Yes, you are correct the Seiko 5 does have a very nice look but it seems to have a lower build quality - for example it does not use a sapphire crystal which is a must for me as I often work with my hands and have two small kids that I play with daily. I have a low, almost zero tolerance for scratches.The Citizen watch strap also looks comfortable and I love quartz watches with Eco drive for casual watches.Btodoroff,Thank you for the suggestion.Yes, a nice watch but not...
I want to buy a simple clean looking titanium watch that is comfortable and have been looking at this Citizen golf watch - anyone have it? http://www.amazon.com/Citizen-BM7120-01E-Titanium-Drive-Watch/dp/B004JKFJ6M
Radical Dog,Still looking forward to the photos when you get back.Meanwhile it turns out we have one woman on our staff that can sew beautiful hand sewn dots (spots for our UK friends).I am not sure how long it would take to sew dots on an entire tie but custom colors would be possible and we would start with grenadines.
It should be there any minute now.....You can camp out by your mailbox.Depart USPS Sort FacilityAugust 27, 2012, 11:04 pmNY Registered Mailâ„¢
Radical Dog,The best knit tie review I have seen - good work.Any chance of close-up photos of all 4?The photos would help show the difference between 2 and 3.
Ricini, I will be posting on the front page of our site silk updates and for other silk questions please email me - thank you. TaxGenius, ScurvyFreedman Has answered your question well. A few thoughts - it is important to actually measure, as some gentlemen have long or short upper torsos which can really change the measurements. Also the big end of your tie should be where you like it not where it makes a nice knot. Generally a half-Windsor needs an extra 2 inches...
DaveSmith,You have me curious - is this something you have done or have watched done?I am unclear what you mean by "after the fact".If I were going to sew spots on a grenadine tie by hand today I would do it just after cutting the silk, and before the tie was folded.With a knit maybe the same way - but I am not sure - it depends on how we had the fabric knitted.
Radical Dog,Thank you for your suggestion - we do something similar currently with our bar tacks.If there was interest in custom dots we would probably start with our grenadine silks and offer squares in addition to dots.
Unbelragazzo,You are correct - we don't use knit fabrics currently.Knits ties typically are knitted in long tubes like an open sock.We do not make any ready made ties and it will take some time for us to be able to customize knit ties - but this is something on the horizon for us - eventually we will make bespoke knit ties.
Doopdoop,In Thailand dressing well is considered very important, perhaps more than in Western countries.If you look at photos of the King of Thailand he looks great wearing formal Western and Thai clothes, He also wears a pocket square in his suits.Many important business people wear suits in Thailand.Sure it rains in the rainy season but it rains and snows elsewhere so you use commonsense.And yes it gets hot especially in Bangkok - so airconditioning can be your...
