SF Club Tie Poll - Page 2

post #16 of 60
Thread Starter 
(oscarthewild @ June 28 2005,13:17) Are we sure we want the diagonal down towards the right.  I would much prefer the diagonal in the opposite direction with it pointing downwards towards the right.  The left chest has the pocket and I think repps look better going down towards the right. -
I feel the same way, but didn't want to raise the issue.
I thought of the same thing. I can't imagine it would be a whole lot more work to do it the other way. Perhaps we will have a vote on that if Chuck says it's do-able either way, once the pattern is chosen.

Can we vote on width? I must insist on 3", but if necessary I will compromise to 3.25"
Agreed -- my belly is already warm enough as it is.

Dont mean to be a jerk, but why is everything only stripes and stripes and more stripes? is there another option like a pattern? Carlos, you have so many medalion things on your site why cant we go there? Also I vote textured, anyone agree? Are these going to be dense mogadors or plain regular silks?

Hmmm, I already have a tie that looks like number one so either 2 or 3 for me. I guess I'll have to go through the tie collection to make sure I don't have those already as well

Hmm, well I voted for 1 initially.  But the more I think about it, I think #2 would be easier to wear.  White (or what will more-than-likely be off-white) won't really look good with a white shirt.  Something that is primarily red, on the other hand... Oh well, guess I can't change my vote now.
I must insist on 3"
I never saw the final word on construction, but if they're doing this in a folded tie, it's not likely that it will be 3".  Other than Hermes and some other printed ties, who is making a 3" tie anyway?  I think that 3.5 - 3.75 is pretty much considered "standard".

Well... Stripes are not my personal favorite but traditionally club ties are striped. That was the consensus anyhow when this was discussed before. I understand the desire to do them in widths ranging from 2.75 to 4" but we'll have to go middle of the road. I understand that 10% like a very narrow tie and 10% like a very wide tie but work with me fellas... surely you can see why we can't make everyone's IDEAL tie. I will see if we can make a few narrow ones but will go standard width on most. Stripes can go right to left, left to right - no biggy but we'll need to decide. For those who love Medallions I agree with your anti-stripe position, you should immediately proceed to my website and purchase every medallion as a protest.

To be honest I'm not extremely fond of stripes myself but it does seem to hold the broadest appeal. Most of my favorite ties are solid, which wouldn't make for a very distinctive "club tie".

LOL, welcome to my world J. Normally when we work up a pattern I don't give a darn if I think that not many people will like it - I need 64-96 people to love it. Here the goal is a tie that everyone can live with so it has to be something fairly uncomplicated. I'll find something interesting to do with the silk to keep it from being boring, promise.

carlo, can't you just make a different one for each individual person? that can't be hard is it?

I would actually prefer the SF club bow-tie.

I prefer keeping the stripes running the way they are because we're not a British regiment

I voted for #1 because it seemed more distinctive than the other two - which sort of reminded me of ties that I could probably find in the store. Hey - if we're going to have a club tie it should be distinctive. Bradford

I am going for the second one... It looks purty...

I voted for #1. It looks less like a politician's tie, IMHO.
