    Have the garza fina swatches, and I am ready to send them out to the next interested person. Of course, with the obligation to pass them along. First person who sends me a PM "wins."

    My choices out of the batch: Royal Blue, Sage Green, Dark Chocolate (or may have been bitter), Silver/Charcoal. All four are stunning!

    That sounds appetizing. Will they be printed silks, or are you also experimenting with woven patterns/other weaves?

    Any idea when the red and burgundy cashmere will be restocked?

    That sounds interesting. Will there also be patterned grenadines?

    Has anyone noticed any difference between the shape or size of knots produced by 6-fold and 3-fold ties? I'm planning on making an order soon, but can't decide wether to go with 3 or 6. I've got a 6-fold and the knot is perfect. Just wondering if there will be a big difference going down to 3-fold.

    ^ Depends on the fabric and lining, I find 6 fold grenadines too thick while a seven fold unlined tie makes a small yet elegant knot, matter of what you prefer. Width at the knotting point also makes a difference, I suggest asking David for his recommendation, he's more experienced and knowledgeable than most if not all of us

    Is this Number #11? That is the tie I was thinking of wearing for my wedding with my charcoal 3 piece.

    Hey SF members,

    Anyone have the Dark Pink Reppe tie? I'd be most interested in seeing the tie in action and IRL. I will probably order it, but curious if it is dark/subdued or on the bright side of things. Thanks!

    First order from David arrived today. As everyone should know service and quality is second to none.

    Some prints that don't show up too often, might help some decide.

    The usual grenadines, plus a cotton silk. Maybe the sleeper of the bunch.

    Thanks Spoo / Dave

    or

    4.1 cm more than :foo:'s expansion.

    Great choices!

    Grenadines from L to R? dark navy fina, dark chocolate grossa, dark or slate blue grossa?

    Any idea when you might get the midnight blue oxford fabric back in stock?

    GradSchooler,


    In about 2 weeks I should be making an order of English silk - perhaps 3 months afterwards we will have the silk.

    Meanwhile new grenadines have been woven and we should receive them in a couple of weeks.

    JPHardy,

    Great photos - I like the wood background.
