I bought two Chipp ties (one from SF, a grenadine, another off of eBay, matka silk) and I'm gonna pick them up later today. Time to see what all the fuss is about!

I reached out a couple of weeks ago to inquiring about a blazer, Paul said to go to Izzy and LS Clothiers in NYC and just ask for something like the Chipp style, and they could sort you out.Sad. Too bad there isn't another generation to take over the business.
The tailoring side has been de-emphasized for at least a decade as far
as I can tell. I used to be a customer for MTM and RTW in the 80s and
the 90s. When I moved to CA it was no longer practical, not getting to
NY regularly. I still have some jackets and a suit, only one of which still
fits. Their more fitted model with two vents worked perfectly for me.

I think LS uses a number of MTM factories for various fits, including H. Freeman in Maryland, who does have a stock 'trad' cut.
