+1, very creepy dude
honestly the fabric looks italian to me. not sure why all the suggestions are for english jacketings. i would think you would have better luck looking at the drapers, loro piana, zegna, caccioppoli, artison books.
agree with you that the old stuff was completely different and i prefer it, it hangs like iron and has a beautiful drape. but others may prefer the lighter and smoother looking new stuff. i guess part of the obsession with tonik was its history as a legendary cloth for mods and other cool Brits like Caine in Get Carter, but it was a really great cloth.

Here is another photo of the back of my tie that show more clearly that this tie is not ink jet. I have white backed ink jet ties and this is not one of them. I expect in the name of fair play, you will remove reference of my tie from all your posts on this and other sites. Its presence only...

actually i figured you probably knew, but that you were just making an underhanded remark about the US. as an american expat living in europe, perhaps i'm a tad sensitive.
