Sam Hober College Reppe Stripe Designs - New Ideas Sought We are currently busy 7 days a week working on our backlog of necktie orders, but as soon as we catch up I want to have new college ties woven. Also military and organization/group ideas will be considered. As an example we have an Afghanistan campaign medal tie that was designed by a client who is a US army veteran. We also have a Concordia silk that was designed by a client who sails a Concordia. It takes some time to work on the colors and patterns so I am starting now. In the first round of college/school designs we thought about the weave and finally decided to go with the classic reppe weave and English silk as opposed to a modern version with a jacquard weave and Italian silk. Please note that Pantone colors are quite helpful but not exact as silk colors look different. Also if you have any stories about how the school colors came about that would be fun to read and can provide direction to the proper shade. Please let me know the width of the stripes that you think would look good. Thank you and looking forward to hearing your ideas.
