    Good evening MKtitsworth,

    As In Stitches mentioned email is best:

    And I am very relaxed and happy to answer your questions about how to make a tie that works well for you. Mainly I listen and ask questions trying to have your tie end up with your vision but my practical advice.

    Our workshop is typically open 6 days a week (Monday through Saturday) from 8 to 430 (Thai time zone) although I will often be in my office working late at night or early in the morning so that I can answer questions for the American time zone.

    I look forward to hearing from you - please ask as many questions as you like.

    This fabric is a CLASSIC of silk weaving from a historic standpoint. It's a bit hard to use in Men's attire to the western eye. The more subtle color combinations among them are no less stunning than the very bright ones and I are easier to wear.

    I get this fabric as samples for use on furnishings and sometimes pop a sample into my jacket pocket as a square. :embar:

    Thanks David123. The order will be made, but if you have a chance to snap a pic in the coming days I'd appreciate it.

    Stitch - the prodding is unnecessary :nodding:

    If you ever start making slubbed raw silk ties, I'll be bankrupt.

    In Stiches -- how wide are these ties? They look about 3" - 3.25"?

    sorry for the delayed response. they are all 3 and 5/8 inches wide. they are neither very skinny nor very wide imo, works very well for me as im not exactly a skinny minnie.

    david however, can make them any width you like.

    As an owner of a non-Hober all-grey garza fina, I'd definitely want a bit white/silver in there. The grey just doesn't refract enough light unless in sunlight. The Hober grey grenadine has two types of grey (dark/light) in the weave, so if you do pull the trigger, don't for get to post pics (sans flash).

    ^ Thanks for the picture and opinion. I ordered a garza grossa tie already and I'm quite sure that I made the right decision. Can't wait!
