Hah, excellent. Has it been sent yet? If it hasn't been finished and sent yet, take a piece of advice from a kindred spirit and have the midnight blue one monogrammed in pale pink. I recently discovered just how great a very very pale pink looks on midnight blue, and if you're getting your monogrammed, I highly recommend this combo. It's not listed on the site, but they have the thread (at least they did not long ago) But it's a superb color, not really pink, more of a...
That's the general character of cashmere though, isn't it? It's distinctive in that it's both extremely dry and very very soft, makes sense that a 50%(ish) tie should take on a lot of those characteristics.On an unrelated note, my addiction is growing more sever, and I just had to add two more to the order.Went with the Royal Blue Diamond Weave......And this one:And one thing I can't understand is how this macclesfield is not sold out. From having followed the macclesfield...
Another thing to consider too is that his knot may vary. Being 6'4, and wearing trousers that aren't overly high-rising, I need my tie to reach down far enough. With a "normal" premade tie, this means tying the knot very far up on the tie compared to where the tiemaker meant for it to be tied. Which due to the way a tie tapers (assuming it's not a hipster skinny-tie) means that the knot will also be at a point on the tie that is considerably slimmer than what was intended...
I'm going to take this opportunity to champion my favourite, the burgundy diamond weave. Not really red, but it's my idea of the perfect subtle sophisticated power-tie. Not flashy, just perfect. As for sizing... I'm 6'4 and I order mine 3.85 inches wide and 67 inches long, this is with a 17.5 inch neck, four in hand knot, and the width is what I think looks most proportional to both the length and to my broad shoulders. That being said, I do like both ends to be of...
Yep, keep fighting the good fight.We should start a tie-obsessives anonymous. I'll be your sponsor if you'll be mine, though in all honesty I'm a very enabling sponsor.
Give EMS a try, my experience with DHL is the same, but EMS has gotten through every time. Granted I'm not in the EU, but I am in the EEA.
If you say nothing you get the standard, which is 3 or 4 folds depending on the fabric. If you want more folds, the choice is yours, but David will be able to give you opinions on what will work best depending on what you aim to accomplish. I like my ties soft, heavyish and with a dense knot that sticks, so I tend to go for 6-folds, some like theirs light, in which case 3-fold is usually more suitable (some fabrics are still very light as 6-folds though). What David will...
Hello everyone, I'm back from my tie-hiatus. Been reading the backlog, good to see pink panther is still killing it. Just ordered the map rectangle, the brown prince of wales and the midnight blue grenadine fina with white and red stripes, both in 6'fold. Basically finishing up some unfinished business. Saw someone talking about chance of getting their stuff flagged by customs, I dont know where they live, but my experience has been that EMS always gets through (100%...
Yeah that's what I was imagining, like a navy DB suit made from maybe a flannel or something else with a "wooly" texture and look and with some slightly subtle pencilstripes or not-too-prominent chalkstripes. Especially if the collars on the shirts are nice and spread, white would probably work best, but pale blue would also look nice.
Nice ties, that kind of printed yellow is a bit underused I think, including by me. Not too formal, but still formal enough. The madder especially looks very soft and plump, looks like it'd drape like a dream, which should go well with the "soft" style of the color and print.
