Of course you do
Besides the lining and the sewing, which was already mentioned by Manton, what exactly is the difference?
Main difference would surely be the selection of silks.
The Vanda stuff is sewn very well. Sewn better than the multitude of Drakes London ties I own for sure.
The best sewing I have seen is surely by Sam Hober.
Vanda is fine... ...so long as you like 1 of the 6 ties they make. That's if you're able to buy it quickly before it runs out of stock.
I'd selected 3 to buy, but then noticed that the minimum length offered is too long.
35 euros to London?. That's not right.
Email him after placing your order, and he'll make'em any length you want. I went with 57", and it was no trouble.
That's his flate rate for worldwide shipping. At least its an improvement on the 50 euros he was charging a few days ago!
For those who didn't see this on Put This On
This is what I wanted - I didn't mean "comparison" as in rank one vs. the other, but comparison in the sense of what are the differences between them. For instance, does Cappelli give rounded, plump edges like Vanda or are they more flat-pressed?
Serious question on Vanda - do they ever actually have anything in-stock? Everytime I've been to the site, they have 6-8 different ties, and they're all always sold out.
