    Anyone have a solid reppe swatch set they would mind sending my way? I've got a diamond weave, solid grossa grenadine, and cashmere up for grabs via PM.

    Edit: Sorry, should have been more clear. I've got swatch sets for those who want them. Not ties.

    I have heard that Chiang Mai is an awesome city. I hear it is cecoming artsy and such. I'd love to get out there at some point. My girlfriend is spending a couple days there next week actually before going to Cambodia.

    I am looking for a swatch set of the reppe solid as well. David doesn't have any available.

    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.
