Question for those of you who have worked with a lot of Drapers (though the same query applies to any other mill/supplier)
I'm thinking of linen and linen mix tie fabrics for the summer with the hope that Cappelli might pick up some of these (I think many of his linens come from Drapers anyway).
I find the Arcobaleno appealing from a color and textural perspective:
Would be great if there was a darker brown and green in that bunch.
And this next bunch as been popular here, I like the streakiness. I think both would work well in more casual fits in spring and summer. Does anyone remember the name of the book below and also other suggestions? Drake's had some nice streaky linen-wool-silk mixes this past S/S season from Loro Piana I believe.
I know everyone is thinking fall/winter, but for ties, I'm pretty set for the cold season (not that I'm not on the lookout!). Let me know if you have interest (thinking six months ahead). I'll ask Cappelli about the possibility if there's enough.
I am going to have those for the next season. ( not all, of course) as being linked with Drappers for some years. Hopsack ties are the most underrated ties ever. Far better than the garza ones.
