How much wider does 9cm when wearing compared to 8cm?

I have several 8cm from shibumi and generally like the width and taper. I am considering the 9cm for the added length because 140cm is not long enough to expose the back blade. I am about 6 foot tall. But I am worried the 9cm might be too wide for my taste. I've read that the way tie are tapers makes a massive difference in appearance compared to actual width measurement. Would love to hear thoughts from anyone who went with 9cm. Thanks.

Are you no longer getting any gloves? I am a big fan and was looking forward to this season's colors.

Probably this helps you:
Shibumi (samurai?) square. Really enjoy this one. @Braddock i’d love to see more cream based wool/silk (or that cashmere/modal blend for S/S) squares in the future, especially if they could be slightly more eggshell/white leaning in hue.

There are some more in the making for next season. :)

We ordered new gloves for this winter, but unfortunately due to the corona situation a lot of factories got huge delays in production, so we decided to cancel the order. Otherwise we would have received them too late. However, we might have some few left in the showroom. Anything particular looking for?

A recent purchase from their anniversary sale:

Looks great! Nice contrast with the bright suit.

I think the only color I don't have that you've carried at some point in the past is red (and black, but I have the regular black leather ones).

I have:
  • Honey
  • Brown (not sure what the color is called, were my first pair, but between Honey and Espresso color-wise)
  • Espresso
  • Navy
  • Forest Green

Colors I'd be interested in:
  • the aforementioned red
  • wine/burgundy
  • purple
  • light grey
  • dark grey
There is no made-to-order possibility for the gloves, right?
My girlfriend would be interested as well, but she has tiny hands.
