Anyway Stitchy that one sold out long ago I'm afraid and I just gave the last one (my own one I kept) to my father in law for a wedding.

Not sure if this qualifies as one of those "good taste summer ties", but I liked it so picked it up.

 

 

50% silk 50% linen, shirt is 100% linen, and this 11oz wool coat is starting to run too warm.

its funny that a lot of mills sell fabric with high silk content as warm weather fabric when in fact silk runs crazy hot.

Is this true of any weave? Is raw silk like dupioni (which I thought was a summer fabric) as hot as other silk? FWIW, there were a few people at Pitti F/W that are now making 100% silk jackets that had kind of a fuzzy finish to them. So it's not that they sell all silk as warm weather fabric.

i too have heard that silk runs hot/does not breath well, even though it can be a very light weight fabric.

either way, looks lovely too me, diaz.

was wondering if this would be considered a summer tie as well. wool, but unlined and lighter in color and weight. thoughts?

I like silk in ties for summer, but I'm with you on the heat for jacketing. Silk was used for a long time for long underwear and such before the advent of synthetic materials because it insulates well for its weight, wicks, and doesn't suck heat out of you when wet like cotton will.

don't know about raw silk. It seems to be a more open weave so it may work well in warm weather.

silk is always hot. the physics of the fiber make it a very good insulator.

Oh, yeah, I found that out the hard way last summer. That stuff is really hot. I was talking about the tie when I said 50% silk 50% linen though, the coat is made of wool (11oz, so it's starting to run warm).

 

I'm beginning to wonder what to ask for as a lining on my summer coats. I'd get them with just a little lining at the shoulders if I could, but the sleeves must be lined, apparently - and the lining makes me sweat like a mofo. Silk is warm and so are synthetics...

It doesn't look like a summer tie to me, which isn't to say you shouldn't wear it in the summer.
