CMT Custom Ties

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I just returned from a trip to Japan, where I picked up 1.5 meters of a floral "Hello Kitty" Liberty of London cotton fabric that I'd like to make into one or more ties (including a bowtie if more than one tie) and maybe a pocket square (don't worry--I will never wear the pocket square with the tie).

Any suggestions on where to have custom ties made, on a CMT basis? I am in NYC, so local would be most convenient, but happy to send out to Hober or another maker if that would be a better choice.

Also, I am not sure which fold-type of tie is best--I typically wear standard 8cm bladed ties from Drakes. Any suggestions?

Finally, the fabric is Liberty "Tana lawn" 100% cotton--picture below--will this sort of material be ok for ties? (Obviously spring/summer, based on the material and print.)

Thanks!
Goph

Hermès did a collaboration with Liberty a couple of years back.

They also used a "Tana Lawn" floral cotton which actually looked very similar to the one in your post.

The tie was a 3-fold construction and produced a woefully flat and lifeless knot.

I would wait to see what the tie makers say but I would say that 3 fold probably isn't the way to go.

understandable, will do.

hard to say without seeing the fabric but based on most liberty prints I've seen in the past, the fabric will be far too thin for a tie even at 7 fold (prob why it didn't work in the past like Malford said).
