TEN TIES, FIVE JACKETS (10/5 THREAD): SPRING-SUMMER EDITION - Page 9
It's a 100% Italian linen (http://www.samhober.com/italian-100-linen-ties/plum-purple-and-midnight-blue-linen-tie-glt-2.html). It's very soft for a linen but has a bit of texture to the touch--about what you'd expect from the visual texture--and very slight slubbiness. It's woven from different colored threads, so the color changes a bit in different light. The top and bottom in the photo show that off to some extent. I wanted something between burgundy and purple (no interest in a true purple tie). I was lazy and didn't ask for a swatch first. I'm happy with how it came out. Excellent craftsmanship from David and his team, of course.
Great, thanks! I had forgotten about the Draper's linen tie you picked up. Glad you like it. I wear it often as well. It has a nice spongy feel to it I haven't experienced with linen cloth. It's a really nice tie, isn't it?
