    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. :happy:

    I looked at the Macclesfield print silk ties...not a fan of the most of the styles/prints.

    It's nice and thick though. Think I'm going to wear it with my Stark cardigan in winter. :)

    Weirdo.



    Don't forget the suede shoes. Boots?
    Lino has a pair you may like.

    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)?

    Indeed.



    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. :confused:

    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. :happy:

    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).
