Any chance you could change the sentence to read as above?
Drake's ties are up - our best assortment from them to date. Lots of Madder silks and wools.
Squares to follow in next few days.
As pointed out last night - the two winners of Collective Action are also up now - since these are limited editions cut from deadstock fabrics, they can't be restocked so when they're gone, they're gone.
Ditto, and also since I alredy have the sweater, it's not like I profit.
Greg, is the Drake winner tie considered a "madder"?
Yes, 30oz silk spun & net madder
Kopped. To hell with the NPC
^^ Good man ^^
I want a madder Drakes so bad.
That burnt orange tie is so awesome but...and Greg will call me an idiot for this....I hate 8cm ties.
I would never call you an idiot !
But I will quote you here so that you can look at it in a few months when you've come to your senses and realized that 1/4" of silk is not significant enough to pass up on great ties
Ill just go ahead and do it. You are an idiot.
I think hate is a strong word, but I had a strong preference for a wider tie. I decided to give it a try. I no longer have a problem with 8cm ties.
Color and material have almost more of a visual effect on tie width than the actual measured width. I cannot tell you how many times people have held a tie and said "too bad it is not X cm", then measured it and were surprised that it was. The lining and tipping also has an effect on perceived "real estate" of the tie.
I have a couple 8cm Drakes and they are closet ornaments. Maybe I need to break them out and just wear them. That burnt orange is screaming my name.
The day I started buying ties that were less than 9cm was the day that my tie collection became so much more awesome. Ya'll are foolish!
Bust those ties out, Murl and lets see what happens!
Another thing I've noticed is that ties with large patterns look much wider. So I've started in MTM ties orders getting bolder patterned ties in 8cm and solid ties in 9cm.
