    ^ Those are G&Gs.

    what, you mean like customers that buy shit???[​IMG]

    [​IMG] they have plenty of those! I meant...

    No, he means "20% off for one weekend only" sales.

    that. Although I can see now how it could have been misunderstood.

    Hi SP, sorry, unfortunately not.

    Unfortunately nothing!! Good for you that you dont need to! I was just curious.

    Makes me happy too.

    Oh my, I'm going to spend so much when I'm back for Christmas. I've booked my flights!

    Guys @ The Armoury - I'll be the guy who's in there as much as you are over the Christmas period. [​IMG]

    The translation calls it a cotton-wool hopsack (I think!- or just a cotton hopsack?).

    I have a cream half-lined wool hopsack jacket (an old Dunhill), and the fabric looks very similar. Quite good for hot weather.


    is this the jacket?

    Looks good there, but I can't make any sense of the sizing chart at all. A size 42 is a 71cm (27") chest?[​IMG]



    That's a Sou Sou pocket square.

    I bought a couple of Sou Sou squares in cotton from SP. They fit in well with an HK/summer aesthetic; there's a sort of rawness to them which I like.

    A quick question on the Drake's silk prints at The Armoury - are they the same width as the ties on the Drake's website, 8cm, or are they wider?

    Unfortunately, I find 8cm to be a bit narrow and I'd really prefer ties that are a bit wider - but I love the Drake's patterns.

    Thank you very much.

    I think they offer them in 7cm and 9cm, but I could be wrong.

    You're right. WW Chan has Drakes ties in 8cm config though.

    It's a refreshing business model and I hope it catches on. Especially the "good honest prices" part.

    I wonder why so few stores worldwide take this approach. Maybe it only really works for ties, pocket squares, and other accessories. The inflated retail price + end of season sale model may be essential for RTW clothes - considerations of seasonality, price discrimination, attracting new customers, etc.

    The Armory just got a mention on one of GQ's 10 Essentials list, from Christopher Bastin. I assume it has already been mentioned in this thread, but congrats!
