London visit photos

Below are photos from my recent trip to London. I stopped by the London outpost of the Neapolitan tiemaker E. Marinella and decided to pull the trigger on a bespoke tie. There is no minimum for bespoke orders but they start at 110 GBP per tie or 20 GBP more than RTW and take about 2-3 weeks. I also picked up a compact umbrella with a solid wood handle, made not by the well-known Neapolitan umbrella maker Mario Talarico but by a firm in Milan.

Continuing the bespoke neckwear theme, I also stopped by Drakes, which offers bespoke ties at 125 GBP each (minimum order of 3). In the fall/winter season later this year, they will have RTW ties cut in shorter (140cm / 55 in) and longer lengths in a limited selection of colorways.
