Long overdue, but here's our first take on a diamond point bow tie. Max width is about 2.375". Let us know what you think!
@applky, do you mean the far right? We've named the colours Burgundy, Chocolate, Navy and Olive from L-R - it's hard to photograph dark colours accurately without studio light so take the colour impressions now with a pinch of salt. We've done the Navy version before actually - it's the same one Spoo posted here awhile ago! Also, great news finally - the matka samples have arrived and we're very pleased with them. The bolts of fabric should arrive here by next week, and...
^No but it should show up within the next 2 days or so
Very, very nicely worn, @Simplicio! Good news - restocks of our classic wedding silks have just arrived, together with the oft-requested solid shantungs. In four shades All four shades will go up on the website next week, but if you can't wait, just drop us an email to order one.

I was under the impression that they were just weaving us samples for approval, but they've gone ahead with production and the 'samples' will be cut from the actual production pieces. We're told bad weather etc, etc, is causing the delays, but we should have the samples in mid next week. If the colours are OK (our fingers are crossed), they'll send us everything right away and we should have the ties sent...
^^ Thanks! Nope, the fabrics from our recent trip will take another month or two to be delivered. Most of the italian weavers take a month off in August, so things probably won't arrive till they're back in action. Also, we've ordered more of the black-white silk houndstooth from Japan
Let's all calm down and look at our new ties, OK? Silk/linen from John Cooper, probably from the 80s: Printed silks - the two furthest to the right are new:
