I just got my first Panta tie in the mail yesterday (have a few pairs of Ed's awesome trousers) and it is wonderful. Easily superior to every other tie that I own in its price range ($99-$120) and the peer to many of the much more expensive offerings I have seen. It is great to have such a great local option. Thanks, Ed.
Also, I have a few swatches from Ed of some of his linen offerings. I will be done with them soon and would be more than happy to pass them along to any SF member who was interested.
