What those blokes said, same maker. Same funny gap in the middle never seen that with any other makers.
I follow them a bit like I do a lot of other similar makers so I can see what they are up to and I know what you are saying, the last season or so there has been some really bad hand-rolling on them. Some fabrics don't take to it as well as other though and in those cases, especially grenadines I think it's better, lasts longer and neater to do a self tipped finish (not as igent though....)You can see also in your image above there is a gap between the folds rather than...
I'd put Johnston's of Elgin in there as another of those Scottish companies remaining that makes really great cashmere (and merino).

We are clearing some shantung and Macclesfield's out in our mid season sale, to make way for some new ones coming in a couple of months time. 30% off for 2 weeks.
Like the look of that polo coat nakky
Missed this one... probably more to my beard than hair ☺. On the grand scheme of things it's not all that stressful though I've just been through a pretty messy time with an ex stockist who I also considered a friend that's gone behind my back to start his own label using my tie makers.I think the biggest skill in doing it isn't design because your not really designing fabrics, but curation. Being able to narrow down 500 fabrics to 20 that will sell takes a good eye and...
