Has anyone made their own tie? When my Grandfather passed away a few years ago, my Grandmother gave me a lot of his things. One item is a dark gray cashmere SC. It doesn't fit me at all but I don't want to get rid of it due to sentimental reasons. My wife has a sewing machine and I am very handy so I was thinking of trying to make a tie out of it. My idea would be to take an old tie, deconstruct it for the pattern and lining and create a new one. Has anyone done this? Thanks.
