Thank you. I don't disagree with any of that. And I'm not interested in who supplies who per se -- I just want to find another source of knit ties of the same quality of Drakes', given that their colour and pattern selection is, of course, limited. Any leads on this German manufacturer?
El Corte Ingles in Lisbon (it's actually a Spanish department store that sells mid-market to basic luxury items).
The single most versatile colour is, arguably, light navy. Sand/beige is also quite versatile.
Ok, just to make a start:
There's a fair amount of discussion of jeans + coat & tie, but what about the above? And I mean non-creased, tendentially wrinkly chinos, not the kind that are basically cotton twill dress trousers. Just one step up from jeans. Post good and bad examples of such combinations, and let's discuss, if you're so inclined. I'm struggling to find any photos that don't feature overly tight clothes and the extremely short coats that are in fashion at the moment.
Yes, in the Rome shop. Though maybe I've not seen their spotted ones, come to think of it. Could it be that they get the solids made up and then sew the spots by hand?Yes, but I'm quite certain that some knit ties with different tags are virtually identical. Of course they could be made by different factories with identical machines and identical quality silk, but you get my drift.
KW knits are certainly not the same as Drakes' (different weave: Drakes' is thicker and crunchier). They may well be the same as some of Rubinacci's though.
Then Gallo knits = Wang knits = Rubinacci knits (don't have any of the latter -- also, they may switch suppliers every know and them; for instance Rubi does fancy knit weaves I've seen in their shops and never liked). Also, Howard Yount = Charvet (!), and Borsalino = Ralph Lauren = Les Copains. (I have a lot of knits and hardly wear any other ties.) The Drakes ones are less common though, and I like their weave very much. If only I had written down the name of that...
So it's a mystery.
