No news of my order whatsoever. Has everybody received shipping confirmations already?
post #437 of 504
I have. Mine will most likely land in Australia tomorrow.

Crappy pic of the navy

Three ties received on the 22nd.

All three are lovely, and I can not wait until the new year when I get back to work to have the excuse to wear them.

I went with the navy, large pattern brown, and small pattern rust. all three look fantastic.

I got my ties last week, a day before Christmas Eve.

Lovely patterns and colors. Top notch construction as always.

I would have liked a heavier silk. I felt the ties were a little too lightweight. This also caused the silk to lean toward making a number of small divots under the knot, separating from the lining, rather than one or two substantial clefts. I'm also noticing the Panta tie pattern has kind of a heavy taper in that the knot area is more narrow vs Cappelli, etc. Unsure I like that.

Will keep an eye out for other runs.

One of my three in the wild:

 

 

For me the weight is perfect.  I have an unlined Kiton made from the same silk, and it's too light; these hang better and knot better.

I don't have the numbers so I could be wrong but it seems that at least half of the people bought more than one (I myself bought 2). If my assumptions are correct, do we really need 200 requests in order to do this again? Since that would mean that most individuals will be placing multiple orders? Considering that we're only at 120, it's gonna take an eternity to reach that goal and I want the other colors that I missed out on.

The 200 requests is just a benchmark, certainly not a hard requirement. Ed and I are definitely aware that there's still demand, and we're in talks about putting something together.

Put me down for next run w/ slightly heavier silk if it happens.
Also prefer that we keep the construction in the last run -- 7 fold lightly lined and untipped w/ handrolled edges.

Regarding the "120" figure on Massdrop. I'm sure it's not a comprehensive count. For example, I haven't marked myself for that but would probably be in for 2-4 more ties depending on pattern / details.

I'm moving the finished GMTOs to the GMTO forum!  Please feel free to keep on discussing, gentlemen.

 

Cheers,

 

Fok.

Hi how can I buy some ties? smile.gif
post #448 of 504


I picked my package up Monday. Wonderful ties, well worth the wait. I've only worn the green one so far, but it tied a lovely knot and looked great! Thanks, Massdrop and Panta, @brillopad and @edmorel!
