Contrast bar tack is a nice touch NOBD

Sam Hober made my first real tie out of forest green cashmere and it's the most substantial feeling tie I've ever held. I don't think I'll be getting my ties from anyone else anytime soon.

David, what sort of ?braid or ?stitch is used to make the bar tack? I've just had one come undone on an old Paul Stuart. Looks like a thread explosion.

Thanks. That's what I thought. I'm not sure why (besides that I love brown and blue) it had to be
cobalt blue, but that's what it had to be. I asked David if it was possible and he asked me to send
a photo for colour reference. That was this one (not mine):



It didn't have to be that exact colour, just a very saturated mid blue, and that's precisely what I got.

(Sorry for the long story about such a small detail, but I think it's great that personal wishes like
that are met with enthousiasm.)

^ Thats cool - although if you stare at that jar of powder for more than 3 seconds, you go blind.

Here are a couple of match-ups I have or have on order for a sport coat I recently had made up...which do you like better, and do you have any suggestions for trousers...I was planning on a medium brown or khaki trouser: John G. Hardy 13 oz. Lambswool Sport Coat Fabric: Green cashmere tie: Brown pocket square: OR Brown grenadine tie: Green pocket square:

For that sport coat,green tie will work. Use some other color PS. I have a sample of that cloth,can you post the made up coat? Very curious to see it.

Sure...here's a picture although the overall color in real life is a bit more mustard than this picture shows:

Thanks,it is totally different from what I expected. Maybe I have a different # but it is very close to what you posted,do you remember the number of the fabric?

LOL, no problem...individual preference...I have all of my suits made with notch lapels, and all of my sport coats with peak. FYI, the real color of the fabric is close to the originally posted swatch in post number 173.

Apropos, We don't have a special name for how we sew our bar tacks. We do use thicker thread than we do to sew the beck of the tie.
