The clear out of the formal side of my wardrobe continues  :)

So we have 3 shirts (all with French Cuffs). Two are Adam of London tab collar and one DNA Groove button down with the larger collar & 2 button neck fastening.

All spot on for a 40" chest albeit these are slim fit and if you are still carrying some Christmas lbs you may want to hit the gym for a week or two  ;)

Collar size 16"

A plain pale pink and white from AoL and a pale pastel mauve/purple candy stripe for the DNA one.

All are immaculate condition from a smoke free home and I'll give them all a press before posting. The DNA one has been worn twice from memory and I can't even recall the last time the Aol's were taken out of the wardrobe.

Onto the the ties. 2 knitted silks ones by Crombie (their cheapest ties are around £120) this is the sky & navy bar stripe. The pink blue & white one is made in Italy but I don't recall the maker. The navy with narrow red & blue stripes was worn once to a wedding. It's acrylic or some other man made fabric but still looks great.

Then there a the 4 silk/stripe numbers. The paisley one is DNA Groove, the Green & Gold is by Ben Sherman and the pale blue/brown & cream one is by Peckham Rye. The red/blue/white stripe is from an unknown maker but does have a label on it.

Finally a pair of 100% black wool trousers from Adam of London. 34" waist 32" inside leg. Usual details...frog mouth pockets, side adjusters etc...but you can read more here of you need to : http://www.adamoflondon.com/aol_newshop/index.php?l=product_detail&p=42

So, prices:

All the ties are a tenner including postage, with the exception of the Crombie & Peckham Rye ones which are £15 each again with postage.

The Adam of London shirts currently retail at £50 plus postage but you can have the pair for £18 including postage (I'd prefer to sell as a pair).

The DNA Groove one would now cost about 70 euros plus postage from Spain. I'd like £25 including postage.

Finally the 100% wool Adam of London trousers, £85 new + postage or take mine for just £20 including postage.

If someone wanted the lot let me know and I'd work out a deal for you.

The AoL trousers are a lovely fit. Slim but no way skinny with a nice kick at the bottom:

A couple of measurements at the thigh & the ankle:

From this batch these are the ones left:

P1020559 by Steve Bolt, on Flickr

P1020561 by Steve Bolt, on Flickr

P1020556 by Steve Bolt, on Flickr

P1020554 by Steve Bolt, on Flickr

From top to bottom:
100% Silk from David Van Hagen, London

100% Silk from Ben Sherman.

100% Silk from DNA Made in Italy by a company based in Napoli

There is no label indicating the fabric on this Made in England Peckham Rye one, but looking at their website the cost would have been anything from £40 to £60 so definitely not a cheap fabric.
