You can send me a tie for every 3 of mine you copy and we'll call it even.

EDIT:

Actually, from looking at the pictures of your collection in this thread, I might end up owing you some ties.

No royalties I'm afraid. I can offer my undying gratitude for your excellent choice of ties and great pics! nod[1].gif

As promised, evidence of package delivered

Honestly though, these pictures don't do them justice. Taken with my smartphone in my bathroom at nighttime with the "fantastic" lighting that entails. Needless to say the colors are richer and deeper in real life.

Plaid silk necktie #13, 6-fold construction
For extra bonus points you can have a guess at where I got the pocket square



This one looks like a flat black, but it's actually a midnight blue. Grenadine fina in 6-fold construction


English pattern tie, I got the last or second last so it's taken off the site (so I can't find the number), 6-fold construction



And there's another package currently in the mail, which is an inverted madder scarf. Basically a scarf made with the backside of the madder in the PS above, so you get the golden brown color of the twill, but with a watermark effect from the print on the other side of it. Very optimistic about this one.

^^ very nice Silverfox! The English pattern is/was #20 and anyone who didn't acquire that tie is doomed to live a life of regret. It is an awesome tie. I really like the look of that plaid, it is now on the list! nod[1].gif

Thanks tdude!  The texture is very similar to the diamond weave, I wouldn't call it dry.



tdude - upon further review I would put the texture of the oxford weave between a diamond weave and a Macclesfield. It is dryer than a diamond weave.

I know, right? Plaids can really be quite fantastic. The funny thing is that when I saw it online, I initially thought it was sort of ugly, but then figured out that it might work. Then when the package arrived and I opened it, seeing the tie on it's own laying flat on my desk I literally cringed, but when pairing it with some nice blues and something that picks up the gold, it's absolutely amazing. I've had a lot of luck with David's plaids going for things I'm not sure will work. Of the 4 I have, the gray glen plaid is the only one I was sure about and had a swatch of. The other 3 were wildcards that turned out great, this one of course, the red white and blue that sort of melds to a grey with a hint of beige that I think you also bought, and the third one being a plaid with different shades of blue (I'll throw up some pictures tonight perhaps)

The english pattern #20 is indeed amazing, and I was one of those living a life of regret until it was restocked. I got the peach/burgundy (or whatever it is) houndstooth that's very similar to it in my first order, but when that arrived and I saw how wonderful it was the navy/powder version was already sold out. Luckily I managed to get one when it was restocked, but if I hadn't I'd be wallowing in my sorrow right about now.

Is that a Hober pocket square by chance?

Today's Hober is the red & light brown wool stripe (4-fold construction).
