I got my navy/white rugby polo.

Very well thought out design choices for collar. It felt floppy in my hand, but wearing it, it maintained its shape quite well and was very comfortable. Slightly higher collar band would be nice.

It did require a bit of fussing to get into place under a sports coat, but seemed to stay there. We'll see how it does with a full day's wear.

Any plans on expanding the colour range for polos and rugbies?

Somebody speak on the wool/silk squares please.
I just ordered 4 of these I think so I'll let you know my thoughts when they arrive.

Actually I do have a question about them-- wool/silk blend squares can I toss them in the wash in a small garment bag (like I do with my cloth masks) and then air dry or is that too harsh?

Unless you’re using them as tissue, I can’t imagine the need, but I’d be stunned if they could handle a wash (even without spin) without becoming severely compromised.
No tags on KW (excellent choice, imo), but I’d feel safe saying they’re spot or dry clean only.

Figured as much. But I didn't want to look silly bringing a bunch of squares to the dry cleaner if it wasn't necesary.

Considering grabbing two six fold ties. Anyone that could speak to the overall weight and interlining? Are the ties hefty or "air-y"?

I have these two in mind:

The herringbone pattern looks discrete enough, that they could pass for solids from a distance.

All our ties are on the hefty side and tie an excellent knot

New ancient madder ties.

Should I call them big paisley and small paisley? Seems a little inelegant.

I just received a couple of pocket squares: Taurus Orion & Chambray Grey (looks more blue than grey to me). I haven’t read this entire thread, but if anyone wants a mediocre iPhone pic of them in the wild, I’ll post them once I wear them next.

$100 shoe clearance

We're discontinuing all of our shoes (except sneakers), and discounting them by $100. This means we won't be restocking them. When they sell out, they'll be gone forever.

While our shoes are superb, have received excellent reviews, and are some of the best value-for-money on the market, they just take up too much space in our warehouse.
