    I remember reading a post about this in the Unfunded Liabilities thread, Prof. Maybe a search in there may turn something up? Wish I could be more help.

    Jason, what's the orange colour like in real life? Is it orange or more of a peach/apricot?

    I have a navy dotted one already, Jas, but that orange one looks the goods!

    Toby, glad you like the Sena case - great value for money IMHO. And, as for your longwings hunt, I've got a pair of Aldens in cigar shell cordovan.

    I've already got an orange one as part of my Ascot knitted tie collection but I'm always on the lookout for good, dotted, knit ties.

    I got a navy knit tie with green dots from tobiasj recently as part of his "High Tied" collection and now the CW/Henry Carter navy knit tie with white dots looks like a good addition to my wardrobe!

    No need to shout. Levi's lock down international purchasing pretty hard. Your best bet is probably a proxy or maybe eBay?

    New AndyTom loafers.

    Arrived today. Excellent quality. As good as Tod's probably, but hard to tell as my Tod's are all years old and beaten to hell. Excellent value regardless in my opinion. I would like to see some grained calf leathers in the future.

    Thanks guys,

    To answer the questions/comments

    - the orange is a nice vibrant orange, not apricot. I'll do the web pics tonight with my dslr and they will be accurate. The pic before was just taken on my phone.
    - $69.95 but you guys all get the 10% off discount on top of that.
    - there is only 8 of each colour to start so don't leave it too long to order them
    - I plan on extending the range of these quite a bit in the next 6 months
    - I may do an Aussie members knit tie next year also, maybe yellow with green dots or something.
    - cashmere ones will DEFINITELY be coming for next A/W

    We took our time with these to get them right and made a few subtle changes to what you see on most other knit ties. Firstly the weave is a smaller tighter weave and the silk a more matte silk, which both help to hold the knot in place better, which is a Big bugbear of mine on a lot of knot ties. We made them a bit wider at 7cm and a bit longer than most knit ties at about 146cm.

    If I'm motivated tonight I'll try get them up, but now it's time for a beer.

    There will be an opening special on them too, buy 2 knit ties (or full price ties) and get a free pair of pantherellas. More info to come on that special.

    I'll also be doing a "week of knit ties" next week where I'll wear each one everyday and post them up on here and tumblr.
