    With spring being around the corner, does anyone have pics of David's linen ties?

    I got these last year and think they are terrific. They were posted earlier in this thread somewhere but I'll re-post since you asked. :) On David's recommendation I had them made up as 3-fold ties and I think that was the right decision, for linen especially. They are powder blue and forest green:

    In this picture the linen ties are the two to the left:

    Thanks Sonny, I do remember seeing them. The powder blue is on my list for my next order.

    Is that shirt fabric from the Sic Tess Oxford Book?

    Just wondering as it looks uncannily similar to what I'm wearing today. :)

    Beautiful, beautiful fabric...

    Maaate!

    :fistbump:

    Hober grenadine + Sic Tess 120 Oxford = Major win!

    As an aside, can you believe Sic Tess has actually done away with ALL the checks in their oxford-cloth shirtings this season???

    Not happy...

    I may have to add another green to our linen collection - thank you for the suggestion.

    Patrick - Which one is that? Maybe it's just my monitor but it looks as though there are several very subtle colors reflecting off the tie.

    It is actually the charcoal grenadine. The direct sunlight makes it look a lot lighter and those colors must be a prism affect. Very cool. Or it could be the remanants of my Irish Car-Bomb that was (successfully?) cleaned off from the other week. Or, it is the reflection of the eyes of my beautiful girlfriend behind the iphone. :)

    A soft summer emerald green would be nice.
