Wow that's a pretty massive difference.I would consider that similar to a whole size difference.
Question for those of you more experienced tie makers/wearers. How much leeway would you consider appropriate to allow for variance when ordering a bespoke tie/ i.e I understand if you ask for 9.5cm width you should not expect exactly 9.5cm. but what should be an acceptable range? 9.4-9.6cm? 9.2-9.8cm? 9-10cm? 8-11cm(!)? etc etc
I was thinking more about fellow SFers in the same city.  I have already organized a couple of shipments with other members where one person orders and then distributes the product to everyone else on receipt. You could arrange a purchase of more than just trees. See if local friends are considering other amazon purchases. Or find people here and buy from somewhere else. Where you might find someone interested in some shoes/ties/shirts/etc and find an online store with a...
@Testo Where do you live? It might be an idea to try and organize a group buy to save on shipping. 
@Kira Yeah you don't want to wear low rise with suspenders. Something I really wish my tailor would have told me.

Exquisite trimmingS has a sale atm. Works out to about $40 half of which is shipping so its a great deal if you need to buy other stuff as well or a few pairs.
Yeah still a beautiful tie. Your eyes are good. I can barely see the run even after having it pointed out. (not that its any excuse to be there)
+1Best fitting suit I own. Even better than my PJ one oddly.
First attempt at rocking a non white square at work. Is it passable? I went for my only non silk tie that wasn't brown or green. I may have had something a little easier in silk. is texture or colour more important to take into account? Edit: note due to awful iPhone pic the colors are wrong. Tie is about a mid grey. Brown and green of the square are quite a bit darker. If its a sign that it works well none if my coworkers actually noticed I was wearing it for about an...
