ramosrm3 asked: Love the blog Uncle B. Question for you though, do you find that Meermin's, specifically the double monkstraps, run a full size or a half size big? Say for instance, I am a 10 in the Alden tassel loafer (Aberdeen last) would I be a 10 for Meermin? Cheers!
My monks seem to fit fine, but I know some have reported sizing issues with Meermin in the past. One of the best descriptions of this can be found on my friend Maximinimus’ blog. Check it out.
mschroederjdllm asked: Love the blog. Question about your Drakes ties - do you order them from Drakes directly through their website, or do you have a source here in the US? I am having trouble finding an ecommerce site based in the US with a good stock if their ties. Thanks.
I order my Drake’s ties through domestic and non-domestic routes. I have ordered from Drake’s online shop, Exquisite Trimmings, Mr. Porter, Gentleman’s Corner, Barney’s, Carson Street Clothiers, and A Suitable Wardrobe. The store’s highlighted in bold are all domestic options. If you can’t find what you want there you will need to go overseas. I have no reservations about doing that and if there is really a tie that you want, you shouldn’t either.
I hope this helps.
AMI Wool Cotton Blend Trousers - I don’t exactly know why, but these caught my eye. I could see wearing them dressed up with a cream or tobacco linen jacket or casual with a white polo and white Supergas.
Hemmed to no break, of course.
What I Wore Today - A Hint of Pink
Pink is a great color to wear from time to time, but most men overdo it. Just the other day I came across a young man wearing a black suit with an ungodly bright pink shirt. I personally prefer paler pinks like the shade found in this Christian Kimber pocket square. It is subdued enough to not look out of place during these colder months, but colorful enough to add a little playfulness and brightness to an otherwise standard combination of navy and grey.

Hey Uncle Beebo, How does that Kamakura cutaway/spread compare to a washed white suitsupply shirt?. I know I’ve heard that there is more value in a Kamakura shirt. Also can you speak to the collars too in terms of softness (which I highly value)
