    This is where sf gets a little silly. Like for example some people here telling quality of shirts from a photo, from a manufacturer they don't even have in their country, probably never seen a shirt from them in their life. These are not low quality shirts, sure they are better things to buy and I will buy them when I can afford them. I can appreciate the advice about the ties though.

    very nice, and thanks for the comments on the stores-- I noticed in past posts that the typical kiton cut seemed a bit longer and bulkier on your frame, so hoping the trimmer cut is a good match for ya. I saw a new shirt model for mtm in NYC in April, slimmer cut and great looking collar, but the try-on had to be shipped somewhere before I got a chance to return and try it on.

    Just rec'd an email from Saks: the kiton black label suit and Isaia shirt just arrived!

    I was in Rome yesterday and stopped at the Ferrari store. They had hand rolled silk PS's that were actually quite tasteful. I thought of Spoo, then I thought that it might be a bit gauche, then I thought "f*ck it, if I had a Ferrari I'd wear one." Who cares about gauche in a Ferrari?

    it's a 40reg Milano model, but I gotta see if I can get to storage in DC area in July or August. current inseam on all the zegna and RLPL suits I'll be downsizing is about 29.5", with maybe an inch or two to lengthen.

    Received this black grenadine from J Press today. I haven't been this disappointed in a clothing purchase in a long time. In addition to the tie being damaged, something went wrong during construction because there's a large visible line running down the front of the tie that's created by improper pressing/construction of the lining. It's hard to imagine that this could have passed quality control, much less go unnoticed by the person who boxed it up. Looks like I'll go back to paying 1/2 as much for Chipp grenadines that have served me well in the past.
