gdl203 - I like that tie, looks like Drakes. I asume the stripes on the shirt are green too, a little hard to see on my monitor.
Regarding the Drakes width, I find their standard 8cm too narrow also, especially at the knot area. One can order bespoke ones on their webste and select more than 8cm width. The Armory and suitable wardrobe also use to carry 9cm if I'm not misstaken.
Drakes ties in 9 cm sound like perfection to me. Too bad the tie selection on EW's website leaves a lot to be desired
Love that striped grenadine gdl. Have been kicking myself for not getting it a while back
It infuriates me that Drakes - who I consider excellent in every other way - insist on not selling rtw ties wider than 8cm, and many of the best designs only in 7cm. Special orders are fine, but ties are most satisfying as impulse purchases
Emma Willis has a very good selection in her store - but mainly prints, and some wovens. They don't really have any cashmeres (only plains), shantungs or grenadines
