    I emailed with Shaya about Passaggio Cravatte the other night.

    I also took the opportunity to inform about the hangers. He told me he is doing everything to resolve the matter and has already paid for the hangers long ago. Based on my dealings with him over the past few years I believe that he is telling the truth. I do agree with other comments upthread that he needs to improve the communication with his clients. The silence only creates speculation which he shouldn't want. That being said Shaya has always been honest with me and delivered to me what he promissed, and made good if something went wrong. So I have agreed to accept that comunication sometimes brakes down or there being a sudden lapse of silence, because he has some great items for sale at generally pretty reasonable prices.

    That being said, he should have just made clear to his customers - that already prepaid the hangers - that there were issues and he was trying to resolve them. And deal with any issues or complaints directly. Anyway, based on my email exchange with him, I still believe the hangers will be arriving sometime soon.

    Hopefully this and the recent comments about lack of communication will be a warning for him and I hope that he will find a way to improve on these issues and bring communication with his customers up to the same level as that of most of the great products he is offering.

    Agree. I also told him he should do so. Let's hope he does.

    Re. PC I mainly discussed the garza tie agjiffy has been asking questions about and this was what I posted about that in the PC thread

    Just discovered this thread/store.
    Has anyone tried their house brand 'bespoke' cashmere ties? How to they hold up compared to hober/Capelli/etc? Prices with sf discount and ex vat look pretty unbelievable.

    (@tchoy@C&A I'm sure you guys have at least a half dozen already ;) )

    I've been a bit unsure about the tie your tie knots. C&A was kind enough to post a picture but I'm not sure the knot is as substantial as I would like, the way some 8cm ties can be. Do others have different experiences? I do like the raw silk colors though.

    Same concern though I will report back when I receive mine.My Vanda's make the best knot followed by my Capelli's.

    The SF discount is "sf10", right? I just tried using it on a Drake's tie that's on sale, and I got the message "Sorry, that code is not currently available." :confused: Oh well, prices are still pretty good. Is there another SF code?

    Of course it's not available for items that are on sale. Is 40-50% off not enough for you?

    I suppose he has disabled it during the sale. Drop him an email if you'd really like to know.

    Always advisable. SF's small affiliates are all great in my experience, but Shaya is especially generous to his SF regulars. It's always worth asking, especially if you're buying a few things at a time.
