Just ask, David will pretty much make anything out of any material he has on hand ..
Looks like this one: http://www.samhober.com/macclesfield-print-silk-ties/macclesfield-silk-tie-80.html.
A little brighter than I expected; still shaping up to be a nice tie and it's been an awesome experience so far.
I have two swatch sets that are a random assortment of swatches I specifically picked out. One is grenadines (some grossa, some fina) and one is mostly dots/spots with some other random stuff mixed in (paisley, Macclesfields, and other random stuff). Will mail them to the first person to PM me for each.
Is this how they dye the fabric? with a paintbrush once the pattern is cut???
I think that's them dying the wool interlining so it won't show through the weave of the grenadine.
Yeah, that's the interlining, not the actual tie. It's a nice touch.
Ahhhh.... gotcha - mind is unblown - things make sense again. Still a cool touch
yurp. noticed it on mine too. awesome.
I proposed last night and she said yes, gentlemen. I'm still not sure which tie I will wear at my wedding, but I definitely want to get myself a chocolate fina as a self wedding gift.
Now, I just have to convince my parents that renting a tuxedo is NOT the classiest way to go.
Congrats and best wishes to you both.
thats a good gift.
If you were to have one of these for your only navy tie, which one would you get:
or This: http://www.samhober.com/diamond-weave-silk-ties/midnight-blue-diamond-weave-silk-tie-2.html
i.e. navy or dark navy diamond weave (Yes, the link says different, but I swear it directs you there)
I'd go with the dark navy, but personally I'd choose the dark navy grenadine grossa.
