Thanks for the reply. I was leaning towards not wearing it, but this just pushed me over the edge.

Better egotastical than egotestical... I think.

Ok. So I ordered some swatches. We'll see what happens.

You do know that the swatches won't magically turn into ties right before your eyes, right?  stirpot.gif  You've got to e-mail David to order them.

It is impossible to resist once you have the swatches.

Well, my new order arrived last night and I picked it up from the package room this morning. As usual, I am absolutely delighted with everything.



From left to right: magenta grenadine grossa, navy grenadine grossa, and burgundy with green pindots. All 56" by 3.75". Can't wait to wear them out in the wild.

That part was done simultaneously.

To be serious for a moment, I actually find that it gets easier. While I have the impulse to buy, having a swatch or something provides me with an outlet to make contact with and spur me back into further deliberation. I also usually only go after swatches once I have a pretty good idea of what it is I want already and then the swatches are there for me to determine amongst a few options for that one thing. I'm a damn picky bastard, and before spending anything I usually go through several phases of "if I saved and waited, would I find something I like better?" This is part of why I often have problems shopping for RTW. I'm not averse to a good value proposition and may be willing to acquiesce to impulse if the price is right, but the answer to my question of "would I find something I will like better?" in that case is usually "yes." This sort of thing has cost me and I've passed up good deals that in retrospect I shouldn't have, but overall I'm willing to live with that to avoid having to later look in my closet and go "Dammit, that was a stupid decision." Well, at least to minimize its occurrence.

Question on measurements of ties.  I got my first order the other day.  I got three ties--one English silk and two grenadines.  The funny thing is that when I tried them on they seemed slightly short and I measured them and they were all exactly one inch shorter than my specifications.  I contacted David who tells me that it is normal for ties to "contract" while in a box and that they will be the correct length after I have worn them a few times.  While I don't want to assail David's credibility, and I suspect that he will work with me to make things right if it comes to that, I was wondering whether anyone else found the ties to be a different length than specified upon arrival or whether they measure what you ordered when they arrived?  Thanks for any information.
