Naw if you look at the fabric closlely you can see it just a piece of silk fabric ontop of another, that has been woven, its a piece of fabric constructed of layeres of silk with a diamond weave.

Honestly because I truly do ejoy doing this, I will actually openly and without anything in return at all ever, would like to give you a very easy guide/way to tell if it is grandine or not. The tie like yours, if you look closely you can see that this isnt a piece of loomed silk, that it is a tie comprised of many differentwoven fibers in layers.

 

Gren Fina or Garza is the way the silk is woven, so it isnt goign to be on a tie in layers and such like that, but unlike a tie that is designed with a woven silk all over it, grenadine is a silk that is in fact loomed into a solid piece of silk that is all woven and connected together in a pourously knotted type manner, so they may be thinner or thciker, but theyyll alway sbe soid silk

Nice score.

Speaking of named garments... I recently found 3 Oxxford sportcoats all made for none other than Marc Andreessen of Andreessen Horowitz. Pretty cool.

A one stop that paid off while the car was getting its MOT (yearly roadworthyness check for the non UK people). All true thrift prices too - the staff knew they were decent clothes, just didn't feel the need to take the piss on the prices.

My first bit of thrifted Savile Row - my size too.




Bespoke suit, 3 piece in black - same donor as the Gieves jacket. There were a couple of other items from him too, but one had a big hole in a prominent position on the trousers, and the other was obviously an orphan jacket. Neither were as good as these either. The trousers on this will need narrowing by my tailor, but otherwise it fits well.





Made in England Loakes. UK 9 so too big for me, but will pay for the other stuff and most of the alterations on the trousers.

I love my LVC 22's with their extremely lightweight denim. I havent experienced any weird anything, and I have washed and worn them quite a bit. I also like my 21oz IH 634s, and wear them for car repair, carpentry, and general hard labor. My IW's which are 14.5oz cone are ok too, feel very similar to my Raleighs. All of these pale in comparison to my Amoskeag XX. That is some of the most fantastic denim I've ever felt. right about 12oz, styled after an early 1900's converted O'all, super slubby and roughly loomed. Perfect. I have a pair of Roys KS1002s waiting for me when I get home, so I will compare them as well. Or maybe I wont, it really doesnt matter at all, because who the fuck cares? Wear whatever you want and what makes you happy. Stop seeking approval from people on the internet.
