    Jason I'd love to see you doing a 'classics' series of solid twill ties in standard (3.5in) widths in various colours, and keeping them in stock longer term.

    I was twiddling my thumbs as to whether to go, so thanks for the heads up. I will also save $ for HK/Osaka/Paris end of the year.

    Not much to see at Harrolds besides the foxy female staff. The Tom Ford stuff was quite subdued and dull. Loads of Harrolds-brand dinner suits (peak lapel, single button) for $750.

    There was one nice Caruso winter 3-piece suit that looks awesome. Navy, in a light flannel (95% wool, 5% cashmere). Size 52, drop 7.

    I don't bother with Harrolds anymore these days.

    Looks pretty darn good other than slightly short sleeves. Anyone checked out the new pure linen navy jackets in RL yet? They are gorgeous and gorgeously expensive ($999).

    I've thought about this but if I do it they'll be stocked at 3.25 I'd say, that width seems to satisfy a larger portion of people. I still like to try and turn over most of the stock seasonally though, but yeah basics like navy, maroon I'm happy to hold longer term.


    also though about this but my plan moving ahead is to have more of what I'm doing the following season sampled (rather than have a few sampled and most as swatches) and now I'm doing all of my photos in house put them up a few weeks before they will be ordered giving anyone the chance to pre order at any width/length they want for no extra charge and a small deposit. That way if anyone wants say a 7cm one it works the other way too. I still reckon that 8cm is the sweet spot between slim and larger, but I'm certainly keen to hear any feedback that suggests otherwise.

    Would anyone like to purchase a brand new with tags Uniqlo Premium Linen Navy jacket off me? It's a size L, comes with patch pockets and is quarter-lined with no shoulder padding. Very soft, lightweight and will be awesome for the warmer months ahead.

    Possibly, if you could post the measurements that would be good thanks.

    *edit Never mind actually, upon reflection wrinkles bother me too much to wear linen!

    Measurements and a pic would tempt me. Or just link to it online if you know which one.

    Thanks for the feedback on shirts - I will give MyTailor a crack.
    Gotta say I'm jealous of the 15 PJohnson shirts - that's approximately $3500 I can't justify :) Awesome haha.
