    I think so, though last I saw any, they were made in Italy rather than the UK. In any event, I have never seen any wovens like yours, only prints. Yours is excellent and it is nice to see someone post the occasional nice-looking divergence from the new orthodoxy.

    stitches, in my very humble opinion, your shirt/tie combo would have been awesome with a navy suit, either solid or with a big pattern (subtle POW, spaced pinstripe...)

    Great jacket, though I'd prefer a more definite 3-roll-2 or 2 button version. Just my preference.

    Thanks - it's definitely a roll-2, just the way I have my arm raised to hold the phone/camera makes it looks like the roll is higher than it is.

    I agree - great tie :slayer: . I think H&B were bought by some Italian company a few years back. I think they still produce ties under that brand name. Used to be one of my favourite tie makers..
