@gshen 

 

What did you decide about the spacing between the stripes? I liked your last proposal which increases the spacing a touch from the original.

The distance will be increased from 25mm to 28mm, while everything else remains exactly as before.

Yep, that's what I was thinking as well. Thanks for the reply. smile.gif

I wonder, Gerald, if you might set a minimum pre-order number on the olive version. I suspect that might be a winner too, and if you set a pre-order threshold (plus maybe adding a few more for the store, if the olive passes that threshold), additional people will be happy? If the threshold isn't met, no harm done.

 

I suspect that voting for a tie in the poll doesn't mean you'll buy it. A pre-order is a different way of voting, i.e. with your wallet.

You're probably right, but since we promised that we'd do the three most popular designs we'll just keep it that way for now. If these prove popular and we get many requests for other colours, we'll certainly do another run.

Also, the MOQ for these fabrics is very high and they're pretty bulky, so storage is an issue for us here too.

Gerald @gshen - was the poll tied to a pre-order? I missed the poll but didn't want to miss getting in on the preorder.  Thanks!

Nope, we haven't accepted preorders yet. They'll be up on the site sometime next week hopefully. Just sorting out some details with the weaver right now.

So we met with an agent for Solbiati linens, and we now have the opportunity to order any of their fabrics for ties icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

If you haven't handled Solbiati linens before, these are some fantastic linens with great texture, drape, and softness imparted from aloe vera at the finishing stage.

We have not decided which designs we'll be stocking for the season, so do let us know the designs you might be keen on. We can get better individual photos upon request, too.

The forum compresses photos too much, so here's a link to higher quality images: https://goo.gl/photos/vBaUr4CotjE6fLnn9

Thanks to @venividivici for requesting these photos.

there goes my wallet...AGAIN! at least 6-12 i would love to have especially the cotton/wool/nylon & linens S06001 (orange/blueish or grayish)

Keeping in mind that these are summer ties so a lighter tone/color are desirable, and focusing on browns and blues, two of each.

 

Middle blue

 

 

 

Left blue GP with blue overcheck. I actually like the brown GP on the right too, but people will object to these as for jackets not ties:

 

 

Superb's brown GP

 

 

Mid brown, second from right, possibly the brown third from left. Want something dark enough to wear against light blue shirts with summer blue jackets.

I liked the middle 'cranberry' color...very unique. I think it'd make an awesome summer tie.

I love linen ties, and these all look damn good. I'd also like to see the far left (burgundy?) above.

The burnt orange sandwiched between that and PCKs pic would also look pretty schweet

Thanks gents, keep those suggestions coming!

I initially thought the scale of lordsuperb's pictured GP was too large for a tie, but on second thoughts they could be quite nice. Comes in 3 shades, too:




Also, we're unlikely to carry the very unique shades like the 'cranberry' as we know from experience how well they will (or won't) sell. The good thing though is that the minimums are small, and we can do any design/colour as long as we have four orders in the same cloth.
