    Just received my Ischia cardigan, holy crap it's awesome. Nice and substantial, soft and heavy. As I assumed (and my wallet feared), I'm officially an Eidos fan - @NickPollica , still no luck finding a European retailer? (and/or: @gdl203 , you guys offer international shipping, right?)

    I had previously not realized how great the eidos ties are. I wish they were a little wider, but still pretty awesome.

    Just picked up an Eidos tuxedo to wear to a black tie wedding, the shantung silk facings are unbelievable in person. I am looking for a shirt to wear with it and went by the new Caruso store in NYC (unbelievable if you haven't been yet), the brand is under new ownership and they are doing higher end detail and finish work now. I was contemplating getting a sea island fabric turndown collar shirt with thinner swiss pleats. My only concern (other than the price!) is that it has french cuffs and not barreled cuffs.

    I never really liked wearing cufflinks as they seem too flashy for me, are french cuffs necessary for black tie or is barreled cuff acceptable? If it should be cufflinks, any ideas on who supplies some understated and classy ones?

    Many thanks, I really appreciate it.

    If the front is pleated definitely go french cuff. As for links, try Kirby Allison, Monsieur Fox, and Kent Wang (there is a wide variety in price here).

    You need a shirt that takes studs - can be French cuffs (doubled) or single cuffs (more formal), never barrel cuffs. So you need to buy a set of studs and links, not just cufflinks

    @NickPollica - are there any plans to introduce wider lapels on upcoming DB jackets?

    Thanks everyone! Greg is a fly front not acceptable with black tie? I suspected the advice received on the cuff links but I was under the impression fly front/concealed buttons are acceptable. Thanks again much appreciated.

    @NickPollica

    Any chance you've good shots of the cotton PoWs Bloomindale's has in your own fits? They unfortunately have only one shot of the tiee rolled up, which is unfortunate. Both look nice but I'd like to get a good pic of the design with tie unrolled.

    Cheers.

    I see a lot of people doing this these days but its much more of a "fashion" thing. My advice is to go with the a white spread collar shirt with a white pique bib, removable buttons for studs and french cuffs. I'd recommend ours but they aren't carried by anyone currently. That said, you can make a great one with Proper Cloth for a good value.
