Happy Easter all!
Can anyone steer me towards suppliers for 9cm Drake's ties, preferably in 50oz silk? There are a few on Exquisite Trimmings and one on ASW, but otherwise I am coming up stumps. Every last tie on the Drake's website is 8cm, and the MTO upcharge has gone from 10 pounds to 40, which is really a bit cheeky...
So this is a little out of the blue, given that I've been in a work-related black hole for the last two months...but has anyone got any of the 50oz Drake's silk prints?
I feel like I saw one somewhere back in the day, and it was awesome. Buck's, probably.
Anyway, how y'all been?
Re Uniqlo: when I visited the Melbourne pop-up, I was told that once the store opens, they will also be offering mail order in Australia, shipped from an Australian warehouse. I hope the guy was right...
I tie a cross between a double four and a Pratt/Albert knot, at least for silk prints. Around once and through the hole, then twice more and through again. More substantial than a double four, but less asymmetrical, within getting into Windsor territory.
Yeah, it has an identity crisis: peak lapels and cloth (and even fit) as per a suit jacket, but then in brown with patch pockets. There's a decent MJB in grey with a navy windowpane this season, but it too sits and feels a bit too much like a suit jacket.
