Just 10? That's weak.
My wishlist is closer to 30.
I've only gone through the grenadine offerings, I'm scared to go through the rest of the website for fear I may end up broke.
I looked at the Macclesfield print silk ties...not a fan of the most of the styles/prints.
Spoiler: Isn´t it
It's nice and thick though. Think I'm going to wear it with my Stark cardigan in winter.
Don't forget the suede shoes. Boots?
Lino has a pair you may like.
holy mother mary. i need details on exactly what tie this is...its perfect.
My future orders of trendiness alone will exceed that! Some way to go though, waiting on just my second order (and a third once the second arrives). Must thank David for the effort in getting the ties out.
Those swatches (and numbers) correspond to the grenadine fina ties. (NOBD or David -- please correct me if I'm wrong.)
Am I crazy, or does the #10 (dark navy) look lighter than the #11 (navy)?
Not crazy at all. I've been looking at the swatches in different light, and it's hard to tell. #10 seems to be a more saturated/richer blue as opposed to the "paler" #11, but it's hard to tell which is darker.
Edit: and then I saw David's post above...
"saturated" -- that's exactly what I was thinking. I promised myself I had ended my addiction to ordering David's ties, but now I'll have to place another order.
Yes, you need that one.
I find them too conservative for my taste, especially the paisley and medallion print...lots of other beautiful ties though.
I think it would be fun to see a couple of pictures of your ties that are more to your taste. Who knows, if enough people like your style, David might add more fabrics to his inventory.
Kidding aside -- actually, CB, I was referring to the various small neat patterns, which have less of the referential connotations of the paisley and medallion you list above (fuddy-duddy, I assume).
Separate names with a comma.
