    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    You aren't 'throwing me under a bus': rust is not what I would call it in your picture or in real life.

    For reference: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rust_(color)

    And here is the pantone shade in question:

    Well, I would call it rust. Maybe it would be better if I simply said that it is the color I was expecting to receive. Don't matter much to me what it's called. I'll reiterate: the tie is the color I expected it to be, and I am pleased with it.

    Great! I'm very happy for you. I don't think I was saying that anyone else shouldn't be satisfied, only asking if there was anyone who felt the same as me: that the colour wasn't quite what they expected. The only reason I mentioned you is that you posted what seemed to me to be a very accurate depiction of the colour.

    As the saying goes, YMMV.

    I thought the colors looked representative. I personally didn't like the rust but also didn't order it.

    The green was 100!

    I must be the only one left who hasn't received theirs.

    Mine was apparently delivered to me on 6th of Jan but it is yet to arrive. Like @Cleav , i am expecting my 'ransom' demand but even that has yet to arrive.

    Is there any chance of a second round of this?

    I finally broke out my rusty last week and cannot speak highly enough of the fine quality of this silk. It's easily as fine as any other I own and could be above. Soft and light, I was devastated I hadn't bought the full run.

    @brillopad: Can't wait!

    Couple of sightings in the wild.

    I feel like I wore the green one too, but I can't find a picture of it.

    If anyone feels like they missed out on the navy, I'd be interested in selling you mine. Knotted once--just not quite what I was looking for. PM if you'd like to take it off my hands.

    Today.

    I am finding that, to get the size of knot I want, I have to employ a double four-in-hand. It's not a major irritant (yet) and I certainly have other ties that are less insubstantial than I find preferable, but I do find myself wishing these ties had a beefier lining.

    I think a thicker lining would introduce other issues; weight difference between lined and unlined tip; separation of silk from lining in the dimple; etc. It's really just the silk that was too thin on this. IMO. I love the look of the ties I got from this run but they definitely leave a kind of unsatisfactory feeling in how flimsy they are. I think Ed said next run will be a little heavier.

    I would have preferred a new run of Panta ties in a thicker all silk fabric, I'm not a fan of cotton-silk ties ... Any possibility to add all silk ties ? Thanks
