    Not so much the thickness, but the lopsideness of the FIH in the pic. Hence my suggestions of the alternative knots.

    Personally, I always have problems "balancing" up a FIH, but perhaps that is due to lack of skill on my part. Not quite ne plus ultra yet.

    I do not know the tie thickness, but I very much agree that the windsors are not appropriate for thick materials.

    I agree.

    EDIT: Haha, just realised Jas has started with "Disagree I'm afraid" so I thought it best to clarify - I agree with Jas re: the 4IH knot being the best option.

    Just caught up with GerryNelson for lunch.

    He was wearing his new PJohnson commission, with a Borelli shirt, Vanda tie and Carmina shell boots. He looked as dapper as ever!

    I don't know about that. I think the writer was just trying to point out the differences between made to measure and (good) bespoke. Because there is quite a difference in the end.


    Thanks. I wasn't sure if he still did.

    Oh, of course there is a difference. That's not what I was saying. I just felt that the tone used to describe Patrick's offering was critical, and I think it portrays his customers as being akin to fashion slaves.

    You know there is a difference and so do I. But does the average reader of the Sydney Morning Herald know the difference? Likely not.


    I didn't read it as such, thebrownman.

    Yes though I think the ones I saw are that yellowish tan colour. There are the stowe type shoes as well.

    Why stop at a double? I occasionally do a triple with my unlined, and that still looks quite a small knot :laugh:

    Meermin double monks just arrived this afternoon. Already took them down to Rekaris to get toe taps. Can't really comment on fit yet, but can say that they look great.
