mrs. stro has decided that a trip to florence in early/mid december sounds like a great idea. i'm sure she will get her way, but i'm curious as to whether or not shibumi's showroom is likely to be open at all around that time. i walked past it several times without realizing it on our last trip there and i sure would like to rectify that mistake at my next opportunity.
Our showroom is open Monday - Friday from 9am - 6pm (at least, usually I stay there longer). If you wanna come on the weekend, no problem at all, just let me know and I'll make sure me or someone of our staff will be there.

Has anyone had a tie made up in either Floral Printed Silk Bespoke Tie - Grey or Floral Printed Silk Bespoke Tie - Burgundy II and could post pictures of? Only a small "swatch" on the website for each, be interested to see how they look on a full tie. TIA!

On bespoke ties, can somebody speak to the "7-fold hand rolled" option? Is it a true, totally unlined 7-fold, or, essentially, a lined 6-fold?
If the former, anybody know if it's possible to request a lined 6 in lieu of a totally unlined 7? They are stunning, just not for me. I have a devil of a time tying them. I feel as though I'd need a 5" tie to make a proper knot of one.

What exactly would you lick to see? I can take more pics for you. But no, they're definitely shorter; will tell you the exact length tomorrow.

I could take a pic of this one, as we just received one of this today: https://shibumi-firenze.com/bespoke-ties/2793/floral-printed-bespoke-silk-tie-grey-ii

But I'm sorry, I don't have a pic of the other grey one and the burgundy II.

Sure, just tell me the order number.

Our 7-fold ties are true 7-fold ties without any interlining. In fact, inside the ties are 7-folds, but the blades we make with 9-folds if the fabric isn't too heavy.

@Braddock - if we do the bespoke ties without the 3 or 7 fold option, do the ties come with interlining?

I just got 2 that are hand rolled no interlining and they are Beautiful But I tie prince Albert's and beat the hell out of them.

So I bought a new tie on Friday. I received the shipping notification yesterday morning and the tie was delivered in New York today. That’s just crazy fast. Thank you!

Trying to order something off the site but it won't let me enter my credit card information for some reason.

I placed an order for my first Shibumi ties on Wednesday evening, and received them on Monday morning. I concur; super fast shipping.
