last one is one of mine but who's counting

Then Drake's really need to use your pics, I wouldn't buy those from the site but the way you showed them? Magical.

Also, maybe it's because you are seated but their standard width/length ties are no bueno for me. The 9cm/158cm section is limited.

Ed, I went to your site today but didn't see the awesomeness I remembered from the last trunk show. Camera tricks or you re-ing up?

Thanks for the kind words. Either 8 or 9 cm is fine for me. 7 cm is too narrow for my taste

Just speaking truth. I will have to look into these magical ties. I particularly like the fact that they have a matte finish but are still optically pleasing/intriguing. Thx.


But the Drakes ties I own are slim (guessing 7cm) so I have to wear them with the smaller blade showing to add some width.

You can give them to tiecrafters to widen them

Nah, too much effort to be expended. I view ties as write-offs. Similar to how I liken dress shirts to undershirts-you wear them and when they start to yellow, you retire them. That's why I never spend more than, say $40 on a tie. The few [RLPL ties] I have spent $50 on I've given away without wearing them once. Ed is waiting for all of my contract collared shirts to yellow smile.gif

Quick question for you and I'm not being facetious; in the CBD environment you work in, how are the brolick watches you wear viewed?
post #6923 of 7015
I don't wear big sport watches with CBD outfits.

Come now. Perhaps this was on Friday?

Sub was on a Friday with a more casual sport coat outfit (I sometimes wear my Radiomir as well on Fridays).

The other two are not sport watches - they're on the smaller side and are steel dress watches

They are optically pleasing because they are matte, not in spite of.

Shiny is the enemy.

Yep, Ed definitely needs to post more silky goodness on teh Panta website. Come on, Ed!


Re: Drake's - I can't do the 7cm width, either, and I am frustrated that the vast majority of their ties are so narrow. I e-mailed Drake's about it a while back, and asked if they had any 8-9cm ties that they were hiding, and I received a response that stated that because narrow ties were popular at present, they were concentrating on 7cm for the time being.

Yes, I know that they do have some wider ties in the "long" section of their website, but they are all too long for me!

I'm pretty much sold out of most stuff but new stuff will be up shortly. Re your PM, those were never put up for sale, if anyone interests you let me know and I'll get back to you.

P.S., I can make the ties whatever length/width you like.
