Kent Wang knit ties, including bicolor, dots; point and square end

post #1 of 50
Thread Starter 
I have a new collection of silk knit ties from a new manufacturer in Italy. These ties are entirely our design and were knit to order. New silk knits All are 58" long. Some from the previous batch are 2.5" wide. Newer ones are 2.75" and will remain so from now on. If you want 2.5", buy them while you still can. Bicolor Two different colored yarn knitted together to produce a wonderful color that changes depending on the angle. This has been very difficult to photograph and looks even more stunning in person. This style is very unique and I believe I am the only US retailer, and the only one in the world to offer them for less than $100. A year ago a forum member brought one back from Italy and it sold for over $200 on eBay. Bicolor light blue / brown. 2.75" wide only. $75 Bicolor pink / burgundy. 2.75" wide only. $75 Dots Classic pattern with handsewn dots. Navy with white dots. 2.5" and 2.75" wide available. $70 Pink with white dots. 2.75" wide only. $70 Solid Medium blue. 2.5" wide only. $65 Extra Crunchy collection This is the previous batch of knit ties from our other Italian supplier. Let's call it the Extra Crunchy collection. Our knit ties are made in Italy and I feel they are among the best knit ties in the world. They are made of very thick yarn, which makes the knit texture more apparent and produces a great crunchy sound when pulled. In the above photo, compare the Nick Hilton tie (left) to ours. The difference in the size of the yarn is obvious, and our tie even stands off the ground more. The new batch is slightly less crunchy (thinner yarn) than the old batch but still crunchier than most. All below ties are $75 and 2.5" wide, 57" long. Brown Pink Ordering Free shipping in the US. International $5 shipped standard air mail. Please place your order on my website form. Any questions email sales@kentwang.com; please do not PM. Remember to specify point or square end, and 2.5" or 2.75" width, if both options are available. Other wares Please see respective threads for more information.

I'd buy these if they were 2.75 or 3. Beautiful ties, but 2.5 is going to look too thin in a year or two IMO.

+1. 2.5 looks disproportionate on me. 2.75 is perfect

Just received my bi-colored tie and the pictures don't even begin to do it justice. Truly beautiful tie.

I'll be making up another batch soon. Now taking suggestions for other bicolor combinations.

My wife had a suggestion of a mint green with the brown. Would look good though I am unsure of the versatility. 2nd the grey and pink.

You FUKERS! KW is a great seller & does not need you to tell him what he should do..

Either money up or STFU!

The only other opinion he was asking for related to bi-colour combinations!

Sorry but the chemist is closed & I have run out of HAPPY PILLS..

* Kent, sorry to hijack your post.

Appreciate the input but this is clearly an overreaction. My comment was meant as a plea for him to offer ties in 2.75 or 3-inch width, not as a slam on his ties. I have bought items from KW and think highly of his merchandise. If he was insulted by my suggestion, I apologize. I doubt he was, though.

I really don't understand the hyper-sensitivity some people seem to feel about suggestions on the buy-sell forum. In the real world, feedback is generally sought after and appreciated, even when mildly critical. Feedback means you are a loyal or potential customer.

^ I tend to agree as I was thinking how much I'd love to place an order (having recieved a lovely PS from Kent previously) but that, alas, the ties were too thin for me. On a related note, do people still regard such ties as slightly casual - evening or Friday ties? I think, because they are solid, something like a dark navy knit point end against a white or light blue shirt can be as crisp a look as you could wish for on a Tuesday morning's business meeting. Is there much sentiment to the contrary? Given that this is a B&S thread, maybe Kent could provide the answer in terms of instructions for use!?

+1 on the sentiments expressed re: the tie width. I'd be all over them if they were >2.75" or even 3" in width. 2.5" is a little too thin and trendy for my tastes.

Haven't you been following the never-ending discussion about raining on other people's merchandise. This sort of comment is clearly inappropriate on the buy-sell forum and you should be banned
