You Wearing Right Now), and shoe, sock and pant combos which should be helpful to you.

    Since there is no offical tie thread...

    Six fold or seven fold? Why and where do you buy them?

    Accidentally posted this in the street ware quick question section sorry. Here goes.

    I was wondering if anyone knew what you called this lanyard strap for the sunglasses shown here. Also where to buy one?
