    It's a spongey/gauzy, medium-weight cotton for spring/summer. Collar is unlined.

    So where can i get it?or is it bespoke?

    I don't like how the blade flops out and makes it look like you're wearing a gigantic 5" tie.
    I know most people here don't like using the keeper, but this is why I do.

    ...

    Paul Stuart sportcoat
    Kent Wang blue gingham shirt
    Kent Wang navy pindot tie
    Kent Wang white cotton pocket square
    Thick as Thieves trousers
    Martegani double monks


    I think one of the fallacies of looking at fit pics is we critique things that would look wholly different in motion and live. Adjusting details for static pictures may lead to poor results in person. Thus the loose tie blade is not always going to look like a splayed out 5'' tie, etc.

    Nice fit for you, Kent. You are getting creative lately while still working within a style that is eminently "you."

    Very nice. You're sort of like the Russian version of Spoo. Wish we were still in the cold war era so we could see an IST66 Vs. SpooPoker showdown. Now that I think of it, we never see IST66 and Spoopoker in the same photo together. How do we know they are not one and the same. Like a double agent?

    Try a blue bandana for a pocket square next time. Great pants!

    I well remember that war which you name "cold". I was born in 1966 and I long lived in the country which was called as the USSR. But those years "cold war" was conducted by politicians[​IMG] . This war wasn't necessary to me. And I am assured, this war wasn't necessary Spoo. Probably in it the reason of our similarity?[​IMG]

    Brilliant! Your sartorial journey has truly been an exceptional evolution of refinement.

    The strangest things happen when one listens to the advice of others - even more so when their meaning is comprehended. Thanks, Tibor.

    In addition to not knowing how to tie a knot, let alone dress, I have questionable photo snapping skills.

    Well done, nice colors on you.

    Acerbic Ovine, your modesty is very becoming - and thanks for the comment.

    acridsheep -Feeling downright dowdy after yesterday's fit...

    After yesterday, a bit of dowdiness might be called for, Dr. Freud - you're back to Holdfast standards.

    Spoozy, God knows you march to your own drummer (sometimes, an entire drum corps), but you make it work for you. Keep it up - the natives here need your variations on a theme - keeps them awake.

    Glad you like. Shirt is Land's End Canvas slim fit (cheap, but surprisingly nice sport shirts). SC is Arnold Brant.

    Wish I couldve worn this tie with a different suit, but this is my only non-terrible option right now.... Panta ftw! Best tie I own!

    Liking this tie quite a bit; one from your new source or an older one?


    Thanks - Nope, this is RTW - Corneliani. I just discovered their ties and the quality is fantastic. If you have not tried any, you should. Very, very well made. This is a slubby silk, not quite shantung, not a tussah. It almost feels like chenille, which is kind of awesome. Always feels "wet" if that makes sense.

    Very nice.
