    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Hi David,

    There is a bit of a debate going on in another thread about inkjet fabric printing. Since I know many of your fabrics are hand printed, is it possible to see the back side of the raw fabric? The claim is that inkjet printed fabrics have a white backside while hand printed and silkscreen do not. Thoughts? Thanks.

    Thanks, that was a great response. So what accounts for the white backgrounds on many tie silks?

    Also I need to get around to ordering a few more of your ties when I get back to the US. Anything particularly interesting yet conservative enough for work you think is a must have? Already have a few of the solid Grenadines.

    'at least not always....'
    from what i have seen
    and from what
    patrizio cappelli
    has told me
    (and he knows
    his silks
    and he has been
    in this business
    for a bit)

    it is moar likely
    than not
    to be white
    (or mostly
    white)

    many if not
    most of teh printed
    silk pocketsquares
    from brand name
    italian clothing
    companies
    are inkjet
    and even if
    they have a
    'dark background'
    the backs
    are mostly
    white.

    see images below

    thank you
    david

    i think we may
    be talking about
    the same thing
    but using different
    terminologies.

    what i call 'white'
    is the term cappelli
    uses
    but it does not mean
    virgin white
    none of the inkjets
    that i saw was pure
    snow white
    like the photo
    you showed.
    i would have called that
    'white'

    all it means
    is that the ink
    has not fully penetrated
    all teh way thru
    so that the top white
    fibres of silk
    are generally undyed
    and remain whitish

    since most
    if not all inkjet
    silks start off on
    a white piece of silk
    (like printing paper)
    unlike the silkscreened
    fabrics

    edit:
    fuji lens
    but using
    nikon lenscap

    Always - though the current generation of sensors are allowing a lot of natural and low-light photography that previously wasn't possible by non-professionals. If you haven't discovered www.dpreview.com yet, do check it out - lots of incredibly thorough reviews and comparisons and an excellent forum as well.

    Are you thinking about rephotographing your ties? That would be quite a project.

    You are all welcome. We may be parting with our $$, but we are getting great ties in return. :nodding:

    God! This is so amazing it's almost vulgar. So surrealistic that it bends reality. Thank you for that. Much appreciated.
