    Chuck, I love the cashmere ones, they look very promising. Cashmere ties can often look dull without texture and patterns. I'm a sportscoat fan myself and those would fit right in. The cerimonials are also both great. I've got a self colored paisley tie in navy and I love it. A cerimonial version is a great idea. Not too hot about the last batch though but I'm sure there will be takers.

    I guess I'm alone on this one. I like the matt finish of pure cashmere or wool. I wear them sometimes with smooth finished worsteds; I like the contrast. But then I also wear them with flannels; I like the similarity. The bottom line is, I just like those ties.

    I'm with you Manton. I wear cashmere ties and silk pocket squares with worsteds as well as flannels, when I can be a little less formal.

    Anxious to see the look on your face in NYC when you pick up one of these - if you don't love it, I'll do a tie eating demo [​IMG] ...I'm very tactile so the hand and texture is a primary concern for me, this stuff I've fallen in love with. Of course Cashmere is like pizza - when it's done right it is fabulous, when it isn't... well it is still pretty damned good. Most cashmere/wool tie fabrics won't work in a folded tie though - too bulky.

    Do you have one with a lot of blue? I would definitely buy one. [​IMG]

    Chuck, those are some beautiful ties. I'll have to buy one so I can see the fabric in person.

    I call dibs on one of the ivory paisleys. [​IMG] I think maybe you might want to order a few extra of that one, Chuck...

    Thx for the kind words, guys. Â They really are nice. Â Don't want to expound too much lest we get kicked over to the buying/selling forum . . . But yes, GorGekko, the herringbone stripe is navy blue with a pink stripe. Â This is another blue herringbone already in the collection that does not have a stripe. Â You can write us (me or Carlo) offline if you need more info. Brian ~ come to NY. Nick ~ You're absolutely right. Â I think it may be the fastest sellout yet. Â They're almost all spoken for already. Â We'll set a couple back for the expo though.

    Please please please save one of those navy blue herringbones with pink stripes for me [​IMG] And that navy blue cashmere one with the blue stripes. I can't fly to NYC, I live on the other side of the planet. The ivory paisley looks awesome, but I probably won't ever wear one. Edit: Hurr, I meant the cashmere one with the brown, with blue stripes.

    Conrad. Bring your scissors. I've found a way for you to earn those new rollerblades you wanted.

    Conrad ... you'd better make it quick. Someone's already trying to duplicate your technique and steal your resources.

    Well one of the first things we do with a new pattern is to gauge initial reaction and call in a re-order on the hits right away... lol. Â Nice to see some Paisley interest since we have 4 new ones coming out in a week. Â This one Red Paisley is getting redone in a silvery/black as well as a mixture of antique gold shades. Â There will be two paisleys that have a satin diagonal stripe in the same color as the field - know it sounds weird but it came out stunning. Â That one I'm holding my breath on until I see how the response is. Here's a better look at the ivory paisley in better lighting with a closeup of the fabric so you can see details. Â By changing the length of the stitch you get that 'sheen' as it bends that you don't get with a print. Â Next time someone says you are weird about your fabric fascination, tell'm you know a guy who turns silk 10 different ways in 10 different lighting situations to see how it does... that's WEIRD.

    Carlo, I could care less what people say, your ties are about the sexiest ties I have ever seen, and I am a tie collecting maniac. If that means you're weird or picky, so be it. I think the results speak for themselves. I'm gonna order one each of the paisleys (paislies?). Thanks for the closeup shot, that is one hot item. That tie is gonna look seriously pimp with my 3-piece pinstripe and black bowler. Yeah, baby.

    Aw hell, I might get one of those cream paisleys also, if only just to have.
