The best part of Kent Wang's is that his grandmother in China hand finishes them.

The top one is beautiful - it irons well and is a good size. I use those for my functional hankies and I use this one for my pocket hankie because I like the corded style:
With the discussion of color I thought it may be a good time to post something I’d been noodling on.
10 years ago we had a family friend that was a color consultant. For a gift she gave me a free color consultation. This is in her opinion of the colors that look best on me and should be my color pallete.
I’ve found this quite useful and easy to implement in my casual wardrobe in the past.
Now as I get into CM I’m trying to figure out how I may use this color chart. Some of the conclusions I’ve drawn are for suits there are some navy and grays that will be better for me, for ties there are some browns, greens and burgundies that are better for me as well.
What gets me noodling is what about other colors like the purples or pinks in my color pallete? Is it that there is just no room for these in CM? I was specifically mainly thinking of ties.
Purples and pinks, as far as ties, are I think pretty common in the UK. Less so in the US. What sorts of ties are common, in terms of color, do you see in Morocco?
Another day! Today we have:
Suit: Kiton (cashmere)
Tie: Brioni (vicuna - close up added)
Shirt: local shop
Shoes: John Lobb
The suit is so light it doesn't feel like you are wearing anything!
Morocco you do see some dark purple. I was in Colombia prior to Morocco and everyone is in pinks and purples.
That is terrible. I actually dont own any white linen. I have one white square, because really thats all I need. Its cotton Kamakura and I loves it.
So I guess Eliod's maid is out of a job?
How does one ruin a linen hank, let alone multiple linen hanks? Did she use them as rags?
+1 to Kent Wang. I will probably pick up a second this year (the natural looks good in theory)
Sex rag? Ew gross!
Putting them in the washing machine with some new coloured items. Then trying to fix it with bleach. Result: a nice psychedelic pattern of brownish circles in varying shades and shapes. And the odd hole here and there....
Sounds very Pitti, actually.
Already in the bin. It did look a bit like those bleached hippie jeans, indeed... Perhaps I should have kept them
