Unfortunately there won't be pocket squares until this Fall.

Olive foulard will be restocked later today tomorrow. It will be the last round as I've run out of the fabric.

 

The plan is to re-order the fabric for F/W because it's a popular piece with the SF crowd. I've toyed with the idea of printing it on 50oz silk twill (aka royal twill) instead of the 36oz I use now. I had a chance to handle some stock 50oz twill last year and loved it.

 

The 50oz features a drier and more crispier hand compared to the 36oz. It will tie a slightly fuller knot (though the difference isn't that big), and in my opinion drapes e better due to the heavier weight. The ribbing (twill) is also more distinct. Downsides are that it's not as soft and delicate, and the price will also be increased to $115 as a result of using a heavier, denser silk.

 

Would love to hear what people have to say before I place my order!

Just bought this one. Looking forward to receiving it! I just hope I won't have a bad surprise when it passes customs...

 

P.S. sorry that I didn't spoiler the pic, but I can't seem to find how to do it :embar:

Some of the spring collection now online. Many sold-out neckties have also been restocked.

I see the white back. Are these inque-jette printed?

This is brilliant conrad. Love the tie.

Can you make pocket squares out of this printed grenadine fabric?

Thank you! They could be, although I believe grenadine is best suited for neckties.

Only one more remaining before I re-order the fabric.

Conrad, I've added the last olive rosette tie (^) to my basket, but am also hanging out for another to be re-stocked.

 

Please check your email.

Olive rosette has now sold out. I plan to restock the fabric in a 50oz weight for this Fall/Winter. :)
