Vanda Fine Clothing - Official Affiliate Thread - Page 20

post #286 of 548
I'm wearing two Vanda products today

post #287 of 548
Jon I like both. I have a similar color scheme to the top one from vanda. The bottom I see as a good fall winter option for sure.

Good to see things back on track..

Regardless, I like Justin's attempt to put us back on ties - the reason we're subscribed to this particular affiliate thread. I've been thinking about these two madders - anyone have either one and have a fit pic?




@jcmeyer - just a note - neither of the two ties are madders (i.e. the soft, chalky stuff), but they're lovely all the same. Also, we're running dangerously low on the second tie!

My thoughts too. On the flipside for S/S, I keep having this gnawing feeling like I should own the pink hopsack. happy.gif

Gerald comes in with the "this offer won't last long" hard sell huh? wink.gif

I figured I would be wrong about those being actual madder - but are they thicker silk or more like the navy with brown flowers weight? Some lining in both?

^^ Just saving you some heartache if the tie's sold out!

They'll feel like the classic macclesfield prints, i.e. dry and crisp. So, yes - like the navy with brown flowers, and similarly made in a lined six-fold construction.

Does this one even need consideration? Hell, I've only just seen it and might just buy right now. That's one beautiful and incredibly versatile tie.

Haha, did Gerald put you up to this to get me to buy the thing before the fabric is gone. DID HE!?!?!

Good job, plant! nod[1].gif

Haha, it would indeed look that way, but truthfully I only saw Gerald's post after I made mine!

pink hopsack is worth it.

Enablers, all-a-y'all.

The only thing giving me pause on the first two I posted is the lighter silk in general. I have two, and although they're lovely and I can dimple them just fine (because I'm advanced like that), they like to come away from the collar - I have to cinch them back up pretty frequently. Anyone else dealt with that or have any "this one weird trick saved the day" type advice? Gerald, do you deal with that at all when you wear them?

Been eyeing that green one for a while. Can't decide if I like it in theory but wouldn't wear it.

For very light silks, it can help keep the tie in place if you tie a knot that's slightly more substantial than a FIH, like a Pratt knot or the knot Mark Cho ties here: https://vimeopro.com/thearmoury/tie-tying/video/50828730

Though honestly I just let lighter silks do whatever they want. I like having ties wear a bit differently based on the fabric and construction.

The printed silk ties are more 'slippery', so i tend to tie a tighter knot with them than most other ties. Don't notice them doing weird things myself, but applky's tip about using a different knot may be worth a shot?

Yeah, "weird" isn't what I meant to describe the tie's behavior, it makes perfect sense that being more slippery would cause it to slip. A double four-in-hand does hold a bit better than a single, but the thinner silk/lining tends to produce a bit of a gun-barrel knot for me when using the D4IH.

I'll play around with it a bit more and try another knot, but it should come as no surprise that, as a StyFo member, I get a bit OCD about ties that have come away from the collar to the point that *gasp* you can see the top button.
