    This.


    Go online and get an email or phone number to one of their UK stores and buy direct. They ship UPS to the US. Thats how I got my last few pairs of C&J.

    Y'up. Don't even blink when changing the nastiest diaper or getting thrown up on. I am going crack open a cold one to celebrate, though, when the youngest is finally out of diapers.

    Since we're on the subject of C&J, does anyone here have experience with the Barrington 2? They look great from the pics I've seen...

    Please throw me some tie recommendations (if you haven't already) for this suit. Thank you in advance.

    sorry. didn't mean to hijack, as I always seem to do.
    What last do you usually go for?
    I believe this shade of brown is good with light colored suits?

    Meaningful savings by buying in GBP vs. USD for one thing.

    per their website, YES.
    But like I said, there's a store in Georgetown that imports directly from C & J. I usually go there...only to look.

    No. Some retailers sell them as well. I know Barneys does. Issue is you are going to probably have less variety and, if it matters, Barneys has nothing in the G width.

    yes, that one on the mannequin will work. as will solid burgundy and brown. neats will also work well with that. its a pretty versatile suit as far as ties go, but why must you insist on navy on navy?


    this.


    and this.

    Noodles, here's a picture of a few Hobers and a Shibumi that I like with navy suits.

    I have some othe brown, avender/purple and yellow ties not pictured that I wear with the suit. Burgundy works as well.

    Noodles. It's a navy suit. Just about any tie goes with it.
