WillingToLearn,

A good point about stretching - unfortunately stretching is more of an art than a science as there are a number of variables.

1) Grenadines are a loose weave and do have a tendency to stretch - some stretching can happen the first time that you wear it and more stretching can happen over time.

2) The more you wear a tie the more likely there will be stretching.

3) Tying a tight knot tends to increase stretching.

4) The longer a tie is the more that it will tend to stretch. As an example a 64 inch tie will stretch more than a 57 inch tie all things being equal other than the length.

5) Some men do not change their grenadine tie length and are very happy with little or no stretching. While others need to shorten their grenadines by an inch and others by two or even three inches.

Have you noticed some wool ties tending to stretch as well? I have sold a few of my wool ties and when measuring them, find that they are often longer than their manufacturer listed length.

Tweedy Prof,

All ties stretch to some extent - in addition to the variables listed above - the looser the weave all things considered the more a tie will stretch.

The stretch that you notice could be from how you wear your ties or it could easily be a variance in how the tie was made and have nothing to do with you.

Or it could be a mixture of the two.

This is likely not your target market. Skinny ties with extremely loud "F you" designs are generally not well regarded here.

Fwiw, I like SOME of the bow ties, and find them far more tasteful than the neck ties, but them made as pre tied (if I misread the offerings, please let me know) bows is a complete nonstarter for me.

I think you're best served going after a younger, hipper crowd than SF.

I appreciate your feedback,  the intention is not sell our products here but only learn from what is happening for fashion with our neckwear and fashion.  We a working on launching a new line of neckwear more geared towards the business crowd (less loud) along with more self bow ties to our line.  We have been selling a lot to our specific avatar in Canada and the United States and now we are working on expanding the business.

 

I am here to learn from the community and provide valuable content.

Any feedback on Cordone1956 ties? I remember reading a thread where someone tried their bespoke services way back when, but I don't hear much about them.

Like what? What could be more special than something made exactly for you?

Maybe a tie with the word "special" actually on it?

Examples?

 

Limited edition would be always inferior than bespoke, also bespoke is 1/1.

I love ties and all accessories, too bad so many view a tie as a formal thing to wear and not something for everyday, casual mode.
