    Yeah. Unfortunately still missing from my wardrobe in wool, but I have a pair of chinos. I'll see if I can work on filling the void soonish!

    Am I right to assume that while narrow striped shirts are also formal, they are best used with solid jackets to avoid issues of scale?

    There was more than paisley on offer. :)

    It was an enjoyable evening. The Ring Jacket stuff was nicely made, but the cut would need some work to accommodate my non-flat ass. Lovely fabrics, and a very small arm scye. But pricey. $1300 for a jacket. I didn't try on any of the pants.

    Jim Ockert is clearly passionate about his store and the clothing business.

    Murl, you gotta come up next time and meet everyone.

    Noodlers!

    I'm going to houston on thursday for a few days for a conference. I'm going to be giving a talk at a conference, so it's a rare chance for me to don a suit. I have a suit bag for travel, so that's fine, but I'm not sure how to carry an SC or two along with it. I'm probably only going to wear the suit the day of my talk and wear an SC the rest of the time.

    How do you travel with this stuff?

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm sure there are ways to carefully pack them with plastic on them which helps to reduce wrinkling - and then of course you can simply press an item yourself or find a decent dry cleaning service to do it for you when you travel.

    You should be able to fit a second jacket in the garment bag, rtc.

    Put them in those dry cleaning bags and fold. They won't wrinkle.
