    The challis swatch set is now spoken for.


    Thanks stitches - I'm sure you'll enjoy your ties. The grenadines are great and I have been waiting for the darker navies/blues to restock in various weaves for a while now.

    That picture was taken outside with plenty of indirect sunlight. The individual shots are in direct sunlight. I didn't use a flash at all.

    I can't see what you're seeing on your monitor but on mine the colours are probably two or three shades too light but otherwise not too far off .. except for the black silk which is washed out to a grey.

    +1. I have dark sienna, dark red an forest green grenadines and they're great. I'd like to add a dark navy to that.

    What is the difference between the fina and the piccola weave?

    They look the same to me.

    David can correct me if I am wrong, but I think the piccola is a slightly looser weave. They are however very similar.

    according to the hober website the piccola is,

    "A slightly larger weave than our Grenadine Garza Fina"

    i havent looked close yet, but they do seem almost the same. i only chose different weaves due to the black being out of stock in the fina weave. needless to say, i am quite happy with both of them.

    When choosing the width of the tie, do I specify the widest part of the tie (1.5" from the bottom) or another part of the tie?
