    @New Shoes1 I've got nothing but good to say about my HC ties. Better still an AV to be lauded for all the right reasons :slayer:

    Noodles will be fine. He apparently needs jackets with a slimmer trouser, so he'll probably be doing more pre-orders and things like that.

    I have another strategy which is to not visit the store in the first place despite the enticements of a sale 'preview'.

    Unless, of course, I actually need to purchase something, which is becoming a rare occasion.

    Thanks. Was trying to channel a stitchy/murl fit. Will post more on the visit but wow, it was a lovely coat. This was a 48 so too small for noodles.

    I can't remember if it was in this thread that we discussed the RL Marlow and I said that I didn't care for PTBs. Well, this just happened...

    Beautiful. That is one of the few shell plain toe bluchers that I would wear.

    I dislike PTBs. One broke into my house and killed my favorite grandmother/plant. Poor grandma. Socks. (Millennium hand and shrimp)

    As far as Henry Carter--they are fantastic. Plus Jason is a guy worth buying from just generally.

    I'm really pleased with them. I'm waiting for my third HC tie to arrive. The knot I can tie with them comes out great. The one in the picture looks fantastic! The ties were over my expectation.

    Plus Jason gives a great customer service. [​IMG]

    excellent kop. will be perfect for your casual fits.


    well, for those who like ages shell, the wrinkles are part of the appeal, for those who dont, the wrinkles are a turn off. im ambivalent, but i have the wingtips so there is pretty minimal wrinkling.
