    I must admit that I have no experience with good ties, so I would like to ask: Why is it that ties with unlined tips are desirable? I would be concerned that it gets too flimsy and light?

    It's all about personal taste. There is something about handrolled edges/unlined tips that just get people going.. I personally love it.. [​IMG]

    On certain ties it works better than others, for example, self-tipped grenadines are just way too thick. They need to be untipped or regular silk tipped.

    Thanks for the reply. The ties look really good, and I can see that the grenadines look a bit more substantial.

    Did Spoo ever actually give an instructional on his tying technique like he has teased for years?

    First Vanda purchase for me. Really like the tie; material, construction and fabric all get my thumbs up:

    Great personal customer service in the whole order to delivery process makes it all even better. I'll, of course, be back for more [​IMG]

    Vanda does not use any tags behind the tie, correct?

    Correct. No tag, no keeper. Just their signature "V" stitch at the corners.

    I think i might have a problem. They make a shorter tie which is great for me. Problem = $$$$$$$$$ Which i do not have enough to buy all the ties on their website.

    Amazing feel and ties a great knot. love love love

    Three ties arrived yesterday - green silk herringbone, blue Donegal and navy linen shepherd's check. I wore the blue Donegal today and it is a great tie; I wasn't sure whether the light understated Vanda method of construction would work in a fall/winter fabric but it does. Pics when decent daylight available (probably in June).
