deepitm,Very good questions - and you could ask the same about luxury ties and clothes in general.First, pocket squares with hand rolled edges have two basic styles - the rustic look which is uneven and sewn at fast speeds and the luxury smoothly rolled edges with mitered edges (like a picture frame). The rustic look is made in Europe and China and the luxury rolled edge is occasional made in France and daily made in our workshop in Bangkok.The rustic rolled edge requires...
Clovis,We only make luxury bespoke ties (which requires individual measurements for every tie) and are slightly above your goal - price point but I am happy to help with basic questions either in this post or by email to help you with your project. customerservice@samhober.comSome thoughts:An English reppe weave silk would work well for you. Don't use Chinese silk.When you select your silk you will want a 150 warp and weft count - in the reppe weave.You will want a pure...
Tyrone,Thank you for thinking of us.Freddych,We would be happy to make a white linen pocket square for you in any size that you like.Also hundreds of other fabrics that might interest you for pocket squares....It takes us about one day to make a pocket square plus mailing time.

Aj_del, Classic ties - beautiful and making me sleepy....
Dave Smith You could buy a basic pattern for neckties at your local sewing shop and start with that. A simple but good method.
Beautiful ties - good work gentlemen - I am very impressed. I have always thought that if you made model airplanes, boats etc as a boy then you can make clothes as you will have a feeling for small details. You can certainly use scissors and many tie makers use them, but we prefer rotary blades as they work very smoothly after you are used to them. Saltricks As Cary Grant mentions a nice cutting board is a good idea to use. We cut wool with a rotary blade with no...
Bobbers, The silk in your photos are not grenadines.
If you are very careful and avoid the edges you can gently iron a tie at the correct heat setting. Typically high end ties will have pure wool interlinings which will take care of most of your problems with wrinkling. Rolling ties is a debatable subject as it does have the possibility of damaging tie tips - to be safe don't do it with a luxury tie.
