Haha there's some truth to that! By the way, great collar in your photo above. Seems a great cutaway (though I like mine just slightly taller in front). Who's the maker on your shirts -- or on that shirt in particular?
Do any of you fine folks have photos of the Indigo Matka in action? Natural light a plus! I'm trying to see how much color depth/variegation there is in the fabric as I consider summer-weight blue ties. It's been around for a year, so there must be some in addition to those on the Vanda blog.
Thanks -- great thoughts on this. Glad to hear it's that smooth. I just have a thing about fuzzy ties in the summer, so I was concerned about the cashmere. It's a gorgeous tie. I might go for the green one, as I'm really looking for a new green-color summer-weight tie. In the blue category, the Wool-Linen-Silk Windowpane is the one that's caught my eye... though I really have way too many blue ties as it is.
Another note of congratulations! That must have been quite the challenge, and I commend you for it. FWIW like @Roy Al I also think you look better with wider collars as opposed to the relatively compact BD you're wearing in the photo you provide. I have what I think is a fairly similar face (narrow-ish and tall) and I wear cutaways/spreads or large BDs, like Mercer's. And if you do like OCBDs or button down collars on dress shirts, I highly recommend Mercer.
