  1. Nice! Mr. Vlagos (Sr.) is actually my cobbler. Amazing guy and first rate craftsman. Makes me laugh every time i’m in the shop.

    For the aficionado who understands that shirtmaking is an art and craft, Mercer & Sons still make The Real Thing: unfused, full-cut button downs with a perfect long collar roll in pure cottons and linens. Everyone else seems to have abandoned the craft and gone to fusing, short collar points,and no-iron fabrics. George Frazier must be rotating in his grave!

    Great suit and shirt, but I tend to wear knit ties mainly with heavier looking jackets, usually tweeds. I would substitute a black silk tie with large pink polka dots.

    Oh Ken, how could you!? Large pink dots with a Prince of Wales check!?
    I was just about to congratulate CC on the perfect choice of shirt and tie with such a jacket, little oleaginous creep that I am.

    Always nice to hear from you! But remember, you wear suits, I wear sportcoats. That’s a wool-silk blend jacket only. And pink dots on a pink shirt? Never. I used to wear a black with silver dots over a pink shirt, though.

    A wool-silk blend jacket in November!?

    David Mercer, I believe, was at St. Mark’s school with Frazier’s son, George 4, who is a friend of mine. Mercer is a great guy, and I wear his buttondowns regularly.

    Frazier”s writing and style had Duende.

    ‘Twas a pleasant day. Low 70s all this week. The heavy stuff is for winter, and it’s not winter yet. Since I’ll be wearing flannels and tweed (and five more layers) until I’m sick of it, I try to put it off as long as possible.

    Fair enough, Christian. I’m happy because I can finally wear flannel and tweed after a miserable muggy summer and fall.

  11. David Mercer makes an excellent shirt, and is the kind of person you really WANT to give your business to.

  12. Thanks to global warming, tweed season may never arrive.

  13. Shame I can’t buy it at the moment. Maybe next time.

  14. Nice to hear about Bert Pulitzer. I have a light grey hopsack blazer by him with crested buttons. Very trad. Thanks

  15. Nice digs, as they kids says.

    All women like it when you talk derby to them.

    I love club collars; Unfortunately in Italy are not populars.
    Great shirt!

  18. Very nice shirt—I’d like to see more Oxford cloth without the buttondown collar.
