    and yet another difference between today's styleforum and the good ole days. A hall of fame poster would have worked "Tucks" into the response, Depends is the easy way out.

    I would like to confess that I have no idea what you are talking about.*


    (Except I think I can guess what "shart" means and I'd rather I didn't know)

    I own a Jort which is more or less the same as La Spalla to my knowledge. I am pretty satisfied with the shirring:

    Anyone know where B&Tailor gets their ties from? It's loud, but somehow I like it a lot. The donegal tweed jacket and light blue striped shirt are perfect as well. I really wish they'd make their way to London sometime soon.

    They carry a lot of Liverano and Fiori from Italy. Their house ties (which are sublime. absolutely nuts good) are from a small Korean brand called Frui. The owner's mother makes them. And they really are amazing. Just a bit too expensive for me. They are on par with the Tie-Your-Tie ties I've handled (which are also too expensive for me).

    That particular tie is Fumagalli 1891. Generally (though not always) ugly and can be had at significantly less than what B&Tailor sells them for off eBay.

    I like a lot of BnT's looks but that one is not doing it for me.

    The spring colored square with the wooly winter tie and the rough jacket?

    I think that jacket needs a bow tie.[​IMG]

    Thank you, Claghorn, really appreciate it. Ill have a look, as I generally like the ties they show on their instagram. When it comes to this look, I like all the individual items, but that's not how I would wear them.
    The tie I'd wear with a flannel navy blazer, the shirt with a navy suit, and the jacket looks awesome, but because it's grey donegal wool might be a bit harder to wear. Not a big fan of that square.

    Just did an ebay search for Fumagalli 1891. Those are some exceptionally ugly ties.
