Disagree, I've seen some VERY nice Duchamp ties.

Now, Emilio Pucci, thats stimulating.

^ Nice! I just purchased a few Drake's cashmere ties from Will at A Suitable Wardrobe. There may still be some available if you contact him. Gorgeous ties.

Slewfoot,those are nice. How wide are they? 3.5"? Drake RTW ties are usually skinnier than I would prefer them to be.
post #265 of 2000
Thanks! They're right around 3.25 inches which is ideal for me.

Slewfoot, how can you call those soporific? Nice damn ties.

Thanks! Well, they are classic in nature. Plus, this is the only tie thread we've got!

A slip stitch when you extend that thread past where the tie needs to be closed and then come around looping the thread back . You sometimes see it poking out from the bottom of where the tie is closed. Like a noose. Its purpose is to allow for greater and more free movement of the tie so that it doesnt rip when the tie is pulled up and down etc. See more in David Hober's excellent (as usual) instruction on tie making here.

The proper way to do it is to actually sew it into the interior of the tie (as shown in the picture posted) where the two folds overlap in addition to the "four Corners" of the label or keeper.

I was always under the impression that the purpose of the bar tack was an added (and possibly not necessary) touch to show that the tie will stay sewn closed and not to keep the interlining in place. I think that the presence of of one in an unlined tie as well as the absence in many ties (and the lining still stays in place) bears that thought out.
