Hey guys,

Can anybody recommend a good source for a solid navy tie? Drakes doesn't seem to go beyond 8cm. I know about cappelli and Hober, but was wondering if there are any OTR options from a high-quality maker.

Thanks in advance!

Have you considered Turnbull & Asser? There are some 9.5 navy ties, for instance, this one:

That's a great one, but was looking for a repp. Anybody here wear satin ties to the office? Serious question.

Will at ASW used to recommend satin ties for evening events. I bought one and found it difficult to wear.

Fair enough. I remember David Reeves said it was doable, but I haven't seen too many successful examples.

Another Drake’s outfit today. Pants don’t really work with the shirt and jacket but oh well.

Big pro tip:

TheRake just dropped their latest Drake’s offerings, including a really nice tropical coat with leather details.

But here’s the kicker: it’s selling for $795US. But if you change it to Canadian dollar, it comes out to $637US.

But there’s more! Add the 10% off code, and it’s only $570 US.

happy hunting (or arbitraging).

Thanks in advance! Does anyone have a recommendation on where to find more affordable socks that are in the same colors Drake's offers? For example, the sock/color below:

Try uniqlo

Seconded. The material won't be the same and they don't have 'over the calf' socks like Drake'sbut they have a ton of colours and they are very affordable. I'm wearing a pair right now :)
