    The MJ Bale tie I bought off eBay recently is 8cm... don't know why they went to 7cm. I like 8 myself.

    Jason,

    Your website has turned insane at the moment (for me, at least) - on the 'ties' page all the images overlap and it's almost impossible to navigate.

    Really? I have two pairs of LE cotton/linen trou and like them a lot. I have a navy pair I wear once/week and a very light cream pair I haven't been game to wear at all yet :embar:

    Yes bear with it for a bit, the web guy is doing some work on it to fix some image issues. Should be back to normal within the hour.

    Based on having actually popped in to see Pat before the December hols, I would say - 'are garish' - is a sweeping statement.

    The ties I picked - an inky navy Drakes 50oz twill with widely spaced white spots, the same tie in chocolate brown, and a Drakes navy jacquard with white pindots- were anything but garish.

    Even if we're talking about the non-Drakes P Johnson ties, I didn't see many garish, clown designs. What I DID see was lots and lots of solid ties (wool, twill and grenadine).

    I agree that some of the pocket squares can be a little OTT.

    Lastly, I agree with the overall sentiment that shoulder and lapel width dictate how wide a tie should be; fortunately for me, the ideal tie width falls between 7-8.5cm, and for a knit, I can even go 6.5cm.

    This tie is 7cm:

    So is this:

    And this one is 8cm:

    Horses for courses.

    You are correct re: their new patterns - I was mistaken. You are also correct in saying that I was thinking of their LSD meets #menswear prints from last season.

    Now if only they would fix their widths!!!

    They also have some lovely looking knits in nice widths. Hmmm, may investigate further...

    That's a good way of putting it. I might try ironing out the creases and dressing them down a bit, see if that looks wearable. Other thing is that they're a little bit see-through and I don't own any white jocks...

    Agreed, though one must point out that there are *ahem* other local options that are significantly more keenly priced

    Only the drakes are 7cm
    the cashmere and 7folds are 8cm and 8.5cm in width [​IMG]

    I agree with CEP - 1cm width difference isnt that bad .. in fact its not just the final width but the gradient at which the tie narrows that also dictate how "skinny" or phat a tie looks
