post #3601 of 6230

Minor point of feedback, can we get more pictures of the fabrics? Especially including some showing a reference sizing like an American quarter. 

 

I ordered the White Kincaid fabric and was surprised at how big the texture was.

What fabrics/collars did you choose?

Shirt is MTM from @spiermackay.  It's the extreme spread, which I asked for (and received) unfused.  It's a great collar option available MTM. 

 

Nice.  I'd love to see some close ups of that collar.

@An Acute Style I took this picture today, just messing around.  This shirt is oxford cloth.  So it's not the best example of the collar. I'll add some pictures of a Thomas Mason cloth that I chose with the same color soon.

 

 

Here's another

Im a fan of the unfused, extreme spread in the Oxford. It lends itself well as a contemporary take on a collar that's normally reserved for formal shirting.

I was just saying that the heft of the oxford cloth takes away from the unstructured nature of the collar.  It's very nice, but the collar is much different with the other fabrics I ordered.

Hey Rick, I'm expecting a custom shirt order to arrive in the next week or two. Is it possible to add a pair of OTR trousers to that order and have them all ship at the same time to save on fees? If so, let me know how I should do that.

Yes, not a problem. Just mention it in the notes at checkout and CS will refund the shipping charge back.

Let's see what we can do on future fabrics.

Not really feeling any of these ties, but I have to wonder...how easy or hard is it to get ones hands on nice tie fabric? Tie silk is definitely specially made only for ties, as you don't really ever see anything else made of the same material. This also explains why I've never seen silk meant for ties in local fabric stores, since...well, how many people out there are sewing their own ties? Since I learned how to slim my own ties and sew them back together, I've wanted to take a crack at making my own custom tie. Sorry for the fairly non-S&M related post.

 

Having said that...Rick, have you ever come across any pink uni-stipe style linen fabric? I'm looking for a shirt in such a material.

We're well aware these ties are not "SF Approved", but without committing to significantly larger quantities/design or jacking up prices, 100% silk is what we have to work around at the moment. Even printed silks are out for us for the time being. That said, we're working hard searching for new suppliers to help change this.

 

How pink? We came across some near fuchsia stripe stuff which we passed on and perhaps a few others. I can check again in the moment, I have the swatches at the office.\

 

Question for the rest: Any examples of 100% Silk ties that are desired (that are not grenadine....lol)

Twill without sheen.

 

Anything printed. Without sheen.

 

Basically. No sheen.

@spiermackay - Stripes. Tasteful ones like you can get at Brooks Brothers and Ralph Lauren and also, and I think this would be huge if you can source it: wide block stripes in muted tones (read: no sheen, martin or charlie) and 2-3 colors max per tie. Don't understand why we don't see any of these at the low-end. I'd be in for so many provided your source can do a dry hand/matte silk.

If its made of woven silk we can pretty much get it done. Any examples will help. I plan on putting a new order in this week.
