    I believe, the “real” Belgian loafers are still (and so they should be) made in Belgium, hence the name. And the sole supplier for Belgian loafers which are produced in Belgium (Bruges to be precise) is the store Belgian Shoes in New York, which was founded by Henri Bendel (“You’re the top, you’re a Bendel bonnet”), in the 1950s. (Available in London at Nicky Haslam in Pimlico.)

    Next up at Pitti was my quest to find affordable grenadine ties. It is part of my plan to bring affordable but high quality products to those in the UK, even though we have to pay the 20% VAT, I want the prices to be on par with those that other countries are paying/charging.

    With this maker, I think I've achieved it. Who makes the ties will stay a secret for now, but they are handmade in Italy and make ties for some top brands.

    Pricing will be around £45 (plus shipping - free in the UK) - They will be lightly lined, silk tipped and with a fancy bar tack, these were points that were specified by myself. They will be available in 2 widths (8cm & 9cm). Delivery is expected at the end of July.

    These ties will be going along side a bespoke grenadine tie offering which is a collaboration between Exquisite Trimmings and Passaggio Cravatte, but more about that later!

    I think that's a question. The answer is yes.

    Not for a (long) while sorry. I have a list of purchases that take preference! My apologies.
