    Not sure about the suits (Canali appears credible) but the ties are predominately Bulgari, with the odd Hermes...

    Sneakerboy. City store would be best; Chaddy is just a pop-uo.

    I have two that I wear 2-3 times a week each in colder months. As previously states this is the 4th year of wear and while there are some signs they are totally fine, held shape and not much pilling from what I've noticed.

    I also like that they are thinner as they layer more easily and I don't sweat as much - they are not super thick or epicurean in that way.

    Someone needs to get that man into some @Henry Carter neckwear. Hey, they're both based in Canberra these days.

    What are everyone's thoughts on printed silk/wool scarves for winter. I'm looking to pick one up but there are slim pickings at the moment. HC did have some good options a while ago, now all seem to be sold out. Any alternatives?

    Drake's? You might also try Budd in London. They have a website, but sometimes stock in store differs so an email might be worth a shot.

    I might have 1 or 2 at the office that aren't on the website. I'll have a look tonight and PM you.

    Do you mean the scarves that are silk on one side and wool on the other or the scarves that are made from a wool/silk blend? My preference is for the latter because the pure silk side feels too cold to me. I like them because they are lightweight and warm enough for a Melbourne winter. They can work well with both casual jackets and tailored clothing.

    The only problem with wool/silk scarves is the price. HC had the best prices by far. Exquisite Trimmings is another option.

    Thanks for the tip Gerry, I'm thinking the wool/silk blend, rather than the wool backed version. Interested to see what secret stock HC has to offer.

    Just get a Barbour. With your age everyone will assume you're an extra on Doc Martin.
