    I voted for it but not yet sent my commitment for personal reasons that can hopefully be cleared very shortly. Stuck at 1 or 2 it needs some more support. ;) (where's that Uncle Sam pic when I need it...)

    PS: By the way, having seen your latest pic in the schneider jacket, it does look like you have lost weight.

    Thanks gents! It goes to show how much of a difference a good pressing can make. It drapes much cleaner now, and looks much more natural.

    I'm definitely in for one and am debating between the two check patterned SC's. I'm probably leaning closer toward the Drapers wool/silk/linen at this point, but none of those votes are from me just yet.

    That's pretty but a tat too civil for me. The large scale rust overcheck has my vote. If "loud" then outright. ;)

    Got mine the other day. It was Braddock's fit that inspired me. The difference between this and my one other Shibumi tie is like night & day; this one is hefty and robust, the other is thin and wispy. It is a beautiful tie, very richly colored.

    @Rudals if I may.... we deserve better pictures than that. In particular, the angle is really not helping. The jacket looks like it has a high buttoning point, whereas I know that it doesn't. In that picture alone, it looks too short, too tight in the chest, buttoning stance too high and shoulders are not very flattering because they look narrower than your hips. I suspect that a lot of this (especially the pear-shape issue) is because of the crotch level camera, a perspective that is only relevant to toddlers and well... you know...

    So I see Maffoons admiration for them and a DB suit debacle. I I also see that Rubinacci was/is a decent company. What else am I missing? Where's the TL;DR option?

    Greg,
    My apologies. The picture was taken as I was running out for lunch. I definitely was planning on doing a better pic.
