 I totally agree that there should be some concern about his credentials in judging the age of his silks. I believe it is quite possible he just guesses based on what he has bought before which may have been originally aged by the vendor. As I said there are some legitimate concerns here but all the snide remarks and complaints about puffery make it difficult to identify the real issues. Not sure why am making such an effort to defend a guy who I have had so much...
 You realize that "early 1900s" can mean pretty much anything before 1950 right? I have  have some grievances with PC too, but it's backhanded comments like this that just obfuscate things further since people latch on to issue with translation and advertising fluff and seem to think that is an issue with him lying. 9/10 of the complaints made about fabrics being vintage are rubbish imho. It only serves to discredit the legitimate concerns that might actually exist.
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. I wore suspenders on my wedding for the first time and realized quickly that if you have any type of guy the suspenders accentuate it 5x in that area between the top of the trousers and your navel. It's irrelevant if you wear the jacket closed all the time but its very noticeable if you unbutton it or take it off for any reason
Jesus. Ok that pull is very noticeable. As the resident 'sycophant' here, I presume his lack of response is due to Being at Pitti. As a disgruntled customer I'd say that is still inexcusable not to respond to a customer's complaint in a timely fashion.
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)
