What I find most annoying is that anyone's taste needs justification. Whenever a new workwear thread pops up, folks who don't wear/like workwear chime in like clockwork to mock or criticize it. I would hope we all wear the clothes we choose because we find them aesthetically pleasing on various levels.

I'll be curious to see what you, me and most of us on this forum wear in 2 or 3 years. I have a feeling chambray ties won't be part of our wardrobes anymore though.

Who cares? My taste in clothes has changed several times over my life and it may change again. That said, I'm thoroughly enjoying what I wear these days, all the way down to the thread of the fabric. So, I can't imagine my taste changing anytime in the future at all, hopefully.

Jeez....WIPED OUT of the bandanas already. I was going to look like an asshole with a chambray face mask anyway.

Got my bandana today. The chambray is beautiful, but a bit heavy for a bandana. Still, I'll enjoy wearing it. Let's see if it softens up with a soak...

I wear bandanas for work, I should have jumped on this and made it real authentic workwear. Just imagine how stylish those sweat stains would have been.

Such a nice chambray... if only it came in shirts. Crappy Photobooth shot.

The ties are 55 inches long and are selvage at both ends? For some reason I remember reading somewhere that most selvage rolls are like 27 to 36". Can anyone confirm?

I'm willing to bet there's a split in the tie somewhere.

Just got my order today. Love the fabric, though I definitely won't be buying any of their ties made from this stuff. The labels they stitched on are annoying and are going to be taken off later.

Looks good. oipolloi had a really nice red linen cotton blend that looks a lot like chambray, but alas it is sold out in my size. Link
