Anyone notice their new collection is mostly made of 8cm RTW ties? Rather excited about that.

Well I would be more excited if they had more 9 cm ones tounge.gif

But yes it's good to see the 7 cm ties go away.

Their woven microdot tie in black or navy is probably the first tie anyone should own.

Their ancient madder is great, and some models from this season look really nice:

 

 

I wish they weren't so much €€€€...

These are self-tipped (which I prefer), vs. last season's, which were untipped and featured bolder prints, still great though:

Truth. The 7cm ties were useless, IMO. 9cm is ideal. Good on Will at ASW for stocking them.

That untipped madder looks amazing.

I wish to no end that I had bought some of Drake's medieval-themed scarves and pocket squares last year.

I really like this scarf:

Agree wholeheartedly about 7cm ties. I can go either 8 or 9cm, slightly prefer 9.

I can't wait until it gets a little cooler, then I will feel more comfortable breaking out the unicorn prints from last F/W!

Malford of London is a great place for ties and squares. I have a local shop, Samuel Parker in Baltimore, that has a good selelction of Drakes squares, for some reason, all he carries is the 7cm ties though.
