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...
Very slowly, but steadily we continue to work on a project to use real natural madder again as a dye for pocket squares and neckties. Along with other dyes. Stand by for updates...
guy321,Your idea is a good one if you have a good eye for a niche market and general business experience/skill.Keeping your current job is a great idea - you can use nights and weekends to start your business.First, find a good name and setup a basic website talking about what you want to do.Then buy shopping cart software and pick basic website software.Next, signup for PayPal and a merchant account or just PayPal to start.You costs so far are very low.Next research...
bsch1, "I have a few Brooks Brothers and Ralph Lauren ties, but after a few months they lose their luster (look dull in color) and begin developing pulls." You should return the ties if they lose their luster after a few months as this should not happen
davesmith,Thank you for your question.There typically is zero duties charged in America for neckties and shipping is usually less than $20 as we use the post office most of the time. $11 for one tie $15 for two ties via registered airmail which is very safe.Some other countries do have VAT and duty but that is very normal for those countries - I am thinking about northern Europe.
There is another school of thought which is that the lapel is a secondary consideration. Instead look to your body size. If you are tall a wider tie will work well and so on...
Gdot,All I can say is amazing - when I was a boy living in Banjara Hills on Road #12 there were no hotels.Just a few houses here and there and lots of boulders and rocks. No tourists - no high tech...I plan to visit again with my children in a few years from now - I hope that i am not too disappointed with all the growth.
zerostyle,I have heard Chipp2s grenadines described as a good value, here is a review that was mailed to me one year ago:"In one of the forums someone had asked about the Chipp2 Grenadine ties.If you recall I ordered a dark red and bright blue from you and I own several of the Chipp2 grenadines. The Chipp2 grenadines are all garza fina and appear to be from a nice reputable mill.I think there is slightly less sheen than your ties so they don't look as expensive.The...
DaveSmith,I am easygoing - all is well.I am a long term businessman and I do plan on returning to more mulberry/silk farming which with a blend of Western technology and Thai tradition hopefully will give us a raw material advantage for silk down the road.We take great pride in what we do so a small profit margin is OK for us.Now back to our previously scheduled program....,
