    right here, right now
    It is not just what the tie measures at the widest point. I think the shape of the blade has a huge impact on appearance. Tie Your Tie makes much more of a bottle shape with the front blade which makes for a fuller look while Drake's is more standard. Without knowing, I would have guessed my TYT was much wider than my other ties based on how it looks under a jacket. Actually, it is only 8.5cm.

    Quick PSA : as you guys know, we supplemented the group MTO sport coat orders with a few pieces for the rack (in order to reach the minimum cloth order actually), so there's a few Fox Brothers char blue herringbone flannel and a few Drapers blue hopsack sport coats that will hit the site soon. Just so you know, that's all we have in those.

    Well, now I'm just going to be pressing F5 all day.

    Re tie width: It's not the width at the widest point, it's the width where I usually tie a knot that keeps me away from 8 cm ties. I don't like the size of the knot that I get from Drake's ties in that width. 8.5 is on the border for me. But you've got plenty of great 8.5 and 9 cm ties, so I'm not complaining!

    Hmmm, I agree too narrow, but then why does this tie paired with char blue herringbone look so much fuller? Superior knot tying skills? More robust fabric? If I'm not mistaken, it's the rust donegal herringbone in the current Drake's batch (i.e. 8cm):
