So what happened to the SF tie? - Page 3

How wide is the tie going to be. Can we do different widths? I only like 3" ties, but I know most of you guys are in the 4" range. For people who post in "streetwear," we will need 1.5" ties...lol...

Can Chuck have the streetwear versions made out of, like, imported Italian nylon?

 Not a big deal when ordering 200, a very big deal when ordering a dozen.
Why not just make this tie part of your regular collection as well? I don't see the problem if other people outside the forum wanted to buy it as well. Maybe, it might also introduce new blood into this forum as well.

I would certainly consider a tie as well. Already picked up one of C&J's ties. Quite lovely. On the thong question, Alex, you very well know that I am a lawyer and cannot be having those photos on my computer screen. On the hand, I could have the full catalogue mailed to my p.o. box.

As the one who first raised the idea--only to hear a raging mix of support and condemnation--I'm glad this has surfaced again. I'm for it. I think the simpler design the better. I think it would be great for Chuck to come up with a few designs and we vote on it. It could be a great "community" thing, as well as a way to support a forum we obviously care a lot about. Thanks, Jon, for bringing this up again.

Dude chillax... I'm the one that brought the tie idea back...no reason to get all stressed. Jon.
Yes, you are the one. And, once again, Chuck has made a kind offer to donate his time and money to produce such a keepsake for the benefit of the entire membership. And ... once again ... you are volunteering to produce tie designs ... but not ties ... which is exactly what screwed up the idea last time. Don't tell me to chill and not get stressed as a way of avoiding the financial import of my statement. Either offer to produce the ties ... or offer a modicum of respect to the only person who has so far been kind enough to make such an offer ... notwithstanding the fact that there are a number of other members, including me, who could have done so but did not.
Must you keep bringing chuck back as your argument? We are all grateful that he is willing to volunteer his time and resources to do this, and will show our appreciation by indeed purchasing a tie, BUT to mention it over and over again is déclassé. As well, Chuck has offered to sell the ties at cost (quite nice of him to do that), not at a loss, thus please make your argument based on actual facts. There were many reasons why the idea did not come to fruition...not just because people submitted tie designs. How can I possibly produce the ties? What a ridiculous concept. Jon.

Alas, can we possibly let J decide? It IS his forum. Whatever he wants, goes. Jon.

well it took five pages, but this thread is now starting to sound exactly like the previous thread on this topic

The cost of the tie should be such that: 1) The esteemed tie designer recoups all of his production costs, and 2) he makes a reasonable profit, which compensates him for the time spent designing the tie, talking with the mills and factories, and arranging for the shipments of the final product to SF members 3) and there is some additional money left over which can be donated to keep the Forum running. How could anyone think that is unreasonable?

I had to save the best for last as what you have been totally consistent at is ignoring the dollars involved. Just how in hell are we showing appreciation to a tiemaker for his efforts by purchasing a tie from him at his cost?
By, oh, I don't know? Covering his costs? Jon.

I will work a little photoshop magic (well, a little Jacquard weaving software magic exported to photoslop)
I'm curious, where does one get this jacquard weaving software? Is it available to the public, or does it cost twenty grand and is bundled with a workstation? Does your selected mill/weaver provide it to you? Does everyone in the modern tie business work from the same software?
