I am sure about this weekend Karl said he is still polishing it. Are you picking up or ordering?Thanks Roger! I will definitely post photos when I get them.No too sure the colour number but it's burgundy but I ask for darker antique finish.You'll know that feeling well.
David, thank you for taking your time to answer my post.As a general rule I do like my ties on a lighter side with less bulk and I do request the lightest lining when I order ties from you.Here a image of what I am talking about. It's one of my favourite tie from you. The lining is easily access because the tie is untipped I can easily seen two layers of interlining.
I wouldn't recommend using a expensive cloth trying out new tailors. Once you have your pattern down then you can try more expensive cloth.Some entry level cloth such as VBC are very good value. I have a suit WW Chan made me fro VBC Super110 still going strong after many years of wearing.
