    And here's my double overhand knot. Look at the beauty of this ancient bespoke vintage ties 7 folds and all unlined and all hemmed by hand.

    This vintage grenadine is still available. If you send me a private message we make all the choices for a true bespoke. Thanks for everything.

    Doodals,

    PM Gianni. He'll send you a set of pics of all his wares. You choose. He'll rec' fold etc based on the sample you choose. You agree or instruct otherwise, add embroidered initials and other details if you wish of course. Pay. He gets to work.

    The whole experience is very interesting and rewarding. Gianni is one of the good guys.

    Wore one of mine today

    Sorry but this was over long ago. Unfortunately, because the quantity is limited vintage.

    Thanks Stitch

    Doodals, everything has a price...

    "Sorry but this was over long ago. Unfortunately, because the quantity is limited vintage."

    Seemingly the laws of supply and demand have an impact on price methinks :smarmy:

    Uncle Cleav,

    I received a PM that contradicts his former statement so I'll soon be able to copy you. [​IMG]

    I've never been a big fan of the Lagavulin. Ardbeg IMO does the best at balancing the peaty, medicinal flavors of islays against the other notes and if what you want is peat and iodine it's really hard to beat Laphroaig. Lagavulin always seemed to me like they couldn't decide which they wanted to do. I have not tried the PX cask but I suppose I should now. I like a good sherry finish from time to time. I've also been enjoying the bottle of Bunnahabhain I have at home. Pretty sure the other bottle I have at home is a Balvenie 16 year. It's also good, but I'm not as big of a fan of speysides as Islays.


    The best vodkas I ever had were in Kyiv. One was Russian Standard Platinum, which you would expect to be amazing. The other was a Ukranian label pepper vodka which we passed around pretty constantly. It was good stuff.

    This is the first example I have seen of double vadge in neckwear. Impressive.

    So there are many things anti-SF going on here. And I'm not sure I'd wear it in the wild, these days. But I still really like the way this looks. Felt like commenting on this.

    That's a different look but I like it.
    I like that SF has different looks.
