What the advantage of a blend here?

Softer handle, warmer (to wear), feels more delicate, and very expensive. Couldn't get my hands off it once I touched it. Basically gain baller status once you wear it. Everyone has grenadine.. But who has a cashmere blend grenadine? foo.gif

Available in most yarn colors although only limited to a navy warp I believe. Might do a few solid and block stripe designs.

It's possible to create a melange effect by choosing different color yarns for the wool and cashmere but I think everyone's seen enough melange from me.

I can't speak for others, of course, but "very expensive" isn't for me...but I'm not a baller.

 

I am interested in grenadines that might have a melange feel. I say keep the melange's coming, of a few different types every season. I don't know if this is so contrary to the essence of a grenadine, but a navy melange grenadine? Could that be cool? Or maybe it would feel like grenadine just trying to be Tussah/Shantung? But maybe only possible for wool/cashmere...

I believe the price would end up being around $100-120 per tie. Still working out the details. I'll play around with the idea a bit.

 

Also saw silk boucle grenadine. That was pretty eye catching, too.

I think that would be interesting. Any pics?

:) I want to keep it as a surprise...

 

Haven't seen any linens that caught my eye so I plan to do a small selection of mogador for S/S 

 

I got a chance to stop by my favorite knitwear brand, so expect to see some buttery-soft knits this fall.

Spring/summer just got a little brighter as I have about 8-10 different patterns ready to print. It's a special project I'm working on with the owner of the mill, who is a wonderful lady that I see as a mentor rather than just a fabric vendor that I purchase from. I've been asking about it for the past few months and my jaw dropped once I saw it in person. Dat shit is indeed, cray.

 

For this seasons knits I decided to keep 4 of the initial solid color offerings (brown, grey, navy, and forest green). There will be 3 (seasonal) solid colors (one of which is.... white!).

Put in an order for the beautiful PoW-tie you carry.

 

Went with the USPS International Priority so I hope I can get it by the 25. of january (to Norway, shipped out on the 15. I hope) for a student ball I'm attending.

 

Would be great, but I understand if it doesn't get here on time, there will be other occasions to wear it to anyhow. 

 

I was thinking that the PoW #1 would look nice with a mid grey suit and a white shirt, do you think that would be an acceptable combination with this tie? (Yes, I know it's not the question thread, but just wondering)

Cross-posting, you know which tie this is...

 

Conrad: have you thought about making some of your ties unlined, especially those that tie a substantial knot (e.g. this shantung). I'm fine with this knot, but if it were a touch smaller, that would be great too. The silk is sturdy enough, I think, to hold its own, even without lining.
