That one looks great. Summer is inherently a bit more casual, so knit ties are by far the best choice. Otherwise, I'd go for those Drakes silk tussahs or the Vanda terracotta one.

Elio it's Drakes. Try ET or Drakes directly.

Preferably spoilered pics, especially with that volume ...

I like the green shantung with white stripes. It's a great summer tie. Maybe a bit dark, but that also might be the photo.

 

There's also this one from Vanda if you wanted a single stripe. I might like it a bit better.

 

Green-Cream Striped Shantung 

 

And for green summery ties, this Vanda is also great. I got it last year.

 

Green Mini Houndstooth

Mr. Six. I'd love to see that second one worn. I worry it might be a bit light in color (too light on a light blue ground), but you know what you're doing. The shantung is nice. Will have to think about it...

 

Wish list is now:

 

 


Because you can't have everything.

You mofos love ties!

I like that single stripe Vanda a lot. I don't really like the triple stripe at all.

I'll see if I have a photo of it. You're not wrong. It is a bit of a challenge because it's so light, and I am not great at the low contrast fits. But I have a very light blue shirt that works and I think it works with a cream shirt that I have.

Stay here long enough and you'll start liking things you never thought you would....like 3.5"+ ties, double monks, 4" lapels, and suede shoes.

For those curious, the coffee fresco Dapper Classics I ordered arrived. They compare favorably in fit and finish to HY. Here they are next to some Walt fit Epaulet Hopsack wheat and blue trousers. The DC pair is at the top/left.
