That Tie Is Done. Good game tie, now fuck off to the trash
post #737 of 1082

That's a pity, I have never seen anything like that before. I consider my wool ties very sturdy, and while my grenadines have pulls (which I occasionally have repaired by a nearby seamstress), all my wools still look brand new, some after years of wear.

 

You should perhaps register a complaint...

 

One of the reasons why I like shantung is that pulls are not really a threat to this fabric :).

Yea this is the first wool tie I've ever come across that just felt so fragile. I've reached out to the vendor and hopefully can exchange for something else or get my money back.

@dazedstate this is more curiosity than anything, but do you have intensely gnarly hangnails? That's probably the only reason I could imagine that would cause such distress to a tie, especially a wool one.

 

Sorry for its fragility, as that was a nice looking one!

:rotflmao: no I'm pretty careful when grooming my nails. Good thought though. I have several wool ties and have never had this issue. I've gotten runs and pulls in silk ties or knits before but never this quickly or frequently. In any case the vendor has been very accommodating and has agreed to exchange it at no additional cost.

I'm a notorious picker, so when I forget to actually even things up, I find myself being comically mindful of not creating snags.

 

I swear I deserve a Nobel of some sort when I manage to knot my Charvets sans snags in such cases lol.

I love it. That was my first thought... "what is this? A Charvet?"

I wanted to show off today's tie, a Christmas present. It is a Marshall Anthony.

My initial assessment seems correct that the wool challis is indeed very fragile. The melange looks and feels a bit more durable so hopefully I get more than one wear out of that one. 

 

 

 

Same thing happened to my Drake's brown/navy floral rosette tie (currently on discount on the Drake's website).

However I spotted the run before I wore it and was able to return it hassle free. Sorry for your loss.

Actually eHaberdasher is taking it back and letting me exchange for something else. That are even covering return shipping costs. I cannot sing enough praise about them.

Great minds...

When would it be appropriate to wear a black tie with white/silver polka dots? Thinking about getting one since i like the look but it might be easier to get away with navy background...

 

for example:

SO1891: Dressy city applications. Looks great with a pink shirt and a light gray suit. When the ground is navy, that tie pattern is called a "Churchill dot" after Winston, who wore them daily.

That tie looks like a satin weave, or pretty close: If I wanted a spotted tie like that, I'd go for a weave with more texture: basket or diamond weave. Sets off the dots better, IMO.

Evenings for sure as well.

Not sure if this is the right place for this question, but if it isnt please direct me to where it should be. When customizing a tie and given the choice how do you decide how many folds should be in a tie? Should it be lined or unlined? Is this all personal preference for each individual?

Thanks
