post #29266 of 36447
Greg Hi,

I was just browsing the site and I can tell that the new Sozzi ties are fantastic!

A quick question if you don't mind: is it me (or my screen), or the green cotton one is less dark than the green silk (either solid or zigzag)? I comprehend the difference in the two materials and textures, however since you have knowledge of both, I would truly appreciate your input.

Again, congrats for the choices!

Cheers

Dimitris

I would like to see solid single color TYT grenadines.

 

As to Bigi, the square I reach for most often is the pearl gray linen from a couple of seasons back. Their squares are really excellent.

Regarding BIgi, I like the 9cm. An 8cm would be too narrow for me. I keep trying 8cm and always go back to 9cm.


Bigi sure makes a great tie! Excellent fabric, colors and knots.

Strongly in the 9 camp. 8.5 would be less than ideal, and I feel 8 would be a deal breaker.

 

That said, if Bigi currently sells poorly, a change may need to be in the offing.

Maybe I will buy some today. Perhaps it is probably less due to width, and more due to Drakes being more recognizable in the iGentry, and Calabrese being inexpensive.

I still have a few 8cm ties that I wear occasionally, but 9 times out of 10 when I go to pick a tie for the day I go with a 9cm.

 

^^This.  The reason why NMWA is so successful is the fact that you get to have a lot of choices to pick from.  With that being said, I think that having the option of choosing from different tie brands that offer different widths is really good for us. I personally prefer the 9cm width and I hope that you can retain this size.  Although @gdl203 I do see your point as well in so far as the business side is concerned. 

 

Whatever it is I know you'll make the right decision.  Just my 2 cents of course.....

post #29271 of 36447

I used to take anything other than 9cm tie width to be a deal breaker.

 

Greg, perhaps order a few ties in both widths in the next run, and see which sells faster...Bigi is making ties in 8cm anyway for places like Barney's so it can't be hard for them to do this? [NMWA's Bigi selection is much more tasteful than Barney's].

 

Otherwise, an email poll to all your customers might also be useful.

Thanks guys. Very helpful. Leaning towards keeping 9cm and just reducing the offering then.

Now for something completely different, who's on which team for the Schneider pre-orders?

I like noine cm Bigi ties as well (I have 2 from NMWA), as someone else already said, being a tall guy I'm already making my knot in a section where the tie is getting narrower, which sometimes produces a knot smaller than I'd like. Any narrower and I probably wouldn't buy.

Been back and forth on this all day. Trying to decide between basketweave, navy, and beige. Burgundy was almost the winner but I like the idea of contrast ribbing.

For thinner jacket, trying to decide between MCBW and Burgundy, don't know though if there is enough panache to pull of burgundy!

 

@conceptual 4est - I know you have said your liked sz 4 but is sz 3 going to be an absolute no-go or will it work if worn over a tee or a thin shirt?

Size 3 works just fine, but I just like bigger floppier coats and more relaxed shoulders/armholes. Based on other conversations we've had, I actually think the 3 would be ideal for you.

I am in but trying to decide exactly what...top contenders currently:

 

Thinner in basketweave

Thinner in camel

Conservation in grey/blue twill

Hey guys- Anybody here own the GRP Navy high-collar lambswool knitted jacket and have any comments on the fit?

(Here's a link)
http://www.nomanwalksalone.com/index.php/clothing/knitwear/navy-high-collar-lambswool-knitted-jacket.html

I'm debating between the sz 3 and 5, measurements seem to work best for me on the sz 3 except for the length (23.6 inches long which seems a bit short) I'm 5'11" btw.
post #29279 of 36447
Conservation in Burgundy for me.

It will join my green Memory. I guess all jewel tone all the time. What I regret missing out on is last years color block version. Stupid.

Warms my heart to see votes for the basketweave Thinner.   I really think this will be a beauty.  

 

The Thinner is just such a well designed jacket.  Everything is right there, the ribbing (with the back bottom hem rib) the back is really clean with a split yoke, the side pockets, the peak of thin knit liner when open.... :inlove:

 

Some Jacket Thinner pr0n...
