Very happy with my Christmas haul:


^ Clockwise from top, dark navy garza grossa, dark chocolate garza fina, dark red garza fina, forest green garza grossa, macclesfield #98 (six fold, hand-rolled edges), black garza fina. Under the watch is a macclesfield madder pocket square. Between the ties is the garza fina swatch set. The perimeter is the garza grossa swatch set.

Close-up of the ties:


The Macclesfield:


The swatch sets definitely have me planning my next order.

I want that Macclesfield print so badly.

+1. Fantastic choices.

Thanks! I love them all, but I think if I had to pick a favorite, it would be the dark navy.
post #1479 of 4911
^ Correct.

What construction options did you choose for the grenadines?
post #1480 of 4911
I chose garza grossa for the dark navy and forest green, and garza fina for the rest. I think garza grossa looks great on the darker colors.
post #1481 of 4911

I think he wants to know if you got the same construction on the grenadines as you did for that print?  ie. unlined, untipped, handrolled edges?

post #1482 of 4911
Ah yeah I misread that. No, I got the grenadines with the standard options (four-fold, lined, etc.). I should also note that the Macclesfield is lined...I prefer the drape of a lined tie.
post #1483 of 4911

^ Many thanks for the information! I think I still prefer the drape of unlined 6- or 7-folds but that is good to know.

Your post pushed me over the edge.  I picked up this same print along with a navy pindot and forest green grenadine.  I'll post pictures as soon as I receive my haul!

 

David was insanely prompt with his replies over the last few days.  I'm still amazed at his service and helpfulness.  I'll be ordering additional ties in the near future!
