    Clag, I love the fit of all your clothes. Not slim, not baggy...just a perfect tailored fit. Jacket is awesome.

    yeah I'm quite happy with the top half of this jacket. bottom has a few issues that are fixable. problem is that with my current tailor, I can't trust for the next comission to look at least as good as this :(

    Showing how yellow ties are done! I'm of course biased... Looks great though. You got the last one of that tie.

    Mercer and Sons has a custom tailoring option; you can have them make you a shirt with the body of a smaller collar size (up to 2 collar sizes, I believe), and then add a 2 or 4 inch slim taper. In this shirt, I asked for a 15.5 collar with the body of a 14.5, and a 2" slim taper. It fits pretty good, though for next orders I'll ask for a 4" slim taper to get rid of a little extra cloth (I like my shirts slim at the waist).

    However, I don't have much of a chest-waist drop, which means for a V-shaped torso there might be still plenty of cloth. Mercers are suppossed to have a baggy fit anyways; if you can live with that, it's well worth it. The shirts are very well made and the collar roll is very nice.

    Collar rolls second to none IMO such generous points

    hows the cloth itself + stitching?

    The cream of their crop is suppossed to be the Oxford cloth button downs. I have one in the works. The one I'm wearing is just an ordinary end-on-end, although it certainly feels pretty good, and is looking better with each wash, becoming softer and easier to iron with no piling whatsoever. Only time will tell how it will hold up, but I have high expectations. The stitching is absolutely top-notch; everything is done by machine, but with a very high level of quality and finishing. As good as machine-made can get IMO.

    Oh yeah, I remember that post by Vox. Those ties are beautiful. I have a couple similar madders, one from Drake's and another from E.G. Cappelli (made with a silk Drakes is using too). I'm hoping to browse through some more when I visit Cappelli in October. Patrizio has added some madders to the website catalog, but I bet he's got more to choose from at his store.
    I love madders. [​IMG]
