I disagree with that assessment. It's just a matter of preference.

2. First tie is a 100% silk navy with white pin dots. I compared the silk with a recent Drake's I purchased, and the feel, drape and texture are very similar. Will show pics of how it knots when I wear it for the first time. Overall, very impressed.

3. Second tie is the brown fina grenadine. Compared it to a grenadine I purchased from a very well known Savile Row tailor and an igent approved Italian tie maker, and the H.N. White is definitely notches above. Nice silk, drape and texture.

In conclusion: Extremely impressed by the quality of the ties. Will be ordering more from Harry before the New Year.

And will post pics in the wild very soon.

Thanks again Harry!

Thanks for the review! So great to hear your thoughts.

Yes agree photos can be difficult to convey actual colour. Would say it is pretty true dark brown. Probably a hair lighter than dark chocolate (if that is what you mean) which to me is heading on the way to black. Can always send some extra photos if you like.

I hope that this brand continues to grow so that more designs can be offered.

Edit: In particular, personally, I would like to see more striped designs, both printed and woven, but especially the latter. Vanda and Hober have put out some great striped grenadines. To me, ties are meant for business occasions and I've since eschewed non-silk ties and unfinished (raw, tussah or shantung) silk ties, as well as ties that do not have a dark coloured base (navy, burgundy, dark brown and dark grey). Sadly there appears to be a dearth of silk ties with a dark grey base, and hopefully HNW will offer these in time to come.

 

Thanks for your kind words. Will be continually trying to offer new, attractive designs at fair prices.

 

Stripes are most usually woven by nature. Shall hopefully be featuring striped grenadines, mogador and some muted prints in silk and wool challis come January. Most will be based around a dark coloured base, with a few surprises along the way.

Feel free to offer 8 cm but don´t take away the 9 cm.

One of the reasons I started this venture was because I was seeing so many 8cm ties. Don't worry, 9cm are here to stay, any 8cm will complement the main collection.

Hi guys,

 

I've got a few of this tie that I'm putting on clearance at just £35. With your 20% discount, they will be just £28 plus shipping, which is a mighty steal.

 

I hadn't uploaded them to the site before today, as they turned out to be very lightly lined and I didn't want to create a discord with the rest of the collection, but I do need to make room for incoming ties. The silk is a beautiful medallion design, handprinted in England and the tie is hand slipped, as with everything I offer. They are very lightly lined, so I would really recommend a double four in hand. Having said that, they do tie an awesome knot.

I don't think there is much this is not going to go with. Fine with grey or navy suit, fine with a white, blue or pink shirt.

Hi - everything is 9cm at the moment. I might add some 8cm in January, but not for every design. Will happily have something made for you if you like to PM me.

 

As a general point on the width debate, I see so many looks that I think would benefit from a slightly wider tie, especially in the knot area, but so few looks that I think would be better with a narrower tie.
