    I don't think you reserve. You just order.

    Deadly7,

    The out of stock grenadines are all being rewoven in Italy now and will turn up in April - thank you for your patience. Normally we try to keep all our grenadines on hand so reservations on waiting lists is typically not needed.



    Grad Schooler,


    We have no knits in the near future - I am sorry. Maybe next year we will have time to start working on them.

    Instead we have many new silks for later in the year also bow ties are currently just starting to be made after a long wait...

    Hi David

    I'm very happy to see the bow ties. Will they be offered in all silks at some point? I might want some spotted ones, or even grenadine.

    Also (if a little wishlisting is allowed), I'd be very interested in summery madras (bow) ties.

    Received today in David's standard, yet outstanding packaging. Used regular shipping and it took just over 3 weeks from order to delivery. That's incredible. I will try to post images over the weekend.

    The fina dark purple/black is really beautiful. I have the grossa swatches and ordered that one on whim. I think I'm going to wind up with a few more fina grenadines based upon this one. Just wow!

    apologies if this has been discuss before....if I want a little drape, does it mean unlined is a better construction choice? Does the material comes into play ? Also, what 's pros/cons of tipped/untipped? Thanks

    I would love to see some pics of this tie in particular, if you get a chance.

    Just email David, he will answer all of your questions. He generally recommends the lined ties for better drape.

    ^ Unlined ties are fantastic, but are very much a style choice and aren't what most are used to. They work better with some fabrics than others, and in my experience should only be used with 6 and 7 fold construction.
