    Quite a few of the new seasons ones are, all up towards the top of the ties page. The ones that are the lighter construction are all marked as un-tipped with hand rolled edges and lightly lined.
    Off the top of my head, brown printed silk, maroon grenadine, plum grenadine (this just sold out), caramel twill (sold out) and the champagne stripe (quite a thick silk though). Out of all, taking in to account the lighter construction and silk weight, the brown printed silk is the lightest out of them all.

    I'll be adding a few more printed silks before Xmas in a small order I have coming. It's important to note though that many silks, mainly woven aren't suited to this lighter construction with no tipping because the back of the fabric needs to be covered with tipping, simply due to the back of the weave being visible and not that pleasing to look at, so it needs to be covered. That's why printed silks and plainer fabrics like twill and grenadines are suited to it. I'll elaborate a bit on it with some images tonight when I'm in front of the computer.

    Out of curiosity, how many of you regular posters have kids?

    I know Rob has a child, Charlie has one on the way and FXH said he bought a suit for his kid, anyone else?

    I was booked to do it but have been rehabilitating a hip problem for the past few months and am still way off running that distance. Disappointed as I thought it was a great event last year.

    You and me both. I'm a completely addicted fly fisherman now and sadly must admit it takes up my thoughts about 90% of the time! I'm mostly land based too and trout fish 95% of the time unless down the sth coast. I probably release 95 out of every 100 trout I catch but must admit that a freshly caught rainbow baked in foil with lemon, butter and thyme is pretty hard to beat.

    Gerry your shoe collection deserves a thread on the main forum with the heading "Is this the perfect shoe collection? Discuss."

    My little guy is 10 days old today. First day back at work tomorrow :(
