    Yeah, so what's the deal with Thomas Mason? I picked up a Thomas Mason for J. Crew contrast cuff/collar shirt because I liked it and I saw someone else had something similar. Is Thomas Mason good in the SW&D scene or something? Pardon my ignorance...

    Anyone by any chance recognize this lettering for an identification of the maker?

    Soles and heels have been replaced and no other markings on the inside of the shoes.

    I am sure there are more informed guys that will chime in. I know very little about both but I believe the Mason brand shirts and chinos are completely different from Thomas Mason shirting. Mason is supposedly made in Italy and carries a fairly high price tag, but always seems to pop up on flash sale discount sites like Gilt. Thomas Mason IIRC is just shirting/fabrics. A lot of the higher priced fabrics on MTM shirt sites are Thomas Mason. The stuff looks and feels really nice, but I have never personally owned an actual Thomas Mason shirt.

    Yeah, there was a video from CNBC of Mickey Drexler from J Crew touring the Thomas Mason mill in Italy over here:

    so you go looking for a hermes tie, and all you find is 2 lousy Fendis, a Versace, and a pair of allen edmonds sanfords in 10d that look like they just came back from recrafting... all potentially available... i know y'all want pics...

    I think those are Churchs. Not positive, but looks similar to those I have seen.
    Just outside Hartford? Saw them last week if so.

    ***Flip question alert***

    Is it worth picking up a Versace tux? Single button, shawl collar, pleated, has this label (but not this garment; the label has VVV stitching, not machine):

    [​IMG]

    Only problem is the legs are short--32 waist but about a 28 inseam, at most. Jacket is 38-40 range. Pretty rare on the bay so not much help there.

    Alternatively, if anyone's interested I could proxy. Maybe someone wants to make shorts out of the pants and have a nice summer tux?:bigstar:

    Hmm...I'll have to do a comparison to the other Church's custom grades I've got sitting in my basement.
