One of my two Frank and Oak OCBDs. Both shrank after washing. Now I wait to buy multiple items from a brand until I’ve washed the first.
The tie is a vintage foulard from Rich’s, which was one of the best men’s stores in Atlanta before it closed. Yesterday, Derek wrote on Put This On that foulards look best with suits, while repp ties look best with sportcoats. While I agree that repps don’t look as good with suits, I disagree that foulards don’t work with sportcoats.
