Good to know, thanks for the info!
Anonymous asked: Hey I want to buy a new knit tie or two but prefer 3.25" width. As a guy with broad shoulders who generally wears suits with wider lapels, most knit ties took a bit silly. Can you recommend a there I could buy a wider knit tie?
Anon, you must be reading my mind. I love knit ties, but because of my broadness (fatness) I also have been on the lookout for 3.25” knits. Luckily for us our dreams are about to be realized. I have it on good authority that The Knottery will be releasing knits of this size in the coming weeks. Get your wallet ready.
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.
