As the Macclesfield printers went out of business the designs either were sold or in many cases given away to two local museums.So currently most of the old designs are available - some actually in the David Evans/Adamley files, some in museums and some in other corporate collections such as Silk Industries which owns Vanners the weavers and used to own David Evans and Adamley.David Evans/Adamley is now independently owned and operated by its management.Some printers in...
Mizuchaud,Style is something personal and this sounds like an interesting personal style choice - so a good idea for you if you like the look.The solid midnight blue may very well be a slightly different color but this could add to the elegance of your idea.
emc894 and Antioch,Thank you for thinking of us.The sample bow tie is only as needed and will not be offered in the future - without an additional charge....
Deadly7,The out of stock grenadines are all being rewoven in Italy now and will turn up in April - thank you for your patience. Normally we try to keep all our grenadines on hand so reservations on waiting lists is typically not needed.Grad Schooler,We have no knits in the near future - I am sorry. Maybe next year we will have time to start working on them.Instead we have many new silks for later in the year also bow ties are currently just starting to be made after a long...
T4phage,I like your writing style.Big is relative - I think my post was accurate and not misleading but my apologies if you thought so.Our labor costs are mostly American. All of our management and design costs are American.Our transportation costs are very high.Overall our costs are probably similar to Italy or possibly higher as we are very small and do not have economies of scale.In the future we plan to return to a focus on growing, reeling, dyeing & weaving our silks...
"...but we take our time to make everything to the absolute best of our ability...." Gerald, Thank you for your kind words. You and your friend already know the secret of tie making as I can see from the above comment. With that spirit you will do very well. I just visited your site and laughed when I saw your Singapore weather commentary "hot and hotter" for your two seasons. Enjoy your trip to Europe - we have small children so travel is rare for us. I look forward...
Eustace Tilley,Roughly speaking you are correct.Macclesfields are printed very nicely on twill silk and wool challis by David Evans/Adamley in Macclesfield.Names are something that Europeans are more particular about than Americans. The printers in Macclesfield consider that which is printed in Macclesfield to be a Macclesfield.I understand that some people have different thoughts but I am sensitive to people who earn their living printing silks and follow their thoughts -...
Superb summary of what is bespoke.Berkeley and the Bay Area in general has some very creative people - talk some more to her husband and ask to see some more examples, you may end up finding the suits to be what you feel are a great buy for the money because of her service and closeness to you.
I may have to add another green to our linen collection - thank you for the suggestion.
You are 100% correct.To make an OK pocket square is not that hard if you have talent, but to make a luxury pocket square takes making hundreds of practice ones under the supervision of an expert, and then it takes 2+ hours to make each pocket square on average.Currently there are only a very few luxury pocket square makers in the world.
