ASW store this week, starting with Michael Drake's wool and silk pocket squares in several colorways of a paisley and a floral design ($65). Each is a natural with tweed or flannel jackets and the advanced dresser may pair them worsteds as well. In addition to the squares, Drake's has provided a new evening bow tie, a cream silk scarf and a reissue of a gray cashmere four in hand with maroon bar stripes that sold out quickly when I offered it last year.There are quite a few new odds and ends at the
There are also a couple new items on the shoe care front, including the leather-trimmed mahogany shoe care box full of Saphir products in the photo ($275). The box makes it easy to introduce a deserving client or family member to the world's best shoe care products. And check out the new rosewood shoe horn.
Expected this coming week are a later-than-planned shipment of Albert Thurston braces (I only offer braces with hand-sewn ends and that company has but one over-taxed person who can sew them). And there are unlined wool neckties; silk, cashmere and merino scarf designs and still more knitwear on the way too.
Finally, four of E&G Cappelli's lined sixfold necktie silks in summer colors are reduced 40% for clearance. That is a a reduction of $78, which makes some of the world's best ties relatively affordable. There are only a couple of each so interested parties should strike quickly.
I hope to see you at the store.
