looks a lot lighter here than on the website, is that the real color, or is the website more true to life?

Why would you want them longer? Arent knits long enough at that length?

I like the back blade of my ties to be roughly 2" shorter than the front blade. With knits, I don't mind if they're closer in length, or even the same. A 57" tie is on the shorter end of the classic range, and would result in the back blade being roughly 5-6" shorter than the front for me. These proportions are unacceptable, and I'm only of average (American) height (5'11").

I could live with a less-than-ideal length if the width was good. But 2.35" is too narrow, even for knits. I like 3" for knits.

In my experience, knit ties stretch about 5% (i.e. 2-3") in length after a few wears.

So I am digging the 2 tone especially that brown and blue one. Looks pretty dope.

Dope knits, Mr Wu. 

Eagerly awaiting the neckties. Will you consider bringing back knits with a pointed end? Your previous knits are baller as fuck, and makes the bitches swoon.

Not if you store the correctly (i.e. don't hang them).

Knits do stretch, anywhere from 1-3 inches, with wear.

 

I plan to offer pointed end knit ties for F/W in wool or wool/cashmere

 It's not as light in the picture but I think it depends on the lighting.  The material seems lighter in sunny/well lit rooms vs. darker in darker rooms.   This picture has a bit of morning sun coming through so it may be skewed a little.  The shirt is blue not purple as the picture reflects.

Okay, thanks! The first pic seems more like the website, just waiting for it to get restocked now
