Thanks. Wilco on the pics. Should arrive before I return from a work trip next week.The rough silk plum will be my 4th purple Hober. And, that new striped purple grenadine is calling my name for next time.
Just ordered another two ties.
Charcoal Gray/Silver Grenadine Silk Tie #21
Plum Thai Rough Silk Tie #9
Both standard construction.

Will update when they arrive.
That's incredibly big time.Are any custom designs? I was considering doing a Hayes with a different leather in the U throat of the adelaide.

The preview of the chapter from Dangerous Women on the Dance of the Dragons is out.
This chapter will likely preview things to come in Winds of Winter.
I have a low arch (completely flat on one foot) and consequently a low instep. I sized down an extra half size on the 348 from what I would have expected because of heel slippage. It felt tight at first, but the leather stretched nicely and now is very comfortable. I'm going through the same thing with a pair of AS that are tight across the ball b/c I went with a size that wouldn't slip in the heel.
For my slip-on shoes I added a tongue pad to help with heel slippage. ...
