    Can't wait to receive my first ET order, and I honestly don't know how it took me so long to learn about your store. Anyone who wants to build a pocket square collection, now's your chance--and while you're browsing the Drake's, don't sleep on the ET house brand!

    I just received a nice haul from ET - it was truly a joy to behold. The packaging is as exquisite as you would expect given the shop name. The goods they are selling truly are the best around. The pocket squares by Rubinacci are absolutely stunning.

    check out these colors!

    Does the SF10 discount apply to sale items?

    Does anyone know where to find a real life picture of the "wine" coloured grenadine? In the shop it looks brownish to me.

    I don't have a pic to hand, but I have the tie: it's a dark burgundy, but not brown at all in tone. A really nice strong, warm colour without being flashy. Buy it.

    Folks, the navy double striped grossa grenadine is a fantastic, beautiful tie.

    Carry on...

    Reminds me very much of one of my Drakes ties. Not exactly the same, but close enough. Either way, it's a very versatile tie.

    @Cleav

    Grenadine Grossa untipped, handrolled edges. Just threw it on (actually wearing a midnight ET grenadine with this fit, but this striped gren would work too).

    The quality seems to me very high. Edges are tight and precise, a light and airy tie. For us yanks, it's about $60-65 per tie (40 quid after SF discount, but there's shipping). Not cheap of course, but for a handmade grenadine, sewn in Italy...really good deal.

    For those looking to invest in some grenadines, a chocolate and midnight would be a good investment. This striped one isn't bad either.

    Picked up a couple of pockets squares from ET. The offering from Rubinacci is particularly beautiful.

    Cheapest place I could find everything Saphir for people from America.

    Haven't received yet but highly recommended so far... :)

    Just received my first couple of ties from ET. Fantastic stuff, will throw up some pics later.

    Also, huge kudos to Shaya in customer service, who resolved a minor order issue in a most admirable manner. Repeat customer here, for sure.
