    Wait, you smell that?

    Do you button all three buttons on a 3 button jacket, particularly a 3 roll 2?

    Is the blue gingham check tie in the video the same blue gingham check listed for sale here (3rd one down)?

    http://shoponline.drakes-london.com/...d%20weave.aspx

    The check in the video appears smaller than the check in the linked tie, but the linked tie is the closest match I could find on the Drake's website.

    K3? Explain. I assume the madders won't go on sale, so I had my eye on some blues:

    and some foulards:

    With Drakes tastes levels being so high, I could buy most of the ties on their site.

    Do people really not tuck in the tail through the keeper? I didn't realize/don't think it's "wrong" to do so...I mean sprezzatura and all is nice, but the tie is just sloppy when the keeper is not used.

    Never use the keeper.

    The bow ties - they say "Slide adjust sizing (one size fits all) hook and eye fastening so that the bow can be taken off leaving the bow tied if wished". So this isn't a pre-tied bow tie?

    BTW - ties are £55, bow ties £35. Was going to added the gingham and large check ties, but I have too many similar ones already. Added one tartan and a mix of others, but I have a feeling some will be cheaper elsewhere later.

    I see this message when I open the tie and bowties page

    This page is currently being updated. Please try again later today. Sorry for the inconvenience

    I can open the knitwear and other pages and there are no reductions there AFAIK
