    New Borrelli shirts, all in desperate need of darts.

    Currently in that bittersweet limbo after ordering some new items, but awaiting them to be made, so living vicariously by reading a bit of this thread in the meantime. Should keep me sated for a while. [​IMG]

    On order:

    - MTM trousers from Ede & Ravenscroft: a charcoal grey flannel from H&S Viceroy, and a just-darker-than-RAF-blue tweed from their Sherry Tweed II book. I think the Sherry Tweed II book may technically be jacketing, but the cloth in question feels sturdy & tight enough to be fine for trousers too. Same style as the mid-grey flannel ones I'm wearing today.
    - Rayner & Sturges bespoke shirts, ordered via Sartorial Executive: an Alumo blue OCBD, an Alumo lilac stripe oxford with a normal collar, and a dark blue checked Acorn Grange BD. Plus getting an old Thomas Mason blue end-on-end shirt from them recollared & recuffed.

    Debating keeping it. Its too similar to a Brooks Brothers one I already have. The leather is so much nicer, but it still feels... redundant. Have I gone mad?

    Received 3 excellent (and rather soporific) ties from Sam Hober a couple of weeks ago.

    Also, after seeing the Vanda tie above, I just remembered that he had restocked the lapel pins. I just ordered a few of those (pic from his blog).
