    Happened to arrive in London the afternoon of the first day of the Factory sale. I only purchased 2 scarves, a knit hat, pocket square and shirt. Even though boxes of ties were available I didn't get any. If they would have had any knit ties I'm sure I would have purchased some.

    My wife bought herself a beautiful Fair Isle knit scarf. The colors are wonderful.

    Their main store in Mayfair is very nice and certainly worth a visit. It has a beautifully edited selection of unique colored ties, knitwear, jackets and shirts. The staff at both their main and factory store were very helpful and friendly. If you are looking for a deal go to the factory sale. But, if you are looking for something special be sure and visit the main shop.

    The Factory shop is open all-year-round, and has quite good value discounts, if you can find things you like. The actual sale with very steep discounts is only once per year, though.

    Lots of pics starting to flow in from Pitti showing their new designs. If you like that sort of thing you might follow them on Instagram.
