    Easy fix at the tailor. I've done this twice now. :p

    Yeah, I'll take it to a local dry cleaners and see what they can do (they have a part time tailor).
    One month away from my wedding and I am really trying to get in shape but this is a discouraging sign.

    @luv2breformed
    Can you summarize everything you noodled thus far in February? I think we've both gotten some great solid help from this thread.
    Here's mine.

    Very difficult to go wrong with ties from Gerald. He and Diana are pretty awesome.

    I don't recognize the last two noodles. But all are excellent choices.

    Thanks, I have great mentors in this thread, include you. [​IMG]
    The last 2 are from Turnbull & Asser. I really wanted to have a charcoal grey in my staple. Was going to go with a grenadine but went with Twill. The second one was a no brainer and it will replace this $40 tie below.

    Thanks for feedback. Actually I think the points lie flat with tie/without jacket as well. Only w/o tie and fully buttoned do they float. It does look odd I agree.

    Thanks for the thoughts on the sport coat. Much appreciated. I will have to give it the try-on test and see if I can make it work. If I decide not to keep it, it's a 42L Zegna Roma cut.

    Rudals is going to have something EPIC to post early next week or so.

    I will leave it to him to do the big reveal. :D

    This just in. I can select 1 of Henry Carter's sale ties (any style) to add to my order of silk knits. What should I choose? I am leaning towards to chocolate cashmere knit.

    Also, is the silver/beige knit too light? Thanks.
