Wow Mr. Frank Wraith. This is the first time I like something of yours. Nice shoes.
Info on the tie and shooz Gerry!
Anyone had much experience with Whillas and Gunn?
The tie is Drakes cashmere and the shoes are C&J for Ralph Lauren Marlow wingtips
So sad. RIP one of the greatest mobster actors of all time.
Imma watch the entire box set of Sopranos... James Gandolfini was such a legend.
Where does your bambino weave sit in the spectrum of grenadine coarseness? How much closer to the fina weave is it, compared to the grossa?
It sure was. And I picked today to snag my nice new HC cashmere gloves in my coat zip and tear a bloody big hole in one of them!
First glance those shoes look awesome, second glance I notice the creasing and the lacing pattern
Aren't shoes supposed to crease?
Definitely closest to the fina, it's a smaller, tighter, more formal weave than the grossa. The bigger weaves seem to be very well represented already by the likes of Hober, wang etc so I don't have any plans do do the bigger ones at present. The best thing I've found with the tighter weave is no snags, which is an issue on the larger weaves.
With the new delivery (which may be here tomorrow if I'm lucky) will have re-stocks of the 5 current colours (navy, black, brown, forest and burgundy) and the new plum and silver all in the bambino weave.
Time to throw away the socks and don the too tight jacket. Pitti!
Good news - Canali on Macquarie St are having a 50% off sale now.
Bad news - It's mostly uninspired and boring as crap. Buyer needs to be shot.
Have a squizz if you'd like though.
