    All of Vanda's offerings look great, but they're too wide for my taste and frame.

    Some contrast between the shirt and the tie, please.

    The Haberdasher Street (amazing how that worked out) is really good. Basically their sales section presented like the things in their Mayfair store.

    I wouldn't necessarily disagree. Though Social Sunday with the family not looking to be to much in anyone's face was the tack taken....

    I visited the Haberdasher Street factory shop last week during my visit to London. Nice setup and a decent selection. My only frustration was that they were not able to do VAT refund claim forms. If I had been thinking more clearly, I would've asked if they could ship it back home ex-VAT.

    FYI, Drakes ties are 40% off right now at Barneys. Happy hunting.

    They have an additional sale on this weekend at Haberdasher Street - ties are £35 or three for £90, pocket squares £20, knitwear £65 and £150 for cashmere, and lots of scarves from about £30 upward IIRC.

    Lots of good stock when I popped by on Thursday.

    I popped in today. No knitwear in my size, unfortunately, but did walk out with five ties...

    Walked off with 3 ties (a solid midnight satin, red on blue stripe grenadine fina, and a medallion print), a fair isle scarf and a silk/cotton summer scarf in light blue/white. What a great day.

    All sleeved knitwear left is in large sizes.

    Just received my size 40 (small) 4 ply shawl the other day . It's pretty amazing. I was in dallas for the day and unprepared for the freeze. The cardigan was sufficiently toasty.

    I got the navy

    Hmm visiting brother in ATX, casual birthday-graduation lunch. Probably more street than MC, I'll get a better pic another time (sweater weather permitting)...

    The scarf is one of the Drake ones from this season - my favorite!
