No kidding! I've been waiting for a midnight navy bow in garza fina for about 18 months. I've been putting off ordering the tux (I've got a black one, so it's not like it's urgent) because it just wouldn't be the same without the crowning detail.

I have a 3.5" Panta 6-fold that I have been wanting narrowed to 3.25" or 3" but I can't bring myself to bring it to Tiecrafters. I'm worried it'll come back with fewer folds, or some such.

Why not try them out with a cheaper tie at first? There is a lot of positive feedback on them on here.

I have a number of ties I want to get narrowed by them but will experiment with a couple of basic ones before sending in anything valuable.

Do you also manufacture bowties or just ties as I might be interested in getting one? 

 

Thanks!

I currently am, and am picking up the results next Friday. But a lightly-lined hand-rolled 6-fold is such a different animal from the lined 4-fold I gave them, I doubt I could make a real comparison.

 

In other news, Sam are you planning on stocking any raw patterned silks for the (northern hemispheric) summer?

Any rough date as to the restock of fabrics?

Very good idea. 

 

And haha I always make that mistake. My apologies.

I have the swatches and the burgundy seems to be a dark brown and the dark red seems to be true burgundy. YMMV.

I've already decided on a bitter chocolate grenadine garza grossa tie and need another that goes well with navy, brown and eggplant. I saw a gentleman the other day on the subway wearing a burnt orange tie with an eggplant stripe shirt with brown pants and it looked very sharp. Very fall!!
Many thanks!!

I was considering the burnt orange in cashmere.

I have the Macclesfield Challis wool tie in burnt orange, which I am very hapy with.

Great minds think alike - I also own the dark red! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I will try to get around to taking a picture. Yours is the cashmere I take it?

Could somebody tell me if Sam Hober's grenadine ties are tapered, or completely straight? In other words, that would be the gradual curve from narrower at top to wider towards the bottom. I don't own any vintage ties (pre-1980s vintage, that is), but I've heard that old school ties were generally not straight-sided but curved. That old school feature is what I'm contemplating, if possible, in midnight blue and maybe a somewhat narrower width, like 3 or 3 1/4 inches. Thanks, I'd appreciate the feedback.

It's a bespoke service.
