    Sorry if this has already been clarified and I missed it, but in the original posting the A swatches looked like they would be cut with a horizontal and vertical pattern, and the B looked looked diagonal. Now that the swatches are up on Massdrop this looks reversed. As I much prefer the diagonal patterns I didn't vote for any A patterns as I assumed (perhaps incorrectly) none of them would be diagonal. I like the B patterns chosen but it now appears that they aren't going to be diagonal after all, is this correct? The discrepancy between the originally posted swatches and the current swatches has me a little confused about what the final product will look like.

    Original B12:

    B12 on Massdrop:

    Do we definitively know which one will be the final product?

    So the Massdrop photos are correct and the originals were incorrect. Bummer, as I and probably others would have voted differently had the original photos reflected the actual tie patterns.

    Definitely +1 to this.


    Ok, I think I get it now. The original swatches were not shown on the bias that the tie will be made from (as there is only one direction of fabric bias that will drape correctly), and I incorrectly assumed they were. I guess if you are only interested in looking at the pattern and colors it doesn't make any difference, but if you care about the orientation of diagonal vs horizontal it certainly does.

    I am very happy that a blue was offered, I'm in for blue and brown (large pattern) and the small pattern in rust....

    Very excited to see the final product
