    Loden wool, woven in Tirol for centuries, is known for its resistance to cold and wetness. Our project in collaboration with Epaulet introduces Alpine Loden, a modern 18oz fabric blend of 75% merino wool and 25% nylon, woven in Italy. It's lighter, more durable, wind-resistant, and more comfortable than traditional Loden fabric. Partnering with Rochester Tailored Clothing, we offer custom garments like sportcoats, suits, and overcoats, made to your specifications. Learn more about the Loden collection here.

That article about the death of ties has a gentleman wearing a FIH, dimpleless and with a small unflattering collar. There is nothing in that article that could save the tie!

I am so miffed to have missed out on the Ownly.com sale - or at least, on the EG Dovers which are now sold out. Guess I should have been checking this threak more often.

Anyone care to hazard a guess as to when American Tailors might be starting their sale?

Hi Coxsackie and all,
I was one of those who jumped on the EG Dovers from Ownly.com. Unfortunately for me they made a mistake and sent me the wrong size. I am planning to return them in the coming week for a refund. They are size 10.5E/11 on the 888.
Happy to pass them on to anyone who is keen to cover what I paid which was $1030. Feel free to send me a PM.
I was a little sceptical about the dover on 888 but they look fantastic, which of course makes the ownly cockup extra galling...

OK, I ended up ordering a pair of Monmouth derbies 9.5E/10 on the same 888 last. I assumed that 9.5 was British sizing - hope to hell I'm right. However, if I'm wrong, then 10.5 would be 9.5 in British sizing, in which case I would jump on your Dovers.

Let me know - via PM if preferred.

Yes, the 9.5 is the UK sizing and the 10 is the US sizing.

Personally, I find that I have to go up half a size in Edward Green - I usually take a UK9.5 (and sometimes a UK9 in certain shoes) but have to wear a UK10/US10.5 in EG's 202 and 606 lasts.

Missus & I heading to Thailand toward the tail end of the year (November) for a wedding.

This thread has been a treasure trove of travel related advice; and in that spirit, I'm very interested to hear if anyone has recommendations for Phuket.

Been stalking the GST levying news for a while; another nail in the coffin of Australian globalism. Shame to hear.

Fox steel tube with whangee handle, or whangee handle on beach stick? I'm inclined to go the later, even though I already have a stick brollie.

Stick everytime.
I received this MTO a few weeks ago:
Scorched Maple (solid) and Buchanan tartan.
Bolder than I’d usually go, but love it.

^ I agree.

I've already got the hickory navy. Thinking of getting either the black watch hickory, burgundy hickory, navy pindot whangee or navy whangee before the GST changes.
Blackwatch is great, burgundy & whangee is so classical I’d have trouble arguing against it.
I have a navy pin-dot (passotti, with red leather handle) never use it. Burgundy or BW, hard call. Though, burgundy is the more versatile - well, for my wardrobe.
