    @Henry Carter makes some wonderful ties, pocket hankies, scarves and other stuff - I've been a fan for a while and have a few of his pieces from over the years that are among my favourite accessories. So in the vein of the Yellow Hook and other appreciation threads, I thought it would be nice to showcase a few of my favourite items from HC here. I also happen to know HC has a few other fans on the forum - @Journeyman, @Claghorn @Coxsackie I'm looking at you.

    I'll get the ball rolling with a few of my faves:

    Great work pop. That last tie is a real banger, fantastic colour and texture.

    I have a green knit zig zag I have to post...

    I'm sorry I didn't get that one but I did get the new reppe silk version. Will go exceptionally well with a db navy blazer, grey odd jacket etc. Very Ivy League.

    Jason can give a more precise answer, but my Henry Carter orders usually take about 2-2.5 weeks to the USA.

    That about right, I usually say 2 weeks but depends on where in the states too. In anycase bry2000 emailed me also (I think) this morning.

    Gerry has a better photo of it above, but here is me wearing my favourite wedding tie: the HC navy glen plaid.

    I like it a lot. That and the green are the two nicest, I think, he now carries. I believe the green pushed @Darkside to break his current tie buying hiatus.

    Well personally I already have a burgundy knit from HC so don't really have need for another solid burgundy tie at this point in time. OTOH I don't have that many striped ties in my collection, and I think the triple stripe one is quite unique and a bit playful at the same time - looks great with navy or grey jacket IMO.

    My new Henry Carter block stripes arrived yesterday. First outing for the green/brown:

    Like all of the HC ties I own, the finishing is excellent, the weight is perfect, and the knot is exactly the size I like.

    Can't post selfies like the other guys, because I rarely take them but in doing some moving around I noticed I had a bit of a henry carter collection happening. ties, socks and squares.

    One of my favourite ties full stop - the perfect winter tie IMO. HC, if you do get around to making a burgundy challis tie with little trouts on it put me down for one straight away!

    I would love to make this happen too, long been on my wish list. I'll start thinking about winter once the holidays are done and dusted.
