    I've got a couple of those knit ties with the old label as well. They seem quite good quality wise. there were heaps of them down at the DFO moorabbin outlet the last time I was there. They also had lots of pants with new stock coming in quite regularly.

    Hi all

    Just received a tie from SF'er GShen's Singapore-based Vanda Fine Clothing.

    Untipped and unlined. Six-fold. Huddersfield Wool.

    Personally, I think it's gorgeous, and I heartily recommend Vanda as a player to watch.

    Here is the tie (as taken from an interview with Gerald at Put This On (http://putthison.com/post/12927896737/vanda-fine-clothing):

    And again, this time with my sharkskin P Johnson:

    Unfortunately, they've sold out of just about every tie on their e-store, but here's hoping they put some new merchandise up soon.

    I have one of Gerald's Vanner silk 6-folds from pre-Vanda days, and it's very nice. Seems like a really nice guy too so a venture worth supporting.

    Hey guys, what are some basic rules for coordinating pocket squares with the rest of an outfit? All I know is to not match it to the tie.

    Also, just had 3 ties delivered from Sam Hober [​IMG], the first of many orders no doubt.

    Never seen it in Australia. RL Collins St told me it was unavailable here and were amazed to know I was wearing an RLPL suit.

    Trentington, you don't. No disrespect to 'some one', but don't buy JL at full price, at clearance price, or even if someone is paying you to wear their stuff.

    The only thing reasonable about JL is

    I'm sorry, I don't know the end of that sentence.

    *Edit: Let me explain - JL clothing isn't particularly well-made or well thought out; though in and of itself that's not a problem. Clothes from K-Mart, for example their suiting don't tend to be the most wonderfully made or constructed garments; however, they don't sell them at JL prices. JL sells jackets cut far too short and made in the way that one would find at a street tailor in South Asia for far too much. Just my opinion, but I'm sure on a forum called Style Forum, I'll have many who agree with me.
