    ^ 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.

    ^ Those look great, but a bit wide, what width did you get?

    Great choices!

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

    David,

    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.

    David - I understand that you are currently moving but when can we expect the new Macclesfield prints up on the site?

    Thank you David - you have my PM. I will continue the noble trend of passing along the swatches when I am done.

    Hi everyone,

    Is there a Grenadine Grossa Solid swatch set available for lending? I ordered some other swatch sets a few weeks ago (fina, grossa stripe and the dot set) that I'll be willing to offer up for lending once I've received them and placed my (first!) order.

    Best,

    Matt
