Can you please post a photo?
A good question - normally all hand made ties will have a bit of a roll on the edges as they are not ironed or given a heavy pressing just a touch of heat, as already mentioned.If the edge has more than a normal gentle roll (3-D) it will be from the fabric and wool might very well be the main reason...
"It's actually pretty fun." Having fun in life is so important. You did a great job with your prom guidance - good work. They probably have an interesting computer inventory system and you can learn lots of different things even if what not to do sometimes.
Very friendly and fast service - a great seller.
Formal shirts can certainly be worn with button down collars in America. Why not? Button down shirts are worn by many CEOs of large companies. Wearing shirts that are not button downs are a style choice and also OK. I grew up wearing button down Brooks Brothers shirts. There are dress rules for certain formal events in life, but developing your own style means not being bound by what others think and instead dressing as you like and feel that you look best. I don't...
No personal comments were intended - I am sure that there are many small ways to improve on a knot and dimple.One thought is to try and make the dimple before you tighten the knot.One other thought about interlinings is that with custom made/bespoke ties you need to cut the interlinings by hand one at a time.
It is a myth that it is just the interlining.First, not everyone likes the same type of knot.Next, not all wool interlinings are made alike and there are only a few (if that many) luxury wool interlining makers left. Even with luxury interlining wool there are many weights, different brushes and the number of layers can differ. Knowing which wool interlining to use and keeping on hand different types of wool is important.Adding a layer of cotton does not necessarily...
A great post Nillam, My father used to buy fabric in Madras from a factory in the 1960s with a similar look to your plaid. Very easy to order but deliveries were shall we say on time Indian style. You sound like you are having fun - best of luck with your adventure! I am curious how many times do you need to wash your fabric before it stops bleeding?
Measurement variances with a custom made/bespoke tie will result from a variety of reasons with cutting being the smallest reason. A luxury hand made tie will have variances in measurements from day to day and over time there will often be stretching. Remember the edges will/should be soft and the entire tie will flex and move as you wear it. What you need to look for in a luxury tie is the overall fit and finish. As an example if you request rolled edges - the edges...
