If it is possible to be done, David will get it done!
post #1247 of 37662
You can do whatever you want really, but David does it the same way I do for un-tipped ties. I'm not a fan of fully un-lined ties, especially with light stretchy fabrics like grenadine and some printed silks and the lining with an un-tipped tie removes a lot of the bulk that many tipped ties have without compromising knot tying ability.

Re: Hober grenadines, I go with 4 fold, lined and self-tipped. I suspect that self-tipped grenadines are more CBD than untipped grenadines as well. I also believe that the standard construction used to be 3 fold for grenadines and was changed to 4 fold at some point so it is possible that depending on how long one has been buying Hobers, one might have both.

I like.

It's a good conservative tie, perfect for what rudal's does really. Just so you know the image on the site is a bit out colourwise, I've swapped over to a new platform and it's done something a bit funny to a lot of the images so they are being replaced one by one as I get time. This one has a pink tinge to the image but this is more what it's like

Yeah. If the description didnt say white dots I wud have thut pink dots. This is very nice.

I disagree. Given JR's proclivity for rougher, more casual jackets, I think it would fill that role. For a lot of us, it wouldn't be our staple navy blazer. For JR I suspect it could function quite well as one.


and to be clear, I'm referring to the style, not the blend ;)

perhaps, but im still not sold. also, i could never get behind a "wool blend" with synthetic stretch fibers. no one should buy that.

Here's a better alternative from Howard Yount for about the same potatoes:


This lined un-tipped thing is good.  Exquisite Trimmings' cheaper tie line (Antonio Muro) have a similar arrangement - without a lining they would be stupidly thin.  But of more relevance, so does Shibumi's grenadine, worn today and demonstrated for your pleasure and delectation:

If Yount made longer jackets, I'd be all over that. Given that JR wears L, I suspect they'll be way too short for him.

But that looks like a great piece.

Also, I asked emptym to change the thread name to something slightly more appropriate.

I noticed - although give the racial and personal abuse that's accompanied some (OK my) advice, it's not entirely accurate.  Still, marketing is marketing.


And you're right: I have one jacket from Yount - one of only two RTW jackets I wear and ironically my most thumbed piece on SF!  But it is a little short on me in a 44, and I'm  only 5'11".

Not too fond of it either (sorry, Clags). The previous title had a nice stealth nature to it. Who knows what's coming this way now. How to prepare perfectly al dente fusili?
