1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I think he calls it a "Charcoal" grenadine. Lined six fold.

    Couldn't agree more! FWIW I think the 4 fold is plenty thick for this tie...I wish I had gotten untipped with handrolled edges but didn't.

    Yea cashmere ties usually don't require tipping, they already have enough heft, all they need is a single FIH and you're good to go

    I get 6-fold lined, no tipping, hand rolled edges on everything I order.

    Any of you have any of the following:
    Forest Green Shot Thai Silk Tie #10
    Forest Green Grenadine Silk Tie #16
    Forest Green Reppe Solid Silk Tie #16

    Would love to see pics of the tie. I can't decide of the three which I want, but I want a forest treen tie.

    ^ I would go with forest cashmere, garza fina, reppe, all three are different and awsome in their own way

    If I do a grenadine I think I'd like to get a garza grossa, but I might check and see what David thinks too when I give him all the rest of the tie details.

    I bought the forest green grenadine garza grossa from David and I get tons of compliments. Beautiful tie!! I also recommend the bitter chocolate.
