    I have the midnight blue both oxford and fina grenadine. I also have the navy grossa grenadine. All great ties. I think the midnight oxford is the most useful of them all.

    I ordered ties on Thursday night/Friday morning and they got here on Wednesday. That's 5 real life days from order to in my hands. I am also really pleased with what I got. Bitter chocolate grossa, slate blue fina, and a macclesfield print.

    I agree that you need more spread out pindots and knits etc. I probably won't buy ties anywhere else from now on.

    Here's a good example for my tastes. Bought this last fall. Wore it once, even though I love the autumnal colorway. Ties a poor knot. If it had been made by David, I might have worn it twice a week. (Sun has brightened it a good bit in the pic. It's darker IRL.

    I could use a wool fall tie from David, too. That's one thing I don't have. Once I tried a made to measure tie, I don't bother shopping elsewhere. Why would I? I like a 56" length!

    I own the midnight blue oxford weave, here is a pic I posted a few days back.






    I also have the midnight blue in the diamond weave and linen. Here is the diamond weave from a few months back.





    From the swatches, to me it looks like the grossa, fina and diamond weave are all a touch darker than the oxford weave. Also from the swatches, the oxford navy (#3) is a good bit lighter than the #2 so if you wanted both I say...do it! As always, I think the diamond weave is a good option as well. [​IMG]

    I'm very excited about this because I'm going to be filling out my winter tie collection this year. I had been planning on buying mostly Hober wool challis, but wool/cashmeres will present an intriguing other option. It may be tough to decide which to go with.

    Thank you sir! The suit is indeed my one and only flannel. Turned ever so slightly cooler here in the ATL today so thought I would put it on.
