    I've ordered all of mine through NMWA. Greg can help you with sizing and you can MTO through them if they don't stock what you are looking for.

    But but but… it has patch pockets!

    Yeah, I hear you. I thought it would have been just bold enough, but I guess not.

    I couldn't make out the patch pockets in that picture (which is a testament to the pattern matching, I guess), but yeah.

    Looking good as usual Murl, but that vast expanse of grey is really crying out for a PS (I thut you were starting to get your hank on, no?)

    Plus one. Who is the maker, Pliny?


    Yes. He. Does.


    This is the best way to go imo.

    Thanks. A square would have been nice, but I would have only put it in for the photo....I wouldn't wear it to work. So whatcha see is whatcha get....but I don't disagree with you.

    I went squareless as well today. Feeling meh.

    Though also, if y'all haven't checked it out, the Frui tie (the folks who make the in house ties for BnTailor) group by is going forward. If we can get to 20 orders (not going to be a problem, I think), we'll get 35% off retail.

    Here's me today: the coat is herringbone tweed, the shirt's got a grid check/fine tattersall in blue and olive, and the trousers are charcoal flannel.

    Clags, I am ok with the tie, but I am not sold on the squared edge in that fit. I think no square was a very good choice though. The combo stands elegantly without one imo.

    I never really wanted a knit tie, but I just got one yesterday.....MonkeyFace recommended and it was cheap. I think I'll give it a shot tomorrow.

    Wonderful use of that Cappelli challis. Everything else is so subdued that even though the tie is a bit less formal the total package is coherent. I also like the scale of the stripes of the tie contrasting with the scale of the tie pattern. Grey-green-blue combo = [​IMG].
