    Always a pleasure to meet a SFer and chat menswear. Only wished I could have stayed longer. Hope you enjoy the tie!

    Just picked up my ties from Harry, and here are my initial thoughts:

    1. The presentation is fantastic. Nice box with a hand written letter from Harry.

    2. First tie is a 100% silk navy with white pin dots. I compared the silk with a recent Drake's I purchased, and the feel, drape and texture are very similar. Will show pics of how it knots when I wear it for the first time. Overall, very impressed.

    3. Second tie is the brown fina grenadine. Compared it to a grenadine I purchased from a very well known Savile Row tailor and an igent approved Italian tie maker, and the H.N. White is definitely notches above. Nice silk, drape and texture.

    In conclusion: Extremely impressed by the quality of the ties. Will be ordering more from Harry before the New Year.

    And will post pics in the wild very soon.

    Thanks again Harry!

    8cm please! This isn't just a fashion thing, it's just that if one is under six foot tall and of normal build 9cm is just too wide.

    Thanks for the feedback guys. Will try to get some 8cm in the more unique designs made up for January.

    Anything in particular you want to see?

    I like some paisley madder. Maybe some wool challis too.

    I'm actually rather looking forward to the mogadors you announced. Also, I'm rather interested in the dark brown grenadine, just to check, is is best compared to, say, dark chocolate in tone? Photographs don't always convey colour well...

    The sizes 145/8 cm for the shorter guys and 155/9 cm for the taller ones (like me) might give you a unique market position compared to others, in particular for staple designs.

    I would be interested in wool challis (e.g. navy with brown) or madder with slighly larger, but subdued patterns (not paisley).

    Finally a high quality yet reasonably priced tie maker, with ties in a 9cm width! (Apart from Vanda and Sam Hober of course) I have come across many nice designs from high quality tie makers that I could not use because they were too thin. I hope that this brand continues to grow so that more designs can be offered.

    Edit: In particular, personally, I would like to see more striped designs, both printed and woven, but especially the latter. Vanda and Hober have put out some great striped grenadines. To me, ties are meant for business occasions and I've since eschewed non-silk ties and unfinished (raw, tussah or shantung) silk ties, as well as ties that do not have a dark coloured base (navy, burgundy, dark brown and dark grey). Sadly there appears to be a dearth of silk ties with a dark grey base, and hopefully HNW will offer these in time to come.
