I have two favourite - but now sadly ancient - ties that desperately need replacing. I've been on the lookout over the past year or two but have failed to find the near-exact replacements I'm after. They're not particularly odd ties, and yet I just can't find them. I'm hoping someone on SF might have seen one of these on their travels and be able to suggest a source please.
Price is irrelevant (as long as within the usual tie spectrum) and quality must be decent. Must be new, not second-hand, and I'd prefer RTW simply because it's easier & quicker, but I'd be willing to go bespoke if the process could be conducted without an in-person visit, in fluent English and with someone knowledgeable enough to deliver a high quality product and find an accurate match for what I want. I don't care about handwork, sevenfolds, different linings or any other similar pixie-dust, just that the end product must tie a nice/standard, not overlarge, knot with either a FIH or half-windsor. Oh, and standard tie length at most (no long/xl ties).
Your mission, then, should you be kind enough to accept it, is to locate the following:
1) 3.125" to 3.5", printed, finely woven silk (no obvious/tactile weave from a mid-distance; think Hermes or Ferragamo type finish rather than an old English reppe club tie), navy tie with white spots (not pindots; decent sized spots without being polka), and the spots must be arranged in diagonals not grids. i.e. like this tie but with diagonal not grid arrangement on the spots
2) 3.125" to 3.5", printed, finely woven silk (no large twill/reppe/jacquard/etc), navy tie with red pindots (not spots or polka), again arranged diagonally, but quite closely. i.e. something like this in terms of dot size/spacing but with red dots in diagonals and on a finer background weave.
Any ideas, SF? No prize on offer for locating either of them, except for my eternal gratitude of course! Thank you! :)
