    Patrizio is one of the best if not the best tie makers I know of...it's a shame noodles had a bad experience...because he could really pick up some great ties for his wardrobe...

    Maybe noodles should be forgiving and give him another shot...

    He doesnt need a 2nd chance from me. He has plenty of happy customers. I am a pretty easy going guy but he ticked me off enough that I vowed never to do business with him ever again.

    I am in need of some more ties. I can't keep doing waywrns with the same damn ties.

    Anyways, I have great experiences with NMWA, Sam Hober, and Vanda when I contacted them.

    Tomorrow, I get to have my company profile picture retaken! Think I will wear my wedding suit.

    Noodles - Just buy 10 Hovers and stop worrying about ties for awhile.

    That takes all the fun away. Too many great ties from other vendors here....ET, Henry Carter, YHNT, Shibumi, etc.

    I'm quite sure it has been discussed but why not getting ties from @Henry Carter or mister @conradwu, mi estimado amigo Noodles? I love the ties I have from them.

    What do you guys think of this jacket? I was too tired to try it on so a stock photo will due for now...the lapel does roll as a 3-r-2 jacket does. However, due to how the jacket was packaged and shipped, what is a good method to get where the highest button is essentially masked by the lapel roll?

    (Chest and waist needs to be altered. Shoulder, sleeves, and length are pretty good IMO).

    Is the pattern versatile?

    I am relieved that the jacket is a navy, brown, cream color texture in person (from the stock photos it looked like black and blue). I actually really like it but I want to make sure my judgement is not jaded by the fabulous price I purchased for.

    Well, he'll be sure to have a picnic attack in a few months after realizing he only bought 10 new ties. Then pick another vendor and repeat. Within a year he'll have 40 or so new ties from various vendors. Problem solved.

    @gettoasty, assuming the photos other than the first two (which look completely different from the stock photos as may have been your point) are the most accurate depictions of the color, I like it and think you can do a lot with it. It may not be the most versatile jacket in the world but it is absolutely a lovely complement to a wardrobe and should be reasonably versatile.

    I really need more ties. I am wearing the same stuff too much. Tempted to get more Sam Hober but I need to look at other vendors.
