Really? Good things come in all shapes, sizes and colours....
Drakes, Marinella, Cappelli, Hober etc etc etc
All of those brands offer quality products, to be sure.
Vanda offers the best of what I'm after - non-printed, high quality, unique fabric ties.
HC also offers some good staples, and is local (which is a plus).
TBH, I've never seen a Drakes tie that wowed me, some Cappelli were OK, Hober complicates things too much for simple old me, etc.
Vanda I can hit up there website and want abot $600 worth of ties everytime.
That Jason, Gerald and Diana are lovely people with excellent customer service and dedication adds something to the mix as well.
I'm sure there are people who prefer other makers, as you said there is plenty of variety so we can all be happy.
Selvaggio, that was pure education, thank you. A jacket which complements my natural shoulder line rather exaggerate is my aim, trying to avoid the goomba look out of a James Cagney movie : )
The path to be a well dressed gentleman, aint easy...
I was just having a whinge :). Something must have been annoying me at the time of reading.
Did anyone else sweat today? Even in the highest quality fabrics, I think at these temperatures the body just wants to sweat.
