If anyone here maybe owns both a Garza Grossa and a Prometeo knit, would you mind posting a high res pic for the sake of comparison? I can't decide. Thanks in advance.

This morning I received an interesting email about the lightness of ties:

"I will use a four in hand knot, and I want the tie to be very light and soft - like a piece of beautiful cloth.."


The interesting part was that this gentleman wants a tie made with grenadine silk but as close as possible to a luxury shirting material.

We have done this before making a lined tie with Carlo Riva cotton and cotton/linens and the result was something very, very light but limited in use to perhaps mid summer garden parties.

Grenadines can be made unlined but will typically not be as long lasting as a lined tie - due to the lack of structure that wool provides.

Silks with a heavier and/or tighter weave will be more durable in an unlined construction.

Interesting.

 

David, what is your favorite tie that you have made/make?

Sam sells a beautiful Cal Berkeley tie, and that should be enough for everyone.

Ugly Joe,

I read your post right after you wrote it and I have been thinking about it.

Currently I love the feeling of madder silk and the classic Macclesfield prints.

There is also something very special about making ties that your family has raised the silk worms for, reeled the silk, dyed it, woven it and then finally made the necktie - this would be some of our Thai mudmee and shot silks, and in the past was my favorite.

I also like collecting and am working on building our regimental collection - each with an interesting history and these will be my new favorites most likely.

From a recent email:

"A follow up question on construction. On my last order, I got a grenadine with hand rolled edges untipped. I like how the hand rolled edges look but I'm slightly concerned with how it will age because it seems more delicate then my other grenadines. Is it possible to do hand rolled edges with some sort of tipping on grenadines?"

My answer:

In theory you could do a rolled edge on a tipped tie however, the edge would be very large and not attractive.

Our untipped grenadines with rolled edges will last just as long as the classic tipped version.

The deciding factors are whether you like the look of rolled edges and don't mind the lighter tie weight and see-through area where there is no tipping.
