What Ben Wore

I am so happy when one of my Canadian customer's shares insights as to how we assembles his clothes. You may remember Ben Pearson writing in about his Madras jacket in Vancouver. Well, below I tried to re-create the outfit he explained to me last week that he put together. I hope I did it justice.

Hello Le Noeud Papillon,

As you can well imagine, I consider myself to be something of a menswear devotee. But I find that it's rare that I come up with an outfit that I truly feel proud of.

Today was one of those days. I wore a dark burgundy suit -- quite far from the norm, which I like. I felt like indulging myself, so I paired it with a light grey Canclini shirt from Camiseria Burgos in Madrid, complete with sterling silver collar stays. 

For my neckwear I chose your superlative Antoni bow, which I have adored ever since I got it. And my pocket square I confess I've forgotten the name of, but it was your navy with white piping number (I chose to hide the piping on this occasion). To continue the theme of opulence, I wore a pair of charcoal cashmere socks. 

Now, what could truly complete such an outfit and really take it from good to great? The Everett scarf. I've been dying to try it out ever since I acquired it a couple months ago, and Nicholas, I have to tell you: it is surely one of the finest things I own. I have some things that are more expensive, some even rarer (though I know you made but a handful of scarves), but nothing as prestigious. Wearing it, I felt like I could have knocked out Mike Tyson in his best day. It's just such a great feeling -- and that's why I care so much about this subject.
